Laughter and good conversation are intoxicating. So many of my favorite moments in life have been passionate, hilarious debates about anything and everything. This is perhaps the single most important thing for me about any relationship. I need to talk and listen and learn and teach and share. Always extra points for the absurdly esoteric.
These concepts might sound quaint, but I really value honesty and respect. I admire and appreciate people who can say what they feel. I like to go out just as much as I like to stay in. For me, it's more about the company than the activity.
I have something of a book addiction. As Erasmus said, "If I have a little money, I buy books. If there's any left, I buy food." Maybe not that bad, but I do love to read.
I love old jazz - Louis Armstrong, Ella Fitzgerald, Dizzy Gillespie, Velma Middleton. I also love everything else - classical, reggae, rock, hip hop, world beat, house, latin. Well, maybe not everything - modern country and most top 40 need not apply. With music comes dancing, and I like to shake it - swing, salsa, house, anything.
I work hard and do fine, but I'm definitely not "career-oriented". I enjoy taking life as it comes, and I'm too curious to do one job forever. Definitely a bit of a nerd, but a fairly well-rounded one.
I am bright, funny, and sweet
