Someone who cares about at least some of the things I do, or who will try to understand that these things are deeply felt, and respects that. I don't especially want to spend alot of precious quiet time talking about politics, so you need to be a little mellow, too. Smart, sweet, nice looking, polite and fun to be around, these are the same things I imagine you would be looking for in a date, as well. I'd like you to be close to my age, so we can enjoy the same music, the same movies, the same memories... remember J.P. Patches? Pink Floyd? Boeing?
Perhaps most of all, it is important for me to say that I am hoping for a happy, satisfying, long term friendship (and more, much more...).
