I moved to Pittsburgh from Boston several years ago to begin working on my Ph.D., which I just finished! I have come to like the landscape, architecture, cultural activities of Pittsburgh and the down-to-earth friendliness of Pittsburgh's population. I am fascinated by the topic of my dissertation, but I also enjoy non-academic pursuits. For example, for the past two yeas, I have been learning how to dance (salsa, east coast swing, west coast swing, blues dancing) and have traveled in a few European countries. I enjoyed learning new languages and seeing beautiful works of art, as part of my dissertation research.
Though I am divorced, I have come to understand that relationships, at their best, can be full of positive energy, kindness, patience and sensuality. I would like to meet someone that I can connect to on many levels, someone with whom I can laugh, discuss issues large and small, someone that I enjoy caring about, and someone who cares about me. I am hoping to find a long-term relationship, but I am not in a rush.
