I like strong independent women who speak their mind and consider themselves free of defined society roles, I'm similiar though perhaps a little less so. Great at suggesting a great place or something to do but always willing to compromise.
I am out going, good natured, and enjoy people
I’ll start with the easiest, food. I enjoy almost everything. Seafood is probably my favorite, steak, pork chops, chicken, etc. (Can you tell my grandfather owned butcher shops). I do have vegetarian friends so I can easily enjoy that as well (also lived in Pakistan and love curries). Oriental cooking (Japanese or Thai style) is perhaps my favorite.
As far as music, my side of the family listens and my cousins are musicians. I also have a number of musician friends and anything goes if it’s live and the crowd is responding. When listening at home I like almost anything that has any the following: attitude, good rhythm, and great performances and dynamics. I enjoy (I’m sure I’ll miss a few and only somewhat in order) classical, jazz, rock and roll, some rhythm and blues, world music and Latin music (got to love to dance).
Books I’m finding even harder to list.
I tend to read what is relevant to me now whether it’s technical, sociology or fiction. I enjoy fiction or murder mysteries most when they include relevant culture or history.
I don’t read much fantasy, but do like science fiction that combines philosophy.
People especially those I love, access to music, art, books and hobbies I enjoy. And of course when alone the intimacy of another.
That's 6 though I could include more.
