In response to POF's suggestions for describing myself:
1. Visual arts are my hobbies, lifeblood and career.
2. Working on getting published more.
3. I'm smart and funny. I'm handy and handsome.
4. I like most kinds of music, mostly folk, folk/rock, reggae, blues/rock, R 'n' B, some jazz, punk rock, ska, fusion, etc, etc., very little classical (I find it aristocratic sounding in many cases).
I'm looking for someone who cares about art and aesthetics in a genuine way (who isn't just following trends), who enjoys the simple things in life, who isn't a drama queen, who is respectful and honours the significant other in their life.
Compatibility is key and part of the alchemy of attraction is laughter.
Deal breakers for me: You don't care about the environment in active ways (examples: you like "quadding" or 4x4'ing, you don't care to recycle or reduce your footprint in any way), you don't have social consciousness, you wear a lot of makeup and perfume full of carcinogens.
I'm original. Are you?
