OK, I am a mathematician but I'm not a geek by any means. I enjoy math but enjoy life too. Here is some info about me....
My name is Peter, I'm 27 years old, originally from Connecticut. I went to college and graduate school at Fairfield University, and my first jobs in education were in New York City. I currently live in Erie teaching at the college level. I LOVE my career! Nothing gives me greater pleasure than teaching students about mathematics. I can't see myself doing anything else in life and I owe my career path to my high school physics teacher.
I need someone who can carry on an intelligent conversation with me. Whether or not I can respect your intelligence is entirely more important to me than whether you can name the cast of Jersey Shore. You also must know how to handle conflict without name calling and disrespect.
I certainly don't have it in me to use someone for their money, but I want to find someone who is financially secure and responsible. I have zero credit card debt and know how to use a budget to monitor my spending. I need someone in the same mind set. I would like someone who is frugal and saves for the future, but who doesn't mind to spend money freely to have a good time occasionally.
I like to cuddle and watch a movie/read a book just as much as a like to go out and try new things sometimes so if you like to spend several nights per week at the club then we won't have much in common. In fact, clubs in general are not my thing. I usually prefer a quieter bar with good beer if I'm going out.
I want someone with good personal hygiene who takes care of her body. Smoking is a no go for me and drinking can't be an every night thing. I would like someone who is interested/involved in physical fitness on some level and has a positive self-esteem, however, if you work out every single day and are looking for the same, that's not me. I like paying golf and guitar. It would be cool if you did too, but if not, that's okay.
I am looking for someone who likes cats since I had one and will probably have again. My cat passed away from old age this past October. He was 17.
I want someone who is potentially ready to settle down within the next couple of years. I am at the age where I am ready (but not desperate) to get married once I find the right person.
I do not expect a woman to guess about what makes me happy. I am verbal about what I want and my opinion. Life is easier that way.
I need someone who is comfortable in her own skin, has spent some time getting to know herself, and has a pretty clear vision for the future.
If you have never been in a serious relationship before, please do not contact me. You will not be able to appreciate our relationship fully until you have a basis for comparison. I learned this the hard way.
I am an extremely generous person and am always looking for ways to help people and make them feel special. I guess I this comes with my career as being a teacher!
I am trustworthy, loyal (almost to a fault), and respectful. I expect the same in a partner.
I live my life according to a plan for the most part so if you are extremely free spirited, this may not work out. At the same time, I think a little spontaneity is required in order to make life fun.
I am looking for someone who appreciates me for me, both strengths and weaknesses, but who will not be afraid to challenge me and help me grow and improve. I can promise if I fall in love with you, I'll love you for who you are yet challenge you in return.
I tend to want to spend a good deal of time together. No, not every waking hour. No, that does not mean you cannot hang out with your friends or family. I just feel like if you really love someone and enjoy spending time together that even running errands together can be nice sometimes.
I think I'm a pretty funny and quick witted person. I tend to make people laugh when in a group.
