Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I moved to Gainesville in August of 2012 for work (I work at UF).
Prior to moving to Gainesville, I lived in South Carolina for four
years where I was a professor at Clemson University. I am
originally from upstate New York.
While I have made several friends through my job and have a solid
social network, I haven't met that someone special yet. I am
looking for someone who is my equal and a partnership that brings
out the best in me.
I often describe myself as an introverted extrovert – I’m very
social and enjoy spending time with friends, but I am also very
introspective and need time by myself to recharge.
Work keeps me pretty busy, but I try to make time for fun. My motto
that I live by is “work hard, play hard.” I enjoy a variety of
activities (music, running, dancing, cooking) and have a diverse
set of interests.
I'm a bit of a wild child and generally do not like to conform to
the rules. As a result, I've had a pretty fun life so far. I'm not
looking to settle down; I'm looking for someone who can keep up.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am professor at UF. I really enjoy my job but it can be stressful
at times. Teaching is very rewarding and I enjoy the academic
freedom to conduct research in areas that interest me. Recently, I
have been conducting research pertaining to food assistance
programs and obesity.
I’m really good at

Phish is my favorite band. Although I haven’t counted recently, I
have probably seen them about 100 times. But I enjoy all types of
music (Adele, Billy Joel, Beatles, Talking Heads, Carrie Underwood,
Allman Brothers, Jay Z, Maroon 5). I see live music regularly and
it is an important part of my life -- an outlet that allows me to
recharge. My ideal partner would have the same passion for
Although I ran in high school, I recently got back into it. I have
approximately 10 half marathons and a full marathon in Nov. I
accomplished my goal by finishing in 3 hours 52 minutes. Since then
I have decreased the amount I run, but I still do it regularly. I
am considering picking up a new sport like biking or returning to
I love all kinds of food, expect for Chinese food (which is funny
since I did my dissertation research in China). I enjoy cooking
mostly because I enjoy the reward of eating really good food.
I read Rolling Stone and Bloomberg regularly. I rarely read books
that are not work related, but that is by choice.
I watch the Daily Show and Colbert Report religiously! Other TV
shows that I enjoy include Breaking Bad, The Big Bang Theory,
Gray’s Anatomy, Two and a Half Men, How I Meet Your Mother, South
Park, and It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia.
