I'm more drawn to functionality and usefulness than form or pomp... which ends up making me a horrible consumer because I know exactly what I want (most of the time) and how it should work and how much I want to pay for it... the trick is finding something that meets my criteria.
What do I want? In a professional sense for now I'm happy just working as an software developer with my sights on more of a lead developer role in future, perhaps even for myself in future.
In a personal sense I'd like to meet someone who isn't a pushover (and could kick my rear if I got out of line), someone who has her own values and ideas and will rationally fight for them when necessary. Call me crazy but if a person can't rationally quantify why they believe what they believe and why they think it is important they need a serious reexamination of their ideals.
Rather than the traditional house with the picket fence and 2.5 children... ideally I'd like a plot of land with a house on it (picket fence is optional) for actual (medium scale) agricultural use along with perhaps a kid or three, a hunting dog, and a certain degree of self-reliance and tranquility.
Despite being a bit of a geek who likes technology, overall I'm really just a simple guy.... I've never been much of a partier or drinker (although I do enjoy a good beer), instead I enjoy a nice casual walk and talk or sit and talk, a few tv shows and podcasts and contemplation (and discussion) of most topics under the sun.
I am non-creative, evil, and objective
