I find confidence sexy. Intelligence too. I would like to find someone grounded and with a "good head on her shoulders" but would also like someone willing to try new things. Physical attraction is still important but there are a lot of little things that I find sexy. This is one place where confidence comes in. I would like someone supportive in return as I am a very supportive person. Independence is also attractive in some ways too.
I am allergic to cats, but I do like dogs, so I don't want to waste your time if you can't live without your cat(s). I don't have a dog currently, but once the backyard is fenced in, I am seriously considering getting one.
Normally, I can be shy at first but that usually means I'm interested. This may differ when meeting someone (from) online, as I've never done this before. Get me on the right topic though and I will be hard to shut up. I do understand the term of chemistry, and not in a scientific sense (although I understand that too!) I have nothing wrong with "comfortable silences". I've been told that sometimes I beat to a "different drummer" and I am sometimes proud of that. I think it takes all kinds to inhabit the world. However some might say I'm quite normal. I like staying at home with a good dinner (I can cook, but would like someone to cook with rather than for) and any form of home entertainment (movie, tv, games) but it's also nice to go out as well, patios, movies, dining, clubs, etc. I'm not the camping type, but a cabin wouldn't be out of reach (no I don't have one, just saying).
I have great interests in the arts, specifically performance arts, which include film. I'm drawn to science fiction/fantasy but can enjoy anything from a silly comedy to a chick flick as well. I love basketball and soccer, and still like baseball but what I think would be most fun is sharing your passion for something. Influence me. Even trying a new restaurant can be a great thing.
Although I call myself Catholic and Christian, I would not push something like that on you unless you were interested, just please don't push Atheism on me. At this point in my life I believe its more of a personal spiritual thing, and I highly doubt I would change my mind.
Movies: so many to mention, from Lord of the Rings to Magnolia to Glengarry Glen Ross, any Tarantino, also any Redford directed. Red Rock West, to Fifth Element, to The Game.
Shows:Lost, BSG, Big Bang Theory, Game of Thrones, Sense 8, Daredevil, Stranger Things
Music: I used to DJ so I really like a lot of music. I tend to lean towards R&B, pop, dance, house, dubstep, but really appreciate rock classics, and even classical.
Food: so many different and unique tastes and combinations. For example: a good steak, mushrooms, arugula, fish, tiramisu, wine, sashimi, a good Pad Thai, Asian, Italian, French, Canadian, Spanish, and the list goes on
Good food, which nourishes the soul as well as the body.
The arts, (theatre, music, visual) to expand the mind.
Nowadays, the internet, although any form of information will enrich the mind.
I personally need some faith. The spirit has needs, even if that need is to be an atheist (which I'm not). Call it morality if you will.
