I am optimiste, grundehrlich, and absurde, and I like conversation and intimacy and being alone and chatting superficially and introspection and sharing perspectives and learning about another person superficially, deeply, concretely, abstractly, emotionally, and intellectually...and humorously (pun intended). I'm a romantic pragmatist, not particularly ambitious (I was when I was young, but stepped off the fast track to enjoy life more fully) but serious about love and friendship and my work.
I'm an extrovert by day, an introvert after work (defying librarian stereotypes! Yes, I'm a librarian, with a pony tail instead of a bun), extremely open both in a superficial chat and in a deep conversation. Love to listen, love to talk. A seven hour conversation is pretty much the very best thing I can think of doing, but I also love a 2 minute superficial chat when I'm in extrovert mode, and also love the day-long conversation that takes place in bits of talking, bits of silence, doing something, eating something, walking, doing some housework together, sharing affection here and there, etc. etc. as the day winds its way around me and a friend.
Also LOVE to see movies and talk about them, as well as talk about books and ideas and emotions and art. A walk through a museum or some time with a book club or a sauntering chocolate-buying visit to my favorite purveyors of good chocolate in SF or a walk around the farmer's market is a good time for me.
