I value integrity, intelligence, creativity, kindness, compassion, and fun-making tendencies. Smarty-smarts are a fucking aphrodisiac.
I'm a fantastically extroverted introvert. INFP or INFJ, depending on the day.
I'm pretty active overall --- but make an effort to cultivate the slower, lower-key parts of life. Busy New Yorker, but not into busy for busy's sake, and I love outdoor activities.
I see lots of theater.
TV: Breaking Bad was all it's cracked up to be. Mad Men. And if I had that little mind-zap device from Men In Black, I'd erase my memory just to experience The Wire again for the first time. I watch almost nothing when it's actually "on" but do the Netflix/other streaming thing.
Music: Eclectic. But I do that thing of replaying and replaying and replaying a much-loved track.
Food: Bring it. I skew healthy, but eating and sharing food is one of the great pleasures of life.
Art (in the broadest sense)
Yoga. I'm a certified teacher but mainly teach friends.
People I really trust = gold
Love and touch.
Which path to take. Which path I'm on.
Human behavior. Men. How it's all better when people can get out of their own way.
Stories and words and language.
Happiness and meaning.
If we have tentative or even actual plans to meet, but we've not met, or perhaps even if we have met but aren't yet madly in love: If I win the Hamilton lottery for that night, I'm going to have to reschedule. Forgive me.
You're intelligent, affectionate and irreverent at once. You aren't jaded and are willing to share happy, unguarded moments. You are present and enjoy real time with a fellow human (and can put down the phone, although we're all addicts).
You've stowed your baggage. Stop, I know there's baggage. (No one gets out of their twenties unscathed.) Just stow it. If you're not ready to do that, happy healing but none of us need someone to work out their past relationship issues on us in a new one, right? You're not my ex. I'm not yours.
You think I'm cute. (Or hot. Or, you know, both.)
You want to meet. Witty banter means little sans chemistry, and that means getting face to face. Real-life chemistry PLUS banter -- that's a whole other ballgame.
