I've had the pleasure of spending the last decade living and studying in places as diverse as Washington, DC (Georgetown c/o 2006), Germany, Maryland, and now Portland, where I've lived since the summer of 2007.
As a result of not being much interested in the bar/club/party scene, I have limited opportunities to expand my social circle, hence, my need to resort to the world of online dating.
In many respects, I'm the epitome of a paradox. I'm a future lawyer who does not like to argue. I'm outgoing, yet can be very shy until I get the sense that it is alright to reveal the more captivating aspects of my personality. I'm often the "life of the party," but I don't enjoy the party scene.
using humor to ease tension, in particular....You'll have to get to know me to know the rest.
