I was born a hopeless romantic(thanks a lot 80's coming of age movies), but life experience has shown me that Romance needs at least one foot in reality. On the flipside, I think living life without nurturing dreams and promoting a better world is a empty way to live.
I love women who are smart, nuanced, sincere, compassionate, a little nerdy and free thinking. (what more could you ask for?maybe available :) )
