Many of us seek the same basic traits -- intelligent, successful, stable, honest, nice. In fact, I have yet to see the profile seeking a dishonest, unstable, mean, stupid, failure. (If you see this profile, please do let me know). So I'll skip these traits and instead focus on the descriptions that I think would make you uniquely attractive to me.
I am a strong man and I like strong women -- very much. I am looking for a woman who shares some of the same traits that describe me -- empathic, funny, self-aware, sexy, and confident. You have a touch of sass, strut, edge, and/or "bad girl" in your personality; and you are less inhibited in your humor and emotional expression than many people. You are a positive person but your darker side or less "nice" emotions do not appall or scare you.
I fully expect you to have human imperfections and vulnerabilities. In fact, I look forward to them.
You are at least somewhat active and well-read, you stay in shape, and are looking for a serious, perhaps life-long relationship.
In my life, I have tended to be a leader but one who is democratic and caring about others (although I have no problem asserting myself and taking on a challenge or conflict). In romance, I want a co-leader, an equal partner. If you answered the OK Cupid question, "Should men be the head of the household" with "yes," we are not a match
I am a verbal guy. I like to talk about a myriad of things -- current events, films, books, anecdotes about friends, family and co-workers -- and pepper the conversation with humor (sometimes witty, sometimes outrageous) and playfulness. I am a happy person.
At other times, I want to "do" versus talk, to see a film, a play, improv, art, to dance, throw a party, go bowling, take a walk, dine out, cook together. And I do so with a sense of enthusiasm, interest, fun, and pleasure.
Professionally, I am a child and family therapist. I love what I do.
I am politically active and involved. These days, however, a lot of that occurs by signing a crapload of online petitions.
I like films, books, art, and music (but more to dance or drive to than to sit and listen to).
I love doing the hardest crosswords I can get my hands on.
I work out, dance, and golf. I play guitar and piano. (I used to be in rock bands -- I sang and wrote songs).
I am seeking a long-term relationship.
Idle random question: why doesn't my autocorrect recognize dirty words? Don't you think it ought to?
