My son would like to say a few words here:
Sai Krishna here. I want to make sure I communicate my preferences clearly. (This site seems to be adding way too many spaces between paragraphs)
1. I am fairly close to my family and I am looking for someone who is comfortable with it. I want to make this clear at the very outset. I prefer someone who values their relationship with their family as much as I do with my own.
2. I intend to return to India in the foreseeable future. Primarily because I wish to be close to my family. I am fascinated by startups and the opportunity they present. I like to build things ground-up. This comes with its own set of risks and rewards. I want someone who is on board with that.
I am not a Software Engineer. I am a Data Scientist. That's a fancy way of saying Applied Statistician. I however work quite a bit with computers and software. I prefer someone who is from a field that is different than my own, although it's not a deal-breaker. I am fairly successful in my career and I would like someone who is passionate about their career as well.
I am pretty straight-forward (not rude) in my communication and prefer someone who is the same. I tend to get along with people who are opinionated but reasonable. Most importantly, I am drawn to those who can laugh at themselves. I absolutely don't get along with those who are pretentious, unreasonable or don't communicate clearly.
It doesn't take much to break me out of my shell. I tend to be jovial once I have warmed up to someone. My sense of humour is best described as dark, often self-deprecating. And yeah, I have done a few standup open-mics. (Ask me about it). I am often found turning serious situations into a laugh-fest.
I am INTJ on Briggs Myers test. So I tend to want some personal space sometimes. Which means, you get some space too.
I am fairly liberal socially. I have close friends of all ethnicities, religions etc. I judge a person by their actions and intentions, not background. Politically, I am center-right. And I am passionate about my political views. I have deep respect for my religious and cultural traditions and try to stay rooted to the extent possible.
Having grown up in a middle-class family in Hyderabad and currently living abroad, I think I have found a good balance of the traditional and modern for myself. I appreciate Carnatic music, go to the temple on major festivals, explore our spiritual heritage, take an interest in matters that affect our community; Also, I love progressive rock, taking the dog out for a run and hanging out with friends at a coffee shop or bowling alley.
I value people and ideas over money and fame, hands-down. I tend to be a minimalist and utilitarian in my acquisition of material possessions (Not a miser).
Respect is a big part of my value system. To me, respect is not about overt signs of deference but an implicit sentiment. I respect people for who they are by default (not based on their looks, wealth, intellect etc.). I do not take lightly to me or my loved ones being disrespected.
I am being open about these things because the way I see it, if we can't be great friends, we probably shouldn't be partners.
Hobbies & Interests:
I am into healthy living and fitness but I am not super sporty. Sure, I'll play ping pong, or badminton or tennis once a while. But you'll rarely hear me rave about my team or whatever. Love the outdoors! Always down to go hiking, swimming or hit the gym. Some weekends though, I prefer to stay in and binge-watch a series. Not a busy bee who's always looking to do something.
I think I have a flair for languages and am currently learning a new one. Of late, have been spending more of my free time reading books. Non-fiction interests me over fiction.
Not big on movies. I watch them for the company or exceptional content. More into TV series.
