I am a better listener than a conversation starter. I am trying to get better at that though. I have a great interest in learning the good from other cultures. I developed this interest while living in northeast China and in South Korea. I taught English as a second language for five years while in those countries. I like to cook. I am in my mid-thirties. I figure that's some important information to include in a dating profile. I currently live in the Midwest.
I am working through an online bachelors of education elementary education program. Since I have been back in the states I have begun to miss living overseas in Asia. Working there as an English teacher was a good fit for me career wise. I am not saying I liked it enough to give up my American passport, just that I liked it enough to make frequent use of my passport working and living there and returning stateside for regular visits with immediate and extended family. To be honest, one of the things that is keeping me from heading back over is my singleness, and this is why I'm taking advantage of this dating site.
I've read several profiles, and there doesn't seem to be a lack of women who share my commitment to the gospel. That's wonderful. In matters of lesser importance, I am looking for someone who isn't afraid to travel outside of the United States, and outside of her comfort zone. As far as long distance relationships are concerned, I've had a couple, & have some idea of the challenges involved, & am willing to accept those challenges as part of my dating life.
Hope to meet someone through this site.
I think Kansas is an awesome place to live. The cost of living is reasonable, & the state is well governed. I just don’t feel like it’s where I’m meant to be though. I also haven’t found the career opportunities I find desirable. Most of what I have come across around here is retail, & manufacturing and engineering. I have taken on work in the local school district as a substitute teacher and a substitute para-educator which has been enjoyable but certainly isn't a full time (span style="font-weight:bold;")occupation.
I teach the twelve and thirteen year old Sunday school class. I like the new curriculum because it asks more of both the teacher and the youth, and I have learned in the past that when God asks more of you, it’s meant to be a blessing for your life and the lives of those close to you.
