I'm not from the Kansas City area and I'll just be living here a few months. I grew up outside of Chicago, then I lived in Portland for awhile and just recently finished teaching English in Taiwan for a few years.
Edit: I have been getting a lot of responses, so I want to make some things clear. There are a few parameters which I am firm about:
* Must be college educated or on-track to finish undergraduate in the next few years.
*Healthy lifestyle, no smokers, alcoholics or drug users
Ideally, I'd like to meet someone with these criteria
* Spent significant time (6 months+) outside of the United States
* Attractive, but not too attractive
* Type B personality
* Good person/morals and comes from a traditional family
My favorite books include: Crime and Punishment, Hamlet, Cryptonomicon and Shogun. My favorite movie is Gattaca. I also like the Star Trek movies, and most science fiction including Children of Men, 2001. Other movies that I like are comedies like: Captain Ron, Dumb and Dumber, Harold and Kumar, Waiting and Office Space. I like some scary movies, but usually the ones that make you think, stuff like I am Legend or 28 Days Later.
Also I am a big fan of the following shows: Breaking Bad, Downton Abbey, Mad Men and Game of Thrones.
I like a lot of mainstream music like Foo Fighters, U2, Green Day and Coldplay, but here are some of my favorite obscure bands:
Band of Horses, Dawes, Deep Sea Arcade, Weakerthans, Old 97s, Replacements, Harriet, Fountains of Wayne and Wilco
