I have a tendency to say what's on my mind and may be overly honest at times (but in an endearing way, or so I'd like to believe). Friends are important to me, and I find quality far more important than quantity (which I think holds true for most things in life). My friends would describe me as sincere, fun, loyal, and definitely a little quirky.
I think you've got to live life responsibly, but know when to take a leap of faith. I'm always up for an adventure and can’t imagine living life by a routine. I’m looking for someone who feels similarly. Someone who is curious and seeks out new experiences. On the same token, I think every day life can be pretty adventurous, if you have the right perspective.
I value social and emotional intelligence as much as academic intelligence (and think it's harder to find in D.C.). I believe communication, honesty, trust, and respect fuel a good relationship - however, mutual attraction definitely helps the situation along quite a bit.
