I'm of the opinion that a couple should have things in common. I don't buy the opposites attract thing. I mean they do, but it's probably temporary. If you have common interests then you'll actually want to do things with that person. One should not have to compromise with who they are for anyone. Obviously there is some compromise, but who shouldn't have to pretend to like things someone likes just because you like them. But hey, I'm single, wtf do I know?
I guess I'm looking for a magical relationship like in Moulin Rouge, but without the prostitutes, death, or singing. Okay, nothing like Moulin Rouge at all. Well, maybe the singing.
I tend to be quiet a lot of the time, but I listen well. So if you can handle that. It's not because I get mad or anything, I'm just quiet. Unless we talk about something I like or know enough about to be confident I'll only sound moderately dumb.
Since people seem overly concerned with the job thing, I might as well let you know I'm an engineer. If you want to know what kind, ask.
I tend to be goofy as much as possible, but I'm perfectly capable of being serious when the situation calls for it.
If we have similar music tastes it's a bonus. I find the people I have the easiest time being around have similar music tastes. I think what type of music you listen to says a lot about what kind of person you are.
I like horrible action movies, and I'm willing to admit they are horrible. The first step is admitting you have a problem. But I never take another step.
Also, for all my nerdyness, I am still an avid fan of professional football. Hopefully you can deal with that too.
