justelise, I noticed you didn't religion or politics or age, yet those are usually major discriminating factors. Location can be an issue as well, unless you're looking for a long-distance relationship.

Religion - doesn't really matter to me. I'm accepting of anyone who has common sense and the ability to see things from a different point of view. I, personally, was raised Lutheran (Lutheran school/church) against my will and have been doing everything in my power to beat it out of myself since I became old enough to make my own decisions. Organized religion is not for me, personally, but I'm always open to discussion with other people.

Politics - as I hinted in my original post, I lean toward innovative and liberal thinkers. I don't feel comfortable enough to share my own personal politics in this forum, but I can tell you that I have never much gotten along with Republicans or people from more conservative schools of thought unless they were open to my point of view. It's hard to be culturally and politically conservative and try to see things through liberal eyes.

Age - hmm age doesn't really bother me that much. How about this.. old enough to drink but not on pension or social security? [Smile] I'm not too picky, though I do think that it's hard to have a healthy relationship with someone who could be your parent or your child. It's natural for me to gravitate to people in their 20's and 30's.. but guys tend to be immature, so.. it would have to be evaluated on a case to case basis.

Distance - Distance isn't a horrible issue if both parties are very good communicators and willing to travel and make sacrifices to spend quality time with each other. It's hard work but sometimes it's really worth it. I am convinced that no one seeks out a LD relationship.. it generally just kinda lands in your lap. I'd have to say for the time being I would limit myself to a couple of hours worth of driving (under 12) or a cheap plane flight (east coast). I'd also rather to stay out of relationships that would send me through customs repeatedly. [Smile]

That's a shame. You don't know what you're missing.

I'm really glad I posted here. Everyone's been so nice and I've found someone very special to talk to. Thanks for the extremely warm welcome.

Oh and this is a lame attempt to not let my thread die. [Smile]

Meh, let things go as they may be destined to go. Instead, make your mark in other threads...i.e. post early, post often [Smile] .

I like my geeks on the tall and chubby side. Hair is optional. Glasses are sexier than contacts. They should also be good communicators and effective speakers (there are too many geeks that lack verbal skills). Liberal thinkers open to new things, people, places, and experiences are welcome to apply. A penchant for Macs and Linux is a big bonus, but not entirely necessary.

Oh man, I already got one, you see?

WinterSolstice is perfect. And, damn, is he hot in his glasses, though he hates them so terribly because he has an astigmatism in each eye, though his vision is excellent outside of it. He has his sunnies, too, which are really nice.

He doesn't think he's great, but he is.

I wish you the best in finding one like that. They exist, though they generally don't come pre-loaded with the Mr. Right OS.

I always tell people the one thing you give to a potential life mate is to give them unconditional love. If you're actually giving them truly unconditional love, they will change themselves to be the person you need them to be because you are the person they need you to be.

Every person, even the most cynical of our numbers, may still remain cynical to the world at large, but will become the best person they can be under such supportive, loving, caring attentions.

Nicely said [Smile] . There's no doubt that I'm cynical, but *someone* can stop me from being cynical when she's present [Big Grin] . The best part - she understands my cynicism [Smile] .
