I got my dream job right out of college, and I've been having a blast ever since. I get to use science to catch bad guys every day with my best friends. If I weren't a scientist I would want to write television (good television, of course). I'm a lover of a good story, and my favorite medium is TV, so I like to discover new shows and re-watch old ones with my friends. I have pretty good taste, I think.
I'm a well-balanced, rational person with an endless sense of humor; I will laugh at almost anything and I especially adore stand-up comedy. I'm quick-witted and confident, very friendly and moderately outgoing, but independent enough- in the true sense of the word- that I can be happy with any number of other people around, including 0 and 1. That is honestly why I've been single for most my life- I'm perfectly content that way. But I am finally starting to believe that I can be even happier with someone great, someone just right. Not perfect, but perfect for me. Which brings me to my search.
I love men who aren't afraid to be nerdy but aren't socially awkward about it (I think you know what I mean). I am definitely a geek girl myself (board games, science & tech, and planning to go to Comic-Con next year!) but I also love entertaining, sewing, crafts, and decorating my house. For the sake of clarity, I would love to find a guy to be generally geeky with. I do not want a guy to decorate my house and sew with.
I'm looking for a long-term relationship. I want someone to see the world with and someone to come home to. My ideal man is a gentleman, intelligent, outgoing, kind and light-hearted, and taller than me. He'll appreciate my independence and will be my partner, above all. And I'll swoon for a wit that can match mine ;)
Finally, I'd like to briefly call out a few clich?s I've discovered while online dating:
1) Photos of yourself in the mirror with your phone. Honestly, just find a friend to take the picture. This should also prevent you from posing shirtless.
2) Sports & outdoors vs. video games: I have a lot of guy friends, and either they're singlehandedly funding the video game industry, or every guy on here accidentally typed "I love camping" when they really meant "I love Call of Duty." Go on, admit it. It's perfectly fine.
