i spend most of my [extra] time reading, working on art projects, running, and exploring---though not as much as i would like. i don't hate television, i just don't have time for it---on occasion i'll watch something on netflix.
i'm good with my hands and i don't mind getting dirty---i just hate having to clean off after an oil change. the outdoors make me feel at peace---and reminds me of how small i am. i take things as they come---and accept them. i don't throw tantrums or hissy fits---life is too short to stress over the small stuff.
i'm grounded to the earth, and practical. i don't get mad because i understand there are external/internal variables in play that make beings do things they don't really want to do that affect how others feel---it's something i do automatically because it's part of who i am. i usually laugh when people get mad/angry and attempt to bring them back down to a place of peace (i.e., if he/she is approachable).

Also, lately I've been think about what Harry Reis, PhD, points out. “Online dating creates a shopping mentality, and that is probably not a particularly good way to go about choosing a mate.” This can lead, he states, to daters becoming over critical, and can discourage spontaneous interaction, especially when online daters eventually meet in person.

• you're spontaneous and like getting dirty
• you're a francophile
