I like science fiction but I'm not a geek. I'm into gadgets and technology and I prefer thrillers and action movies to chick flicks so you can see I'm not really a girly girl. With that said, I do sometime go for the tearjerker movies and I'm a romantic at heart.
I like to watch sports in person or on TV. I'm not as physically fit as I'd like to be but I'm working on it. Football is my favorite sport. I enjoy sports bars but I'm not big on nightclubs. I love to read - mostly American history or science fiction but I like a wide variety of subjects. I love the mountains but the beach at sunrise or sunset is a close second. I like traveling to new places and learning about them. I'm looking for a friend to share those experiences with and maybe a relationship will develop later.
I'm traditional in some ways but I'm very independent and I'm used to taking care of myself. I don't care to categorize myself politically but most people would probably call me a liberal (even though I'm probably more of a moderate). That's okay because contrary to what you may have heard, "liberal" is not a dirty word no matter how badly my fellow Southerners try to turn it into one. ;-) I think extreme views are dangerous no matter what end of the spectrum they fall on. Everything is a situation.
I joined Okcupid because a male friend suggested it. He has actually recommended it to me several times and I finally took his advice because I was recently reminded of how great it is to spend a day with people who share my common interests and sensibilities - an increasingly rare thing for me. Since he has met several people here and always has a good experience, I decided to give it a try too.
Music: Prince is my favorite artist. The older I get, the older the music I like: classic R&B, classic rock, classic pop (Is that an oxymoron? I mean pop from the 60s-90s)
Movies: I like action/adventures, thrillers and some drama but I'm not into typical chick flicks. Some of my favorites are: The Lord of the Rings Trilogy, Pulp Fiction, A League of Their Own, Fight Club, Apollo 13, Bound, Mr. and Mrs. Smith, The Matrix, The Color Purple, The Shawshank Redemption, Oceans 11
