my goal is to find someone mentally engaging, ambitious and grounded, and live a boringly normal life punctuated by exotic adventures (travel etc).
(over) analytical, attractive (with hairdo/makeup), employed (grudgingly), well traveled (alone), well educated (largish head), good dancer (bhangra), active (gym), artist (oils/sketch in past), like dogs (no scooper), like walks (+hikes), like complex movies (spy, action, emotion), cook (sparsely), like Big Color shows (Bollywood, Cirque, Reve, Pyramids).
tall (ideally >6'2"), V-shaped profile (toned, masculine), easy-going with people but precisely focused, sophisticated thinker and/or competent athlete, self-controlled but articulate, generously affectionate, patiently tolerant (wide range), kind to those weaker (in any sense), firmly positive outlook.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
pinkberry's or tea/coffee somewhere nice.
then, maybe drinks, dinner or movie.
