I 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, host friends for dinner, 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 articles about politics or maybe play around on the internet and find some intriguing bits of information to share.
I absolutely love 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.
I love political satire and like the Daily Show, the Colbert Report and Bill Maher. Watch PBS, HBO, MSNBC, Comedy Central. Like Curb Your Enthusiasm, American Masters, Boardwalk Empire, Downton Abby. Listen to BBC, NPR. Like This American Life, Radio Lab. Am a bit of a news junkie and have a keen interest in local, national and international politics and culture.
I like to listen to intense, upbeat music that makes my heart soar--soul, blues, rock, pop.
Things I am not into: fast food, intolerance, a lot of middle america, conservatism, fundamentalism, dogmatism, the bible, 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 and who perhaps has fond memories of his rebellious youth.
