The extravagant pleasures of a night out will quell my thirst for adventure and exploration; however, a quiet night in reading a book, sharing stories and laughing next to an open fire, or simply enjoying the company of another while strolling through a park also appeal to me. Sharing creativity, imagination, experiences, and not being afraid to try something new or different are characteristics that I try to exhibit and value. I express a genuine care for those that I love and try my best to be there for them. I commend those who go out of their way to help another. I will admit that I do have faults and make mistakes, but I actively try to learn from everything I do. I wouldn't want someone to impress me, and I wouldn't want to impress others and engross myself in superficial, shallow conversations.
I think that being ourselves is an integral part of a first encounter. Perfection shouldn't be a goal, and I would be lying if I said that there is such thing as a perfect person. I would rather meet someone with room for growth than someone who already has it all. I don't know everything, and I don't want to know everything. I want to learn, no doubt, but there's a beauty in the unknown that I think helps stirs the curiosity in us all.
I suppose some people tend to describe me as the cool nerd, and over the years, I have grown quite fond of that title. I'm typically not the initiator of conversation, but once I start dwelling into our interests, it's hard for me to stop. I enjoy maturity and intellect, but also find the time to be odd, whimsical, and silly. I'm a kid at heart, and I don't ever want to change that. It's a balance.
Playfulness, humbleness, openness, humor, wit, passion, honesty, engagement, confidence, sophistication, and romance all attract me. I suppose you could say that I'm definitely a more long-term relationship kind of guy. I have a lot of love to give and share to those open enough to receive it. I know that's a lot of words, and there's much more to it if I wanted to ramble, but I'd rather just share the moment than talk about it. To me, it's not about the temptations of the present, but more so about the endearing care for the future.
I'm a dreamer and greatly appreciate those down to earth conversations with individuals who may have other perspectives. Agree to disagree I tell myself; there's always something new to learn and I embrace differing opinions. I also believe that shifting conflict into a positive experience can greatly aid in our ventures because it continually teaches us new ways to approach situations and enlightens us on our priorities and values. Life is always full of surprises, and I'm down for what ever it throws at me next. I like surprises actually. Its about the human experience. So let's make a toast to potential, seize the opportunities, and make the most out of everything we do.
