My friends would say I'm giving, loyal, and funny. I try to look at the brighter side of things. Positive energy is very underrated. I try not to take life too seriously, but in a doctoral program, it's sometimes hard to let that "fun" part of me come out. I'm doing my PhD in nursing at Penn right now, so that keeps me pretty busy during the week and then I have 2 per diem nursing jobs "on the side". No wonder I never go out and meet anyone. I plan on moving back to Boston summer 2013 but until then, I visit/work in Boston about twice a month. My family and friends are all back in Boston and I can't wait to be back.
About me: I have an adorable golden retriever/sheltie mix dog. I am a vegetarian but won't try to make you one. I am an oncology nurse but have worked in a bunch of hospitals and have some pretty funny stories (at least I think they're funny). I don't smoke cigarettes. I am politically liberal but will bite my tongue long enough for a Republican to finish his/her thought. I've learned how to politely agree to disagree. That said, I'm not a crazy Green Party Sea Shepherd type of girl, either. (I just have the t-shirts). I do support gay marriage. I pretend to hate puns but I think I secretly find them funny. I want to be more environmentally and socially responsible with what I buy and support, but admittedly, I have shopped at Walmart. Does being a grad student give me a pass on that one? I have a terrible sense of direction-- no, I wouldn't say that. I would say I have NO sense of direction. If I ever say turn left, you'd better turn right.
I'd like to meet a nice guy who can hang with me outside of school and enjoy the "fun" me. If I say something you disagree with, don't be afraid to say so. I'm not always right and there's at least two sides to every coin. I'm not too much of a princess to get dirty and I love to be outside, especially now that the weather's warming up.
I am trying to be open minded about a "match" for me, but I guess we all have to have certain standards or criteria, right?
I'm attracted to guys with 1) a beard -I don't know what it is, maybe I have a fantasy about lumberjacks?, 2) a good sense of humor, 3) low importance placed on clothes/material things. I'm looking for a guy with a job (bonus if your job makes the world a better place).
I just believe in saying what I mean and being honest. I don't want to waste anyone's time and hope that you feel the same way.
I guess it all comes down to chemistry, right? Two people could look really good together on paper, but then have no spark when they're together. So if you think we would get along, drop me a line!
