I've been a student for longer than I can remember. I hold a BS in Biology and a Business Certificate from Indiana University. Currently, I'm finishing up optometry school. Kind of a huge nerd...I like girls and science...mostly science. I'm good at being goofy. I've got a kind of dark sense of humor—my philosophy is if you can't laugh about it how are you ever going to get over it? I'm really loyal and probably value that quality in others above all. Looking for someone kind, patient, self-aware, mature, smart, high energy, and driven. I do want a family one day with kids of my own.I am looking to settle down and start a family. I'm very compassionate, but never jealous or vengeful. I don't really party that hard, I go to bed early most nights, and honestly 3 beers and I've had it! Higher education like a masters or doctorate is cool, and a twisted sense of humor is a must. I like movies, hiking, nature, museums, plays, shooting, and sipping on old scotch under a hot Missouri night. My only weakness is grammar, spelling, and my messy nature (but I've worked really hard trying to be more organized). If you must know, I'm hopelessly optimistic, I love to cuddle, and I sleep with a smile of my face.
