PREAMBLE 2: Yes, this is a long profile... I know! But I actually enjoy listening more than talking (which if the other person is interested, I enjoy a lot, too). I find it important to be open and descriptive so I don't miss anything important. You should NOT read everything if you like concise.
Some things I've learned about my personality (A RATHER DRY SECTION RIGHT NOW, SKIP TO THE NEXT SECTIONS FOR MORE LULZ): I analyze and think a lot, and I do it well: I'm extremely open and honest. I'm always nice to people. I have super-high moral standards for myself: I don't kill insects until I have a logical justification that they're a parasite. I've realized that my happiness is mostly based upon hanging around and talking with people that I enjoy. I absolutely love being spontaneous and non-conforming, despite the world (and my own mind) around me only allowing so much. I start conversations with total strangers all the time, go shirtless and dance in public, parkour down escalators, refuse to pay more than 10 cents for water, try to get an exciting career without college. I enjoy inventing stock-investing algorithms and learning how to make a paper-towel dispenser dispense faster than it wants. I dream of having spontaneous wild sex in crazy places but I haven't found that girl yet.
My cons: when I'm alone, my confidence falls. I also over-analyze most things, and have to battle with *doing* instead of *planning*. I'm always worried about offending people (but I try to figure out and ignore the things people shouldn't be offended by), and included in that, I'm bad at being assertive/aggressive beyond the friend stage.
I can find any open-minded personality cool, but if I had to choose, right now I'd be most interested in finding someone who's very action-oriented/aggressive and can handle the fact that despite my eagerness, I'm only really confident when I'm in a good mood.
If you want I have some extra references/info, here: Couchsurfing profile: http://www.couchsurfing.org/people/keating0/
Keating really is my first name, and I use it for EVERYTHING. I don't care much for privacy, and odds are, if you see a "Keating" somewhere else on the 'tubes, it's me.
Ok, I am the only human [I can find] in the entire Seattle region on OKC that's says they're comfortable (let alone wanting to be) jumping straight to phone conversations. That's gotta mean something some way or another. I'm unsure whether I should be gleefully excited with my unmatched openness or to be scared of how alone a personality like me is in the universe... (or maybe just the US... I must go run some science!)
