finding new bands to listen to (usually indie these days)
albums that are great from start to finish
Dr Martens (there's a store in SoHo!)
divey/laid back bars
walking around the city
being in a park
computer programming (my job)
crosswords and other puzzles
talking about politics, philosophy, ideas, beliefs, etc.
playing around with drums (I occasionally take lessons)
Although I do like Dr. Martens and have a couple tattoos, I'm not a goth or biker chick. But nor am I the girly-girl wearing ballet flats and a trendy purse. I'm somewhere in the middle, finding my own way.
I'm not into the "see and be seen" scene or trendy things in general. I crave things that are sincere, genuine, honest, etc. This applies to most any form of expression, people, okcupid profiles...
I actually do put a lot of value in being a good person. I'm not perfect, but I try to be as good as I can, as often as I can. Looking for the same.
Lastly, a friend told me recently that she thinks I'm a bit unconventional when it comes to dating/relationships, and I think she's right to some extent. I am looking for a monogamous, rest-of-my-life sort of relationship (that part's pretty conventional), but I don't need to get married, not sure I want kids, and I don't ever see myself migrating to the suburbs. I want a real connection with a great guy, and I prefer to stay single until I find it rather than settle for something less.
