Anonymous asked: What do you look for in an ideal partner?
Hmm. I don’t think that I have a great answer for this.
But If I had to say something, I’d probably go with: curiosity and passion. I really like sharing the “big” things that I get really excited about and having others do the same with me. I definitely enjoy being around people that care about what’s going on in the world and with the people that inhabit it.
I think that, in the past, I’ve gravitated towards more optimistic partners to help balance out my general cynicism. That said, I feel like it might be cool to date someone with an equally misanthropic worldview.
Oh, and I probably wouldn’t date anyone that refuses to use the Oxford comma. That’s really irritating.
