My self-summary
I want to meet someone to enjoy spending time with. I may not be thin, but I'm pretty freakin awesome :D I'm a bit of a nerd and a little socially awkward, buuut I'm a scientist, therefore it should be a bit expected... so hopefully you can roll with it. I've also always been into sports and working out (mostly weight lifting and swimming). I'm very independent as far as life stuff goes (bought my own car and house), I love my job, and I'm quite social, but I'm tired of being lonely and the only single person out with my friends. I'm looking for an adult relationship with possible future, aka, I'd love a best friend with benefits and emotions, or in other words a boyfriend, but it doesn't have to start out so committed as that usually sounds. I'm not interested in committing myself to the wrong guy. Getting too old to waste time that way. Be honest, and candid, (that doesn't mean be an ***hole) and I will do the same. I don't like hookups, and while I wouldn't quite consider myself demi-sexual, I definitely need more to be involved with someone physically.

I want someone who can play like a kid with me, likes the occasional spontaneous road trip to the ocean or a hike or even just to listen to music and look at scenery. Enjoying video games and anime isn't a requirement, but be willing to occasionally watch one of my movies, and I do like to have the occasional veg day playing final fantasy or elder scrolls for hours in my pjs, I only get those like once a month maybe. I also like watching guys play games, curled up next to them on the couch, so of course I prefer you're into them, buuuut like I said, not necessary.

I believe in constantly working to improve myself, and I prefer people who are of the same mindset. Downers need not apply. Everyone gets a little down sometimes, but I try to keep a positive attitude and keep moving forward, constantly trying to improve someones mood and outlook on life is exceptionally draining. I've done it, and I'm not looking to do it again.

420 friendly though it's rare that I use, just like being around it.
What I’m doing with my life
I have my bachelors degree in life science and chemistry and I work in a genetics research lab. I LOVE my job. I'm in grad school for a master's in biology as well.

long term career goal: I want to be a tenured professor teaching university level genetics and biology, while still dabbling in a bit of research, maybe one grad student, one undergrad. Sounds like a fantastic situation. But in the meantime, I'm trying to mess with a lot of things to figure out how to get there and what exactly I want while still keeping in mind current and short term life stuff. It's a little complicated, feel free to ask me about it : )
I’m really good at
Cooking and baking and being outrageous.
The first things people usually notice about me
With a stranger I have to interact with, I'm usually overwhelmingly bubbly, so I think the first thing people seem to notice about me is my intensity : ) but physically probably my hair. or the fact that I'm incredibly open and blunt (and frequently ridiculously dirty) usually to the point of shocking people or more often making them laugh.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
books- lots of fantasy adventure and paranormal or historical romances. My favorite series are the sword of truth, black dagger brotherhood, and the belgariad. I'd like to read the hobbit eventually, I'm currently reading the wheel of time series, and I'd like to reread some of my text books if I had more time.

Movies- action movies, vampire movies, ninja movies, good stuff like that. I cant stand awkward situational comedies (like the office is a good example) and love stories can be lame and depressing (one of the few girls you'll meet who HASNT seen the notebook or dirty dancing...) oh, and my favorite romantic movie (because I always forget it when asked but I'm ecstatic when it comes on TV) is practical magic.

shows- Bones, Castle, how i met your mother, true blood, the mentalist, Rizzoli and Isles. I'll watch csi, criminal minds, and NCIS marathons all the time though whenever they're on if there's nothing better to do. Overall not a big tv watcher though, can't sit still that long.

Music- anything with a good beat that makes me feel good. I love alternative and edm, but really I like just about everything but instrumental jazz and screamo - I think music shouldn't be depressing, rather it should make you feel good and want to get up and dance. I get a lot of strange looks for dancing/head bobbing/singing along in my car but I don't care, I love it ; )

Food- I have a love hate relationship with food for sure. I love good food, I'm a vegetable fiend, like give me a huge bowl of steamed broccoli and carrots and a little butter and garlic and i am happy, but I also love pastas and rice which hates me in return : ) My family is very into big fun family dinners and most of us love to cook and experiment, so eating with us is often a yummy adventure! Especially as we all have different eating styles- I'm on a high protein low glycemic diet and my brother and SIL eat almost completely organic vegetarian. It always makes for interesting conversation and good food.
Six things I could never do without
family. friends. feel good music. sunshine. water: drinking, showers, baths, or swimming in. and physical affection, platonic or otherwise.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
mostly daydreaming about what i'd rather be doing haha, but arent we all? also think about work quite a bit and all the normal things.
On a typical Friday night I am
Friday night is like every other night to me, so could be home sleeping or playing a video game, or at the gym, or at the bar or a movie, or at work. Depends who asks me to do what and how tired I am.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
i'm not really sure, so you'll probably have to ask me. I'm an incredibly open person to a fault i think, so any question you will probably get an answer to, at least eventually.

oh, and i'm a bit self conscious of my overuse of emoticons! but i hate the lack of inflection/emotion that words typed on a screen are left with...
You should message me if
you want to meet an awesome girl who wants to have some fun and maybe eventually fall in love if that's where it leads. Or you just want to meet someone new and experience a different perspective on life.

If you are interested, send me a hello! But please don't message me if: you have a criminal record, you have terrible credit, you haven't had a job in a while, or you're just looking for a good time short term. Otherwise, I'd love to chat and see if there's anything there.
The two of us
