Have eclectic cultural tastes, love films, especially documentaries. Into comedy, journalism, music, news, art, architecture, lectures, photography, politics, history, the beach, the country, the city. Stylish, quick witted, faintly jaded, poised in social settings. Down to earth, not pretentious. An empathetic, kind, nurturing, responsible and honest person with an unfettered spirit of adventure who speaks her mind (but gently) and sees the humor in most things.
Like to cook tasty, healthy dinners with friends, drink some good red wine and talk and laugh into the night, go see some independent or foreign films, take in some interesting art, find some live music, eat in a little ethnic place, go exploring in the city or far away, buy some fresh veggies at the farmer's market or just hang around the house and drink espresso and read the NY Times or the New Yorker or Nat Geo or intriguing articles about science or history or popular culture that I find strewn around the internet.
Enjoy traveling and have been to Europe, Asia, South America and the Carribean and, once there, i can't get enough of exploring, seeking, learning and understanding the culture. But also enjoy relaxing at home, sleeping in, lounging about, talking, communing with a special man.
Enjoy political satire and like the Daily Show, John Oliver and Bill Maher. Watch PBS, HBO, MSNBC, Comedy Central. Like American Masters, POV, Downton Abby. Listen to BBC World News, NPR. Like This American Life, Radio Lab, the Moth. Am a bit of a news junkie and have a keen interest in local, national and international politics and culture.
Like to listen to intense, upbeat music that makes my heart soar: soul, blues, rock. You may find me dancing around the kitchen--please do not photograph and if you do, please do not post on Facebook.
Things I am not into: fast food, intolerance, a lot of middle America, conservatism, fundamentalism, dogmatism, the bible, Fox News, chain restaurants, aluminum siding.
I am looking for a hip, socially aware, emotionally mature guy who has his love of life and love of women intact. A charming, warm-hearted guy with great positive energy for a serious and important relationship.
