I have been working as a Web Programmer for 15 years. I hope to eventually go to graduate school to pursue medical research. I'm also dabbling in attempting to write children's stories. I have many interests in life. Some of these are: chemistry, medicine, history, story writing, cooking, classical music and playing the violin. I also like to participate in some sports including basketball, tennis, biking and swimming. I enjoy not only classical music but most other kinds of music. I like to go out and dance but I also enjoy a night at home with good food and conversation. I am very successful but down to earth. Most people describe me with one word, tenacious! If I want something I have a very difficult time giving up. Although, this is a positive quality most of the time, it can be detrimental at other times. I'm looking for a man who has similar interests as me or can at least appreciate my life's passions. I'm interested in making new friends and a possible long-term relationship down the road if the right person comes along. If a relationship were to develop it would be with a man who can be open and direct about his thoughts and feelings. Although I do realize it takes time to develop the trust to be able to do this for both people. I do have many interests already but I enjoy trying new things. That's another phrase that could be used to describe me, open-minded. I have to add an extra note. I'm not willing to meet anyone in private right away. I have to get to know someone in public for quite a while. I'm really looking for friendship first and then maybe something more if it works out.
