Favorite movies: It's a Wonderful Life (I love Jimmy Stewart), Shaun of the Dead, Fight Club, Midnight in Paris, Gladiator, Horrible Bosses (pretty much anything with Jason Bateman is ok by me), the Back to the Future trilogy.
Favorite shows: Sherlock (my newest acquisition; I am HOOKED), The Newsroom, Downton Abbey, Lost, Mad Men, Archer, Arrested Development.
Music: Rock - including classic rock, modern rock, and guilty pleasure 80s rock; pop; some singer-songwriter stuff. The albums I keep listening to on Spotify these days are by Holy Ghost, Two Door Cinema Club, and Foster the People. My favorite band growing up was Toad the Wet Sprocket and their recent reunion and new album make me really, really happy.
Food: Italian, Indian, Mexican (though I hate corn tortillas - go figure). Cheese.
In all seriousness, I'm dubious about online dating - I think physical chemistry is crucial in figuring out if someone is a potential partner or just a friend, and I feel like the lead-up online dating creates before two people meet creates too much pressure. And that makes me feel really awkward. That said, I'm a grad student who just doesn't get out enough to meet people outside of my field, and that hasn't led to a thrilling social life. So I'm hesitantly giving this a shot. Sort of.
..you want to see a picture (happy to send, hesitant to post).
..you find me intriguing for any reason. Girls like knowing they're intriguing.
One last thing! I am positive I won't be in one place in the states for more than the next few years, if that, and I really could end up anywhere - Europe, Australia, wider North America, etc. I'd love to simply expand my number of friends from anywhere, so if you aren't near to me and are willing to be friends (first? only?), please drop me a message.
