I love to read, mostly I get to read fun things such as text books (currently reading about business accounting, you're jealous I know) and children's books (currently we are reading Human Body: A book with guts, my sons books are far more interesting). When I get to pick what I want to read I go for Vonnegut, Gaiman, Freakanomics, Why do men have nipples, and within the past year I have read the first four books of the Song of Fire and Ice saga so I am only about 20 years behind the curve. (Confession time: I have read the first twilight book. It. Was. Awful.)
Paradoxes and non sequiturs are fun to think about, I think it's a shame that Jersey Shore has been on tv for more than 42 seconds, and I am a shameless information junkie.
Also, I have recently learned I am good at writing an okcupid profile that is "Below Average Annoyance". Just one example of how awesome I am. ^_^
My endless fascination with obscure physical phenomena (non newtonian fluids are amazing)
A good story (happy ending not required)
The ability to be just me (if I couldn't be me I’d be so bored)
Laughter, you have to hear laughter or your soul withers
The ability to learn.
You are someone who is intelligent, and capable of deep conversations. Someone who is emotionally independant and who is able and willing to pursue their own interests (though you get bonus points if you know when the narwhal bacons). Someone I can laugh with, go on crazy adventures with, and who will stay up till odd hours of the night discussing the ridiculous.
I have custody of my son about 85% of the time, so I do not have an over abundance of free time. However, I am more than willing to make the time for someone who is worth it.
TL;DR I won't murder you, I promise.
