I love learning new things, and am fascinated by creative men. In the end, I think I will land in a relationship with someone confident, smart, and good at communicating.
I respect men who are genuinely concerned about the common good, even if we disagree about how to achieve that. Your politics and faith do not have to look just like mine, but I hope you care about politics and living a good life.
Movies: Angels in America (technically a television program), The Hours, Out of Africa, Shortbus, Lost in Translation
Music: public radio, Classic 80's, David Gray, Bronski Beat, 89.3 The Current, Cities 97 Acoustic Sunset, Russian Liturgical (yes, you read that right; no, you have never seen that listed before on this site).
Food: Thai, Eastern European, pork anything, sweet delicious Dairy Queen (not all three simultaneously though)
Television: Downton Abbey is excellent on many levels. Elementary is amusing.

6.1 My bike
6.2 My absolutely incredible wonder-dog Clara who still keeps me amused after 15 years. She is the bestest!
6.3 Exercise, including yoga
6.4 A room with a view (no, not the movie)
6.5 The terrific Masters swimmers who share my lane and listen to my stories
The worst that can happen is you realize instantly what a loathesome, undateable monster I am.
