I'm a highly motivated guy. I'm dedicated to being my very best and constantly improving myself. Whether mentally or physically, I love a challenge. I am a predominantly scientific person, and have a very skeptical nature. I have a tendency to think more than I feel. I've been called "rational", "driven", and "unusual" (hopefully in a good way). I'm a steady personality type who can separate emotions from decisions, allowing me to handle difficult situations pretty well. In spite of all of those things, I do have a spiritual side. A big part of my personality is my sense of humor. I am somewhat shy, and use jokes to bail me out of uncomfortable situations. My sense of humor has been referred to as "dark" or "irreverent", and is probably not for everybody but I can live with that. I love to work out, mostly with weights. Between training and learning about nutrition, I have been able to lose a significant amount of weight (~40lbs) in the past two years and this trend continues.
I'm looking for a strong, independent woman who shares those qualities with me. If you feel like an overachiever, or if you are dedicated to the point where people consider you "obsessive", or if you've ever felt different because of your intelligence, then you're probably my type. If you feel like most guys are intimidated to talk to you or that you're "out of their league", I might be your type. I like women who are not afraid to be themselves, and enjoy staying in, wearing sweats, and watching movies together. I am not interested in people who party all the time and carry around immaturity and emotional issues. I realize I sound extremely selective, or even snobbish, but that's because I am looking for the very best and brightest women, because I feel that I can meet and surpass even their standards.
