Apologies if this is too long but my name's Gaurav (the pronunciation is a conversation starter in itself haha). I like meeting new people, which is why I'm here in addition to trying to find that special someone with whom to discover the world and see places, not just 'hang out' and watch TV or something (though that's fine too). I really like reading and being up to date on everything that's going on in this wide world. I grew up playing the piano, even set up a very nice college band back in India and I'm trying to reprise that hobby once again. I've been trying to skilately and I sure hope to get more of it done next winter. I like outdoorsy stuff but I get bored doing it alone and need someone to egg me on or give me company. I love learning new languages - started off with Mandarin Chinese - I'm looking forward to brush up on it and maybe move on to Spanish.
I try my best to add a personal touch to my apartment and it was fun getting set up here after I moved. Cooking's a hobby though I do kinda spend a bit too much time cleaning up the dishes. Keeping everything clean, well organized and ordered is very important to me. I don't party much and I don't get drunk ever - if I do drink it might be a few times (and a glass or 2 at that) socially each year. As far as video games go, I do love them but I suck when I try playing against all those little kids online that are insanely good! I don't play more than twice a week really. Since I've finished with grad school, I've been making a lot more time for working out and I've been controlling my diet to lose weight much more effectively. Travel is another passion and I've seen a decent number of countries - from Thailand to Egypt to China to the UK to the US, not to mention traveling all over India. I do love fast, well-handling yet somewhat practical cars and transport is not just getting from Point A to Point B for me. I'd gladly take a long drive without knowing exactly where I wanted to go for the love of driving, especially if the company's pleasurable. I love animals, I'm fine with pets both large and small (as long as you don't have a Bengal Tiger stashed away in your apartment :P).
I'm not especially religious (yes I do pray every day) but I find God a good source of inspiration to do good, and I really like helping people out even if there's nothing in it for me. I'm loyal as hell and there's nothing in the world that can tempt me when my mind is set on the right person. I know this 'summary' is turning out to be rather long-winded, so I'll stop here and let you decide whether you find me interesting and would like to chat. Send me a message if there's anything else you'd like to know.
