What else? I read quickly, I type quickly, and I write quickly. Most everything else gets done at a more relaxed, mellow pace. Cults are uncool (no Scientologists, please). Atheist. Liberal. Feminist. Pro-equal rights for everyone. Carnivore. Lazy artist and writer. Tealdeer. Information junkie. Skeptic. Occasional clove cigarette smoker. Child-free. Doting aunt. Ferret wrangler. Grouch. Grammar cop. Good friend. An amateur photographer with realistic assessment of skills (I get lucky now and then).
I am turned off by: people with blatantly sexual login names, illiteracy, rudeness, and an apparent inability to hold a conversation with me about our common interests BEFORE hitting on me. IF I were on here for dating purposes, I would be ONLY interested in straight, single males 6 years younger to 6 years older than myself. BUT I am only on here for FRIENDS (and to take silly quizzes): Friends with similar interests. I'm not here to "hook up" with strangers for sex. I like sex as much as the next person, maybe more, but I'm choosy.
Helpful hints: I'm not going to be impressed with comments about my appearance. I'm not going to e-mail you at your personal e-mail address, because MY personal e-mail is none of your business unless I offer it to you. (Also, you could be a spammer.) I'm not going to stop what I'm doing to go fire up another chat program for your convenience. I'm NOT going to send you pictures of me, clothed or otherwise. Please don't ask me to go out of my way to make contacting me more convenient FOR YOU if we've never even met before, that's extremely presumptuous and rude.
Dudes...I hate to have to add this to my profile, but I'm weary of the number of requests of this type I get nearly every time I log on. The worst offenders have not even bothered to fill out a profile yet (or post a photo, for that matter). Not only do these guys want me to give out my personal information immediately, or to stop what I'm doing to IM them with their preferred chat program, they do not bother to let me--or anyone else--know anything about them.
Don't be that guy.
I am attracted to: wit, style, intelligence, good grammar and spelling, a quirky sense of humor, individualists, brunet men with great hair, literate people, musicians, artists, writers, kindness, devotion to friends and family and pets, cleverness, creativity, charm, Brits. But all of that is irrelevant, because I'm not here "shopping for a mate".
What else? Um. I like scones. And cheese. Cheese is yummy.
I am eclectic, music-obsessed, and kind-hearted.
