My Dad influenced me big time. He was a "handshake" type of guy and his word meant everything. He's been in business for 30 years because of it. I am exactly the same way. My integrity is everything to me, if I say I am going to do something I will 100% do it. No questions. However I live in LA and realize that not all people embrace honesty like myself and have grown up a little. Live and learn.
Ultimately I am looking for a best friend who appreciates me as much as I appreciate them. :)
