In a relationship, I'm looking for an enjoyable person whom I share a mutual attraction too. An independent woman with empathy for differences of opinions. I'd prefer someone whose active and enjoys trying new things, especially beer/food. As for this site, I'd like make a connection with people on a meaningful level, and potentially develop that further more if mutual interest persists.
Cooking. Over the past year I taught myself to cook and routinely make fairly high quality dishes; recent meals include catfish and shrimp gumbo with a dill cous cous pilaf, savory garlic 'smoked' ribs with greens, Sonoran vegetarian BBQ pizza, vegetarian chili, buffalo chicken tacos, rotini with fennel vegetable marinara.
Archer, the daily show and some sports are all I have time to watch at this point.
As for food, I love all types of food. Some recent favorites were mentioned above, you can ask about all time favorites.
You get hazed (via exams, qualifying exams, preliminary exams etc.) until you feel stupid by people who may have got picked on when they were kids (professors) for 4-6 years. Expecting to work 60 hours is standard regardless of pay. If you tolerate their hazing and eventually figure out what it is they want you to do, then they'll let you join their special Ph.D. club.
(For the record this is meant in jest rather than bitterness. I do enjoy the work I do).
if you enjoy sports and/or thinking. No I don't personally find that pair ironic.
Think we have something in common.
