The guy I'm looking for would look good in jeans or a suit, but probably be found wearing jeans most of the time. He likes animals and kids, but might not have either. He likes sitting at home on the couch watching movies just as much as going out on the town until the wee hours of the morning, though he's found on the couch more often than not. He can be into sports - doing or watching - I'll be supportive, especially if it's basketball. He's affectionate - in private AND in public (holding hands, kisses). He's a basic good guy though he might look like a bad guy. He's loyal, faithful and dependable (and NO, those do not come together to mean "boring"!!). He's willing to take chances (skydiving anyone?), try new things (yoga, dance class, exotic food), open his mind (politics, religion) and he would NEVER say, "I'm too old for that." He knows how to have a conversation and has something to say other than to tell me that I have great smile, eyes, breasts, whatever.
I am boisterous, gregarious, and talkative. Consider that a warning. If you like the shy, quiet, easily-controlled girls, then move along because that is definitely not me.
Jean-Claude Van Damme movies! I love him! Please don't tell me that he can't act - I don't care! I love him! (And actually, he did eventually learn to act!). I like action movies, rom-coms (hey, I'm a girl!), comedies (but usually not stupid boy humor like Jackass, Dunb & Dumber although a guy did introduce me to The Hangover and I LOVED IT!), super hero/comic movies (Thor, Iron Man, Superman, etc.) and movies that make you think (District 9, Saw - if you don't get how these two movies might make someone "think," then perhaps we aren't a good match).
I love all music, but I must admit that I am truly a pop fan! Britney, Lady Gaga, Madonna, Cher, Adam Lambert - just a few to scare you! And there is nothing like 80's hits - Culture Club was my fave! Also, love Stevie Ray Vaughn and Jonny Lang. Love Josh Groban (new and old styles). I am very into Indian music ("indian" as in India). These are just some of my faves. I can enjoy almost anything from Eminem to Beethoven to Tom Waites.
2) for you the most important thing about a girl is NOT the size of her ass or the size of her breasts (I am a big-size girl who is smart, funny and confident. I will NOT tolerate a man who is constantly telling me that I'm not good enough, but I could be if only I was thinner.)
3) you don't believe in double-standards - of any kind, under any circumstances, for any reason (I believe in equal pay for equal work; what's good for the goose is good for the gander)
4) you know how to kiss - without licking me like a dog or sucking my whole face into your mouth (a good kisser is harder to find than a good man!) (Update: I can't stress this one enough! Seriously, kissing is a lost art.)
5) you know how to have fun and you are up for anything (I once drove 4 hours on a whim just to have dinner at a restuarant I really like; I moved halfway across the country without knowing anyone here. I'm not crazy or a daredevil, but if I suddenly decide to do something, I do it . . . and if you are my man I don't want to hear you say, "Go ahead - I'll watch." You need to be willing to do it with me.)
