Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I love learning about the world and having new experiences. I love
to read! I’m extroverted and highly value my friendships. I love
international travel, skiing, hiking, building models, unplanned
road trips and big ideas. I'm loving life and looking for someone
special to share it with.
On the Myers Briggs personality test I'm an E.N.F.P.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working as an environmental scientist with a local consulting
company and planning how to spend my weekends. I love living on the
One of my goals is to have new experiences. Long term I have
thought a lot about going back to school for a Ph.D or getting
another Masters in public health. In the mean time I'm saving for a
trip to China with a friend in the Fall.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Reading and other impractical things. I am a good listener and good
at picking up on people's mood. I love to cook and brew my own

Hopefully not what I am wearing as I seem to have been born with

I love reading but am very dyslexic so I almost exclusively listen
to books, and every thing else people normally read, magazines, the
news, even email when I'm in a particularly lazy mood. I like a
broad variety of books, mostly non-fiction. Some of my favorites
The Lord of the Rings, The Oxford History of the United States,
Snow Crash, Anything by Bob Woodward, anything about NASA, almost
anything about religion and politics. I am also a huge fan of the
The Teaching Company.
I don't watch a lot of movies but some of my favorites are: "The
Fog of War","Arsenic and old Lace", "The Seventh Seal", "The Great
Locomotive Chase" and the "Secret Life of Walter Mitty"
My favorite shows are the Daily show and the Simpsons. My TV hasn't
been hooked up to the outside world in about 5 years though.
I love Classical music particularly music by Mahler and Sibelius. I
also like David Maslanka and Steve Reich
At home I mostly cook vegetarian. I love Indian, Thai and Middle
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
6 things? how about: Oxygen, H2O, carbohydrates, the strong nuclear
force, amino acids, and LOVE.
A better question would be six things you really really really
don't want to give up. In no particular order here they are:
My library card
Random trips to interesting parts of the world
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The funny things people are willing to admit about themselves on
I'm very interested in current affairs and broad trends within
culture. I'm also fascinated by religion and physics. I read a lot.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Hanging out with friends at my place cooking dinner or out at a
bar. I also camp on weekends a lot.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have been single most of my life and don't need someone else to
be happy. I would really like to meet someone special though!
I enjoy knitting sometimes.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You have your life more or less together and are an interesting
