Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am fairly new to the Chicago area from Minneapolis where I got my
degree. I moved here to start a new job and hope to branch out and
meet some new people.
I grew up in northern Minnesota in a small town. I have come to
have a deep appreciation for nature. I believe that basic respect
for the world and people around us is crucial.
I love winter, but winter is a lot more enjoyable outside a city
than inside one. I enjoy going for walks (preferably with some
trees and lakes around) and biking when my knees let me.
I love to host or attend small gatherings with friends. Always with
lots of good homemade food. I like to spend my alone time playing
games, cooking, and reading.
I can be a bit introverted and I know that comes across to a lot of
people as disinterest, but I do open up once you get to know me.
Once I open up and accept a person I am incredibly loyal. I have a
pretty nerdy aspect to me, but would not say that it defines me.

I recently received my Ph.D. in Physics from the University of
Minnesota. I enjoy my job, but it can be stressful at times, and so
having time to unwind is equally important to me. Currently I am
involved in academic research, though I have yet to make up my mind
if I want to continue down this path, or transition to work in a

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I mostly read fantasy series and some Sci-fi, but I also enjoy the
occasional historical non-fiction as well. The last book I read was
"The Moon is a Harsh Mistress" by Heinlein.
My favorite shows of all time are Stargate, Top Gear (uk), Whose
Line is it Anyway, and South Park (but I cannot stand Family Guy).
I like sitcoms that have some intelligence to them. My favorite of
late is Rev on Hulu.
For music I like classical and classic rock, though I don't listen
to a lot of music.
My favorite cuisine is Indian, but I like something from just about
everywhere. I like trying and making new foods. A good restaurant
is great, but even better is to get together with friends and cook
