My astrological sign (Leo) is a good fit, even though I don't believe in that sort of thing. I am genuine and affectionate to those close to me, but typically indifferent to those I don't know. I am not vain, but I do have a sense of self respect that some would describe as stubbornness. I think that's a positive trait. Who wants to be around someone who just agrees with you all the time?
One thing that makes me unique is that I do not pretend to have my opinion on everything figured out. As we get older, many of us try to simplify our lives by defining specific beliefs without much to back it up. I try not to assume my opinion is always right. I like to look at problems, thoughts, and ideas and break them down and consider all possibilities. Essentially, that means I still enjoy learning. I avoid making assumptions if possible. Instead of categorizing people into stereotypes, I try to see them as individuals. This is a long winded way to say I am open minded. It also has the side benefit of making me a good listener.
I believe in having a few very close friends as opposed to many casual acquaintances. Such people tend to be hard to find as the closer you get to someone, the potential for friction increases. I am generally patient and forgiving. I am real on how I feel about things, but tactful. I will not bullshit or lead you on. I see these as somewhat rare qualities in our modern world of emotional fronts and throw away companions. These are things I also I look for in others as I am certainly not perfect myself (no, really!).
Although I worked in IT (computer stuff) for many years, I prefer to meet people in person as opposed to this internet thing. I think it is difficult to get a real picture of who a person is from just what they write about themselves. We're all busy folks and it's hard to want to spare the time. Why not just filter through the chaff with a click of a button? Well, because you might miss something totally awesome! Maybe that will be me, or maybe it will be the chemistry between us. Maybe it'll just be the dinner we'll have together. Either way, you don't want to pass up something good!
