A. I love to read, both fiction and non-fiction. I believe whole-heartedly in what John Waters once said -- "If you go home with somebody, and they don't have books, don't [expletive] 'em!” (Match doesn't like curse words)
B. I enjoy cooking and especially for others.
C. I'm a reporter, so that means I ask a lot of questions, and that I can tell a bullshitter from a mile away. Don't lie to me, or any reporter for that matter. It will never end well for you.
D. I've been told I can be intimidating. This is probably true, but how intimidating can a 5' woman really be? (That was a rhetorical question, to which you don't really want an answer.)
E. I love making lists....
F. ...And then I lose them.
My ideal "Ryan Gosling":
A. He's smart, in his own way. This probably means that he can calculate the tip in a fraction of the time that I can.
B. He's interested in what I do and what I have to say. Genuinely interested. I can tell a faker from mile away too.
C. He constantly makes me laugh, but he knows when to take things seriously as well.
D. He actually will look nothing like Ryan Gosling, but that's okay.
