I'm a mentor and student pursuing a Ph.D in a lab that researches viruses. I am a scientist, but people are typically surprised that I have social skills.
If we talk personality, I am caring, compassionate and a great listener. I am mellow and calm but have a good sense of humor, have a knack for making people feel comfortable and believe in giving back. I'm handy and enjoy walking around Lowe's, thinking about the house I'll build one day.
I dig exploration and new experiences, try to absorb the culture of whatever place I am visiting and love spending time with family and friends. I am a natural teacher, am playful, good natured, and embody the solid family values I was raised with.
I'm looking for someone who smiles often, loves life and knows that neither of us is perfect. My ideal partner has a great smile and sense of humor to match, is excited about adventure and is happy whether she's dressed up or snuggled up in pajamas for a cozy night at home. Someone who is intelligent, a tad bit goofy, engaging and able to hold up her end of an interesting conversation. She likes to sing, can laugh at herself and, like me, is looking for something truly meaningful.
