My self-summary
I'm an optimist so I like to be on here to find a non-crazy, compatible human being interested in friendship and possibly dating. I'm kind of culturally displaced in Tennessee, at least as far as dating goes. I noticed most of my best matches on here are from liberal cities like Asheville or large metropolitan areas like Atlanta. I might have better luck in Colorado or the Pacific Northwest. Still, I'm an optimistic person and am hoping to chance across someone I'm excited to be around and who feels the same way about me. My best case scenario for being on OKCupid is to find a "friend who doesn't move away" and will do fun stuff with me like hikes, shows, travel, and just generally enjoy hanging out together.
What I’m doing with my life
Just finished a Master's degree, like a master.

I work at the University of Tennessee at the Institute of Agriculture. My office is right next to the trial gardens. I feel very much at home on the Ag Campus and take my coffee breaks in the teaching garden, if that tells you anything about me.
I’m really good at
The first things people usually notice about me
That I look like Johnny Depp. Or whatever hunky stud you're in love with. I'm a Rorshach for your desires. Honestly people, Jared Leto looks like ME. Get it straight.

The six things I could never do without
1. Dental floss, toothpaste, toothbrush (scuzzy teeth interfere with my happiness)
2. the internet
3. Jeans
4. Optimism
5. Patience
6. Time
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My career, volunteer work related to wildlife, my dog, my garden, home improvement projects, scrounging up three meals a day.
On a typical Friday night I am
There's no telling what I might getting in to on a Friday night.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm a super private person & take a while to really get to know. I'm still figuring myself out :)
You should message me if
If you love dogs. I get along with "dog people" very well.

If you love the outdoors. Bonus if you have a dog and love the outdoors.

If you're clever, but not a know-it-all.

If you have a great sense of humor.

If you know your Meyer Briggs personality type, apparently I should date other INTJS, INFJs, ENFPs or ENTPs.

"E" type extroverts balance out my tendency to be introverted - but there is a natural connection with other introverts.

One request: please do not message me "hi there" or "hiiii..." or something like that.
