My self-summary
Some would say that I'm like an enigma wrapped in a puzzle wrapped in a vest. So yeah, I'm a dork, but I'm funny and friendly too :) I love creative and intelligent people like me, but I also enjoy being sarcastic and cracking jokes at the expense of myself or others. I was a creative writing major in college (I love poetry and literature), and am now (since I am Indian and thus have a genetic predisposition) in my first year of medical school (see what I mean about the whole enigma thing?). I also have a penchant for parenthetical statements and for being self-referential (and for stealing quotes from the Simpsons). If you're still reading this and are enjoying yourself, you'll probably like my sense of humor, so message me!

I am intelligent, poetic, and witty
What I’m doing with my life
I finished college in May 2009 with a BA in Creative Writing. Right now, I'm in NYC, trying to make med school look easy :) ...it's not... :/ It is fun and more interesting than the science classes I had in college, though the workload is...bleh. Happily, though, I still have time to read and write. I'm finally starting to send out some of my poems to my favorite magazines and websites (wish me luck!). I love NYC, I used to visit it as often as possible (I'm a NJ resident, but don't hold it against me). I've really been looking forward to all the city has to offer, exploring the parks, museums, restaurants and other cool, laid-back places...though that'll be much more fun if I have someone like you to come with me!
I’m really good at
Making people laugh, holding intelligent discussions about art, politics, philosophy, etc., staying up late and writing (although I can't say for sure if the writing is always intelligible...)
The first things people usually notice about me
Probably they notice my sense of humor. It can be really funny or really awkward, depending on the situation. But I don't mind awkward, it's my field of expertise :)

The six things I could never do without
Poetry, my friends, my family, wine, the ocean (it makes sense to me), the internet.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The meaning of life and what my plans are for Saturday night.
On a typical Friday night I am
At a bar with my friends, relaxing and unwinding with a drink.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am a little shy around pretty girls or girls I like. It's embarrassing for a guy to admit, I think. Also, I can wiggle my ears. It's gotten me out of a speeding ticket once, actually...
I’m looking for
  • Straight girls only
  • Ages 21–23
  • Near me
  • Who are single
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
...if you've enjoyed my sense of humor so far (you'll get a lot of it, trust me); also, if you're looking for a sweet, sensitive, honest, fun-loving guy to spend time with and get to know better. I'm always up for meeting new people, for trying new things. You don't have to be an artist, or even artistically minded...as long as you have a passion about something that we can share. I'm excited to make some new friends in NYC! We'll see what happens from there...
