Ok, so I'm a student (go figure) at the CSU, the major is technically biology but I'm heading off to the magical land that is grad school next year to get my Master's in molecular biology (Thinking of moving down south to San Diego/L.A. area for that for those of you who live down there! But Boston, Ma is high on the list for Brandeis University). I'm at a Lab right now where they have me working on Fish genetics, but I'm happy I'll get to be doing what I actually want in the near future, which is working with human DNA, more specifically genetic dispositions for cancer thankyouverymuch (I promise I'm not this boring in person!). I also play the cello in the college orchestra...
wow, if this doesn't scream 'GEEEEK' I don't know what will.... Oh, and I love dogs (I prefer the big dogs that you can wrestle with! The little ones are cute but some of them have this "Big dog" complex that I can't stand) so having one in a photo will win you points :3.
I'm also one of those jerkfaces who takes pictures of their food in restaurants and then blogs about how good it was.... I. LOVE. FOOD!!! I'm kind of an amateur food critic, but OMG! FOOD! I also bake... a lot- which is probably why I'm pretty active. I would hate to get so big that I can't squeeze my tush into a restaurant chair and shamelessly scour that beautiful menu :D
There is one big thing- please please please, for the love of tacos, be athletic. It's not that I'm shallow, it's that I'm very active and if you're not then you do not know the frustration it causes when you're with someone who can't keep up with you. I run, rock climb, race, SCUBA dive, archery, kayak, kick box, I run out and play beach volleyball or soccer with friends at the drop of the hat, I'm at the gym at least 4 times a week if not every day: I NEED someone who can physically keep up with me. You have been warned.
Anyway, I've been single for about 5 years and it's starting to not be fun anymore so I'm looking to start dating again. But I'm nice, fun loving, and completely obsessed with strawberries, so message me! \m/^_^\m/ (Unless you're a whack job, then message me 1000 times and watch me ignore you! YAAAYYY!!)
Something original!! Common guys! I'll most likely not respond to anything less than 5 words!! I get about 5-15 messages every time I log in, if your e mail consists of nothing more than "Hello beautiful" or "How's your day going?" Then I'm not going to bother responding, first impressions are a big one here, guys, same with photos, you've got to have something without a hat and glasses. I'm a bit of a -phobe when it comes to answering someone when I don't know what they look like... and never underestimate the sexiness of proper grammar and spelling. I’m not a grammar Nazi and if you send me something with misspellings in it I likely won’t care… but when I get something that needs a decoder ring, or a hood rat, to translate then I’d rather not answer than put my IQ at risk in case whatever you have is contagious. Try to sound like you graduated high school. Kay? Thx.
I'm up for anything, I've done most of them; from theater (the play, not the movie, though both are fun) and dancing to a monster truck rally and hotdog eating contest, sadly I did not win. If you're a diver that would be all sorts of awesome and I would gladly go diving as a first date, rock climbing, food, first-date-coffee-grab, hiking, UFC fights(I used to live in San Luis Obispo and worked for US Air, Chuck Liddell came through us a LOT, he's a super sweet guy ^_^ )... or the nice-n-cheesy walk on the beach if that's more your style. Hockey is my sport of choice(yay Kings! :D ), unless roller derby is an option (Santa Cruz Bombshells!!! AROO!). I'm not the biggest beer drinker but I won't turn it down (especially if it comes with food!) and wine tasting is always fun!! Arrogant B*stard is my favorite beer although I would always prefer a whiskey sour over any other alcohol. I think the only thing I wouldn't be OK with is a concert- Sadly, I seem to have very different tastes in music then other people (I don't really enjoy rap, like many other worthwhile women out there -Hah! Shameless plug!). However, if you give me a soccer ball, prepare to cry your lovely little eyes out because I will kick. your. butt. (or you'll be crying from laughing so hard over the enthusiasm, either way-) ^_^
soooooo.... apparently this needs to be said. Guys, I don't do the whole f*ck buddy thing, I'm not comfortable with it, it's just not my style. If you're sending me naked pics of yourself after a first date that didn't have any super obvious sparks then that's kind of a red flag and I'll probably stop texting you pretty quick. Just...have some dignity, please
