My self-summary
I'm a Research Tech at University of Chicago. I'm from MI (the Detroit area). I've been in IL since 04/14. I'm pretty busy and focused on my priorities. Work and yoga take up about 70% of my time. You can have the rest though. ; )

So, I didn't message you randomly. I messaged you because I think you sound interesting and intelligent. I also think you're attractive. All these things matter to me equally. Someone into fitness or yoga would be a welcome aspect.

I'm looking for a great girl to get to know, someone intelligent and nice. Different is good to me. So, let's be honest with ourselves here. If you're going for the guy that looks the right way and says the right thing on a dating profile you're never going to get me and there's no need to further explain much to you. It's called gaming the system. It's how people interview and it's 110% bs (sorry HR geniuses). I'm not going to further judge these people because there's also no point in that. I listen/pay attention and figure out things. It takes a minute (approximately 3 nights), but I am excellent at getting people.

I don't have the nature of 99.9% of guys out there and do things very differently. You'll have to get to know me. There's no way to describe myself. I will end up just sounding stuck up and I'm not.

How about this?

Like ongoing conversation that can go all night and transcends 2D banter? Me too.

Like enjoying the everyday things like fresh air, music, movies, people watching, food, yoga, hot sex, etc? Me too.

Like occasionally going places to do something exciting like dancing or karaoke or a road trip? Me too and bonus points if you rock at dancing, because I do.

Do you want to find someone Interested in going through ups and downs on their way to a highly effective, meaningful, and rewarding relationship? Me too.

You can take it or leave it. I messaged you (with a message not gushing with interview-y observations) because I see something in you that I am interested in. I don't have amazing professional, vacation-y pics, so sorry if you're all about that.

I observe and analyze until I understand my environment (you) = basic Virgo trait. Thanks for doing me the honor of reading what I wrote.

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I need a lot of music in my life. That would be a great conversarion topic.

It depends on the artist, but mostly rock alternative, electronic sounding stuff, folk-type stuff.

I like watching movies.

I like a lot of classic movies and a lot of contemporary ones. I'm not really that picky about checking something out at least.

I like documentaries, stuff about nature and science, stuff about history. I watch a lot of sports too.

I like to eat. I like to try new stuff. Really everything, Italian (I make amazing spaghetti), French, Chinese, sushi, Middle Eastern, Indian. Healthy, but not. I'm not worried about calories.

I mostly read research articles and textbooks for technical info. I also like stuff about religion and philosophy.

I have lists on Facebook if you'd like to see.
The six things I could never do without
My car
Flip flops
Hand sanitizer
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I think about stuff I see. I think about what should I be thinking about, if that makes sense. What I need to do for my next few experiments.
On a typical Friday night I am
I do yoga then...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm pretty sensitive.
You should message me if
- I contact you.

- If you have dated guys who seemed so great at first, but ended up not being what they seemed. I'm kind of the opposite of that.

- You need some new people that you can have fun with without feeling like crap the next day everytime.

- If you like to have fun, but are responsible too. I want to build something awesome with someone that can manage their life fairly well.

- If you want to make a contribution to the world in a positive way.
