As for myself, I'm what you might call "free spirited" although that doesn't mean I don't have a plan for my life. I'm passionately political, but I can still enjoy the company who aren't interested in the filthy world of American democracy.
As for what I'm looking for in a female, I want a girl who is capable of having an intelligent conversation and is passionate about something. It doesn't have to be something I care about or am interested in, it just has to be SOMETHING. Strong convictions and the ability to intellectually back them up are also a turn on. I tend to go for the weird ones.
