Candlelight dinners are NOT required, but extra points if you don't mind them once in a while.
I'm a New Yorker, born and raised. Catholic. Conservative with traditional values, though libertarian attitudes (I believe what I believe, and you treat me the same way). Bookworm.
I'm a nerd who writes stuff. I'm okay with staying in and reading books together, or going out to the movies. I'm relatively open to trying almost anything once.
If I haven't scared you off yet, let's continue.
I market myself as the anti-Dan Brown... basically, if Dan Brown knew anything about writing, history or theology.
I also have a job writing for the news website The American Journal. They like ranting and raving-esque editorials, so I just unleash my inner Nostalgia Critic and go to town.
Currently, it's Krav Maga, the self defense system of the Israeli military. No, I'm not Jewish, it's just the best system I've found. Capoeira is pretty, but I'm as gymnastic as your average brick, so, no.
Most likely, it's the book I'm reading.
B) Does it have Cary Grant? I've watched it at least once. Based on a book (Die Hard, Patriot Games, Lord of the Rings)? I might own it. Hitchcock? Got it. Star Wars? Lord of the Rings? Got 'em. We could be here a while.
C) Music: All over the place. Classical, Nightwish, Cruxshadows, Dragonforce, most of John Williams' soundtracks, et al. My masters thesis was on Irish Rebel songs and history, so there's a list right there.
D) TV..... I miss 24, Burn Noticed, CSI: NY and Babylon 5. I currently watch NCIS, Castle, Mentalist, Joss Whedon products, Revenge, Criminal Minds, Hawaii 5-0, Royal Pains, White Collar; Dr. Who. And Arrow. Because everyone watches Arrow.
Aside from that? My dating resume is filled with the bat-guano insane. I could write a book on it.
