I'm a bit shy but I try not to let that stop me. I like to be outgoing to make up for it... maybe to practice not being shy? All I can say for sure is that I'm the self-sufficient introvert type to the point where I'll straight-up forget to be a social person unless I'm in practice or I have someone who I don't have to hesitate to call or text.
And in the end that's really what I'm looking for here. Not a grand romance, not a quick fling; I'd like to meet interesting people with no expectation that we have to be romantic from the word 'go' or anything like that.
I enjoy weight lifting, yoga, hiking, kayaking, road biking, museums, art galleries, gardens (not particularly good at gardening, but I appreciate a nice place!), woods, anime, music, and to a lesser extent movies and stuff. I'm a big fan of most ethnic and world cuisines, though these days I tend to go low carb regardless of cuisine.
