… love football, specifically Vikings football. I am open to the possibility of dating a cheesehead, but I struggle with the idea of a relationship with no real future.
… are not allergic to cats or dogs.*
... like Bloody Marys and are willing to drink mine after I eat all the stuff that comes with it (leave me the beer chaser).
... drink coffee.
... eat some meat, or at least won't be disgusted when I do it.
… do not spend the majority of your free time playing video games. You associate with 3 dimensional people daily.*
... like to read for pleasure.
… are politically/socially liberal.*
… aren't shy and are willing to talk.
... are not LOOKING to have kids. I'm ok if you already have children; I'm just not going to have any myself.*
... are ok with the fact that I am an atheist. You can be a believer (but NOT a Belieber), but you cannot try to save me from eternal damnation. To be honest, though, if you even THINK that I'm going to hell it's likely that we'll have some problems.*
... are in a softball league, but not an uber-serious one. I don't want to play, myself; I have just always wanted to develop a ritual of going to watch a game and then going to the neighborhood bar for a pitcher of beer every Tuesday (it's not really THAT specific a fantasy- Thursday would be fine too).
... won't make me watch sad or scary movies. I look like shit when I cry and I won't even open my eyes in a horror movie.
... will write SOMETHING to which I can respond. Please don't make me do all the work in carrying forth a conversation.*
This really isn't a big long checklist of what "is and is not acceptable". I'm just trying to give you stuff to which you might want to respond/discuss.
