I prefer people who live for work, not vacations. A generalist, I care for many things.
Let's discuss: honesty, fiscal policy, the history of ideas, the structure of a smell and its reproduction, language, math, cognition, consciousness, and this ordered set, [Van Herpen > McQueen > Armani > Chanel > Saab > Versace].
Pause to touch without speaking. The preservation of cadences. On the edges of many modalities, haptics, olfaction, mouthfeel, fingerfall, saltlick, dreamtickle, and sleep.
They could be. For example, if work is of paramount importance.
For work, I enjoy taking on difficult tasks, learning them faster than others, and then designing sustainable systems to ensure the persistence of the organisation as a living entity.
Sometimes I figure a person's structures out, and then they get good massages thereafter.

Food: food is fuel
I'm not really a books, movies, tv, music, or food person, but I've consumed and analysed quite a bit of these. I like physical activity though. Intellectually I do like segmenting people into groups based on their opinions of the sensual genres above.
But since we're here. Your lips. The small of your back. The curve between your scalp and the lobe of your ear. Clits. Brains. Muscles.
I listen to my colleagues' social lives and they are so cute. To be excited by concepts in newly met people is a game I have not played in a while.
Often while I am busy working, I lack the flexibility to forget to notice people's bodies in motion, their sensory nervous systems interacting with their surroundings, their conscious and their involuntary information processes... transforming raw sensations into conscious imagery, semantic representations illiciting statistically common trains of thought, interacting with "four-F" signals richocheting through their minds. I forget to forget that people don't see themselves as wetwired meat, that their understandings of themselves lack low-level precision, and that they are mostly locked into their local cultures and high-level personal relationships.
Perhaps that is why I rarely have much to say to dates. Unless we're discussing people at the level of detail which is natural to a student of people... we might as well skip the talking. Other forms of communication seem more direct.
Thoughts to be continued, perhaps after sleep.
