I'm originally from Illinois, so yes I'm a Bears / Cubs fan, which has proven to be a bit of a challenge up here :) I went to undergrad at Notre Dame, so I'm a bit of an Irish football fanatic as well. (I really like going to all sorts of games - be it UW Hockey, Madison Mallards games, Brewers games, etc.) After undergrad I spent a year in Germany teaching English, and since then I've been in Madison working towards my PhD at UW. ...I've loved living here and exploring all that Madison has to offer, and always enjoy finding some new spots!
I'm giving the online-dating world a try...hoping to meet some new people and find someone that I can build a more serious relationship with. Not looking to rush into anything too quickly...but I'm certainly not looking for any flings.
I'm looking for a guy who:
-is close to their family
-isn't addicted to texting (once again - my independent streak doesn't like it when I get a message saying "Did I say something wrong?!" when I didn't respond to a message after 20 minutes. Cool your jets! I have a life!)
Guilty pleasures: the new Star Trek movies, singing along to the Darkness in the car (yes, you know them - remember 'I believe in a thing called love'? yep.), taking the long route home because I LOVE driving, vodka martini and a steak (when I'm feeling fancy), anything involving the Muppets
