Hey! So, right off the bat I'll give you one guarantee: you will likely never meet another person -quite- like me. That said, I think the person I -am- is pretty freakin' awesome, and if you give me a chance and read on I think you just might too.
I'm a very convicted, independent, and passionate person. I take pride in trying to be the best person I can be and working to make myself and the world around me a little bit better everyday.
Volunteering to help others is something I especially care about. If I do nothing else in my life, I want to have a positive impact on my community and the world. I'm finally at the point in my life where I can start getting heavily involved in this belief, and I'm incredibly excited about it. I'd love to find someone who feels the same.
Beyond that, I have -waaaay- too many interests for my own good. I'm a technophile geek nature lover who also has passions for art, humor, and cute fuzzy animals. Ok, the not so cute and fuzzy ones too; as long as it's not actively mauling me I probably find it cool.
Geek is a label I wear with pride. A love for the geekier and nerdier side of life is a trait that's very important to me in any potential partner. I would love to meet someone I can share my hobbies and passions with. Below, I've created a short quiz to help determine if that potential exists. If you've ever experienced any of the following symptoms it's a good sign that you're awesome and we'd get along famously:
1. You feel a calling to slay virtual villains and save digital denizens.
2. You find that you'd rather spend time at a library than a bar.
3. You've ever blurted out the the phrase "Great scott!" when excited about something.
4. You have an unnatural, but -totally- understandable, desire to one day own a Pembroke Welsh Corgi.
I may also be a slightly hopeless romantic who loves cheesy sentimental crap, but please don't hold it against me.
A lot of people would describe me as quiet, but it's only true to an extent. I'm definitely not the most outgoing person, but I try to be immensely open, dedicated, and generous in all things. When I care about something or someone I make sure it shows. I can get along with just about anyone; I'm a quiet people person. When I get comfortable around someone I can be really playful and goofy though. I try not to take myself too seriously.
What I'm I'm looking for is a woman who places value in a relationship of mutual understanding and respect. Someone who is able to communicate their feelings to me in a calm, open manner whenever she needs or just wants to.
The kind of woman I'd like to meet handles herself with kindness and dignity; I can't stand pettiness, rudeness and childishness. Someone who can also be comfortable and happy with us being together no matter what we're doing, super exciting or not, and who I can be proud and grateful to have had the opportunity to share life with.
And very importantly, someone who is genuinely interested in getting to know and communicate with me as well! I don't like to feel as though I'm the only one initiating contact. It makes me feel like an annoying gnat you really would rather not talk to. And it's fine if you'd rather not, just let me know and we can move on rather than wasting each other's time. I think a real relationship, whether just a friendship or more, requires effort from both sides. I'm ready to commit to that effort and appreciate others who are willing to as well.
