My self-summary
Hello? Is it me you're looking for?

What I'm looking for/my Wish List: you're intelligent, curious, confident, down-to-earth, funny, self-aware, emotionally mature, driven, considerate, kind, sane, and passionate. That's not TOO much to ask, is it? ;D
Humor is important to me. Dark humor is the best. I'm looking for a man who's the perfect shade of bottle tan... a man that smells like cocoa butter and cash. Win me over by teaching me something new, making me laugh until my stomach hurts, and challenging me intellectually.

I can be pretty nerdy at times -->(Hey you guys, we can put HTML code in this box! Pretty geeked about this.). I dabble in web and graphic design. I like most things involving science and nature. There's a special place in my heart for neuroscience. Spending the night cuddling on the couch watching Planet Earth is something that I would definitely enjoy. I'm a fan of gory zombie movies and films that make you go "da fuq?!". I dig post-apocalyptic books/movies involving infectious disease outbreaks that cannot be contained by the military or government (ohhh nooooo!). But seriously, earth is going to hell in a handbasket, so let's enjoy this ride, yeah?

Material things aren't all that important to me, so if you are someone who likes to woo the ladies with gifts of "chocolate" diamonds, or ugly-ass Pandora bracelets, I can tell you now that we would NOT be a good match. However, if you want to shower me with gifts of organic produce or pre-paid VISA cards - THAT'S COOL.

Speaking of produce, I'm a fairly healthy eater. I own a Vitamix and actually use it. I spend a decent amount of time in the kitchen trying out new recipes. I love baking/cooking and it would be great if I could find someone who felt the same way. I will bake you cookies and make you eat them until you get diabetes. So, grab a number (and an insulin shot), and get in line.

FYI - I am an atheist. So, if you're religious I will tell you now not to waste your time. I am also quite liberal; conservative Republicans need not apply! Thanks!
What I’m doing with my life
I used to do research in the neuroscience department at Michigan State University, but, the job was too stressful and much too dangerous (infected papercuts, deep papercuts, formaldehyde-induced headaches, etc.). Nowadays I am devoting my time to a non-profit organization. And school. Again. Always.

I'm fascinated by the human body and how it functions. My ideal career would involve treating people's health conditions with alternative/complementary/natural medicine. :: START rant :: Our current health care system does not promote the prevention of disease, rather, it promotes the use of pharmaceutical drugs and pushes pills on people like candy. :: END rant ::

FYI I am currently dealing with some health issues. I'm NOT dying or anything, but I am often running low on energy. I live life at a slower pace than the general population and require naps. Much like a cute kitten, except, you know... Human. So, if hanging around someone who is "sick" is awkward for you... well, please don't contact me.
I’m really good at
Gardening, baking gluten-free treats, looking at the intricate details, being straightforward, being your doctor without any formal training, getting weird (in a good way), and making important life decisions during specific phases of the lunar cycle.
The first things people usually notice about me
My smile, luscious lips, vestigial tail.

Six things I could never do without
1. chapstick
2. companionship + someone to share/make the good times with
3. a comfy bed + naps
4. books + music + intellectual food for my brain
5. the outdoors + sunlight
6. laughing + humor
I spend a lot of time thinking about Stevie Nicks is my spirit animal.

The movie, Interstellar. So... essentially, space and time travel. Wormholes. Life on other planets.

And... How weird turtle penises are.
On a typical Friday night I am
Visiting a coffee shop for some tea and conversation, reading words and "sounding it out", or fucking the pain away.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I don't own a smartphone, but I do have a Kindle that I carry around in a BabyBjorn.

It has come to my attention that my profile makes me sound more extroverted than I actually am. In real life, I am indeed an introvert. INFP/INTP depending on the day :) You should be O.K. with spending a night indoors, watching a movie or just shootin the shit with me. I don't do the club scene and don't care to go out dancing.
You should message me if
- you can handle my vulgar sense of humor,
- you know what Oryx and Crake is,
- you got some testing done through and want to spend the night talking about genetics,
- you're a fellow night owl.
- you're a good guy / girl.
I'm looking for new lady friends, too!

But seriously, I consider myself a good person. I don't play games and don't enjoy being taken advantage of or lied to. I will treat you with respect and kindness, and I expect you to treat me the same. Thank you.
The two of us
