Allright, now just be a dear and throw one of your physicists here to my direction (not the old ones, of course), please!

Nah, just kidding, I am not a classic kind of woman, I can't stand men with serious professions, scholars and the sort, too stiff for me. I love watching comedies, some are a little crude, I just watched Stepbrothers and I laughed a lot, imagine taking a physicist to watch that. Or taking him to my favorite burger place. Me and a physicist, it would be like mixing water and oil. You can keep all of them with my blessings.

I am just glad I don't have to worry about dating ... happily married for 13 years. :)

Some of these stories scare me. It is rough out there.Take care all.
Blessed are you who has given each man a shield of loneliness so that he cannot forget you. You are the truth of loneliness, and only your name addresses it. Strengthen my loneliness that I may be healed in your name, which is beyond all consolations that are uttered on this earth. Only in your name can I stand in the rush of time, only when this loneliness is yours can I lift my sins toward your mercy.

I worked with several physicists in my last job. They're normal people. They like burgers and goofy movies as much as anyone else.

But I guess they weren't "theoretical" physicists, so they wouldn't pass tina's muster. She must like theoretical physicists because they spend their time doing incredibly important things, such as writing grant applications.

I changed my name because I like this one.

From a primary perspective, and getting a degree in engineering, there's the extreme cases that people associate as stereotypes, but for the most part these kinds of people (myself included) can be as quirk and eccentric as the next artist on the extreme end of the spectrum.

It's just a matter of preference. I tend to stay away from the 3 forbiddens (sex, religion, politics) unless I'm with certain crowds, certain girls, or if she brings it up. Even then I prefer to get off of it before the typical polemical 'misunderstanding' happens.

Above all else, if they don't have personality it's dead in the water.

You look fine and seem like a fun person to hang around with, so there's no doubt that you'll find somebody. It's just that you may be looking in the wrong places. Hsinchu from my understanding (through friend's parents, potential employers, etc), or at least where you are by Chiao-Tung, Tsinghwa and the science park, is full of people who fall under your criteria, but most of them may be too goal- and career-oriented to date at the moment.

Fluent English speakers who aren't Anglo-Saxon are hard to find - but there should be; I'm keeping my hopes up. People look at me funny when I struggle to describe stuff in Chinese (or accidentally blurt out something in English) because they expect me to fully comprehend everything since I don't look any different than they are, despite the fact that I've spent most of my life living outside Taiwan.
Apparently I beeeotch a lot about everything on message boards - be forewarned.
