Sense of humor mandatory... must not hate on the Green Bay Packers (even if they lose). Strong applicants will posses the following traits (humor, get it?): Like/love animals especially cats, horses, and reptiles (lizards and snakes). But not too much. Must be willing to be emergency pest control (I.E. squash the bug for me!) and household services (get me a drink, pick up your stuff). The following traits are strongly desired but not required: intuitive, punctual, well-read, artistic, musically adept, neat, well-groomed, mechanically inclined, financially stable, have a working vehicle (not a motorcycle).
Additionally, things I love to do involve large amounts of travel and physical activity to include the following: swimming, hiking, camping, horse riding, shooting (guns and arrows), martial arts, and walking/jogging. Also lots of creative disciplines: philosophy, art, culture, music, books, poetry, and movies (especially movies).
Finally, things I greatly dislike are narrow-mindedness, bigotry, religious or political flamboyance, machismo, braggarts, one-uppers, and self-pity. I posses none of these traits and would loathe spending time with anyone who does.
