I've never tried one of these sites before, but I've had a couple people suggest it as an option, so I thought I'd check it out. I enjoy meeting new people, and am very open-minded. In terms of who I'm looking for, I don't have a specific "type" -- let's be honest, physical attraction is important, but it's not all there is: I'm looking for someone with a good sense of humour who can hold a conversation.
I suppose I should explain some of my interests further, since broad terms like "reading" or "music" don't really explain much. Aside from teaching, I read and write for a living, though I also enjoy them as leisure activities. I tend to read "literary" fiction, as well as non-fiction (mostly science and history); I try to do some creative writing when I have the time. When it comes to music, I'm fairly open-minded, and have a broad range of tastes, from classical to indie to (some) Top 40. I also play the piano (as well as the cello, though recently I haven't been playing it too regularly). I like to cook and try new things out in the kitchen.
I am interested in having kids at some point, but maybe let's get together for coffee and get to know each other first.
