In an increasingly impersonal world I am doing what I can to make it a friendlier one. If I have spare change, I give it to the next worthy panhandler I see. When I dine out (which is far too often) I always leave a 20% tip (or better) and tell my server "Thank you." I'll hold the door if I know someone is behind me. Having class is as important to me as is having self-respect and "other"-respect*. (*Trademark pending) Life is too short to be low-budget, mundane or pedestrian. It is why we live here.
Politically left of center, I have no patience for the right-wing hyperbolic nut-jobbery which seems to be a requirement of conservative elected officials. The only news I can stand to watch on TV is The Daily Show or The Colbert Report. Used to like Bill Maher's show but now it's just a platform for talking points and shouting matches. Anything else important I can see on my Google news feed.
I'm looking for a partner in fun for music, film, theater, dinner conversation, wine tasting, traveling, sharing, talk about my day, etc. You know, the fun stuff. I give as well as I get (especially w/ wine. Just ask my friends.)
I moved to our city to see great film, hear great bands and meet and befriend great people. I sincerely hope the woman I love will also embrace these experiences.
