Indu Shanmugam is a 20-something, college student from Oregon, USA. She is majoring in English literature and language. She also studied Theology for a short period. She wants to be a teacher. As a literature enthusiast, she enjoys literature of all types and from writers of various backgrounds from the classics, French realists, Christian writings like C.S Lewis and South Asian literature. As for her own writings, "I am still trying to find and develop my own voice." She sees the art of the written word as a way to speak about Christ and explore truth. Before she met Jesus Christ, she has been searching for the meaning of life through experimentation of other religions, philosophies and ideas. At the age of 17, she accepted Christ after a powerful encounter with God through a miracle. God's presence and deep truths in the Bible fuel her creativity. She is involved in church activities and has a love for the church and would like to see every believer grow, become closer to God and live fruitfully. She loves traveling, sipping bubble teas, theatre, music, films and hanging out with friends and has a weakness for cheesecake.
His own sense of style: The guy should have some sense of style. He doesn't have to buy the most expensive clothes. But he should at least not be sloppy. I'd then think he can't take care of himself. I don't like the overly metro style. Some of it is fine. I also don't like Emo style or Abercrombie like rugby stripped shirts. Both remind me too much of high school.
Taller than me: He has to be taller than me even when I wear heels.
Brunettes not Blonds: This is more of a personal preference, but I don't find blond haired guys that attractive. For race...don't really have a preference. But, I have to say I don't want the typical Desi guy or culturally stupid American (or Indian, or insert nationality)...Then again, I have a tendency to easily scare these guys off. I don't think a typical malayalee penti cannot handle me well. lol
Older Guys: I can't help it but get attracted to guys who are slightly older than me like thirties. I'd draw the line at 35, otherwise it'll be too weird. My parents will probably not like this at all.
Outgoing personality and how he carries himself. I can't stand guys who brag, talk crap, make stupidly offensive jokes. Oh yea...some of them are supposed to be Christian, church-going guys I have heard unbelievable stuff from Christians (probably the overly sheltered types) Some of them, I just want to smack them.
