Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I graduated from a University in the UK a couple years ago and have
a lot of friends overseas. I'm planning on going visiting at some
point in the not too distant future!! I like to be outside,
gardening and walking/ light hiking. I miss living in a place where
I can walk to anything I need. My stories are fairly flamboyant and
exaggerated... and loud... but ultimately very entertaining!! I
love my family (extended and otherwise) and enjoy spending time
with them. It is their overall noise level that has made me as loud
as I am.
As far as dates go, I would much rather grab my telescope and go
star gazing, or do something creative than blow a bunch of money
going to a trendy restaurant. That said, every once in a while a
fancy meal is VERY nice... and I am on a bit of a mission to go to
every Steven Starr restaurant in Philly... I enjoy cooking, and I
make a mean roast, so if you like traditional Sunday dinner,
message me and I will make you fat with Pork crackling/
I am being completely forthcoming when I say that I believe that
romantic relationships are a team effort. Everything I have seen
and experienced supports this hypothesis. I am NOT looking for
someone who will be nice to me and take care of me (although if I'm
sick, that would be lovely) I am looking for someone who will
challenge me intellectually, argue with me (even though I'm super
stubborn) if it is warranted, support me when life's challenges get
overwhelming, be my partner in crime/ life/ eating Ben &
Jerry's in bed while watching movies, and let me do the same for
them. That said, I do not do relationship drama... just as a matter
of course. I will not stir things up for the sake of creating
drama, and I would appreciate the same courtesy. And I love to
cuddle. Just saying.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working a few jobs at the moment with an eye toward completing a
PhD proposal and getting funding to do said PhD. GOD! I miss
academia SO MUCH!!! In the mean time I am doing as much theatre as
I can be cast in, or a get any job in. If I'm in a theatre, I am a
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Shakespeare. I'm also a pretty good singer. I have also been told
that I'm quite funny... not funny looking, just funny. ;) And I
give GREAT hugs. Several people have said so, and I don't think it
is something people usually comment on... so it must be true!!
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
It might be the laugh... If I laugh really hard I snort... And If I
get nervous, my ability to filter/ edit what I'm saying decreases
dramatically. I turn into a Pandora's box of verbosity. Not so
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Book: The Book Thief, Miss Marple and the Cormoran Strike
Movie: anything old, but especially Roman Holiday
Show: Rizzoli and Isles
Music: calming, slightly folksy stuff. Lisa Hannigan, Mumford and
Sons, Nick Drake etc.
Food: FOOD!! My Vietnamese flat-mate once gave me a candied chicken
foot, and I ate it. It was actually pretty good... mind you, that
was on one of those rare occasions when I was well and truly
sloshed... but I think if offered, I would try it again sober.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My WONDERFUL friends
Complete works of Shakespeare
Complete Sherlock Holmes
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Arts and Crafts... I like to make pretty things.
I also spend a great deal of time thinking about "The Winter's
Tale" and Shakespeare's other romances... I'm writing a paper on
them... :) Here's hoping for publication in Shakespeare Quarterly!
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
asleep, or watching TV, or out with one of my friends, trying
desperately to get in trouble
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I like to sit in my bathtub with the shower and overhead heater on
and watch documentaries. The shower head is over the bathtub...
just to clarify. It is like being in a warm rain; surprisingly
pleasant, and the most un-eco-friendly thing ever. I'm trying to
curb this particular eccentricity.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
...you are an intelligent, well mannered man, if you know what
you're about and enjoyed attending lectures at University. If you
have ambitions and are motivated to achieve them, especially if
those ambitions have nothing to do with monetary gain. If you like
home made dinners. If you enjoy a good cuddle.
If you are looking for a hang out buddy, and think we would hit it
off as friends, say so. I very much like making a new friend!
