Since I find it impossibly hard to do myself justice writing in these little boxes(what with my sparkling personality, razor-sharp wit, generous nature, great sense of humor, chivalrous attitude, and penchant for doing the right thing), I'm going to talk about something that has been bothering me-
New York. Well, at least Long Island. I don't have anything against it, per se- I'm sure it's a great place to live and whatnot. But really, Plenty of Fish, I'm not interested in dating people from Long Island. Not unless they're planning on moving to Connecticut in the very near future. Otherwise, the best I can do is stand on the beach and wave. Granted, it may only be about 9 miles away from my house, but it's about a 4 hour car ride (or a very long swim). Apparently the matching algorithm on here doesn't take large bodies of water into account. But POF isn't alone- I'm not driving to Riverhead, New York, to do my shopping Best Buy, Target, Lowe's, and whoever else thinks that's convenient for me.
Anyway, I'm sure there's other important stuff that this site thinks I should put in here, like how I'm completely disease free and have excellent personal hygiene, what a great person I am, how old people love me, or words of wisdom like "Don't take your fluoroquinolones with divalent cations", but I don't want to bore anyone.
Well, maybe I'll just bore you a little bit with some of the details, since POF thinks I need to talk about myself to be successful on here. I like to think I'm fairly well-rounded- I'm smart, athletic, financially and emotionally stable, respectful, and adored by parents and grandparents. I can spell and utilize proper grammar for the most part (apparently it's a qualification for a lot of girls), have a decent career in front of me (pharmacist, so not that kind of doctor), and I brake for small animals and children. I'm a great listener and conversationalist, and make people feel very comfortable around me. According to the Myers-Briggs test, I'm an INTJ (for what it's worth). I'm a bit nerdy (minus the whole social awkwardness part)- I geek out to things like video games, comic books, and horror movies. I try to go to a few concerts every year (I'm a big punk rock fan and a closet metalhead) and enjoy smaller shows. I'm a big Boston sports fan (from birth, and I have the cutest picture to prove it) and love going to baseball/football/hockey/basketball games. I have a passion for traveling and plan to do a lot more of it (it helps that I have 5 weeks of vacation).
I know at this point you're thinking I'm probably full of feces (not sure if PoF allows me to swear or not), but I promise I'm a pretty decent catch (and not lying. I can provide references). Send me a message (hopefully one that consists of more than "Hey"- seriously, guys get those too). I enjoy conversations and meeting new people. Also feel free to shoot any drug-related questions my way- I need to practice my patient counseling and could use some test subjects.
What I would do for a first date? Well, food is always good, so I'm thinking probably some place where they serve that. Maybe a restaurant of some sort. One where you don't order from a menu located above the cashier. I love trying new restaurants, so preferably some place I haven't been before but want to try. Drinks or coffee work well too. I'm also not opposed to activity-oriented dates like biking, hiking, kayaking, golfing(mini- or regular), or something of that nature, but I think those are better suited for 2nd or 3rd dates. Marching off into the woods miles from civilization or paddling into the Sound with someone I barely know just sounds like a recipe for me to get murdered.
