My ideal date would be warm and light-hearted; curious about the world and hungry to learn new things about it; and comfortable in a wide-variety of settings. It's not too hard to make me laugh, and big bonus points for you generally cheery guys.
I'm sure we will have some interests in common, and I'm hoping you bring some of your world to me, because there is so much more to discover. A few of my favorite things include: James Turrell, James Gurney, Agnes Martin, Mark Rothko, Eric Fischl, Jay De Feo, Sargent, Sorolla, Matisse; Colbert, Dexter, Luther, Orange is the New Black, Breaking Bad, Battlestar Galactica, Prime Suspect, Top of the Lake, Madmen; Burma Super Star, dosas and curries, Peruvian tapas, pizza at Pizetta, my friend Tia's cooking; Istanbul, London, Los Angeles, Berlin, Spain, The Dolomites, Sonoma, all National Parks, hiking, biking and road trips; NY Times, NY Review of Books, New Yorker (sensing a pattern here?); David Mitchell, Kate Atkinson, Mary Roach, Julian Barnes, Sebastian Barry; quirky independent and foreign films, especially the Danes, Woody Allen, Werner Herzog documentaries, Exit Through the Gift Shop, Prometheus, Alien, all the James Bonds; pretty much all forms of music, my IPod has an impossibly ridiculous number of tracks on it, in particular Gillian Welch, Ry Cooder (his forays into world music), Mozart, world music, and pretty much any music featuring sax or mandolin (though together might be kind if interesting...).
