I like the art of conversation; like to read things that are well-written; and like to watch stuff that makes me feel something. Easy to talk to, down to earth, sometimes blunt, kind-hearted, open-minded, introspective, emotionally intelligent, prefers small pleasures, altruistic, empathetic, non materialistic, quirky, eccentric, focused but fun-loving, prefer quality over quantity and substance over style (well a bit of style won't hurt), a bit reserved but warms up quickly.
My sense of humor leans more toward the dry-witted side. Eclectic tastes in movies, music, art and books. Likes fitness, different cultures and have a plethora of other interests that you'll find out about once we get to know each other. By no means perfect, definitely a work-in-progress.
Books: Love in the time of cholera; One hundred years of solitude; Killing Johnny Fry; To kill a mockingbird; Kite runner; A thousand splendid suns; And the mountains echoed...
Shows: I don't watch a lot of tv, but if I do shows like Seinfeld; Frasier; Mad Men; Scandal; The Daily Show; Big Bang Theory; Modern Family; Curb your enthusiasm; Walking Dead; HGTV; BBC
Music: A little of everything from most genres...from Debussy to Drake...good music is good music, however I do lean more heavily toward alternative/indie music and oldies...
Food: A little of everything once it's palette-pleasing...Thai & Italian are high on the list.
Movies: Coen Bros; Scorsese; Woody Allen; Wes Anderson...it goes on...Psychological thrillers, some comedies, mostly foreign films, independent movies, and stuff off the beaten path.
I know it's hard to put into words what one looks for in a person without doing the generic laundry list. That said, I'm going to try this approach: whomever "they" are, always say, you'll know when you find him. I know I will. It has to do with the entire package, our attraction, how we communicate, our values and that je ne sais quoi.
We'll both know because we'd be consistent, committed and genuinely interested in wanting to get to know each other...in sharing details of our past, present and future...it'll seem effortless...and we'll both be looking forward to it.
