I'm looking for a grounded, socially responsible partner who can understand my balance of Deep Thoughts and craptastic reality tv watching habits. Since I have a pretty sarcastic sense of humour, my partner should have a great sense of humour and be able to give as good as they get.
Movies (and this is not an inclusive list): Seven, Pulp Fiction, American Beauty, The Shawshank Redemption, Mulan, Ocean's Eleven (the remake), any movie with Mae West, X-Men and X-2 (but NOT X-3), Evita, Office Space, Elizabethtown, Snakes on a Plane.
Music: I enjoy most genres of music. My current music collection includes everything from Christian to Eminem, and Garth Brooks to Tupac. I also like classical, Broadway showtunes, pop, and contemporary adult music. My all-time favourite, though, is Michael Jackson. If you don't/didn't like him or if you have negative feelings about him, just stop reading now.
Food: I love food. I especially enjoy Mexican (I eat at El Rey for lunch way too much), Indian (I love the buffet at Minar Palace), Ethiopian (I go to Kaffa's Crossing for their veggie combo pretty often), and sushi (for my money, you can't beat AKI). And tacos. I could eat tacos almost every day.
Television shows I like: Person of Interest, SVU, Covert Affairs, Chicago Fire, Chicago PD, The Good Wife, The Voice, Project Runway, Survivor, Big Brother, Top Chef, Scandal, Parenthood, Shark Tank. (I'm as big of a couch potato as this makes it seem; I promise!)
Shows I've loved that I'm now mourning (to give you a broader view of my tastes): Friday Night Lights, FlashForward, Lie to Me, Joan of Arcadia, Sports Night, Friends, Awake, Harry's Law, How I Met Your Mother, The Mentalist.
Sports (I love football, ice hockey, tennis, baseball, NASCAR, and my co-worker is teaching me about basketball)
How I can be a more compassionate person. Why others aren't more compassionate.
How I managed to become such a bleeding heart liberal when I was raised as a Southern Baptist in the Bible belt.
You're interested in stimulating and sometimes sarcastic but witty conversation.
You can hang with someone who spends time thinking deep thoughts but then vegs out by watching some craptastic television (we all need some balance in our lives, right?).
You want to be with a woman who wants a partner who respects her -- respects her intelligence, respects her time, respects her body (although this doesn't mean I don't know how to have fun).
You are looking for a meaningful relationship and you understand that just because I don't want casual sex doesn't mean I want a proposal by the fifth date.
You understand that just because I'm bisexual you aren't scoring a threesome.
You won't feel the need to comment on how short I am when we meet in person. Think about it - would you tell an overweight person "Holy shit - you really ARE fat!!!" when you first laid eyes on them?
Bonus points if you have a FL profile (extra bonus if you know what an FL profile is without looking it up or asking!).
