Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I moved here from Iowa seven years ago and feel like I've blended
the East Coast and the Midwest rather nicely. I work at biotech
company in Cambridge. Sometimes I think that I spend too much time
on work but I've recruited some of my close friends to work there
and really like/believe in what I'm doing so that most days it
really doesn't feel like work. That's not to suggest that I can't
put my work away and enjoy myself, far from it.
Even though I think it's become a cliche to say this on dating
sites, I enjoy rock climbing. I started bouldering about 18 months
ago and really like it.
I can be a quiet person at times and much prefers smaller intimate
settings, like a dinner party, to a loud club…unless I’m going to
see a concert. I value the idea of having a personal set of
standards or code and standing by them, even when doing so might be
inconvenient. I’m very loyal, especially to friends and family. I
consider myself to be emotionally steady and think that very little
gets me upset or angry.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I try to appreciate the smaller things in life like enjoying: a
good book, a hot cup of coffee first thing in the morning, day to
day successes at work, learning something new, a good conversation
with a friend, or an afternoon wondering around the city people
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My perfectly shaped and aerodynamically sound head.
This is my way of saying I'm bald.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I don't really think that similar interests in these types of
things necessarily lead to a better connection but they are a
starting point for conversation so....
I don't get to read as much as I use to but some of my favorite
W. Somerset Maughn, Chuck Palahniuk, Hunter S. Thompson, Irvine
Welsh, Nick Hornsby, Dave Eggers, and Chuck Klosterman.
I don't really go to the movies so much any more but I'll watch any
movie by Woody Allen or Wes Anderson.
I listen to a lot of different music but ever since first listening
to Johnny Cash's American Recordings I've been addicted to Alt.
Country bands like Avett Brothers, The Sadies, The Jayhawks, Ryan
Adams, Bright Eyes, Old 97's, Grant Lee Buffalo, and Uncle
I like a wide range of food and will try just about anything. After
growing up in the land of endless franchise restaurants (the
Midwest) I avoid them if I can.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
In no particular order and excluding things like family and
Coffee, black (it's not even for the caffeine I just like the taste
of good coffee)
A Car (I hardly ever use mine but when I want to go
somewhere/anywhere I can and do)
The Gym (I injured my leg last year and couldn't work out for
weeks, it really threw me off)
Spotify (the vast majority of all the music I've ever wanted to
listen to available at a moments notice)
A nice pair of blue jeans (most of my waking hours are in them so
I've learned to spend money on them)
Iowa football (it allows me to keep in touch with people I would've
probably lost touch with)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Life, the Universe, Everything
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Who really has a typical Friday.
Sometimes I have plans, other times things come up, and then there
are times I tell people I have plans only to spend the night
watching netflix. What I am really trying to say is that I am up
for most things.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I enjoyed watching the Gilmore Girls when it was on
