I appreciate women who are strong, have a unique personality, and can lead me to things I haven't experienced. I'm not interested in meeting everyone out there. I'm interested in meeting women who make me laugh, think, and question what I think I know. I value strong personality above all else and I think intelligent conversation is the cornerstone to any great relationship.
I moved to Cambridge from NYC earlier this year and have much to explore and looking forward to meeting new people. The doubling of apartment square footage was the first great thing that happened but I hope there are many non area-related benefits as well.
(I got a note from OKCupid that I was a few words short of 1000 words in my profile and decided to use the threshold-breaking words above despite their incredible ridiculousness. I think I get an OKCupid coaster now.)
September 22nd update: This is definitely the most frequently commented on piece of my profile. I think this is very interesting for a number of reasons, particularly the attacks on the possible misusage of the term re-creation. I have enjoyed the strange perpetuation of something with absolutely no basis in truth. Cheers internet.
Movies are nice. I gravitate towards documentaries but I will watch any movie but I can't promise I will be awake at the end. (September 22nd update: I purchased Teen Wolf on Blu-ray. I can't really justify this other than the fact that Styles' peer pressuring really comes alive in that format.)
Food is great. I enjoy it very much. I like to eat Vietnamese, Indian, Thai, and Mexican particularly. I will show up on time for a steak also.
Music can't be beat. Indie rock has always been my favorite but my latest bent has been Waits and Bonnie "Prince" Billy (May 5th update: add Solid Gold, Yuck, and a reborn interest in Samuel and Hoover)(September 22nd update: Thanks to the magic of Amazon mp3 downloads I can rediscover the pleasures of Jesus Lizard, Eno's Music For Airports, and The Highwaymen without the hassle of record store clerks looking at me like a maniac.). My favorite live bands all-time are Murder City Devils, Les Savy Fav, and Afghan Whigs. And Low (May 5th update: I had tickets to Prince at Madison Square Garden in January, didn't go, and now wonder what was so important in my life that I couldn't go see Prince, I have no answer for this)(September 22nd update: I actually do have an answer for this but it is a long and convoluted story). I'd rather not box myself in on this one so I will just say my favorite music is probably not played on drive time radio (May 5th update: unless they play Liz Phair on your drive time station)((May 5th EXTRA update: off the first two albums of course)).
sleeping in at least occasionally
conversations that break down into discussions about the origin of the conversation
conception (mine, particularly)
no sixth thing because if I can't do without seven or twelve or forty-two I will just stick at five
