ABOUT HIM & WHO HE'S LOOKING FOR

It seems to be a cliche to say on dating sites, but I truly am an easygoing and consistently upbeat kinda guy. Unlike a lot of people on these sites, though, I tend to resist defining myself in terms of my career, or what activities I live for. (For instance, I'm talking about the type of people who immediately introduce themselves as, say, dentists, or triathletes, or as hardcore fans of Team X, as if that's the extent of their personality.) In that sense, I'm a generalist – I savor good friendships, good health, good food and drink, great conversation, humor, fulfilling and meaningful work, etc.

Speaking of work, I'm currently a researcher in a molecular biology lab. I have a MS in biology and could see myself taking that in one of many directions. I've enjoyed teaching as a part of my degree program, and am considering a career as a college professor (I don't know that I'd be able to handle K-12).

In terms of my interests, I'm most certainly a geek (or is it nerd?). I used to be more of a computer geek and gamer, but have slowly changed "geek flavors" over the years, having become more of a science and philosophy geek. I've been really taken with (free) "lifelong learning" opportunities lately, so I feel like my interests are broadening out even more as I become a "pan-academia geek". I enjoy reading quite a bit, but tend to get sidetracked from this in an attempt to merely keep up with world events, science news, etc. And, y'know, being social claims a fair amount of my free time as well.

Modesty forbids me to declare what I feel are my best traits, and I plead the Fifth when it comes to my worst ones. Let me just say that I aspire to being thoughtful, attentive, compassionate/empathetic, affectionate, and brutally honest (while still being tactful), among other such traits. And while it doesn't seem fashionable to say it publicly these days, I'm an environmentalist, a feminist, and, though there aren't as catchy names for such things, I'm also a supporter of other disenfranchised groups, such as the mentally and physically disabled and the LGBTQA community. (It's part of that whole bleeding-heart liberal thing, I suppose.)

Okay, so since this ain't your average social networking site, I suppose now would be a good time to mention my aims in joining Match. I'm afraid I'm a bit of a hopeless romantic; as much as learning and experiencing new things is important in my life, having a significant other to share it with – and to make happy (which, in turn, brings me happiness) – has always been of greater importance. That said, I'm looking for someone kind, considerate, and open-minded, but also thoughtful and critically-minded; a woman with a sense of humor and a capacity for silliness/sarcasm; and one with integrity and honesty, who will be open with her feelings. Oh, and smarts = damn sexy! As for mutual activities, I prefer more laid-back things, like hiking/taking walks, watching movies, playing board games (the sophisticated sort, not Candy Land), and, of course, conversation over a drink. I don't know that I have an ideal partner as exactingly figured out as some people on here seem to, but I'm very much willing to chat online and/or meet up to explore possibilities!

For fun:

I'm pretty low-key when it comes to what I do for fun; I enjoy taking walks and hiking, watching movies and TV series, playing board games, reading (books, but also keeping up with the news), and, above all, good conversation over coffee or a drink.

Favorite hot spots:

I'm always open to learning about new places around Cleveland, but, so far, I've been drawn to the quieter sorts of bars and restaurants around Tremont, Ohio City, and Lakewood, as well as Coventry and Shaker Heights. Outside of OH: Chicago and WI.

Favorite things:

I tried to fit just the category headings of my interests into this section (taken from my profile on a similar site), and even those wouldn't fit! Suffice it to say that I have broad interests which tend toward the nerdier end of things.

Last read:

"Demon Haunted World", by Carl Sagan; "Bonk", by Mary Roach; "Nonsense on Stilts", by Massimo Pigliucci. For the most part, tho, I read (visually) technical literature and listen to audiobooks/podcasts to give my eyes a break.

I certainly wouldn't call this a "faith".

Also, I'd *ideally* like to date someone with views similar to mine, but I certainly wouldn't consider a somewhat religious outlook a "deal-breaker". I'm just not interested in religious fundamentalists.
