Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am an ENTP that loves hiking, mountains, overcast mornings,
excellent vegan food, and prosciutto. I am thoughtful,
contradictory, and usually hungry. I like taking care of people,
but I also have a strong personality and don't tolerate BS. I like
other analytical types and am more rational than emotional.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Since graduating from a small liberal arts college (bonus points if
you went to a SLAC too), I've been a high school science teacher, a
neuroscientist, a graduate student and a clinician. Currently, I'm
a post-doc. Despite my professional ADHD, I'm very career driven. I
really respect people who put a lot of energy into their work and
are enthusiastic about what they do. I moved to St Louis for its
excellent medical center but I hope to eventually return to
California. Right now I'm sorting out my next move.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Swimming, spider solitaire, sleeping, self-loathing. Also

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Escapes to the wilderness
Bodies of water- everything from lakes and oceans to pools and hot
tubs. I especially love hot springs.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The human body and especially the human brain. Education. I'm a
former teacher. I think it's interesting how people process
information and learn. I'm always thinking about how difficult
concepts can be made accessible. Teach me something.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Out to dinner, at a dive bar, or headed out of town.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
As a child, my biggest fear was fish especially the minnows in Lake
Michigan. Also, my parents are Republicans.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You are a St Louis transplant. You love science. You want to go to
an early morning yoga class then spend the day drinking beer,
eating fried food and watching HBO. You like farmer's markets. You
are a snooze button enthusiast. You love museums. When you go to
the beach you get into the water and swim out from shore. You would
only live in LA for the weather, ocean and mountains. You are the
black sheep in your family. You are a work in progress. You want to
go camping on a whim. You know where the nearest hot springs are.
You are nostalgic for childhood summers with fireflies.
I am not interested in men with children, with obvious grammatical
errors in their messages/profiles, or with a lower than 70% match
rating (I'm an OkC match rating believer). I'm also disinterested
in spending much time outside of the city, unless it is in nature.
Can't stand the suburbs.
