Yeah, I'm a teacher, but I'm not averse to tattoos...intelligent yet humble, a major fan of sponge Bob and other literary pundits. Others say that I am open yet sensible, pretty and understanding, with a big heart.
Many would say that I am passionate; some that I am intense. Perhaps I can best explain this by saying that I was most influenced by my 9th grade English teacher who opened my eyes to King Arthur, the Greeks & the Trojan War--you name it!--with her enthusiasm, warmth, and love of words. She was no frumpy school teacher either--she was funky, waved her hands around wildly, and TOTALLY caught my attention. I always hope that I have enthused my students with her same love of the characters who populate books, since they really are the flesh & blood people just like you and I!
I can't live without books, intelligent conversation, tasty wine, fresh outside air (but not the DEAD of winter), and a my awesome ginger-colored dog!
For me a genuine man is a plus. Warmth (no, we're not talking a human space-heater here) and an ability to laugh at himself and at the crazy behavior people sometimes exhibit in the world around us. Oh...and I love a dry, subtle sense of humor that few people can catch. Perhaps most importantly, I'm looking for someone who is relatively grounded and is comfortable with who he is.
