I was born in Israel but my parents moved back to the U.S. when I was only a wee lad. I grew-up in middle America (Iowa, to be exact) and have stuck around the Midwest for most of my life (with the exception, of course, of traveling by plane, train, automobile, motorcycle and tuk tuk through over 30 countries). I went to Wash U for undergrad and grad school, then took a year off to work in Japan before returning to Chicago for med school and a PhD in chemical engineering.
I'm currently living in St. Louis finishing a residency in Ophthalmology at Wash U. Yes, that's the kicker--I don't currently live in Chicago so I'm looking for someone who is open to a mid-distance relationship for the next year or so while I finish residency (and yes, I'm willing to do as much as I can in terms of weekend travel to develop and maintain a relationship with the right person). This obviously begs the question, "Why are you looking for a girl in Chicago when you live in St. Louis?" And to that I would say, "Excellent question." To be honest, I've found it difficult to find someone here I connect with on multiple levels and who shares a common set of core values and outlook on life.
To that end, I'm looking for something serious (no games!) and definitely not interested in a casual hook-up or something purely for "fun." I'm a serious (yet funny, charming, charismatic, intelligent, thoughtful, goal-driven and successful) guy looking for an amazing woman to share my life with. If you've made it this far, who knows, that might be you! Don't be bashful, send me a message. :)
