As overused and cliché as the phrase is, one of the best ways to describe me is to say that I am very laid back and easy going. I'm almost always in a good mood and I have a pretty calm nature. I am a pretty traditional introvert meaning that I prefer smaller groups and that I'm not a huge partier, and I usually score an INTP or INFP when I take the Myers-Briggs test. I would also describe myself as a conservative, both when it comes to values and politics. When it comes to relationships, I like to take things slow early on and not rush things (either physically or emotionally), but please don't take that to mean I fear commitment as this is not the case.
Thankfully my mother refused to play activity director for me when I was little, so I've always been very good at being independent and entertaining myself. Some of my favorite outside hobbies include going shooting (shotguns being my favorite), archery, going hiking, camping/backpacking, bowling, water skiing and jet skiing (sadly I don't own a boat or jet ski), boccie, tennis, and swimming. When I am relaxing at home I enjoy video games, TV & movies (primarily fantasy and science fiction), reading, learning/researching, friendly poker games, other card games, and the occasional board game. Some of the topics/hobbies that I have become interested in lately, but as of yet have no personal hands-on experience with, include gardening, hunting, and homesteading.
I would also describe myself as a huge dog lover and look forward to the day that I have a dog in my life again. I do not have one currently because I like the larger breeds (like huskies and german shepherds) and I live on the top floor of my apartment and my work is too far away for me to come home to let it out at lunchtime.
I should probably mention, because I see them listed so often in other profiles, the fact that I do not enjoy watching sports or going dancing.
I think that about covers the basics. Feel free to let me know if you think that I've left out something critical.
