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 them. Just FYI.**
I had a much longer profile before, but in the end it all comes down to meeting in person and seeing if there's any chemistry. So, in a nutshell:
I'm authentic about life. I'm basically a fit nerd who can handle both formal settings and the accompanying norms as well as chill times where you couldn't care less about how you look (seriously love cuddling on the couch...), wants love but isn't helpless without it, and loves art, culture, and personal growth in addition to science, technology, and world affairs.
I read frequently (non-fiction and fiction), enjoy time outdoors, trying new food, and stimulating conversation. I enjoy film a good deal and being able to use a film or book as a springboard for conversation (goofy or serious) is something of a personal barometer for whether there's much inside someone or not. I'm a southern boy and I have a strong accent, and enjoy being a gentleman and the chivalry that comes with it. Finally, I'm very loving. I've tried the "cold" partner thing -- doesn't work for me.
Introverted core in an extroverted wrapper.
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.
My little platitudes:
Lose the story.
Life's too short to worry (I laugh at myself frequently :).
Enforced normalcy bores me.
Age is just a number.
- Keeping my word.
- Being comfortable with, and laughing at, myself.
- Problem solving.
- Driving fast. :/
- Positive attitude.
- Southern manners.
I own a TV for occasional movies / Netflix, but have never had cable in my life.
- Ways to make friends feel better.
Climbing Everest and designing/building my own house are on my bucket list.
