Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
My pet penguin's name is Remington Wentworth III. He is an Adelie
Remington loves traveling and fishing, dislikes grouchy people, and
has one leg that's slightly longer than the other. I had a
shirtless pic up for a while, but Remington advised me to take it
down (apparently I was embarrassing the other guys on here). He's a
pretty exceptional friend. While he doesn't often venture away from
black-and-white, he's working hard to refine his fashion
Remington loves hip-hop. Explaining how a little Adelie from the
Antarctic Peninsula came to be a hip-hop fan would be exhausting.
I'd say you could ask him yourself, but he is living back at nest
with his girlfriend. Since he's not around anymore, I figure I'd
see if I could find a stopgap replacement on OKCupid.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I just finished my PhD in marine biology. Moved to Charleston in
May to research treatments for neonatal brain damage, in human
babies, not fish... figure that one out for yourself and get back
to me. Basically, I'm smart, and am using my brain to do cool

are usually incorrect.
I am really good at profoundly changing people's first impressions
of me. Not sure I understand why yet though. I think I'm just a
complex person that doesn't fit well into the boxes we all draw
when first meeting someone, so people typecast me as a lot of

Vonnegut, many, more, rap, and everything. I love food, and going
out to new restaurants is one of my favorite hobbies, whether I am
in Charleston or traveling
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
-A commercial-grade ice box. Things would get too warm for
-A boat with a slide on the side for my little man to get into the
-Internal rhyme schemes in rap.
-Skype. Antarctica has surprisingly good connectivity.
-Saltwater + sun
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What to put in these boxes.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Cooking. Meeting friends for dinner, drinks, and bar games.
Watching a movie. Going to the gym. Traveling. Maybe even playing a
video game, going to a sports game, or doing some writing/reading.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

I think I've done a pretty good job on this one so far.

I joke around a lot on here, because, you know, it's OKCupid. But
in all seriousness, I am a kind and compassionate person, and am
much smarter than your average bear. I value happiness, love, and
family over everything else (especially career). Life is short and
needs to be fully lived and explored. I'm looking for someone that
shares these values, is monogamous, and wants to grow with someone
in a mutually positive and supportive relationship. I have a very
full and rich life, and look forward to sharing my experiences with
someone special, whether that sharing lasts a few months or
