I think people should be passionate about the things that matter to them. I'm passionate about a lot, and I talk pretty enthusiastically about what I love. Good conversation is necessary. Wit is of course a plus.
In an alternate universe I play guitar, sing folk music, am barefoot a lot, spend all my time outdoors in various altered psychological states. "Love in her eyes and flowers in her hair," you know.
As it is at the moment, though, I'm doing the professional thing here in the city, acting and schooling my butt off. It's pretty great too.
Just reactivated my profile after taking a break for a few months because online dating is the fucking worst. But cynicism has yet to get me much of anywhere, so I'm back for now.
