Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I have lived in the Maryland/DC area for about 6 years.
Prior to that I lived and worked in a variety of different
locations in the US and overseas. (Britain and New Zealand)
Foreign travel these days is usually one big trip each
My interests are varied. For sport and exercise I visit a gym
(Pilates/Zumba) and train in martial arts. At various times in the
I have liked to hike and camp, although I haven't done much of
either lately. Other interests are photography, (just made the
switch to digital), music (mainly HR and HM), movies (wide range)
and science fiction in all its forms (written, film and TV). Recent
TV viewing has been "The Big Bang Theory", "Battlestar Galactica"
and "The 100". Reading covers documentary, autobiography and
comedy. ("Shopaholic" series is hilarious.) My restaurant tastes
are quite wide though I particularly like Mexican food.
Currently I work as a scientist at a major facility in
Previously I have worked as both a scientist and a software
roles which have taken me to different parts of the world
at different times.
I am looking for a woman with similar temperament and interests as
myself for dating and subsequently a long term relationship. The
most important trait I am looking for in a woman is that she says
what she means and means what she says. For long term compatibility
there must be the motivation to get things done, the ability to
solve problems, the skills to deal effectively with difficult
situations when they arise, the determination to see plans through
to fruition, the intelligence to make difficult decisions, the
integrity to keep to a decision once its been made, the
individuality to be your own person and the closeness to work as a
team towards shared goals.
Other traits I find attractive are the ability to hold
conversations, openness to new ideas, flexible thinking,
responsibility, self-discipline and consistency.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
For as long as I can remember I always wanted to be a scientist. It
took me a long time and a lot of effort to get there and I finally
did it. Now I am looking to develop my other interests in other
areas, including finding a partner to share them with.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Organizing, planning, logistics - particularly having to deal with
chaotic and awkward situations.
Writing software (which I do a lot of the time).
Keeping in touch with my relations scattered across the world.
