Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm well educated (I have a Masters in Ed and a Ph.D. in Biology)
and I'm a biology education researcher. I work hard at my job and
put a lot of effort into my career (which I love), but my job isn't
my life. I like cooking, playing guitar, watching/playing sports,
drinking cold beers and scotch, hiking and cross country
backpacking, and playing computer games (max a couple of hours a
week). I’ve got two cats (if you don't like cats or animals, stop
here) and really want a dog, but I am waiting until I have a proper
yard before I get one.
I take care of the people I love -- I am protective but not
jealous, fiercely loyal, and a romantic at heart despite a
sarcastic wit. I know that makes me sound like a very serious
person, and I can be serious when I want to be, but I can also be
fun, spontaneous, and lighthearted. I really enjoy (amongst many
things) spur of the moment trips to random places or going out to
dinner or happy hour with friends. My interests are pretty eclectic
and I’m down for almost anything.
I'm looking to meet a woman I can date. I'm looking for a
sweetheart who is well educated and career driven and loves that
about herself. I want someone who loves a glass of red wine or beer
with dinner, enjoys cooking, and will appreciate my cooking skills
too. I am also looking for someone who takes care of themselves
physically. I know that might sound superficial, but I do believe
physical attraction is an important component to a relationship
(I’m certainly not perfect and I don’t expect anyone else to
I don't like to put a lot of pressure on first dates (the
get-to-know-you phase should be light and spontaneous) but I would
hope that you are at a point in your life where you're looking for
something meaningful. Bonus points if you like animals, will suffer
through a serenade as I continue to learn songs on my guitar, and
have a tolerance for my affinity to football.
Thanks for visiting and good luck to you. Please don't be shy about
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
In a nutshell, I research how to improve undergraduate education
and I also look at how undergraduate and graduate students
understandings about science change.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Taking on new challenges, being adventurous, playing the guitar,
cooking, my job (duh!).
