Let's start with what matters to you: I'm kind. I'm loyal. I'm great at communication. I'm affectionate. I'm engaged and (hopefully) engaging, interested and (hopefully) interesting. And I'm fully aware of how much more rewarding life can be with the right partner.
Sorry -- I meant "panther." A guy's gotta have the right panther.
And then the broad strokes:
I'm easily delighted. I love making people laugh, and I'm instantly fascinated with anyone who can make me laugh. Conversation is maybe the most important thing to me. If you're someone who can talk intelligently and enthusiastically about anything or everything, you've got my attention. I love smart, interesting people -- clever and witty are even better.
I'm really curious about the world around me and love learning new things (useful, practical, or Trivial Pursuit-random). Lately this has been manifesting as me reaching for the rewind button while listening to NPR (there isn't one, or a fast forward).
I have curator tendencies: growing up tackling and getting bored with every artistic outlet has left me with a passion for admiring and sharing books, music, art, and whatever else with everyone. (You'll have to be okay with me saying "You've gotta see this! It's amazing!" because I'll do it all the time.)
I'm drawn to old things - the more character, the better. My place is full of bizarre antiques and I may be turning into some kind of collector or grandma. I think I want to be a Bond villain, or the bad guy from "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade"... but more poorly dressed and less evil (in that order).
