Videos speak louder than words so if you don't want to read, these will give you a good idea of who I am:
Recap of the last year of my life: (Warning! Gross picture of when I fell off a fire escape halfway through!)
Used to play a game where people would give me songs I didn't know and I'd post them online in 20 or so minutes as best as I could do them:

Me dancing (popping!)
I made my profile more transparent. Instead of trying to be attractive and all that, I'm just gonna word vomit the major things about myself and what I'm looking for. Like... even all the stuff you'd usually wait awhile before telling anyone. Because why not? It saves time in the long run.
SO...Who I am:
I'm in my late 20's, I'm a photographer, hairstylist (my career), street dancer (popping), student of life (never stop learning!), huge nerd (ugly cried for an hour when Amy and Rory left), massively eccentric, and I think a snappy dresser.
I feel kind of behind in life, because everyone my age seems so put together. I don't own a car, I don't have kids, I don't have a house. All of that time and energy was spent on other things during my life.
I'm bipolar - I didn't realize this until my early 20's, and it wasn't until then that I went to a doctor to see about it. If that's a red flag, I'll give you an idea of how this would effect you:
Ok, so say you (hypothetical you) and me are living together, 2 years into a relationship, I might get sad and mopey for a week every couple months. Sometimes I say things too quickly and they come out wrong. I get REALLY passionate. Really, really passionate. I get over excited about things. Sometimes I'll want to pamper you and massage you and do lots of things for you, which you'll love for a day or two and then it'll get annoying, but then my mood will switch back to normal. I go from needy to wanting to be alone at least once a month. I call it Man-PMS.
Those are the kind of symptoms of my bipolar that would effect you. That's my big skeleton in the closet, I guess.
There's a lot more too it, I could talk for hours (ask me if you're interested), but that's what I think I would look like from your point of view.
The same thing that causes me problems however gives me amazing skills and talents. I am smart, artistic, insanely fast at learning things (for example, I built a guitar from scratch in a week with no woodworking experience), and I have a deep love of people. I love to photograph people, learn about them, I just love people. If you are interesting, I could seriously sit and talk to you for hours just learning about you.
Also, I am extremely capable of change. Legitimate, personality changing change. I just mention that because I think it comes from my being bipolar too, and so many people seem like they just can't change. They stay the same, always have the same problems their whole life - I evolve and want to find someone else who does too! If you don't change, you're living the same situation over and over!
