I am just going to cut to the chase: I would love to find a fella who has a fantastic sense of humor and is truly at ease with himself- physically, emotionally, and intellectually. He is relatively smart- bookish even- but not pedantic. This guy loves great food , understands women and generally admires them. I'd love to be in the arms of a somewhat paunchy fellow- not morbidly obese, but a guy who has some meat on his bones and can walk with my doggies and I, or challenge me to a spontaneous sprint. You dig on pop-culture, but know that The Atlantic Monthly and the New Yorker exist and one day you plan on reading them! Optimism is cool, but a dollop of sarcasm and dry wit is best. I've hiked all around Canada, hung out in Italy and know what to do in NYC, but it is my everyday life that holds the most joy for me. I think thinking is good, laughing is better and affection paired with both, equate true decadence.
