Number-one thing you should know about me is that I’m possibly the world’s biggest music nerd. Some have called my ability to recall extremely detailed and obscure facts about vintage music "encyclopedic." I won't argue, though I prefer the term "godlike." I’m currently writing a book on an obscure topic regarding 50s and early 60s music and British media. I support my writing and other such vices by working in the advertising industry, supervising an editorial department (which helps me scratch my general word-nerd itch: I practically live at the website etymonline--check it out, though it’s not for the faint of heart).
In a woman I value intellect, humor and self-confidence. These qualities may seem self-evidently desirable, but many men actually don't value these things in a woman, though they may say they do. I admire the woman who has some intellectual, spiritual or humorous quality that I don't have and can learn from. She should feel some kinship with at least a few of my enthusiasms, though she should also have her own unique ones that I can admire and support from my own vantage point. I'm looking for kinship and deep understanding, but the ability to laugh at oneself (of the hey I just spilled orange juice all over my new shirt varietal) and to recognize the ultimate absurdities of existence (as Steven Wright said, "I intend to live forever. So far, so good.") is still underrated and perhaps the most important thing of all.
[Begin tooting of horn] I have a precise intellect with a vast range of knowledge about many subjects (great at a dinner party!). I have a razor-sharp but goofy and warm sense of humor (I'll make you laugh when you're down!). I'm somewhat a romantic, believing that chivalry still has its moments (I'll hold the door open for you, and escort you in by the lovely small of your back). I'm sensual, and love to delight in romantic suspense (girls love a great kisser!). I'm masculine but utterly unafraid of my vulnerable side (I can be strong when you need me but I'm also a talker in a relationship!). I'm gentle but also strong (learned to be hardy and stand up to life's pressures but I'm not hardened or overly cynical!( [end tooting]
