Month Meme - Days 9 & 10

Tags: ,
Ganked this from mrstater. Would love to see more people do it, if you've got any time at all!

Missed another day so I'm doing two today. They work well together.

Days 9 & 10: Your sexuality and what you look for in a partner
I do somewhat wish the whole gay/bi/straight thing didn't exist as the dominant mentality in that I prefer Kinsey scale / continuum kind of mentalities and beyond that the idea of being attracted to individuals not entire groups of peoples (I'm heterosexual but that doesn't mean I am sexually attracted to every single person of a different sex/gender as mine), but since I have never really been sexually attracted to someone of the same sex/gender as me, I'm willing to accept the label straight.

So what do I find attractive in individual men? Well, I'm really all about the brain. I have to have someone smart, someone who is intellectually curious, who thinks and wants to learn. I'm just far too cerebral of a person myself and have to have someone who can challenge me and push me for this to not be a priority for me. That is followed closely by basic personality in that I need someone who is generally nice and cares about other people and who sees other people and treats other people, especially me, as important in their own rights and as equals. Everything else is way distant to those two. There isn't really a physical type to the men I've dated or to whom I've been sexually attracted and I don't think I look for anything in particular there. The only thing I can think of that past guys have in common is not being overweight, but I honestly don't think I'd have any problems dating someone who was overweight as long as the mind and personality were right. Otherwise, the guys I've dated have been different races, different heights, different hair and eye colors, different family religious backgrounds (though mostly tending toward agnostic or atheistic in their own personal lives), etc. and I've been attracted to an even broader range than the ones I've dated.
