However, I also feel some people want to get right down to it, so here it is in a nut shell.
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 undeniable 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 connect 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, playing video games with a friend (not so much solo), photography, road trips, movies, Disneyland, Vegas, a pint with friends, healthy cooking, walks, animals (I've been called Ms. Doolittle many times), painting (although it's been over a year), and parentheses.
