I'm at a new stage in my career, seems like my friends are all in new stages of their lives, and Boston has a new mayor. (I don't really care about the latter, but I needed a third "new.") With all this newness, seems like a new person to spend my time with is in order.
I've been known to be argumentative, but mostly, I get a kick out of ranting (Lewis Black makes me happy), I appreciate the humor in life's absurdities, and my friends, at least, find me entertaining. Kids make me smile, so it's only appropriate I became a pediatrician. Still, I got the "Not Patch Adams" award my intern year. I think that was for not being the most touchy-feely resident. Either that or they were complimenting me on being less sweaty than Robin Williams. But I do love my job, and my coworkers are my extended family.
I like people who have direction in life--not necessarily a straight path to one particular goal, but at least an idea of what they want to get out of this ride, and the passion and commitment to go for it. I am a simple guy who still appreciates a touch of elegance. I need someone who will keep me on my toes and on my feet. All that said, what I really want is to meet someone who inspires me, who makes me want to win her heart and make her smile every day, because all sarcasm aside, I'm still a hopeful (not hopeless) romantic.
