I need intellectual conversation, someone who reads the paper and a heart to back it all up. I like another strong personality. I want to laugh, learn, and see new perspectives. I need someone that yearns for that too. I appreciate the peace in headbanging and the thrill of a good engine rev. I need music that speaks to the soul and images that take your breath away. It sounds corny but it'll ring true if you are a more creative type. It is very important for me to give back, even in some karmic sense, because truthfully, I really like people and their amazing stories.
I like both high-minded movies and more base action and comedies. I like the Fast series and Bond. I know they aren't fine works but I enjoy them. I adore the DC FilmFest and go to at least 7 or 8 every year. I like older, more forgotten works too. I'll give most any movie a chance.
My musical tastes are similarly sensation-seeking. I like techno and classic dance music. I enjoy rock and a touch of the top 40 sometimes. I generally listen to three music radio stations, NPR and one XM station. I love music that begs to be played loudly, even if it is gentle and soulful. I prefer big headphones because then I can be immersed in the music. I love music that makes me want to move. I like Tiesto, some Afrojack, Cascade, Morgan Page and those of a similar ilk. I am happy to give new music a fair shake as long as it isn't piddly pop crap, heavy metal, or rap.
As for food, I used to be picky but in the last few years have really opened up about my tastes. I like most international food that isn't too spicy. I am willing to try most foods, especially strange desserts. I like some Cajun (alligator and pain perdue- so good!!) and find the creatures of the sea generally good.

Bonus- courtesy/manners. Everyone ever needs these.
If our percentage enemy is relatively high, it's probably for good reason, as I try to answer very honestly. Maybe avoid potential issues and make a logical conclusion. I don't mean to box anybody in or out but we all have preferences. So with that disclaimer: if you're smart, like to learn new and unusual things, are a liberal, like to banter but don't take it too far and have some confidence in yourself but don't let it eek out all over the place we might do very well together.
I want an equal, a counterbalance. I work with children- I have no interest in dating someone that isn't at least mostly adult (generally, all the best people are in touch with their inner child). I like a lot about who I am at this point in my life and I want someone who accepts me as is. I'm faulted and not afraid to admit it.
Have a sense of courtesy and appreciation. It's respectful. It's necessary. Period.
I'm not looking for anything long distance right now. Thank you though.
Please please please -I've tried to be more gentle about this but really, I am only interested in liberal democrats. There is nothing wrong with other opinions, I just need those particular beliefs to be in line with mine in a relationship.
