I'm looking for a relationship that is long term, but just short of marriage. Monogamy and dedication to one person is very important to me, but marriage feels like such a broken system as it exists today. Its been a while since I've dated since I've been so busy over the last few years, and still am quite busy, but its time that I find someone.
I'd like to find a nice woman that enjoys learning and travelling to new and old places, who also has an appreciation for film that warrants it, and has a creative desire.
While there are certainly things that I find attractive in women, I don't have any particular physical requirements. I know that I'm not compatible with smokers, alcoholics, or drug users, or people that won't treat me as well as I do them. And just because I'm kind of a square doesn't mean that I'm not into alternative type women as well (I do like crazy hair and don't mind tattoos or piercings if you have them).
I'd like to get into other more creative/artistic hobbies as well, and it would be great to meet someone who has ambitions to do new interesting things as well.
I like quite a bit of music. 80's metal was cool and power ballads were the best. I like some hardcore metal but I have a soft spot for pop rock.
