I had gone on the job market for the first time during my final year of graduate school, and things had looked promising.
I had close to 10 AHA interviews, five campus visits at various kinds of institutions ranging from the small liberal arts college to the top-tier Research I university, and was optimistic that I would wrap up the season with a wonderful job. I did end up with a wonderful position, but a temporary one as a postdoctoral scholar in a part of the country where I had never imagined living.
Dating sites, social networks and chats allow us to get acquainted with new people without leaving home.
I had been lucky to have had a few interviews, and all I could do was refresh my e-mail every few minutes, hoping for any updates.
Most people write a string of adjectives to describe themselves and end up sounding generic.
How many women feel just as comfortable in a little black dress as they do in a pair of jeans?
If you have trouble describing what makes you unique and beautiful, I can help. I’m also working on getting through the ten books on my nightstand. I really feel at home in nature, whether it’s sitting with my adorable nephews on the pier overlooking Lake Michigan or traveling anywhere just for fun. I enjoy exploring off the beaten path and am looking for a partner to join me. I am looking for a man secure enough within himself to give and receive love in a mutually supportive and sharing relationship.
Right now, I’m reading “The Power of Now”, “Life is a Verb”, and “Daring Greatly”. I’m interested in a partner to share the wonders of life, someone who appreciates the small as well as the grand moments, a man who has a high energy level, who’s honest and open, and has a very positive outlook on life. About me I don’t sweat the small stuff, but I do enjoy the afterglow of sweating on my morning beach walks.
