ABOUT HER & WHO SHE'S LOOKING FOR

Hi, I'm Amy. Thanks for visiting my profile! If I were to describe myself in a nutshell I would probably say that I'm a fun loving girl who truly values all facets of life from the intellectual to the more hands on.

Aside from the typical reasons for trying online dating, I joined this site not because I’m looking for a carbon copy of myself, just someone with similar values who's willing to share his passions and accommodate mine. Perhaps you’re him!

A LITTLE ABOUT ME:

I'm originally from Canton, NY but moved to Minneapolis to follow some lifelong academic aspirations of mine. I'm currently pursuing my PhD in English Literature, specifically early modern literature and drama with an emphasis on Shakespearean adaptation at the University of Minnesota. I'm working on my second year of six and hope to secure a position teaching at the college level after I graduate. For now I just teach one section of freshman composition per semester and am really enjoying my students here at the U.

Some of my all-time favorite activities include random walks, apple picking, singing, ice skating, bowling, mini-golf, as well as visiting fairs, aquariums, historical sites, and zoos. Basically anything that involves learning or a return to one's inner child. Aside from that I enjoy reading, listening to live music, going to the movies, exploring museums/art galleries, attending plays, cooking/baking, and spending time outdoors.

Once I'm more financially secure I hope to travel the world a bit, but for right now I'm perfectly content exploring all of the wonderful things the Midwest has to offer. I spent half a year studying abroad in London as an undergraduate, so I can't wait to get back there after further steeping myself in knowledge about British literature and history.

As for my more adventurous side, I absolutely love camping. In fact, I spent my childhood camping near the Adirondack mountains with my family where we canoed, kayaked, hiked, swam, fished, etc. Thus I don't mind the more strenuous and nature-oriented activities life often presents. Put me in front of a campfire near a lake and I'm in heaven. I'm always looking to put my former girl scout skills to use.

Finally, the performing arts hold a special place in my heart, since I grew up singing in various choirs in high school and college. I also have a lot of friends who are actors, so going to the theatre has become a significant part of my life recently. I especially love attending Shakespeare plays. In fact, I've stage managed a few amateur productions as a graduate student and also dramaturged for the American Shakespeare Center a few summers ago.

WHAT I'M LOOKING FOR:

Some things that are important to me in a potential match are a love of children and pets, an affinity for the outdoors, a positive outlook on life, and an interest in intellectual pursuits. Since I'm currently pursuing a PhD in literature it is important that my partner have at least some interest in reading and thoughtful discussion. Oh and a passion for social justice is a definite plus, since a lot of my research tends to deal with race and gender issues.

I love the arts as much as sports/the outdoors. Thus the ideal person for me is someone who would be up for a night at the opera or theatre as much as going kayaking or catching the latest hockey game. Someone who is family oriented is also a priority. I have a big family and we love our get togethers.

So if you're looking for a book worm with a big heart and inquiring mind, or just strongly believe we might hit it off, feel free to contact me. I look forward to hearing from you and potentially beginning a wonderful new adventure!
