hi! i'd be glad to meet someone with smarts, soul, sense of humor, savvy, a bit of saucy, spontaneity, shiny spats. (kidding, spats optional; i was on an "s" alliteration kick.) he has tons of energy and is intense about his passions, and/but he has or will make time to spend with me. he's interested not in a play-by-play of my day, but rather wants to know what i thought about and what came along that was interesting. he's intrigued by the random, he's sometimes lost in thought, he's always curious, he's very kind. he cares, pays attention, often holds doors, calls if he says he will, finds me irresistibly funny, likes long hair, loves my perfume. he likes theatre, he likes football (well, i guess that's also theatre in its way). he forgives and is flexible, he gets that this life thing is messy, but he aspires to and usually achieves (and expects) pretty high standards. he has emotional bandwidth, he's been around a few times, he's not fussed by small stuff like a broken sink or a missed flight or a raccoon showing up in the living room. he likes animals, he loves sports, he can't live without me. or at least he'd really rather not. i know i'm supposed to say something about who i am, and i think i probably just did.
