The three stand out qualities for me in a guy are intelligence, humor, and thoughtfulness. It's kind of a bonus if you're cute too. I believe I offer those same qualities.
I'm very passionate about many things such as my work as a teacher and some of my beliefs (veganism, non GMOs).
I love the wit of Bill Maher, Rachel Maddow, and Jon Stewart. Although I'm not a big tv watcher, I do clear the couch for House, The Closer, and Glee (I love all the singing). In my free time, I enjoy outdoor concerts, hikes, documentaries, wine tastings, reading, festivals, and catching up with friends. I love Hitchcock movies: Vertigo, The Birds, North by Northwest....anything with Cary Grant. Classic! The humor and intelligent conversation in the dialogue can't be matched by the films out today.
I'm a big music lover. It's one of my biggest pleasures in life. My new favorite is James Morrison. Bought all of his albums. So Soulful!
I love quotes, sweet lyrics, sarcasm, obnoxious situations (because I can laugh l-o-n-g, long after at the stupidest scenarios and at special times like at a red light. Yes, I'm that person you give a lot of room and maybe a running start to navigate the road.) More special moments: listening to the rain, snow days, music, documentaries,quiet (I like listening to quiet. It's my favorite.) Sleep, red wine, and Scrabble all make me very, very happy. I believe spelling, grammar, a curiosity for knowledge, and friendliness are important qualities. I loathe complacency, gossip, negativity, and a defeatist attitude. You make your own way in life and you have to accept responsibility for where you are. I love to laugh and enjoy being silly. I *usually* don’t see much of a point in reading fiction. I find trivial information fascinating. I believe coincidence is God's way of tugging at our sleeve and getting us to pay attention. Most books I read deal with science and psychology. I've been vegan for a few years now! I know too much to have any excuse not to. I have a million different interests but I am the queen of wasting time and distraction, so they don't get the attention they deserve. I'm a huge flirt and you know I really like you if I give you a hard time.
A whopping 1% of the population and I love this!
