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 almost 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.
