I’m looking for someone who’s an active reader, who reads the newspaper regularly, likes books, whether history or literature, who has a sense of humor, and especially likes to tell jokes. I like movies of all sorts, though these days I don’t seem to get to them as often as I’d like. I would love a friend with whom to see first-run films and talk about them together afterwards, over coffee or a glass of wine.
Politics are really important; they have been since I was in my late teens, and if you’re conservative, you're probably looking for someone else.
I love long walks in cities, and I’m learning again how great it is to spend more time outdoors, such as hiking. But if you're a good dancer, and are patient, I'd also like to get better at a simple dance like the waltz.
