Hi Match.com people,
I am a genuine, sincere, and loving person with a somewhat offbeat sense of humor. This is my first time using the internet for anything related to dating, and I thought I'd give it a shot! I just moved here from Virginia so I am really interested in meeting some new people in Minnesota!
In terms of personality, I do tend to slant towards the introverted side of the scale, although perhaps not overwhelmingly so. I trend much more to the cool and easy-going side of things than the intense and neurotic side of things.
Many people consider me funny in a dry and eccentric sense. I would also say that I am extremely earnest and respectful in my interactions with people and my approach to relationships in general. I do like to listen, and would consider myself to be a supportive individual. Also, I can appreciate and try to model the difference between being a true partner in a relationship (romantic or friend) and simply "being present", if you get my drift.
Professionally, I am a research scientist in the health/medical field, although my background is actually in quantitative psychology. I am currently finishing my PhD, hopefully by the end of 2013 (money and sanity permitting).
In terms of what I like to do, I am pretty simple. Anything where I can interact comfortably with good people is welcomed, although I particularly enjoy working out, comedy (Steven Wright is my favorite-see headline), exploring new places and being outside, and especially exploring new ideas with other people.
Shoot me a message if you are interested, and thank you for reading!
