The things that are most important to me are my family, my friends, and my work. My family and friends would describe me as easy going, curious, and adventurous. And polite. My parents raised me to be polite - sometimes painfully so, but I like it. And my work would describe me as taking it seriously but not taking myself seriously.
As for what I'm looking for; I like smart people who disagree with me. So I don't necessarily need someone who's into what I'm into or thinks the way I do. I prefer someone who will call me out on my stuff (in a nice way), because I tend to do that for people I care about. I'm comfy in my own skin and I prefer a woman who is as well. And to go with the theme of being comfortable - I want someone I can be myself with, someone who can be themselves with me. I grew up in a home with parents that are happily married - and I have been so lucky to have such amazing friends in my life - I want to be with a person that is my best friend. There are so many ways to say it, but in a nutshell - someone who will eat off of my plate.
Ok, that was kinda all over the place, but that's me - outside of a nutshell.
And since that is a bit esoteric I'll add that - I have a job. I work on films and commercials.
Also, I'm good at being encouraging, bringing out the best in people, and making people feel comfortable (which may be three ways of saying the same thing).
Having fun with everyday things - grocery shopping, laundry, making plans (and following through). Being curious and curiouser. And I am an exceptional Driver.
When not bearded I've been told its my eyes. But, you can tell me otherwise. Also, recently, new people I've met have said that I am "kind" and "comfortable." So there's that.
Food: I love food in general. If I haven't tried it I bet I'll want to. I love going to restaurants and cooking at home.

Laughter (of the belly aching variety)
New things - new people, new places, new foods, new _______ - I think new things lead to growth.
I know this is more than 6 things - but rules are meant to be broken. And I could probably do without most of those things (not the Laughter or New Things though).

I can never tell the time when they show a clock in movies.
And you're a good person, a good communicator, and drama free. You make an effort to get along with my family and friends.
Also - and this is most important of all - you like tacos.
