It's unlikely that I'll be all that interested if you're a "young professional" (what asshole invented this term?) with a great body, but you can't hold a conversation beyond the weather, your "portfolio" and the general condition of the sidewalk. Now I have to back up for a second since I guess I *AM* a "young professional", but it just irks me when I see 23 year-olds making photocopies describing themselves as such. People wear it like some sort of badge of honour. Why?
Also, if you're foreign of just about any nationality (that includes you Americans!) then that's a definite point of attraction for me. If an accent is added into the equation, then I'm yours.
My interest in you is probably pretty independent of your age, with the caveat that I'm typically interested in guys who are older than me (you don't have to remember "the tall ships", I just have a hard time relating to most guys who are my age). If I was forced to put a range on it, it would probably be somewhere around 24 - mid 30s (though this is a guideline, not a rulebook).
I'm an unpretentious person (well, mostly) who likes to read, watch great movies and TV (TV gets a bad rap these days, there's lots of great stuff to watch), and cook. Cook a whole lot.
