What do you need to know about me?
I'm intense but laidback most the time.
I'm passionate about many things that are important to the world.
I'm pretty awkward, but it works for some people.
I enjoy movies and tv shows not to analyze, but to tune out.
I'm an avid reader of non-fiction, but fiction is a different story.
I care about the environment, but don't have a need to be in it every weekend.
I don't own a car and prefer it that way.
I have a tendency to need to be radically spontaneous at least a couple times a year to burst out of my typical routine. This can mean many things.
I'm fairly competitive with athletic activities, but more respectable (i.e. less trash talking, more nefarious deal making) with board games and the such.
I regularly keep up with politics and news and probably know too much for my own good.
I'm not afraid to make my opinion known and am a straight shooter.
I believe in honesty over everything.
I'm a realist so tact and I have a complicated relationship.
This also leads me to be a bit cynical.
But I'm happy nonetheless.
What am I looking for?
I'll admit I don't have this completely figured out. What I do know I need from a partner is someone who can engage with me intellectually, will stand up to me and call me out on my shit, checked their flaky tendencies at the door years ago, has a desire for the romantic or is at least able to tolerate my corniness and the fact that I probably watch more chick flicks than they do.
