Life is amazing, I am daily reminded. I love simple and unexpected joys and am looking for an adventurous someone with whom to seek and enjoy them. I find joy in playground swings and climbing on things, snowball fights and starry nights, dancing without a care and taking a dare, a great band and a helping hand, learning something worthwhile and snuggling by a fire. And apparently in channeling Dr. Seuss...
I was born in Arkansas, studied psychology and molecular biology in Louisiana, and retain to this day an unmistakable Southern accent. I moved to Boston by way of Indiana, where I taught college students and 3-year olds and was a research administrator. I'd like to start a consulting company someday or a bed and breakfast. I have 5 amazing nieces and nephews and a little grand-nephew who is named after a chainsaw. I love dogs, Boston, and my work. [I'm also a closet nerd (okay, okay, the nerdliness is rampant but containable), so let's toss in there all things science, Firefly, sci-fi thrillers, logic puzzles, and British comedies. But shh, don't tell anyone...]
I admire people who live life with open arms, who embrace new experiences, and who can find that satisfying balance of intensity and playfulness. I appreciate traditional values and think that chivalry is sexy. "Because it's the right thing to do" and "why not?" are perfectly good reasons for just about anything.
The man I hope to meet would be an old soul in a playful heart, wrapped in an adventure, and topped with a pun (or an xkcd comic).
