First, a clarification about the tag line: they're Radiohead lyrics and there can be truth to them in some situations -especially when in love with someone. I think they are brilliant lyrics - funny, profound, controversial, simple and unlikely. And to be clear, I want to be the closest of friends with the woman I spend my life beside.
I'm kind and I'm honest. I've got a good sense of my strengths and weaknesses. I like to know where people are really at and for people to know where I'm at. I like to be available to the pleasure in every moment, good or bad, and I have a low tolerance for doing things I don't want to do or being places I don't want to be (otherwise I'm no fun to be around). I like intellectual discussions and explorations but even more I like to stand on the earth and have an experience. I'm bored by people that are "nice" and have little patience for controlling people. I've got plenty of illusions like we all do, but I tend to gravitate toward good honest and open people.
I've got the greatest friends and family in the world (I know a lot of people say that but mine really are). I grew up in Rhode Island where for my first year of school, I carried a Bee Gee's lunch box. At the time I was ashamed but in hindsight I had the coolest one. I lived in Barcelona for a year of high school and in Holland for the year after college.
For fun (among other things): eating out, movies, weekend car trips, basketball, jogging, boxing, dinner parties (I'm not a great cook, but I do make crepes), live music, meditation, a mellow night at home, art museums, brunch, driving, exploring,...??
What I'm looking for: someone kind, genuine, honest, and elegant. Someone who likes who they are and wants to be in relationship beyond some kind of measurable give and take. A good sense of humor. Maybe some good massaging skills. Someone not looking to be saved (or at least not too intensely). Someone who isn't formal or stiff. Someone who celebrates all sides of herself - dark, light, strong, weak. Someone playful and true. Someone who doesn't make a point of telling other people that they don't have a television (isn't that annoying? By the way, I love Dexter, and I like Mad Men, Breaking Bad, the Wire...). Someone who can hold joy and devastation in the same breath.
