As far as what I’m looking for, honestly and kindness are the most important things; especially when paired together. I rather enjoy fake arrogance but I detest fake humility. You should be the least critical person you know. You don’t judge people, or at least try not to act on it when you do :) You understand the importance of and are willing to endure the discomfort of speaking honestly, hopefully with some degree of tact. You’re not entitled; you don’t think that the world owes you things that it doesn’t owe all other decent people. And perhaps most importantly, while you’ve been humbled and disappointed by life, you haven’t let these experiences jade you.
In the end, I'm looking for a great friend, a companion, and a lover (not necessarily in that order). Everything else is icing on the cake, although a good sense of sarcastic humor may be a prerequisite.
A few additional quirks you’ll probably want to know include:
- I have a mildly embarrassing addiction to reality TV shows like What Not To Wear, Fear Factor, and Real Housewives of (City X). Or at least I did when I still had cable. Oh snap!
- I’m easily baited into conversations about philosophy, psychology, science, and other nerdy stuff, although I promise not to bore you unless you've been very very naughty.
- At times I've been known to break into fits of movie quoting, kind of like a Jekyl and Hyde thing except I don’t wear a top hat and kill people.
This may be one of my favorite things ever: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5K1RcKJVbHA
