I'm an honest guy. I enjoy taking chances. I love being open and vulnerable and willing to experience life without a plan. I value education and believe that we should all strive to be life-long learners. I love sharing my views and listening to others. I smile a lot, I'm loud, I'm a big nerd, I'm passionate, I have high expectations, I stand up for what I believe in, and I'm indifferent to what others think of me. I don't always understand things but that doesn't mean that I don't always care.
I like guys who like to smile. I like people who know how to have fun. I like people with attitude, people who are smart, and people who bring a new perspective. I like people with something to say, people who challenge me, people who inspire me, and people who are honest. I like people that appreciate creativity in all forms. I'd also probably really enjoy you if you; are realistic and yet still positive, continuously strive to learn, don't fill stereotypes just to fit in, are sure of yourself and your abilities, and don't get caught up in impressing people...you just do. I would also like you to be wearing clothes in your pictures; call me old-fashioned.
Important characteristics I look for in a relationship are; affection, respect, good communication, physical attraction, mutual support, reliability, honesty, admiration, a quid pro quo, and balance (intimacy|independence).
