I’ve spent a tremendous amount of time in school. I had planned to be a professor, but after extensive exposure to that life I changed my mind (which is why I was able to move to New York City, rather than some random city somewhere around the globe that was short one postdoc). Instead, I work in data, which is apparently a thing these days.
I hadn’t taken a real vacation in a long time, so I went on three in the last three months of 2016. I visited Ireland, Northern Ireland, and the UK (that was one), Turks & Caicos, and Ecuador and Costa Rica. I’m pretty sure this means I’m sophisticated now.
I'm wry, perceptive, kind, and not gifted at writing about myself. I’m looking to date someone interested in a relationship and a future.

How to build a real community in this town, rather than a fragmented network of one-offs whose availability is limited to arbitrary things like part of the afternoon a week from Sunday or drinks and not food Tuesday night.
...see the world differently than people from your hometown
...can anticipate being monogamous
Also, you take care of yourself in terms of diet and fitness. Evenings of bar food and cocktails are fun, but let's earn them.
Finally, you live in Manhattan or Brooklyn or somewhere convenient.
