My pet hate is people who are "looking for people who are single, for new friends"
Ginger / medium-small / piercings / dyke-chic / excellent hip-to-waist ratio (fact) / usually pyjamaed / originated down south
Sarcastic / witty / politically curious / dorky, nerdy AND geeky / full of anecdotes / slightly too honest / amusingly overdramatic / excellent in a crisis / clumsy. Like so very clumsy
Poly / bi / friends before considering dating / dating positions currently not available, there is only so much time in the world after all
Girlfriend / bestie whose approval you must win
Walks / dogs / classic rock music / smoking / eating / board games / trading facts, puns and stories / making people laugh / making stuff
Moderate in all views / chilled out / anti-extremism, including Tumblr and Reddit's worst opinions / atheist / pro-happiness and freedom for everyone
The people I like most make me laugh unexpectedly, make me feel good about myself without being super emotional about it, have well-researched opinions, don't take themselves or their relationships too seriously, and get excited about learning new things. Skills at word play and good eyebrows a definite bonus. I might require you to tell me I'm the best on command.
If you've made it this far without being concerned, good. Here are some reasons why being friends with me is great:
-I remember what stuff you like
-I give presents for no reason at all
-I'm really understanding if you have to cancel plans last minute
-My taste in music will make you feel better about your own
-I will make you laugh
-I'm really good at sharing
-You can tell me the same joke over and over and I'll keep laughing at it
-My bestie is much cooler than me and I'll let you be her friend too
OKC might be on to something by saying I'm less adventurous than average, but I'm not having this less romantic lark. I'm very romantic. One time I bought my then-girlfriend a cactus.
