*Anyways*, for me it's all about banter and verbal chemistry. Most things--interests, politics, and so forth--are negotiable, so long as we have enough in common, you know, to get past date two. But verbal chemistry (really, flirting)--like Aaron Sorkin shows and movies--that's hard to replicate.
Other than that, some self-aggrandizing and obligatory online dating comments are that my friends will probably tell you that I'm smart, and then they'll tell you that I'm driven, but that I choose to drive at things that make a difference. They'll laugh at some of my ridiculous quirks, and they roll their eyes when I get onto long (albeit entertaining) tangents. But they'll all agree that at the end of the day, I do my best to be loyal, honest, and focused on what matters.
As for what I'm looking to find, it starts with the verbal chemistry, but it is also about finding someone who laughs at my jokes, makes me smile at the end of a tough day, and above all else, will inspire me to keep becoming a better person with each passing day.
