For what it's worth, I have been told by several dates that I look much better in person than in my photos. For example, one woman recently said "You look much better in person than in your photos!"
I enjoy listening to music both recorded and (preferably) live, day trips to small towns, all kinds of outdoor recreation (hiking, kayaking, skiing, cycling), exploring flea markets, festivals, mountains, etc. I love modern art and architecture. There are a lot of fun/educational/entertaining things to do within the region and beyond, but they're much more enjoyable to do with two...
I am a good cook and love good food. I want to cook for you. My chocolate chip cookies are legendary, and once made a teenage boy say something so inappropriate, he was almost banned from my home.
I love to read. Two popular titles of recent years that I thought were just awful: The Tipping Point, and Three Cups of Tea. If you agree, we may be soulmates. If you disagree, that's no biggie either...we still may be soulmates, but I am not likely to be in a book club with you.
Movies: I like them too.
TV: I don't watch very much TV, although I don't fear or hate it. Sopranos, Breaking Bad, The Wire, CNN.

I don't have a long list of requirements, but am hoping to meet just one attractive, active, happy, fun woman with a youthful spirit who is truly laid-back, at least in her personal life. If you are an intense go-getter at work, that's awesome...as long as you can truly relax and have fun when work is done. I would like to meet a woman who can become a good friend. I'm up for any activity, but my match will tend to be into an outdoor festival, or live music, or a gallery/museum, or a hike...although I would happily go along on any outing that was of interest to her. We may get along really well if your friends/family would use any of the following to describe you: youthful, playful, casual, fun, optimistic, happy, relaxed... Not so much if: uptight, stuffy, anxious, depressed, angry...
