I guess the elctromagnetic pull of the arch has lured me back to good ol' St. Louis (Parkway Central if you must know) after several years of traveling through Baltimore, Iowa, Portland, and Manhattan. I'm originally from the St. Louis, and my personality and compassion is certainly one of a midwesterner. My friends would describe me as an optimist, and a hopeless romantic with a huge heart who loves to cook. I'm honest, truly love my job as a physician, and am extremely passionate about writing. I am also developing a dog biscuit manufacturing company - yes, in addition to being a doctor, I'm a true dog-lover at heart! The right woman for me? You’re romantic, spontaneous and willing to try new things. You have a cute personality and are full of knowledge and spontaneity. You’re passionate about life and have a fun and creative side to your personality! Above all, you are a giver, and love nothing more than to bring a smile to another! I hate to be negative, but I've met many people recently who are rude, arrogant, and downright controlling. I'm not these things, I'm from the midwest and simply wasn't brought up that way. So, if you are, please don't contact me. There, now that I have that out of the way...Let's meet for a cup of coffee...Regular or decaf?
