As for the types of men I like: I like the well cultured. In other words, a romantic of sorts, someone with whom I can carry on a conversation about politics without either party getting angry, someone who listens to new ideas even if they don't necessarily agree or accept. Poor grammar is a turn off and so is being over-serious.
I readily admit that I love Victorian literature and that Charles Dickens is also one of my favorites, but I have a serious guilty pleasure for reading funny celebrity memoirs: Tina Fey, David Sedaris, Chelsea Handler, etc.
I'm also a sports fanatic. Giants and Yankees fan.
