Creative but grounded (read: not crazy).
I am very close to my family and have a wide net of close friends. There's nothing like being surrounded by folks who I count on and have a great time with.
Into: Music has always been a major force my whole life so it would be pretty cool for my mate to have the same passion. From discovering REM and the Smiths in high school to finding out about the latest music today, like Friendly Fires and Phoenix, I still crave it like candy. I also love losing myself in books (good thing, since I'm in publishing), following and discussing politics, enjoying the best that NYC has to offer (after 20 years I still can't imagine living in a better place), and traveling as much as I can. After all if you don't get out of your little bubble sometimes, you will will grow old real fast.
You: Well, who can predict who you'll fall in love with? But here it goes: I am attracted to guys who are passionate about life--job, interests, whatever, as long as he is a thinking and caring person, engaged in the world. I admire confidence, but being pompous and cocky are just not pleasant traits. Humor is key too, because laughter after all, not only makes life better, it also makes you live longer ;) Having a love for music would be icing on the proverbial cake.
