Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hello! I'm a PhD. chemist who spent most of my 20's in the small
college town of Pullman, Washington pursuing my education. And then
through a series of mishaps I ended up in Tallahassee, Florida for
a year (fuck that place btw) and now I'm living in Knoxville and
working in Oak Ridge.
While I was in Pullman, aside from the academics, I tried to keep
active and worked my way up to a third degree black belt in
taekwondo. Unfortunately after moving to florida I couldn't find a
school I liked enough to continue my training, so I'm quite a bit
out of practice. But I'm trying out kickboxing to keep sharp.
I'm a silly and caring guy who is looking for something serious.
I'll often go out of my way to do a little something, be it sweet
or absurd, to make you smile. I can be very affectionate and will
be fiercely loyal to those who gain my trust.
Basically, I'm the closest you'll probably ever get to a talking
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Getting used to working at a national lab. They do things weird
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Science! Also video games, though I've had less and less time for
those in the recent years. Stupid growing up and having to be
I'll tell you what I'm not good at, spelling. That and remembering
names. Good god am I bad with names. That has lead to soooooooo
many awkward situations for me in the past, and yet my brain
refuses to get better with names. It's kind of a jerk like that
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I honestly have no idea. You'll have to tell me when we meet!

several series of Anime. Probably more, but that gives a good idea
Movies: The Avengers, all of the movies that lead up to The
Avengers, then The Avengers again. Also all the movies that came
after The Avengers. Anyone else picking up on a theme here?
Seriously though, something about them just resonates with me, I
was feeling just as much anxiety as Tony Stark was when I first saw
Iron Man 3.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Ummmm my phone I guess? I mean I'd get used to not having it but
its so damn handy. Can't think of much else, guess I'm pretty easy.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Science. More specifically what it will take for humanity to
continue to progress and not completely collapse under our
increasingly insatiable desire for sources of energy. Also space.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
That I will often, without warning, burst into song. Either a real
song or one I just make up on the spot. They are usually about what
I'm looking at, or the person I'm with.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You want to! And if you can sing, I am an absolute sucker for a
girl who can sing. Also if you like talking to a silly guy who will
put as much effort into his responses as you do in your messages.
