OK, now I don't even really care if you're male, as long as you can *think.* Especially about race - they are marching through our town with torches, for crying out loud.
All I will want to talk about is current events. I prefer a long-distance relationship. Also prefer foreigners, or Americans who've spent long periods of time overseas not on American bases.
In the short run, don't talk to me about appearances - really, don't. If you compliment my looks when you don't know me yet, I will conclude that you are shallow. Let's discuss actual issues. Also, I have no faith, and do not respect it. I prefer rational conclusions.
In the long run, looking for someone who enjoys board games, card games, games where you move little things around depending on dice throws, scavenger hunts, bocce - things where you spend time together doing something fun that isn't exercise, I guess. Frisbee, but not Ultimate. We can also have a few drinks at the same time. And eat good food in small portions, many of them, over many hours and many venues. Mostly with other people as well.
And if you can play Mah-Jongg (game of 4 winds, the REAL game), whether American, Chinese or Japanese (which is my way), let me know.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
Start with drinks, likely with friends of yours or mine, and talk about the state of the world; if we like the argument go somewhere for dinner, if we like that discussion go somewhere else to argue over dessert...
