What do you need to know about me?
I'm intense but with a very go-with-the-flow attitude. My passion for what I do drives me daily. I'm fairly competitive with athletic activities, but more respectable (i.e. less trash talking, more nefarious deal making) with board games and the such. I'm a straight shooter and prefer honesty over tact. Too much is lost with tact in my opinion. I can be a bit cynical because of my knowledge of the world and my daily submersion in rather depressing topics, but regardless, I'm happy and hopeful for the future. I love traveling and is one of the great things about my life as an academic.
What am I looking for?
I'll admit I don't have this completely figured out. What I do know I need from a partner is someone who can engage with me intellectually, will stand up to me and call me out on my shit, has a desire for the romantic or is at least able to tolerate my corniness and the fact that I probably watch more chick flicks than they do.
