I still think physical attraction is very important and it's still a broad category. Physical attraction to me can be anything from a warming smile, a twinkle in the eye, a friendly demeanor, an infectious laugh, a fun personality, (all of which I do believe manifest physically) to a nice style, an attractive face, a sexy body, and a woman just being feminine. What's on the inside does count a great deal as well, and I would more than take note of that. I find confidence attractive and a stage 5 clinger, not at all. Seriously, I can't stand it if you need constant attention. Believe me, you will get plenty.
I am allergic to cats, but I do like dogs, so I don't want to waste your time if you can't live without your cat(s). I don't have a dog currently, but once the backyard is fenced in, I am seriously considering getting one.
Normally, I can be shy at first but that usually means I'm interested. This may differ when meeting someone (from) online, as I've never done this before. Get me on the right topic though and I will be hard to shut up. I do understand the term of chemistry, and not in a scientific sense (although I understand that too!) I have nothing wrong with "comfortable silences". I've been told that sometimes I beat to a "different drummer" and I am sometimes proud of that. I think it takes all kinds to inhabit the world. However some might say I'm quite normal. I like staying at home with a good dinner and any form of home entertainment (movie, tv, games) but it's also nice to go out as well, patios, movies, dining, clubs, etc. I'm not the camping type, but a cabin wouldn't be out of reach (no I don't have one, just saying).
I have great interests in the arts, specifically performance arts, which include film. I'm drawn to science fiction but can enjoy anything from a silly comedy to a chick flick as well. I love basketball and soccer, and still like baseball but what I think would be most fun is sharing your passion for something. Influence me. Even trying a new restaurant can be a great thing.
Although I call myself Catholic and Christian, I would not push something like that on you unless you were interested, just please don't push Atheism on me. At this point in my life I believe its more of a personal spiritual thing, and I highly doubt I would change my mind.
