"He's not a creep."
"He is more fun than staying at home alone with my cats. Unless I have a bottle of wine at home alone with my cats. Then it is a close call."
"He is rather easily amused, particularly by his own jokes."
"He weirdly is both very sweet (to me) and sarcastic as hell (to others)"
"Intermittently attentive and oblivious."
"He knows way more DC history trivia than is healthy."
"A damned good cook."
"My cats really liked him, especially Spike and Peeps."
"It is very nice that he took me to an art museum, but he knows absolutely nothing about art."
"A witty conversationalist with an endearing heart."
Self-summary (Oh, that was the question)
I am (or, at least think of myself as) confident but not cocky, highly educated but not pretentious, irreverent but not insulting, opinionated but open to new ideas, strong but attentive, sweet but not clingy, and highly analytical and inquisitive. And I have very high standards of ethics, integrity, and morality. I love finding humor in everday life all around us. I am looking for an intelligent, fun, somewhat unconventional woman who gets me for a long-term relationship. And she needs to be someone from whom I can learn, and someone with whom I can learn, as I find the best conversations are those in which I learn something, anything really. But I am not looking for frequent deep philosophical or political discussions. I crave witty banter.
