I'm what you call a "slasher" an actress/designer/comedienne/math tutor/bartender. Now applying to PhD programs for cognitive science.
. I'm a serious nerd - but rarely serious. I love hanging out, just one of the guys, and then like to dress up and have them not recognize me. I love traveling and trying new experiences but I definitely have opinions on things I've tried. I hate even numbers - primes are the best. I think sharing experiences validates them, but alone time is a necessity. I generally take the stairs instead of the escalator - it's quicker! Does efficiency mean you're lazy? I'd consider myself an active person and I'm one of the few girls who actually does like camping (now spiders are a different story!) And hiking? I Love!
I'm looking to meet interesting guys/men who have something to add to the conversation - someone who's just as willing to go to a museum, or a bar, or on a hike, or see a play, or baseball game! I promise I won't let a conversation drop - I can come up with witty stories all day and night(generally) - but I'd much rather learn about you too. Intelligence turns me on... a lot.
Caveat: I am a very healthy person, emotionally, and I won't fall into the those patterns all your exes did... I am not clingy or overly emotional or overly dramatic. I will either let conflicts go or I will confront major issues directly. I have been accused of being overly rational (even though that doesn't make sense to me). If you need crazy, I'm not your gal.
Here's a hint: "Hi. How u doin?" is not really a compelling message for me to spend time responding to. And I can't help but cringe every time I see "u" or "ur" typed into an email - Maybe you can do that in a text message but it's a pet peeve of mine to see it in an email. Hey, I'm a nerd - I get to have grammatical pet peeves. If you want me to respond PLEASE ask some kind of interesting question... if I don't respond, sorry, we're prob just not a good match. By the way... Unless you are Ryan Gosling I'm pretty much not going to respond to "Hi." or the eloquent "ur hot" - I really don't see a beneficial conversation arising from a series of statements so ask me some interesting or funny or silly question to give me a starting point for responding. Amendment: I will not respond unless there is some kind of question asked- otherwise I know you haven't read any of this... Haha- it's a test.
If I have taken a peek at your profile multiple times, I'm being coy, sometimes I try to find just the right words - but if you're interested go ahead and message me first. And to all you boys with half naked pics... Thanks for the visuals- generally that's all I find interesting on your profile... But the world does need beauty!
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
I'd love to find some place and activity we've both never done but always wanted to... or a combination of a favorite pastime and a crazy new restaurant. I thrive on dichotomy!
I am moving back to the area and I really don't know anywhere... Anyone know of good karaoke spots?
I'm always up for something new - and I love decisiveness in men.
