Also, I feel getting to know someone who isn't right for me is not a waste of time. Exchanging laughs, and perspectives is fun. Think of it, in what other time in history have people been able to be this intimate with potential friends and suitors in this virtual capacity? It's science fiction dewd! This is good stuff!
[Edit] Okay sure, getting to know someone that I'm not a match with isn't a waste of time. But, I'm getting burned out on those types of meetings. . . I want sparks! Talking until the sun comes up! An amazing first kiss! Where are you sparky, talky, kissy person!?
By far, mannerisms, humor, intelligence, and an easy going attitude are the biggest factors that determine chemistry between me and another person. The next layer on top of that, which increases an attraction, is a big tall seasoned gamer. If you only own a Wii, "your princess is in another castle."
The reason I seek a gaming partner so much, is the mutual exploration, discovery and surprise right from the comfort of home. Rain or shine, any season, any age, people can connect in a fantasy world. It's a very rich way to bond with a partner.
However, I'm open to all sorts of lifestyles. It just needs to include elements of adventure.
I like reading sci-fi and fantasy, photography, road trips, movies, Disneyland, Vegas, a pint with friends, healthy cooking, walks, animals (I've been called Ms. Doolittle many times), finding hot springs, jacuzzis and painting.
