I am a Research Scientist and love my work because you never stop learning new cutting edge methodologies and apply them in this ever changing field. I am not married to my work, I still find time to volunteer at my daughter's school, and do other fun stuff with my daughter like rollerskating, swimming, bike ridding, etc. and practicing for Friday's spelling quizzes - lol.
What I'm Looking For:
I smile when I think of you. We enjoy doing stuff together, and have a highly developed sense of sarcasm. I think it's cute when you snort as you laugh and all the other quirky stuff you do. You make fun of me whenever you can, I'll provide ample opportunities. You act younger than you look because I like grownup women who haven't forgotten what it's like to be a girl.
What I've Learned from Past Relationships:
Flossing is important. Laughing is essential. Imperfection is perfect. Better to be single than to be in a bad relationship. If it's worth it, I'll work for it; if it's not, I won't. Don't say anything you'll regret because you can't take it back. It's better to understand than to be understood. Unconditional positive regard instead of unconditional love. Having kids makes you a better person. The Celtics will tear your heart out, but it's fun to have something outside yourself to root for together. Strawberries can actually be an aphrodisiac if served at the right time of night. This being-single thing isn't going to be nearly as bad as I thought it might be... Finally, you must be emotionally available to the other person, which makes you vulnerable, but it's a risk you have to take to find true love.
My Perception of an Ideal Relationship:
After a 10+ year relationship, I may be rusty about this courting stuff, but I'm not jaded by divorce. It's even clearer to me that there's not just one person out there. And even if you get lucky and meet a winner, there's probably a lot of work and effort ahead, no matter what. I'm not looking to jump into anything, but I'm a firm believer in chemistry and wouldn't turn my back on someone incredible just because of minor bumps and differences that can be worked out. I feel that a perfect relationship is one in which the reality is nearby your fantasy. As long as you have a realistic fantasy, it might just happen.
If you made it this far then I kept you interested :), yeah me give me a high five :)
