I can describe myself as someone with a good sense of humor, adventurous and passionate. I like reading, writing, working out, playing soccer, taking long walks, going to the beach and traveling. I also enjoy having intellectual conversations that involve critical thinking, philosophy and Economics/Politics. I believe in maintaining a balance in life by taking care of the brain and intellect by education, the heart and soul by prayers and meditation, and the body by exercising. Understanding our mission in life makes us realize that life is meant to be shared with that significant other. I am interested in someone down to earth, honest and caring. I am not perfect and do not expect my partner to be. Marriage/relationshi p is a big responsibility and a life time decision; thus selecting a mate should not be based solely on the outside beauty. Since beauty fades away over time, it is the inside beauty that enhances love, and allows it to grow in the long run. While mutual attraction is a necessity in any relationship mercy, affection and sacrifice are crucial factors for sustaining a lasting successful marriage. Sweet impressive words and the dos/donts of the dating game usually fail the test of sharing life with someone under same roof. This is because a solid lasting relationship can not be built on physical lust, imaginations, fantasies and unreal expectations but rather sacrifice, patience, and most importantly working together to overcome challenges in life.
