Hi, I'm J.D. I graduated from Muhlenberg College, and I come from Long Island, NY. I'm currently attending DePaul University for my Phd in Philosophy (I'm in my 5th year). My program tends to be pretty intense and cloistered, so it doesn't afford me much of an opportunity to meet people.
I would describe myself as sensitive and intellectual, and I have a pretty sarcastic and self-deprecating sense of humor. I'm very passionate about my studies and would like to find someone who values education as much as I do. I enjoy discussing literature, film, and politics, and I love dogs (my family recently got a Havanese named Dexter - yes, named after the tv serial killer - but he's in NY). I try to stay pretty active - I go to the gym as often as I can (though grad school has certainly encroached on my gym-time). I hope to inspire others the same way my own favorite professors have inspired me, and I would like to teach at a small liberal arts college (perhaps even my alma mater) some day. In general, I'm looking for someone who is very intelligent and romantic, someone who values good conversation and emotional intimacy. It's very important to me that my partner can stimulate and enrich me intellectually. I hope, however, that I don't come across as too bookish here - I also want to find someone with a good sense of humor and (please excuse the cliche) a "down-to-earth" personality, a girl who can also take a break from heavy intellectual conversations, and I'm definitely looking for a committed relationship. Studying and teaching philosophy affords me a great deal of fulfillment, but there will always be something missing in my life as long as I don't have someone to share it with (and if it bothers you that I ended that last sentence with a preposition, we might be soul mates!)
