At the same time, I have a dark sense of humor, I HATE the easy joke. (beat, beat, double entendre sex joke, studio audience laughs). If there is a joke in there, I will find it, but if someone else could make it, I will not say it. I actually do improv and sometimes will jump up on an open mic to do stand up. I also act in plays (comedic and dramatic).
I'm looking for honesty and trust. No relationship can stand without the two. I'm excited about meeting new people and seeing where it goes. I'm kind of an old-school romanic at heart. I spent summers with my grandparents as my baby-sitters and was taught about how to be a man and treat a woman by my grandfather.
I want someone who is an equal. I don't want to make all the decisions in a relationship, nor do I want the opposite. Someone who can turn a lame event or a casual stroll with a dog (or two) turn into a laugh riot. A woman who, when she has an idea, can share it, and then we end up at the best solution regardless of who came up with it. My ideal woman is able to speak her mind, is established and knows what she wants. She understands that sometimes work sucks and while a 60 hour week is not the norm, they might pop up once in a while for either of us.
I am a transplant here in Columbus with all of you 'The Ohio State' Alumni, but if you can give a Boilermaker a chance I think game weeks could be a lot of fun even if we are on opposite side of the scoreboard. Plus, a win for your team could mean no dishes for a month, and who wouldn't love that!
Movies: Pretty much standard nerd fare. The latest James Bonds, Iron Mans, etc, but also last year I was completely taken by Moon, A Serious Man, and Up. (I love Pixar)
TV: It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Arrested Development. If you don't get either or both of these shows, there could be issues with our humor. Not that it's a deal breaker or anything. Just saying. :)
Music: I love pretty much everything if it is original. (And some horrible, horrible guilty pleasures) Jay-Z, The Roots, Broken Bells, Michael Franti, Nine Inch Nails, Gorillaz, and Our Lady Peace.
