Who I'm Looking For:

The short version:

Let's meet up and see where it takes us. I want something, something that could pan out, but mostly I just want something happy.

The long version:

I'm looking for someone to spend some serious time with, but not necessarily to settle down. I'd like to start at casual dating, but open to seeing if it leads to something more, or something less. I've done serious relationships, but I've been around, too. Everyone has a story, some history, some baggage. Share it, I'll share mine.

I'm looking for someone who is spontaneous - but spontaneous does not necessarily mean someone who wants to go out all the time. Spontaneous can simply be waking up at 2 am and going on a food run. Or jogging at random times. Or cooking something we've never tried before. Or watching a movie. Basically, I want someone who has their own initiative, like me, but who also would like a companion for randomness, like me. I like adventure, but you don't have to fly around the world or $pend like crazy to find it.

Someone who cares about their appearance - both in terms of fashion and in terms of fitness. You don't have to be a model, but there's just no physical attraction after a certain point. Sweatpants aren't for public, but you don't need to wear 4" stilettos everywhere either. Comfortable, but not lazy. Creative, but but not overdressed.

And I will update this from time to time. Because life is a journey, not a destination, and we adjust the course as we go.

About me (Only one version):

I'm racking up some work experience in the lab where I copyedit research articles and grant proposals while I build up my freelance editing business. My long-term goal is to do freelance full-time.

My family is hugely important to me, and it's important to have someone who understands that family is a priority, but it's not like I hang out with them regularly or anything. I'd like to find someone with similar views on this.

I love going to the movies, I love going out for a casual time on the town, I love getting dressed up, I love staying in. But if you let me in Barnes & Noble... be prepared to drag me away because I can spend a whole weekend there.

I am not sarcastic. Sarcasm is the lowest form of wit. It boggles me that so many people consider it a bragging right.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working on my freelance editing business.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
-Being helpful because I love-->(see next line)
-MacGuyver-ing things! I'll fix it, regardless of proper tools or prior knowledge.
-Finding a truly inappropriate comment to almost any situation... that's funny to me... and hopefully you as well.
-Nerdy references.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My clothes or my sense of humor. Or that I'm usually wearing boots.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Movies: Pretty much anything science fiction or supernatural horror - I live a real life, why would I want to immerse myself into something I could live myself?

Books: Mostly the same, although I do greatly enjoy Victorian literature as well. Henry James may be my favorite author, although Edith Wharton and a few others do hold me in sway. And don't ever think that I can go to Barnes without stopping by the graphic novels section.

Food: ... pretty much ALL, but I love trying new cuisine. Wow me. Surprise me.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
-Good conversation
-My family
-My friends
-The freedom to travel
-Good food
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Everything. But mostly the meaningless things, because they're the most entertaining.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
out with friends, or watching a movie, or reading. I dunno... there's a typical Friday night?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I like sappy movies, but never alone.
