My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm hard to summarize, as I have a lot of contrasts. I like being ridiculous, but also having serious intellectual or emotional conversations. I enjoy meeting new people and deeply connecting with people, but I also need quality alone time. I'm busy, but I make time for people and things that are important to me. I'm working on finding the balance, or at least a sustainable cycle.

I'm an evolving person, but some points of stability are my interest in learning about people and the world, caring about people, and investing in interpersonal relationships.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Update: So, I'm off working as a medic at a Boy Scout camp again. I'll be in town for a few Saturdays this summer. Message me if you're awesome.

After graduating with a major in computer science a few years ago, I decided that the life of the desk wasn't for me, spent a year wandering around the country, then settled down for a few years of pre-med classes at PSU. I flirted with the idea of being a mid-level provider (PA/NP), but after working as the medic at a scout camp this past summer, I confirmed that I want to be a physician. I'm applying to medical schools in June, and I'll be working at camp again this summer.

I've done a lot of traveling, though that's hasn't been a focus of my life for a while. Will do more someday.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
- Connecting with people: listening to people, being present, making them feel understood and cared about.

- Being ridiculous. The world is exhilarating in its absurdity and explosive, colorful vibrancy, and at my best, I live in a balance of taking the world very seriously and laughing at its contradictions (and my own). I tend to let this side out to connect with people, then get serious to get to know them on a deeper level, then bring it back once I'm more comfortable with them.

- Reading people. If I could pick a superpower, it would be mindreading.

- I respond well in crisis, making things happen and pitching in where needed, or providing emotional support. (Though I avoid romantic relationships with people who pull me permanently into crisis/support mode.)

- Being comfortable in new social situations.

- Knowing things, be it about human physiology or medicine, current news, history, science, or any of my other fields of interest, or just random things I've picked up along the way. Not so much musical artists, unless it's on the radio or I have danced to it at some point.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I love good food, and especially trying new food. Thai food is my comfort food. I love all kinds of Asian foods and other ethnic food. I enjoy cooking, and I also like trying interesting beers.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1) Close connection with people around me.
2) Independence, space, self-sufficiency. Self-control.
3) Movement: dance, exercise, martial arts. Sometimes, travel.
4) Passion, direction, and clarity.
5) Food. I love cooking creatively, or trying new recipes, or going out to eat.
6) Flexibility balanced with assertive resilience.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
In the past two years, I've done a lot of blues dancing. A huge variety of dance music, grounded movement, and (ideally) deep connection with your dance partner, though just until the song is over. It's like a little relationship in every dance.

Sometimes I also do potlucks.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm generally pretty open, if you make like you're interested. So, ask.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 24–28
  • Near me
  • Who are single
  • For new friends, long-term dating
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
I will be particularly excited to meet you if you see yourself in any of the following:

- You're enjoy ridiculousness, intellectual conversation, and emotional connection, sometimes intermingled.

- You have some sort of medium- or long-term passion or plans, general or specific, and you're excited about it.

- You care about people. The people around you, and ideally also people in a broader sense. Apathy is not my thing.

- You keep tabs on what's going on in the world.

- You're an active person. Maybe you dance, or bike, or hike. Maybe you work out, or maybe you run or swim. Maybe you're a farmer or have some other occupation that keeps you moving or working hard. Or maybe you're just an active person in general, and do lots of different things. Bonus points if you can dance.

- You're looking for a connected, long-term, monogamous relationship, or are open to one developing.
