Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
A friend recently shared some grandmotherly wisdom with me: what we
all need is "Someone to love, something to do, and something to
look forward to."
I guess I am looking for that someone to love :-)
I have a pretty strong personality, but I am also really accepting
of others' strong personalities. The people who love me tend to
appreciate my quirks. I love what I do professionally, I love the
community of great family and friends I've acquired on my travels
through this life, and I'm proud of the person I am. If there's
something I wish I could do, I usually turn that wish into a goal.
For instance, this section used to say, "In a past life I may have
been a singer," and since writing that, I decided to instead be a
singer in this life; I formed a band, wrote my first song, and
started playing gigs. I am not afraid of not being the best at the
things I do. I am only afraid of not being the best me in this life
that may be the only one I get.
Lately I have been learning how to have real, meaningful platonic
friendships with men, and it has been amazing. Maybe I learned it
later than some, but better late than never. In some ways I relate
to men more than women.
Right now I work really hard, I play pretty hard, and I'm ready to
meet the right person to share this all with.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a resident physician in Philly, a former social worker, and
still a social worker at heart. I see medicine as another tool I
now have to try to help people make their lives better and make the
I don't often have time to cook, so if you like cooking, that's a
huge bonus :-)
Traveling has been a huge part of my life in the past, is a smaller
part during these three years in medicine residency, and will be a
larger part again someday soon. I am very attracted to other
travelers, but not to long-distance relationships. Somehow this
will work out someday ;-) I also strive to apply the same
adventure-seeking approach to life rooted in one spot, and have met
other people with a knack for that, too! Maybe you're one of them.
Treating a patient with an illness I've never seen, learning a new
instrument, and dating in Philly, are the new Navigating the Buenos
Aires Bus System and Hiking Colca Canyon.
I’m really good at
