I make eye contact and listen closely. I crave quality interaction. I'm interested in just about everything, and I love to think about things intensely and thoroughly! and talk about them! (So please don't be one of those people who says, "You think a lot.") I love to laugh and once in a while I even say something kind of funny. I'm fairly comfortable with myself and can handle intense situations pretty well. I've done a few unusual things with my life, like study music in India. I like walking around in nature but I'm not hardcore. I find I'm often out of step with what everyone else is into. I don't like being categorized and I try not to categorize others too much. But I did get bored with digital photography and I'm shooting mostly film these days, which puts me in a certain hipster category, whether I like it or not.
I would like to meet someone smart, kind, and pretty. Yes, I care about looks: I'm a terrible, shallow person. Smart means: you really do think for yourself, and don't just follow a herd. Kind means: you feel sympathy for others and care about their well-being.
