Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am a PhD candidate in theoretical physics. During working hours,
you would find me at a desk, doing research on a range of topics
such as astrophysical objects called neutron stars or theories of
our universe's dawn. I also teach and tutor. During my free time, I
like picking a film on Netflix and watching it while sipping on
brewed tea. I like going out to cafés and fine-dining at good
restaurants. I'm a very bad dancer but I love dancing nevertheless.
I work out regularly.
About my history, I have moved a lot. I spent half my life in
France and the other half in Iran before coming to Canada 6 years
ago. I have a great love for Paris, and as Hemingway said: “If you
are lucky enough to have lived in Paris as a young man, then
wherever you go for the rest of your life, it stays with you, for
Paris is a moveable feast.”
I am hoping to meet a romantic man to have a meaningful connection
with. I like maturity and intellect in men. I don't equate being
mature with being older, as age doesn't necessarily bring maturity,
but I have nothing against dating older guys either. It can all
start with hanging out as friends and getting to know each other.
At the end of the day, I guess I seek a man to hold each other's
hands and walk part of our lives' paths together. In today's busy
world, such a man isn't easy to find. But I am optimistic, and
while looking for him, I am enjoying so many other things life has
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am working towards finishing my PhD in physics. Then I will
either stay in physics as a post-doctoral fellow or have a career
switch to finance. There are other routes I am considering as well.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I am good at seeing the deeper things in life. I'm also very
social. Being deep and being social might sound paradoxical but I
don't know how I manage to be both!

Some of my favorite recent reads are: the sorrows of young Werther
by Goethe, the sense of an ending by Julian Barnes and the elegance
of the hedgehog by Muriel Barbery. The little prince of
Saint-Exupéry is one of my all-time favorite books.

Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.

I always think I need a relationship to feel complete.

A good book.
A healthy combination of moments of solitude with social moments.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The meaning of life (as you may suspect, I haven't reached a
conclusion on this one), physics, politics, my friendships, etc.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I am usually hosting an average sized get-together with about 5 or
6 good friends over. If the weather is nice, I might be sitting on
a patio enjoying a nice glass of wine or a cold pint of beer.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
It's difficult for me to admit, but sometimes I lack confidence
talking to guys I really like online which results in me being
vulnerable to rejection. I have a tendency to see them in very
positive light while seeing my own flaws.
