I don't go out much to meet and mingle and I suppose I like the thought of being able to seek rather than be sought. Plus, there are fewer awkward moments online than in person! So, we'll see...
As pretentious as this may sound, I'm interested in hearing from someone who complements my being. If you have recreational habits that cause you to donate brain cells (and you freely illustrate this in your profile picture), then we're probably not compatible. Most important, I do enjoy intellectual conversations. Not everyone will obtain advanced degrees, but education is important to me.
I suppose I appear to be too picky, but I think most people are. So I suppose there are at least three prerequisites I consider in a potential match: education (at least a BA/BS), height (at least 5'11"), and physical appearance.
If this has offended anyone, that is not my intent. Trust me, despite the tone in the aforementioned, I'm a clown at times!
