Can you really like someone if they can't make you smile? Humor/wit are important in my relationships with people, in general. My 5 C's include, chemistry, compatibility, confidence, charisma/charm and chivalry. I think it's admirable when he fights for things he's passionate about, especially if there is a risk (of rejection, failure or loss) involved. Making me an improved person and vice versa is key to having a healthy relationship. I find men who could have a conversation with anyone about any topic very attractive.
I'm fortunate enough to have been immersed in 2 cultures, the Greek one and the American one. I'm fluent in Greek and taught at 3 Greek Schools while I was an undergrad. I was made in America with Greek parts, if you will. I spent all my summers in Greece growing up visiting grandparents and relatievs. My parents have been happily married for over 30 years. Our roots are where we come from so being traditional and family-oriented is something I value. Having respect for me, himself and others is fundamental nor will I tolerate anything less. I find "dating" someone initially to be horrible and awkward; I'd much rather hang out with someone and see if there is an attraction and then advance to "dating" and spending romantic, quality time, together. Must practice good personal hygiene, live in my area, have a nice smile and be financially independent. Ideally, I prefer the physically fit, height req. 6'0-6'5 (190-230 lbs, respectively) ages 25-35ish, hair in the right places, who have a healthy body/mind.
If your personality and/or physical appearance doesn't make me nauseus, we may have a chance.
Ps.) "Intrigue" means the opposite of "bore".
