I'm good for an intellectual conversation about spirituality, philosophy, politics, science, or linguistics. I'm also a big fan of board games, particularly German-style resource management ones (Settlers, Dominion, Bohnanza, 7 Wonders, Carcassone) and classic card games like euchre, pinochle, and spades. A friendship can develop over any and all such things, and I am happy to fool around if there's mutual attraction and desire for fun.
When I say I "dislike" cats and dogs, it's nothing personal, but I am allergic to both (cats more than dogs). If the person of my dreams existed, and had cats, I would consider immunotherapy. This is more an FYI than a dealbreaker.
No kids for me, thanks. If you have your own and they don't interfere with date nights, no problem.
