Part nerd, part country boy, part rocker, and a tad metro; always carrying either a laptop, backpack, guitar, or rather expensive man-purse (reusable grocery bag inside).
Pretty darn liberal in my views, but still romanticizing traditional gender roles a bit. More in a open-doors-for-you way than a go-make-me-a-sammich way. Less "women are weak and inferior", more "pick-you-up hugs are better".
Wanting to break out of the checklist undertone of first dates. I think that means meeting people who are also interested in making friends. I just want to relax, laugh, and let physical proximity be that first indication of something more.
Drawn to plain ol' nice girls. Unsung heroines giving up seats for strangers, lacking concern for attention or appearances, quietly pursuing passions. Not running a race, just finding their place. It ain't everything, but it's a damn good start.
