I've come to figure out there are a few things I'd really like to find in the girl I wind up seriously dating:
I'd like her to be nerdy, not like "can't date me because I like TNG over TOS," nerdy, but nerdy enough to get that joke.
Someone who understands the value of just staying in sometimes. I like to go out and socialize, but not every night. It gets expensive and it stops being special/fun pretty quick. There's lot of good stuff on Netflix too, lets get caught up in a show together.
A partner who appreciates what I do for them and assumes the best of me; even though sometimes I don't say or do the right thing. I'm not perfect, I don't expect you to be either. If we were both doing everything right all the time without effort, it wouldn't really mean anything.
Some more about me (my old profile):
Like an irrelevant spring break top 10 list, here is me in a top 10 list form:
10.) I'm a bit of a writer. I run a website that handles video games, movies and music; it's a lot of work and effort for little gain but who cares cause I really love it. This isn't my day job though.
9.) I'm very sarcastic and have been called witty more than once. I can have a conversation about almost anything, but philosophy, science, politics and history (to name a few) stand out. I can also argue with someone for an hour and not only refrain from hating them but actually like them more if it is civil and enlightening.
8.) I make an amazing home-made mac n' cheese. I'm constantly learning how to cook new (and more healthy) things too.
7.) I openly admit I am a nerd. My obsession with The Simpsons is the stuff of legend and I think girls who are into sciency stuff are sexy.
6.) I have made movies and music, and would be happy to discuss either. If you are a girl and are musically inclined I will be smitten with you very quickly. Especially if you sing or play the viola, as my favorite band has a cute viola player and I can then transfer my crush on her to you.
5.) I'm incredibly patient and if you ever meet most of my former roommates you'll never doubt that statement. Holding grudges long term does not come easily for me.
4.) I do not go to nearly enough happy hours. Cheap drinks and good conversation are two of my favorite things.
3.) I have a degree in Political Science, but I'm not really using it in any function.
2.) Most people who actually get to know me think I'm awesome. These people have done their research and should be listened to.
1.) I'm originally from Wisconsin and have only lived up here for a couple of years now. So yes, I like beer. Yes, beer is important enough to be in the #1 spot. Coffee is also amazing, and by amazing I mean life blood of the gods.
Seriously though, if you are so set in your ways with these things that you put significant clout into what movie someone likes, enough that you would consider not going on a date with them anyway, then we wouldn't work out. Let's discover we love the same film no one else ever mentions the old fashioned way, by reading each-others facebook pages.
Bunnies; sweet, fluffy bunnies.
Oh, and I put ages 18-99 because I don't want to discourage an awesome 20 year old or an equally awesome 38 year old from messaging/responding to me. 24-34 would probably be "where I'm aiming this bitch" at though.
