My self-summary
I'm a 26-year-old who loves to read. Apart from that, my universe currently revolves around my pets, my family, and my studies.
I'm a big believer in talking and compromise in any relationship, including friendship. If there's a problem, take me aside and we'll talk it out and see if we can fix it.
As a heads up, I'm demisexual, so physical attraction is something that does not come quickly to me. This is irritating, since I want a permanent relationship, which may frustrate interested partners. Please take this into account.
I am also a major cuddlebug.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm in graduate school for my PhD in Social Work - my BS is in Crime, Law, and Justice, and MA in Sociology. I plan to do research and teaching at an R1 university, focusing on childhood victimization. I adore school, but spend most of my time in recreational reading.

You love hokey activities (picnics, bowling, playing pool or boardgames, fun but inexpensive outdoor activities, etc.)
Don't message me if you'd want to take me to clubs/bars a lot or hang out with friends /all the time/. I'm sociable, but not that sociable.
