I am honest and a deep-thinker, but at the same time, love to laugh and socialize. My friends and colleagues would most likely describe me as loyal, funny, brainy, and outspoken. I love my family and friends, and try my best to be there for them. My potential mate should do the same. I value education and learning, and enjoy my profession as a teacher. Having said that, I realize that book knowledge does not always equate intelligence or common sense. I am an open-minded person with very eclectic taste. I have many interests and passions. I like to learn and explore. I have learned a lot about myself and about the world through travel, and especially, through living and studying abroad. I am happiest by the sea, or on a beautiful fall day, or cooking for friends, or sitting and talking for hours over wine. I am looking for someone to share those things, and to introduce me to new interests too.
The quality most important to me is honesty. I am looking for someone who knows who he is, and what he wants in terms of a relationship. I would like to find someone who, like me, has a combination of depth and humor. My ideal match is someone who likes to socialize, try new things, and can carry on a damned good conversation.
