I tend to be really blunt, but I think I am getting better at reining that in. I love playing pool, swimming in pools (or oceans, but not so much lakes), and spending quality time with my puppy (who is actually 9). I like to sing really loudly in my car, and see if I can get people stopped at traffic lights to sing along if I'm singing something they might know. You would be surprised how often it works. I love NPR, I think it makes me a far better driver, in addition to that whole being aware of what's going on in the world around me benefit. I don't actually dislike cats, I'm severely allergic, so if you have them, I'm allergic to you too. Nothing personal. But I'm also not particularly fond of them, most of my friends who have cats look like they tried to slit their wrists at least once a week, thanks to that kitty love.
As for the person I'm looking for, I value education, open-mindedness, and lack of creepiness (I feel like I shouldn't have to specify this, but that's the internet for you). I also believe there is something to the match percentages, so if our percentage is low, we probably differ on some pretty critical issues.
Movies - Rent, Shawshank Redemption, Hot Fuzz, Remember the Titans, Bend It Like Beckham, Shaun of the Dead, Hunger Games, The Avengers and (most of) the related movies, How to Train Your Dragon... I really love kids' movies, most movies based off comic books, action, and comedy, but I'll watch nearly anything, except for horror.
Television - Scrubs, Game of Thrones, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Bones, Modern Family, 30 Rock, Mad Men, How I Met Your Mother, Burn Notice.
Music - Linkin Park, Sarah McLachlan, Adele, Paramour, Muse, The Beatles, The Eagles, Green Day, NIN, Jem, and so many others. When I am stressed or studying, I listen to classical, Celtic, or random Native American flute music I find on YouTube. My taste in music changes depending on my mood, but I'll listen to anything twice.
Food - Sushi. And dim sum. That's pretty much all I need to exist. And wine, does wine count? I really enjoy cooking, but I tend to get bored cooking for just me, so I often eat fairly uninspired things unless I find people I can feed.
- You value science over creationism
- You don't answer affirmatively to the questions on homosexuality being a sin, or gay people not being allowed to married. If you believe this, we have absolutely nothing in common.
- You know anything about camping, because I really want to start
- You are not a serial killer, and would be willing to take me camping so I don't accidentally fall off a mountain.
