Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
My name is Karl. I was Born in Panama City, Panama into a military
family. Moved around a lot as a kid to places like Australia,
Germany, and Japan.
Got a Bachelor's in Chemistry after deciding I loved it in High
School and have since been working at a PhD in Biochemistry at
I'm skinny (as is obvious from the pictures) but I do work out 3
times a week, help teach a martial arts class at UWM, and regularly
play hacky sack with a buddy from the chemistry department (classic
college student activity). So I'm not a total couch potato even if
I'm not rock climbing every other day and windsailing the other
days like apparently everyone else on the internet. Swear just
reading some of your profiles tires me out a bit.
Recently remembered that I'm 27 and should probably put myself out
there romantically again more so than just random happenstance.
Never been good at making my attraction to a girl known because I
don't want to bother someone that isn't even single. Something I
should work on I suppose. All that is why I'm on okcupid looking to
put a bit of effort into trying to find someone instead of just
hoping it happens.
Edit: Found someone through OKcupid and making a go at a
relationship. Keeping the profile because it took me quite a bit of
work and because I don't mind meeting new people anyway.

I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I must admit the very first thing people probably notice is that I
look much younger than I am and so they'll probably misjudge my age
on first glance. After that it'd probably be my love of humor, I've
said quite a few things that were poor decisions in retrospect but
were funny at the time.
