Interests in life: Singing, acting, writing, playing music (drums, guitar, bass guitar), teaching, cooking, audio production, designing and repairing electronic devices.
Interests in a relationship: Cuddling, holding hands, hugs, kisses, any other form of affection. Love before lust. Honesty. Compassion. Common interests a plus, but not required. Ability to carry on an intelligent conversation.
Turn-offs: Bars/clubs and those whose social life revolves around them. Cookie-cutter "normal" bandwagon riders. Bigotry in any form. Kids or the desire to have them. Here's the obligatory shallow part of my profile: obesity is a dealbreaker for me when it comes to dating (nothing personal, just the way I'm wired), but should not prevent you from contacting me in pursuit of friendship. I don't care what my friends look like.
You: Unique, different, an outcast, or perfectly imperfect in some other way. Equally open-minded and free-thinking. Equally loving and affectionate. Attractiveness is a plus, but is secondary to an emotional connection. I do NOT have a racial preference.
