I'm actually a pretty 'low maintenance' kind of person...I'm happy amusing myself, being one on one with someone or interacting in large groups. I enjoy edgy and stimulating conversation, political debate (without rancor or divisiveness - but I can be pretty persuasive when I'm passionate about my cause!), or just chatting about nothing in particular. For fun I love cooking and entertaining; being with friends; discovering new restaurants; laughing; singing and dancing all alone with the music loud; shopping for non essentials (eg., flowers, coffees, farmers markets); the cultural and art scenes, NPR/PBS, x-words, Californication, Mad Men, Bill Maher, Sox/Pats. Avid reader of all things - including the sports section (not interested in pulp fiction though the movie was great!). Would like to meet a gracious and grounded man - someone comfortably self confident, with a good head on his shoulders, an energy level that can keep pace with mine - a solid guy with an inquisitive mind, a good sense of humor, a positive attitude and a willingness to share himself with the people he cares about.
