Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am currently doing med/grad school at a certain local university
which is sadly lacking in Division I sports, and when I grow up I
want to be a cancer doc and do cancer biology research. I'm looking
for a lady who's smart, creative, passionate, and funny. I want to
end up with someone who knows who she is and what she wants, is
perhaps slightly insane, but is able to keep up the illusion that
she has her shit together.
I gravitate toward people who are fascinated by how the world
around them works, and have strong opinions about the way things
SHOULD work. I studied literature and music and I still compose and
write short stories in my spare time. I like to explore and accrue
new experiences and I'm always up for trying new things as long as
they aren't patently bad ideas. And even then, I'm sometimes
Things that make me smile:
--Nature, double helices, my dear old Indiana Hoosiers, interracial
couples, utility kilts, people drinking coffee
Things that make me frown:
--Doing things "ironically," jerks, suburbia, moldy fruit, traffic
Things that make me barf:
--Single-issue voters, monotony, obvious jeggings

When I was a younger lad and grew my hair out I would get "Frodo!",
when I was in London and wore my glasses I got "Potter!", and when
my hair's shorter, black people in Saint Louis call me "Timberlake"
and start singing their favorite JT song when I'm around.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Some recent reads: Tender is the Night, Lolita, Ender's Game, City
of Scoundrels, Suburban Nation, The Youngest Science, The Story of
Philosophy, Memoir of a Debulked Woman, King Edward III.
Shows: I love "classical" music and theater but also any kind of
live music that doesn't totally suck (esp. small venues like the
Firebird, Venice Cafe, Cicero's), art galleries, comedy, burlesque,
etc. I enjoy performances that are energetic and/or weird.
Food: anything ethnic
Music: Any kind of live (non-classical) music but especially the
Romantic and especially-specially German romantic i.e. Beethoven,
Brahms, Schumann, and in moderate doses, Wagner. I would argue (and
yes, I will gladly argue aesthetics) that music is the most
beautiful art. :)
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1) Exercise, because lately I've sublimated all of my sexual
frustration into frenetically heaving metal objects up and down and
running in place...
3) Sriracha sauce, which I manage to smear on everything, including
my eyeballs when I take my contacts out and let me tell you, it
burns like hell
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I ate the last cookie, and it was really good!
UPDATE: I now regret eating that cookie. It was clearly more yours
than mine, and I had already eaten 5 other cookies. Also, I felt
kinda sick afterwards.

You're a clever girl, nice to strangers but harsh on hypocrites,
striving for something beautiful and esoteric.
