Ok, a bit more about me.
As someone that is scientific by profession and education, I'd prefer to date someone who leans towards reason and logic, not mysticism and superstition, since we'll probably have more in common and a similar outlook on life. I'll say though that I have a deep respect for Buddhism. It's the only religion (if you want to call it that) I've studied that doesn't have a history of violence and the teachings are more about cultivating a healthy mindset and view on life, happiness and suffering than it is teaching about highly questionable and often laughable superstitions. Buddhism is an amazing belief system. So, if you're buddhist, maybe you can teach me more about it :)
Here's the part in my profile where I call some of you ladies out. If your username contains the words "sexy", "princess", "fabulous" or "hot", chances are high that you're the female equivalent of a douche bag. Yup, those exist. And you might be it. Don't be mad because I just called you out!!! lol Seriously, would you be flattered if a guy gave himself the username "brillantstud" on here? You'd probably think "Take it easy there, chief" and opt for a profile containing more humble elements. So, ladies.... please no more usernames on OkCupid like "sexyprincess". That's a really bad start.
Lastly, I've noticed a strong correlation between beautiful women and their tendency to say "You should contact me if you think you can handle me". When you say that it comes across as a euphemistic way of saying you're a pain in the ass and think you're too hot to put in an equal or complimentary amount of effort into dating as the man should put in. Physical beauty is a depreciating asset, and from a financial perspective I don't invest in depreciating assets. That's how you end up financially bankrupt. So it goes that committing to a relationship based on physical attraction alone, or selling yourself based primarily on being good looking, leads to romantic bankruptcy. So, I'm not looking for someone that "needs to be handled". I want a partner. Someone that is sweet and affectionate. That's so much better than managing a pain in the ass, don't ya think?
Now, if you love the outdoors and dogs, enjoy Netflix nights with good food and affection, educate yourself regularly and want to live a meaningful life full of traveling and exploring, then shoot me a message. That's a good place to start. And if we're a good match I'll do everything I can to let you know how much I appreciate you.
