The most influential person in my life has been
An optimistic attitude toward life; I don't want a fellow who is too soured on life, nor too jaded, to enjoy the simple things in life, as well as the more sophisticated endeavors. I not only enjoy watching classic television and movies (I am an actress, and sometimes work in CA), but I also like old radio programs ("Our Miss Brooks," "The Jack Benny Program," "Amos 'n' Andy," "Inner Sanctum," etc.), classic cars, Glen Miller, classic rock 'n' roll from the '50s and '60s, and so on. The man who gets my heart does not have to be rich, retired, or "movie star handsome," but just a nice guy who does not have a "secret" life he keeps from me.
