You must be interested in carrying on meaningful conversations about politics and current events. Sorry, but if you're a conservative, please move along.
I am not against dating someone with children, but please have time for something else in your life. We don't need to spend every waking, non-working moment together, but I also don't want to be fighting a battle for your attention.
It wouldn't hurt if you were a geek girl. I'm a tremendous tech geek and it would be nice to share my love of technology with a like minded woman.
I know this is a tall order, but if you give me a chance, I think you'll be pleasantly surprised.
I tend to enjoy comedies and historical dramas. Pretty much any comedy will do, as long as it's well done. My favorite historical movie is The Patriot.
I have a diverse taste in music ranging from alternative/punk to classic rock and classical. The only music that I really don't like is Country/Western. My favorite bands are Stellastarr*, The Police, Death Cab for Cutie, The Dropkick Murphys, and The Doors.
I like most all types of food, but my favorites are Italian and Chinese. I'm a pretty good cook and can whip up a mean lasagna or Chili.
