Not fashion conscious, but I'm not a slob. I clean up very well,
but often don't think about it much. I may come across as aloof,
but maybe a passing glance at my unexpectedly intense
hazel-greenish eyes happens occasionally. Maybe a woman might
notice me, if they are the observant type, and like the lean,
sensitive and thoughtful type. I believe I, in the confidence of my
own personality though not necessarily my social skills, fade and
blend into the background. I'm an observer, but can converse. I
don't often make a scene, and I'm under the impression that the hoi
poloi don't necessarily notice when I walk into a room. That's
fine, it's not in my nature to swagger or be be boisterously
extroverted, and I (for one) have put behind the subtle societal
pressures of the cultural expectations to be loud when I don't feel
like it, or to chatter when I have little of importance to say.
(Though, when nervous or excited, I can babble on a bit. Charmingly
so, I hope.)
I consider my self reticent and shy, though average folks in my
life at work and play don't believe this self-definition. On the
introverted side, but not at all a shadow. I am an extremely
patient person, an intellectual in variety of interests, and a
generally self-aware and evaluative person.
The type of woman I'm attracted to is intelligent, comfortable with
herself, strong-willed, forgiving, and mentally flexible. My
interests include all sciences, Sci-fi, Nature, Travel, Hiking,
Books, Current Events, Classical Music, Biology and pretty much
anything. I have an odd, quirky sense of humor, often amusing
myself more often than others. Basically I like people that are
curious and always learning. Being non-religious and having liberal
politics are musts.
And finally...I'm a sucker for scientists. A woman in pin-striped
pants also gives me pause. Oh, and gummy bears are my kryptonite.
