I am a postdoc in chemistry addicted to life in college. No, do not think of the crazy partying... :)
I enjoy the open environment, diversity and interesting people one can meet around universities. This is my attempt to reach to the real professional world, since i am getting a little old for dating my college friends. I plan to continue my career in research, and my options are pretty flexible at this point.
I am new to the Bay Area, so it would also be nice to make new friends.
My favorite pastime activities with friends vary from coffee breaks, to theater and performing arts, to outdoors, natural parks, and traveling. I am not a big sports fan, but i enjoy being bad at tennis, swimming, badminton and skating. However fun these are, i would like to find that special person and have a more family oriented life style.
Other than the usual qualities that make any relationship reliable, i cannot give any clear description of my ideal match since i like to discover new people. Although we judge the wits quite subjectively, I put a lot of emphasis on the spiritual life and intellect, and for me they play a big role in the chemistry of a relationship.
