I find this process more awkward the more I engage in it... my verbal eloquence may be somewhat compromised :)
I am now in my last year of residency at Emory University (I graduate in June 2013, yay!). I am in the psychiatry residency program. For all of you who believe that psychiatrists are telepathic, let me clear that one up for you... I can not read minds. I also prefer not to analyze people on first meeting them--however, if you do act wacky, I am obliged to have an opinion;)
I grew up in a household steeped with cultural pride, so I find myself a relatively good mix between E and W. I am constantly looking at ways to connect with my heritage. Meditation are spirituality play a large role in my life, however, I do not require this of the person I am with---I only ask that these needs be respected in my life and furthermore, that my partner has the capacity to have an open mind about them.
I have lived a pretty interesting life (or so my friends tell me, but they're biased) thus far, I have explored interests in law, art/music, environmental conservation, and medicine (and now more so the psychiatric component). I have been lucky to live and work in numerous places in my life. I love what I do because I get paid to learn more about people and what motivates them... I would prefer not take my work home, but sometimes (like when I am on call)... it happens.
My friends describe me as having a dry/wry sense of humor- (namely about myself), occasionally being a goof, someone who is easy to talk with, a good listener, at times a ridiculously passionate nutball, honest, and someone who shows up when she says she will (even though I may be late). But why depend on descriptors when you can just meet me?
I am looking for someone who has mature life experiences (lived alone, supported themselves, knows how to cook or is willing to learn, knows how to compromise, has been able to maintain steady relationships (not just romantic but otherwise) over a long period of time, some one who can handle not being the center of attention at all times, etc) and who can be supportive and also be open to being supported. I assure you that I only ask for what I believe I have been able to achieve myself. I would appreciate someone who is interested in communicating and working out disagreements (as they are inevitable). Moreover, I hope that I can meet a person who is well aware of what they want in a relationship and life in general.
I hope you are successful in your search for a life partner, thanks for reading my profile.nnI grew up in a small town in the middle of nowhere in PA. My father was a physician and my mother raised 7 kids (yes you read that right). I come from a big family, which is a mixture of caring and good-willed pushiness (which big family isn't?). Although I have two older biologial siblings (my sister and brother) I grew up with cousins who I consider brothers and sisters too (hence 7 as opposed to 3).
