Seeing good live music can keep me giddy for a couple days after the show. I used to live a mile away from a venue that got some really good artists so I would find myself going to shows several times a month.
I'm a bit of a travel junkie and when I say travel I mean traveling and experiencing the culture, not being a tourist/running around from one site to another. I usually have the richest experiences in developing countries, though I definitely appreciate the comfort and beauty of the developed world. Hopefully one day I will be able to say I've touched down on all seven continents. (only one more to go!)
I'm very light hearted and quick to smile if I'm having a conversation. I enjoy making others laugh and doing thoughtful little things for the people in my life. It takes a lot to make me angry, in fact the last time I lost it was over five years ago. I laugh *A LOT* and I appreciate a person who can be funny without being mean. I am comfortable with who I am; I am feminine, without being a "girly girl".
PS-I'm vegetarian, but am not the type to judge someone else for eating meat.
I'm also into mindfulness/meditation, it is something that has had a profound effect on my life so if that weirds you out then we probably aren't going to be a good match.
-listening and asking questions
-appreciating the little things
-enhancing/ruining pictures by making faces in them
-taking care of/helping/nurturing others
-cuddles and kisses
movies-Coen brothers, Wes Anderson, and Taika Waititi flicks, indie stuff, Airplane!, documentaries
shows- Frisky Dingo, Space Ghost Coast to Coast, Arrested Development, Archer, Invisibilia, Radiolab, Snap Judgment, This American Life
music-too much to put here, but here's a smattering: Radiohead, Iron and Wine, Fleet Foxes, My Morning Jacket, Thievery Corporation, Elbow, Beach House, the New Pornographers, Neko Case, Grizzly Bear, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Karl Denson's Tiny Universe, Sigur Ros, Wilco, Spoon, The National, Alt-J, The War on Drugs, music that makes me want to jump around and dance
food-everything except Korean (I lived there for over a year and it just isn't terribly veg friendly)
-here's another nugget: ask an open-ended question/give me (or whoever you're writing to) a reason to respond
-you want to go to My Morning Jacket's "One Big Holiday" festival in Cancun with me in February (seriously)
-you don't feel compelled to have a shirtless picture of yourself on here, it's great that you have a sculpted torso, but that is not on my list of must have's
-you think you might be able to make me laugh, which isn't terribly hard
-you're interested in more than just casual sex
-you're emotionally intelligent/available
