***Hurray for Obama!***
(If you don't feel the same way we probably won't get along.)
I'm a good listener--I trained briefly as a psychologist--but I won't analyze you. I like talking, thinking, going to the beach, exercising, riding my bike, being outside, friendly arguments, kindness, movies, warm, intelligent women who value connection, and who appreciate language but can tolerate a run-on sentence in a good cause.
I am thoughtful, introverted, and gregarious. (Yes, introverted and gregarious.)
This summer I went to the Newport Jazz Festival and then Acadia National Park in Maine with a few friends. Both trips were fantastic. I also visited Cape May and Ocean City New Jersey for a few days to spend time with my family and a different group of friends. The Jersey shore is also wonderful, and very different from the Maine coast. Both are beautiful in their own ways.
Movies: The Stunt Man, Dirty Pretty Things
Food: Pad Thai, margaritas, broccoli rabe sauteed in olive oil and garlic, oatmeal, and most other things.
Music: Last week I saw Gillian Welch and David Rawlings at the Grand Opera House in Wilmington. My first time seeing them live, and they were great! The venue was beautiful also. I also like Talking Heads, Beatles, Marcia Ball, Squirrel Nut Zippers, Beethoven, Mozart, and most classical and baroque music, Regina Spektor, Nellie McKay, Dave Brubeck, Dick Dale, Jimi Hendrix, Jefferson Airplane, Roches, Tom Waits and many others. See a pattern? I don't.
I like women who are curious, affectionate, intelligent, and liberal, with a sense of humor. If you tell me why you think I'm wrong about something, that can be interesting too. I'll listen, although I may not agree. Then you can do the same, and we'll get to a different place than where we started.
