My self-summary
Hello! My name's Ben, and I'm a Ph.D. student and research assistant at TAMUCC. My ultimate career goal is to become a college professor in meteorology. I really can't wait to be able to help students learn and shape their education. I'm pretty good at teaching now since I've done it for two years as a masters student, and it's definitely fulfilling. I have so much respect for all teachers out there after experiencing it myself.

I would like to try new and fun things and do some traveling eventually since there are so many interesting things in the world, so it's important that I find someone that is open-minded. I'd really like to see some of the historic areas around the world as I get some more money...but in the meantime, road trips across the US would still be fun! One of my goals is to visit every National Park in the US. I'd also love to go to the World Cup someday...how awesome would that be?

It would be great to have someone to explore the area and the state with since I'm relatively new here, but also doesn't mind just spending the night in and cooking dinner together/watching a movie. It's also important to me that I find someone that is smart and values education as much as I do. Oh, and bonus points if you're a sports fan (I'm originally from Pittsburgh, so if you're a Steelers/Pens/Pirates fan, we would get along great).

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Finishing my research and getting my doctorate.
On a typical Friday night I am
Hanging out with my friends or doing some kind of work or watching Netflix...really depends on how busy I am.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
You'll have to ask me this yourself. Ask me anything, I promise I'll answer!
You should message me if
If you're a ton of fun to hang out with, easy-going, and drama-free.
If you like soccer.
If you wanna go get a blizzard at Dairy Queen.
If you actually want to meet and not just be text buddies forever.

And most importantly, if you actually can hold a conversation and genuinely enjoy getting to know someone. There's waaayyyyy too many boring people on here that have no idea how to really talk to someone beyond saying one or two words at a time. How can you expect to find someone you like if you're not willing to put in any effort?
