►►►Please make sure to click 'read more' to see everything I've written in this section▼▼▼ Hello. (-: My name is Chris, and I live permanently in Hawaii, USA. I am both a U.S. citizen and a Norwegian citizen. I grew up in Scandinavia (Norway), North-West Europe, but I became a U.S. citizen several years ago. I am open to meeting a woman of any ethnicity/nationality - what is important to me is that you are honest, intelligent, open to learning - open to new ideas, enjoy and appreciate nature, and serious about meeting a kind and interesting person. I am, in many ways, very different from the typical Western person - my mind and my heart are often more at home with Eastern ways of thinking, and living in Hawaii - near the center of the Pacific Ocean - seems to suit me very well. I love animals, especially German Shepherd dogs; I do not currently have one. Would be nice to meet a person who cares not only about humans, but all sentient beings in general given that we are one of countless animal species, not a special being that stands above and apart from the rest of nature. I should point out that I do not follow any religion. I see Buddhism as a philosophy, a set of very helpful methods and ideas, and out of all the well-known systems of thought, I feel most at home with Buddhist teachings. I believe I can accurately be described as highly spiritual - I feel a deep connection with and appreciation of nature and the Universe. I can walk in the mountains, stand in the forest, or sit at the edge of the ocean and get tears in my eyes just looking at the beauty of nature and the considering the mystery of existence. I take very good care of my health by eating well (most of the time, not all the time!), exercise, using several natural supplements (plant/fruit/vegetable extracts), and working on feeling content and at peace by doing meditation practice. Also, I am known for extensive use of logic and reason, and normally spot illogical thinking almost instantly. Related to that, it is appropriate to mention that I will never get upset when someone points out that I've made a mistake. If it appears that I was wrong, I will admit it as soon as I understand that I was mistaken. I like truth and clarity in situations where that is possible, and when I am uncertain of something or simply don't know, I make that clear as well. :-) I have lived in Hawaii 4 years, and I am quite certain I will live here for life, though I may eventually also get a small second home in New Zealand in order to spend a few months there from time to time (the three islands on this planet I love the most are Maui, Hawaii, and the South Island of New Zealand (least populated and largest of the main islands). Briefly, some of my interests: hiking in the the high mountain forests where the air is cool and fresh (I know more great hiking locations high up in the mountains than just about anyone on the islands of Maui and Hawaii), swimming, and reading (topics: astronomy/astrophysics - not astrology, physics, psychology, neuroscience, philosophy, history, and many more). I seriously want to learn kitesurfing in the future  I have degrees in finance, international business, computer science, and law (my 1 choice for major was astrophysics, but coming from Norway as an international student, I was restricted to whatever I could get funding for from the Norwegian state, and none of the sciences except computer science was on the list of majors approved for scholarships). For work, I privately manage money for myself, a few family members, and a few clients. I never get involved with more than a single woman at the same time, and have no interest in being with someone who may want to see other men at the same time. I am not the jealous type, however, and I trust the woman I am with unless she gives me good reason not to trust her. I have never cheated on anyone I've been with (even during the last three years of a marriage where things were not going well almost exclusively due to a lack of common interests), and I am quite sure no one I have been with have cheated on me. I am very loyal - no cheating, no seeing any other women. A life-long relationship with a woman who I fit extremely well together with is my dream, and I will - if I am confident I've met the right woman - agree to marriage if it important (or necessary due to citizenship/residency issues) for her to marry. I personally do not need a piece of paper saying I am married in order to be just as serious about the relationship (or as loyal and caring); if you ever 'steal' my heart, then you have it completely regardless of whether we get married. Look forward to hearing from interesting women who hopefully share at least some of my main interests. I have many good qualities that the right woman will appreciate very much. Hopefully you are in good shape and up for walking in the mountains and the forests from time to time. ;-) Chris P.S. An indication of my spiritual views via the words of Albert Einstein: "The most beautiful experience we can have is the mysterious. It is the fundamental emotion that stands at the cradle of true art and true science. Whoever does not know it and can no longer wonder, no longer marvel, is as good as dead, and his eyes are dimmed. It was the experience of mystery -- even if mixed with fear -- that engendered religion. A knowledge of the existence of something we cannot penetrate, our perceptions of the profoundest reason and the most radiant beauty, which only in their most primitive forms are accessible to our minds: it is this knowledge and this emotion that constitute true religiosity. In this sense, and only this sense, I am a deeply religious man... I am satisfied with the mystery of life's eternity and with a knowledge, a sense, of the marvelous structure of existence -- as well as the humble attempt to understand even a tiny portion of the Reason that manifests itself in nature." P.P.S. My general view on politics, also in the words of Albert Einstein: "My political ideal is democracy. Let every man be respected as an individual and no man idolized. It is an irony of fate that I myself have been the recipient of excessive admiration and reverence from my fellow-beings, through no fault, and no merit, of my own. The cause of this may well be the desire, unattainable for many, to understand the few ideas to which I have with my feeble powers attained through ceaseless struggle. I am quite aware that for any organization to reach its goals, one man must do the thinking and directing and generally bear the responsibility. But the led must not be coerced, they must be able to choose their leader. In my opinion, an autocratic system of coercion soon degenerates; force attracts men of low morality... The really valuable thing in the pageant of human life seems to me not the political state, but the creative, sentient individual, the personality; it alone creates the noble and the sublime, while the herd as such remains dull in thought and dull in feeling.
