Feb 14 is my last day on here (ironically), so if you've been meaning to email me, now is the time!
OK, back to the profile...I'm generally happy, care a lot about what I work on (public health in poor countries) and spend a lot of time and energy on friends and family (a population that seems to be increasing rapidly as everyone I know is popping out babies).
I like to cultivate a couple of tomato plants on the porch in the summer and to make soup in the winter. My new place has a back patio/yard so next summer will be great fun. I watch too much TV (mostly funny, often online) (Stewart, Colbert, The Office, 30 Rock, Modern Family, SNL -- that kind of thing) and I read too much (mostly fiction, in the post-grad school era).
Yoga and wandering around are my favorite forms of exercise. I like autumn and spring the best, followed in no particular order by summer and winter.
Things I'm good at: Roasting squash; listening and asking questions; spending an entire day doing very little; talking to grandmothers; spotting wildlife in the Arboretum; Scrabble (online and regular); giving gifts at random times; understanding complex problems (coming up with solutions is harder); running 10 minutes late or 10 minutes early.
So what am I looking for here on Match.com? As far as I can figure out, I'm hoping to meet an interesting, smart, social-justice-oriented guy in my general age range who thinks it's endearing that my hair is always messy and I never wear makeup.
I'm not looking to get married in the next few months. But I am hoping that at some point in the next few years I'll fall in love with someone who simultaneously falls in love with me and we figure out a good way to be a family...
Also, just FYI, sometimes it can take me a few days (or months) to work up the gumption to write to you. But I'm pretty good about writing back if you reach out first.
