I've been trying to think about what crowd I could say I fit in...the closest thing would probably be those nouveau-hippies who value environmentalism, enjoy dancing to music in a big field and like DIY projects, but I don't want to scare away anyone who's unfamiliar with the granola. I don't think I fully subscribe to any subculture, but I love checking them out!
Other things...I like to make jokes once I get comfortable with a person (usually of the dirty, subversive or clever variety; not a huge fan of punny humor) and it would be awesome if we could riff off of each other. I also like geeking out on movies and actors. Having an interest in human behavior, introspection, etc. might be a pretty important prerequisite since I go to that place in conversation a lot. I don't have a mind for national/foreign policy and politics so those topics don't rank high on my conversation preferences outside of their relevance to social justice and/or my local community. Love experiential learning though, and "adventures" (large or small, mostly of a wooded or multicultural kind) are an important element of my free time. I can be bawdy - cursing and what have you - so if you're reserved we might not match well. Not that I like to embarrass myself in public or anything. : )
Non-materialism, health/fitness, environmentalism and civic-mindedness are values we'd probably have to share, lifestyle-wise. I'm also hoping for warmth, emotional intelligence, extroverted introversion, openness, levity, depth, feistiness, passion and something that makes you a little nerdy or quirky. Lastly, I really admire people who can enter into conflict and/or express grievances tactfully and without having to hint at it.
Thanks for getting through all of that if you did. I'm open to just meeting new people in the area too so feel free to contact me if you want to go on an adventure!
P.S. Feel like I should warn people: I have a big thing for proper grammar and punctuation. If its influence on initial match-judging were represented in a pie chart, it would take up about 20% of that pie chart. S'all I'm saying.
