I'm a rabid democrat, pop-culture junkie, lifelong musician, addicted to conversation, very politically aware, very easy going, happy most all the time -- happier for sure when I'm sharing this wonderful life with someone wonderful. Love a good meal out (and a good red) with friends but also a salad, pizza and a movie at home. Definitely NOT as comfortable in a suit as in jeans.
I read the New Yorker, but I've been known to watch Two and a Half Men. Have Philip Roth, Malcolm Gladwell, Sue Grafton, Russell Brand, Sherwin Nuland and Stieg Laarson on my Kindle. Saw Chris Cornell, Elvis Costello, Goo Goo Dolls, and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs recently, and also Yo-yo Ma and Keith Jarrett (unfortunately not together...can you imagine?!).
I can be a little workaholic, but also have a healthy capacity for laziness (ok, I don't know how healthy it is :). I'm very affectionate with my friends, my family, every one I love...and especially with the one I love. I love animals (definitely a dog person), I think the people in my life would describe me as kind, generous of heart and spirit, smarter than the average bear, and...well, god only knows what else they would say...I guess you'll have to ask them! All that said, I'm probably more complicated than I think, but you'll have to be the judge of that. More later if you're interested.
As for what I'm looking for...basically, somebody who is truly comfortable in her own skin, someone happy (unless there's a compelling reason not to be) who likes who she is, and who likes me as much as I like her. Kindness, compassion, curiosity, passion, we make each other melt, we trust, we rely, you get the idea.
I'm FAR more interested in what makes you tick, fascinates you, motivates you, and preoccupies you than I am in whether you go to spin class 5 times a week or spend hours at the gym. Healthy is great, don't get me wrong, but it's what's inside the vessel that is most important to me.
Other than that, we'll just have to play it by ear. I think we'll both know it if it's right.
