My description:

I am currently finishing the last year of my BS in chemistry.  I am from Iowa, originally.

My son is 12 and he lives in Arizona with his mama.  We divorced in 2009 but have remained close friends.  I am open to having another child with someone who doesn't have one, but I am equally OK to enjoy the children of someone else or not have any more altogether. 

I like taking the time to get to know somone via the internet before meeting in person.  I am good with long distance relationships and don't expect commitment in such a situation, although I am ready to give it to the right person.  Not that it really matters much at present as I am too busy with school and volunteering in a breast cancer research lab to pursue relationships locally.  I am pretty open-minded about relaitonships and as long as my partner has affection and time to spend with me, I don't get jealous.  I expect the same in return.  I want my partner to do what makes her happy and gives her the most joy as long as previous commitments and responsibilities are honored.  I'm rather honest, sometimes to a fault.

I like playing guitar, reading, especially the classics, science, furthering my ability to think critically, improving my skeptical abilities, camping, hiking, watching movies/tv shows, good conversation with open-minded people who are not chained to rigid ideology, being affectionate, receiving affection, making the world a better place and more!

I also enjoy cooking and make most of my meals from scratch.  I bake all of my own bread, rolls, chapatis and naan by hand.  I have been told that I am a very good cook.  I very much like Indian, Thai, Chinese, Japanese, Italian (I am 25%) and Mexican foods.  I make an amazing tofurkey from scratch starting with the tofu, but I make it in the shape of a turtle and it has a head, tail, arms and legs.  I stuff it with a stuffing I make from my homemade bread and call it a tofurtle.  I love cooking for family and friends, but would not enjoy doing it for a living.


As for what I'm looking for, it's really simple:

A best friend would be swell:-) My best friend is mature enough to be responsible and immature enough to be goofy, make me laugh and have fun. They are very passionate in their beliefs and pursuits, yet open-minded enough to listen to new information and not blinded by fanaticism. They are very intelligent, considerate, patient, confident, kind, affectionate, industrious, strong in their sense of self, independent, musical, capable in the kitchen, not afraid to get their hands dirty working outside, and much more! Most importantly, they are capable of inspiring me to be the best man that I can possibly be so that our lives are mutually improved through our friendship. If you are musical, that would be icing on the the cake. Finally, if you think we might be a good match, I am interested in getting to know YOU, so please, don't be shy! I look forward to hearing from you! I like getting to know people before I meet them.  I am in no rush and like to take things slow as things tend to pick up speed rather fast after a physical meeting.

I am very interested in science and hope to find someone who also shares this passion, or at least has respect for it and is scientifically literate. I find women who are intellectually self-empowered coupled with the ability to recognize sensationalized propaganda very attractive.  Yeah, that is probably a bit geekish, but I find intellectual prowess very attractive, especially when it is coupled with the ability to think critically, which many intelligent people unfortunately are not very good at bc they lack literacy in science.

Please don't feel that you have to meet all of the criteria. Someone's ideal is a rather tall order and rarely achievable. Few of us are completely true to our own ideals, but that we have them and are striving to achieve them is what is important.

Oh, and I suppose the most important thing I am looking for in a partner is that she has an insatiable desire for me as I do for her and pleasing me makes her as happy as it makes me when I go out of my way to please her. While this may be a bit antiquated, love is finding happiness in serving the needs of others and finding fulfillment within this service.  Love is a balance of giving and receiving, but also recognizing that in reality, balance is somthing we should strive for knowing that it is something that cannot be maintained beyond a single point in time.  Balance is the result of constant oposition, or, maybe it is better to say, mutual grattitude and generosity towards those we love.  That being said, I think that we can be within healthy range of the center when there is reciprocity.

I would love to hear from you, so feel free to drop me a line!  Aloha for now.
