Here is where I am at:
Laughter - I never stop making jokes, from the sublime to the ridiculous. I abhor political correctness and refuse to be anything but myself. We will either be crying from laughter or on completely different planets.
Ambitious - I am a busy person. I don't waste time and I am direct. I am artsy as can be but I am a man, not some nimble bearded PDX lout with a trust fund. I own my own house, business, and a decent car plus I am emotionally open and clean. I believe there are 19 of us in PDX.
Music - If you don't have impeccable musical tastes then move on. I am a walking encyclopedia and will constantly throw stories about music. I relate it to everything I witness. This can come in handy as you probably won't have to hit your shazam app very often. If music could fit on a bagel I would weigh 750 pounds. That is a lot of ****ing musical hummus.
Knowing Thyself - I have already gone deeply through it with people, including many women in relationships. I may be somewhat jaded, but I also know what I want and I am willing to fight for it. I don't drink anymore so my lie detector is now almost as good as my gaydar.
Diversity of Experience - I have lived all over and have lived among nearly every conceivable type of person. My favorite women are tall, thin, well traveled, and at least quasi exotic in style.
Intelligence - I have a degree and read obsessively. I own hundreds of books. I really appreciate people that are educated but that have some street sense. There is nothing hotter than a gangster with a Phd.
