So what are a few things that make me unique? The first quality my friends have mentioned about me would be my spontaneousness. To elaborate, I'm the kind of guy who can do something fun on a moment's notice such as a mini road trip (love road trips!) or any other kind of random adventure. My friends have even called me the "go to guy for random adventures." However, the one quality that random people and friends have associated with me the most is genuiness. According to those who have met me and have known me for a long time, I don't pretend to be someone I'm not and say certain things just to get approval from everybody. What you see is what you get. And what you ask about me, I answer truthfully because I want people to respect me for who I am; not for someone I'm pretending to be. Now, if I had to explain why I'm like this; I guess my best answer for whoever is reading is because I want to attract and surround myself with people that I get along with where I can be myself and respect who I really am. Because if you pretend to be someone you're not, they're only liking your "other" you. Not the "real" you. That's not a real connection.
In the end, I guess you can I am a young man with a big heart that can be both your best friend and boyfriend. I admit I do have my flaws as well. For example; my friends have told me that I can be shy at times (especially with "new" people), I take myself seriously at times, and that my jokes suck sometimes lol. But who doesn't have flaws? No one is perfect.
Lastly; as far as why I am on OkCupid, I'm not looking for some one-night stand or something short term. I'm on here to find something long-term. I want to find someone to talk to, start off as friends first, and then see where things go from there. :)
Well if you liked what you have read (and I apologize for my long intro), feel free to message me and find out what else is there to the mystery of "Gerard". :)
