Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I have a girlfriend who is awesome. Unfortunately, she currently
lives in San Francisco.
With that out of the way, I've somewhat recently moved to
Philadelphia from Austin, and I'd love to find some friends. (That
sounds so sad when you read it aloud...)
I'm hoping to find someone, or groups of people, who like to grab
the after work pint or 6 at cheap / fun places, ride bikes around
the area, play some video games, Netflix until your eyes bleed, or
explore weird venues with unknown bands.
I also love people who are willing to make puns in the most
inappropriate of situations.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm currently a Postdoc at Temple in the chemistry department (save
your Breaking Bad comments, please). In lab I'm trying to use
electrochemiluminescence of gold nanoparticles as a tool to
investigate the fundamental aspects of the plasmonic enhancement of
light. In parallel I'm working on advancing electrochemical
understanding at the nanoscale by adapting optical readout to
scanning electrochemical microscopes. I say this, because I spend a
lot of time on it. And now you understand the okcupid
When not in lab I... hmm... what year is it?
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Pissing off cops - I'm not sure why. But they all seem to hate me.
If you'd like to meet someone who has gotten a citation for
star-gazing, message me.
Drunk bike riding - I've only crashed once, which cost me a
concussion, 6 stitches in my face, and my most favorite bike
frame...but other than that, I have a near perfect record of making
it home alive.
Downhill skiing - Raced from 7th grade through the end of college.
Then spent the last 7 years living in Iowa and Texas, cause I'm
smart like that... but I still take trips out west every
Making things overtly sexual - Seriously, I can't stop. But I do it
Reading - Near the 8th grade level.
Sharing drunk food with random strangers.
Finding the clitoris - I'm not bragging, it's just happened more

He's biding his time. Why is he biding his time?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Book genres; Non-fiction, historical fiction, science fiction,
Movies; Requiem for a Dream, and other movies that lack the mass
demanded happy ending. Star Wars being the exception.
Shows; The Daily Show, The Colbert Report (sad day), Archer, Top
Gear (BBC [sad day]), Legit (sad day)... things I can watch for
free online. (And yes, Battlestar Galactica and Firefly...)
Music; I listen to bands you've never heard of. (Said as
pretentiously as possible)
Food; Free is best.
*** If you love to cook or explore restaurants, please don't
be offended. I can recognize and respect good food, but typically
all I'm looking for is the hurt in my stomach to stop.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
The fundamental constants of the Universe.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
"stands at the sea, wondering: I a universe of atoms
an atom in the universe."
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Staring at the infinity that which resides in my beer...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I own a duvet for my bed.
