I'm kind of unconventional: brainy, sensual, equal parts silly and serious, ditsy and deep, physical and cerebral. I'm finishing a doctoral degree in mathematics, and this pursuit obviously occupies a lot of my time and energy. Outside of math however, I’m all over the map: I enjoy literature, art, (generally foreign or independent) movies, jazz & blues, good food, good coffee and most of all good conversation! I tend to read and think a lot about philosophical and spiritual matters, and this general sensibility infuses most areas of my life in some way. I'm warm and compassionate, but also analytical and independent shy at first, but absolutely revel in good conversation as I get to know someone better.I would love to meet a man who is bright, intense, warm, independent-spirited , wacky, fun, deep, thoughtful and kind. Chemistry is crucial, but also fundamentally mysterious and as such I really do not have a particular physical type. I'm fairly active and would love for you to be interested in joining me for walks, bike rides or jogs, but if this isn't your cup of tea it's not a big deal (can always drag the Poodle or a girlfriend out for a walk, right?) My ideal relationship is one where we are best friends, lovers, partners-in-arms, independent yet devoted, sharing enough fundamentally in common to be each other's ultimate "comfort zone," yet still different enough to challenge, unsettle, excite and deeply intrigue one and other.
