(side note: if you don't get the shrubbery reference, leave now)
I'm not originally from Oklahoma, or really anywhere (federal government brat). I also don't agree with most of the typical Oklahoma views on things, nor am I country or redneck. Accept and embrace it. If you're ultraconservative, particularly if you think homosexuality is a sin and gays should burn, we won't get along.
Also, cooking, kayaking, hiking, and learning.

My favorite music.
A toothbrush and toothpaste. I hate morning breath.
Learning. Just because I'm burnt out on the classroom setting doesn't mean I am sick of acquiring knowledge.
Travel. I've visited Atlanta, Charlotte, NYC, and New Mexico in the last few years. The British Isles and/or France may be the next major non-family-oriented trip up next, I'm undecided.
In case of zombies, my weapons.
Also, I love geeks and nerds. Intelligence is a huge turn on for me. Yes, I'm sapiosexual.
You're intelligent and can hold your own in conversation. At the very least you should be able to form complete sentences and u dnt tlk lyk dis, 4 sho. If I have to spend time deciphering a message it's more likely that I'll delete it instead of putting out the effort. Or to use the Venn diagram analogy, it would be Women Who Are Intelligent and Women I Want to Date.
You're accepting of homosexuality and don't believe it's a sin. You believe everyone should have the right to be happy and themselves. My tolerance for homophobia/LGBT discrimination is about as close to zero as you can get; the only reason it even registers is societal norms won't allow me to react the way I'd like to when I am confronted with it.
You're ready for the zombie apocalypse. The dead will rise! Go pick up the Zombie Survival Guide.
Also, do not message me if you have no intention of meeting up. Life is short, time is precious, and I have little patience for being lead on and then canceled on at the last minute. If you change your mind after making plans, be an adult and say so instead of dragging it out. That'll go over so much better with anyone, not just me.
