I like people that are genuinely themselves, embrace their quirks, are open-minded/adventurous (aka would not be upset by reading a Dan Savage column), quick to laugh, good-hearted, affectionate and have things they love sharing with others (though hopefully not needles).
Also, treating others with respect is hugely important to me, and I value others possessing that idealism. Basically, don't be a dick to other people.
I'm an outgoing introvert with sort of an odd sense of humor (e.g., The Room is one of the funniest things I've ever watched and I love Cards Against Humanity, but laffy taffy jokes still get me every time), previously lived in Minneapolis and Portland, have both nerdy and sporty interests along with no shortage of hobbies and career ideas.
I might also still have and play Mario Kart, though not with me in Irvine =(
Very non-judgmental and love chatting about anything. Space, sex, relationships, how people interact, etc. In other words, I once listened to a Neil DeGrasse Tyson podcast where he interviewed Dan Savage and though it was about the best thing ever.
Dating wise, I have a preference to focus on one person rather than than juggle multiple people even if it's something casual (though do not have that expectation of the person I am dating) and value strong communication and dependability. The probably sounds more serious than I am intending, but dating is much more positive and fun when there's respect and honest, open expectations =).
Food: Love mostly everything, but especially breakfast foods, Indian, sweet potatoes, tacos, breakfast tacos, BBQ, cereal
Random other things: Playing guitar, photography, hiking (especially when I lived in Oregon), camping, road trips, flea markets filled with weird stuff and video games (the classics, rock band, mario kart, etc.)
Music: An odd blend...Trampled By Turtles, Avett Brothers, Jose Gonzalez, Blackalicious, Talib Kweli, Common, Pete Rock and CL Smooth, Public Enemy, Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, Tears for Fears, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, C2C, Metallica, Agalloch and Iron Maiden among others.
