Let me make something very clear to start off: if you're sending a message, be sure that you actually remember your grade school grammar lessons before doing so. Reading things like "hi u am so nice im interested u wanna talk im [insert name here]" literally make me laugh uncontrollably.
I'm a graduate student perusing my Masters and PhD. I also am an instructor at a University. I love the research I do in the world of language. Education is something I love and value. If you're not snoring by now, keep going.
Travel, cooking, and exploring different cultures and their traditions are a few of my interests. Reading is something I have to do for my profession and studies, but I love reading for pleasure. I also write when I get the opportunity. I love being a foodie and a chef when I get the time to explore in the kitchen. From time to time I mix drinks too, though I prefer cracking open a Stella Artois or tasting a new wine.
I tend to be irritated with most people my own age. I'm not the kind of woman who wears ugg boots and yoga pants and has her hair straightened just like the other girl next to her wearing a Northface fleece... limitless creativity right there folks. I have a deep appreciation for those who try to express their originality.
Who am I looking for? Someone intelligent, not overly self absorbed, who knows what he wants to do in life and is doing it. Confidence and a great sense of humour are key. I want to be able to be silly with him, write him little love notes, and hold him not saying a word. Other days our lives could be surrounded by poetry, philosophy, great works of art, the beauty of language, the seductive nature of travel, or just how delicious the pasta we're eating is.
Something relaxed, fun, and a place where we both can share a good chat over a mug of coffee or a plate of something tasty. I love a good culinary adventure! Wine is an extra bonus.
