Professional baby seal clubber. Just kidding! ;)
I have been an analytical chemist for years, and am now jumping into Data Science (yay Python, math, and charts).
**If you "like" me, just shoot a quick message. I can't see who you are otherwise. It is likely the only way I'll ever know! I won't bite. (Too hard.) :p**
In a nutshell:
I'm basically an athletic/fit nerd who can handle both formal/proper settings and the accompanying attire as well as chill times where you couldn't care less about how you look, wants love but isn't helpless without it, and loves art, culture, and personal growth in addition to science, technology, and world affairs. Introverted core in an extroverted wrapper.
I am authentic! I love books (own more than my schedule allows me to read, currently!), tech, science, hiking, travel, social drinks, football, guitar, standup comedy, dogs, and trying new things in general. Also a gym rat who has a (generally) healthy diet.
Southern boy with witty/goofy/naughty humor. I am very affectionate and loving, and communicate well through physical touch. That's just how my body works. Like most, I consider physical chemistry to be vital for my concept of a fulfilling relationship. While attraction matters, but connection runs deeper. And that's what I'd like to build.
I don't "fight" or yell. I can discuss anything with composure, and do well discussing tough subjects in a relationship. Listen first, talk second.
I like to be around people who I have fun with and can make me laugh -- pretty crazy, I know. I am well-traveled. Also an annual attendee of the Renaissance Festival.
Lose the story.
Life's too short to worry (I laugh at myself :).
Enforced normalcy bores me.
Political correctness can offend me.
Age is just a number.
Keeping this brief intentionally because it all comes down to connecting in person, I've found. Basically, you have to find each other somewhat attractive and then just meet and see if there's any chemistry. It's really that simple. Doesn't matter how great of a match someone is on paper.
