I was told recently that if you describe yourself modestly to a
girl, she's likely to mistake your modesty for flaws and
insecurity. So here's me tooting my own horn, which I'm normally
not one to do:
I have a very diverse set of interests. I recently received my PhD
in biomedical sciences and am currently doing a postdoc in an
Alzheimer's lab. I also consider myself a writer, though I haven't
had much time for it lately. And I even find time to socialize here
and there, which is made easier by the fact that I have some great
friends in this city. I have a great sense of humor and have a very
observant, inquisitive view of the world.
What I don't have, unfortunately, is a woman to keep me company.
That's partly my fault. It's taken me a while to get used to the
idea of really sharing my life with another person. But that idea
has grown on me significantly over the past few years.
Unfortunately, what hasn't grown on me is the idea that I should
settle in order to find that significant other.
Truth is, I'm pretty comfortable on my own, and I'm willing to hold
out as long as it takes until I find someone who's really worth
giving my entire self to. What that person will be like is anyone's
guess. But I've met imitations of her in the past, and I understand
the sense of connection you feel when you meet the right person.
And a pretty face and a good sense of humor doesn't hurt either.
What I’m doing with my life
I’m really good at
Finding the right joke for any situation.
The first things people usually notice about me
Good question. I have no idea.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Lately, mostly indie music. Although it's hard to call these bands
indie anymore when Gotye and Fun are at the top of the charts. I
love all types of movies, but I don't go to the movie theater all
that often these days. Read a lot of biographies and general
non-fiction, though I could go for a good novel at the moment.
The six things I could never do without
I'd like to think that I could do without the many technological
devices I use throughout the day, but I'm sure that's not true
anymore. Love my iPhone, love my laptop, and have been trying to
ween myself off of TV recently. And I certainly couldn't live
without my friends...at least not a couple of them.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to achieve my many goals.
On a typical Friday night I am
Out with friends usually...a bar or maybe just dinner. Lately,
mostly dinners...such is the reality of getting older.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Nothing comes to mind at the moment.
You should message me if
you think we might be a match.
