While I realize that talking politics on a dating site is sketchy at best, it ia a HUGE part of who I am. No matter what path in life I take, I hope to spend my entire life working to end environmental degradation and pollution, combat the drastic effects of global climate change, fight discrimination, protect human rights, and eliminate disease, hunger, poverty, violence, and war. Yes, to quote a favorite song of mine, some “may say I am a dreamer…but I am not the only one.” While it is far from perfect, I think some of the most powerful documents ever written are the United Nation’s Universal Declaration of Human Rights and its 4 sister documents that make up the International Bill of Human Rights. To be clear since everyone is so fond of labels: I am a flaming uber-liberal, progressive, quasi-socialist, bleeding heart, ardent believer in liberal internationalism and humanitarian intervention, defender and lover of the welfare state, protector of the social safety net, pro-immigrant, pro-LGBT rights, anti-gun, and a tree hugging dirt worshiping environmental hippie.
So what am I looking for? Without a doubt, personality is the key for me. I want someone who has a sense of humor and is able to enjoy life; someone who is optimistic and positive; someone who has their own hopes and dreams for life; someone who values education and wants to learn about a variety of different things; someone who is a sports fan; someone who enjoys traveling when time and money allows; someone who shares my interests as it pertains to books, movies, music, and television; someone who shares and understands my general outlook, philosophies, and passions in life; and ultimately someone wants to make the world a better place in a meaningful way. It would be great to find someone who enjoys going out to a ballgame, a hike, star watching, a museum, comedy show, a game night with friends, or just a movie night between the two of us all the same. Starting a family is of the utmost importance to me so a must have is someone who wants to start a family within a reasonable period of time.
