What is true however is that I grew up in a country that is eerily similar to Minnesota (this is a big selling point when I try to convince my parents and brother to come visit). I laugh often and smile when I'm not suppose to. If someone point this out, it only makes it worse. I don't sound like the Swedish chef on the Muppet Show, but he is by far my favorite character.
I'm a much bigger fan of the film genre of drama than to experience it in my own life. I like to live in neighborhoods where I can walk or bike to most places (Uptown or NE anyone?). I run a small investment firm, but I'm more of a research nerd than a business person. Please don't tell anyone, I have a cool image that I protect fiercely :).
I like sports (this has been a big part of my life ever since I decided as a child that some day I will beat my older brother in every single sport), science, HBO shows, Netflix, newspapers, funny YouTube clips, tea with cream in the evenings, coffee without cream in the mornings and stimulating conversations.
I can't say that I have a ton of criteria for the girl I would like to meet, I think dating is more about "you know it when you see it" sort of thing. Having that said, a goofy sense of humor and an infectious smile would go a long way with me. Chemistry was boring in high school but seems very important now :).
Well, that's about as much as I can talk about myself in one sitting without getting a bit uncomfortable. Now I would much rather hear something about you...
