First off, I don't have two nickels to rub together. Material interests may be high on society's list of priorities - and yours- but very low on mine. May be seen as a value or a character flaw - both, perhaps. But I accept that it disqualifies me for pretty much all of you otherwise wonderful fish out there. So be it.
I am looking for a soulful woman with a spontaneous streak who believes in live and let live and that life works best when there is "give and take." Intelligent, compassionate, good humoured and genuinely sexual - not sexy like a Britney, Paris Hilton, or Beyonce , she will appreciate that I am much more than my superficial charm, but since I am human, sometimes less. I enjoy and respect women and in no way rank men above women, also I reject all the ugly behaviours that derive from that fundamental evil of gender inequality - from violence against women and children, violence against our mother planet and our fellow creatures, violence against our neighbors, violence against men's authentic softer, "feminine" inner selves. Whoa, off my soapbox. Now for the serious stuff:
I want and need to be free to express my ideas, feelings and desires, and will always give that consideration to you. I love to laugh and find much in everyday life LOL funny. I am somewhat easily moved to tears by a wide range of things - both happy and sad.
My taste in music is somewhat old-fashioned. I can't stand to listen to temporary music radio so I miss lots. Too bad. Two of my favorite singers are Eric Bibb and Keb' Mo', both folk-blues artists. Mark Knopfler formerly of Dire Staits is my favorite guitarist. To my ears his playing tells a story in a very lyrical fashion. Steely Dan, remember them? I like Feist, Sarah Harmer, and Norah Jones, apnd I think Joni Mitchell is the best singer-songwriter on the planet. Crazy about country singer Wynonna. I have records from way back when she sang with her mom. I have been listening to Arcade Fire , Alt-J, and Elbow lately. And I have not mentioned jazz, which I learned to listen to as a child at home. Kind Of Blue resonates with me like nothing else. Except maybe Bach's Goldberg Variations which I have loved since high-school. And much more. Yada, Yada, yada.
I don't watch much TV, but I do have some favs that I pick up on DVD: Six Feet Under, Deadwood, The Riches, Nip-Tuck, Trueblood , etc. I was and am a big fan of Buffy The Vampire Slayer. It was a tremendously intelligent, well thought out and well crafted show dealing with real issues germane to young adults, especially young woman. Also Downtown Abbey, Battlestar Galactica and Breaking Bad. And The Biggest Loser!
Whew, I get tired of talking about myself ;=(
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
Simple is best, so as to facilitate detection of that critical attraction known as chemistry ;=)
