I have a lot of life experience but still maintain my inner youth. I love to have fun and enjoy each day for what it brings, good or bad. I get complimented regularly that I don't look my age; sometimes my pictures don't show it but it's true, or at least my friends say so and I choose to agree.
I am a lover not a fighter, but when I find a cause worth fighting for, whether it be a cause or a person, I will fight as hard as I am capable.
I am independent, motivated and I go after what I want. I am a Leo in astrological terms and the traits fit me very well. I am loyal to a fault, sometimes chasing after ideals that no one else will follow. I am dominant in my relationships and I enjoy having the choice to lead as opposed to follow, even if I don't choose to lead all the time. I can be your best friend and will protect you even when no one else will stand and fight, even if the battle is hopeless. I don't know the meaning of giving up, especially if it's something I believe in.
I am quite a spiritual person but not necessarily religious although I find religions fascinating. There are so many aspects of different religions that I find valuable in living my daily life. I was raised Roman Catholic but have learned to embrace all varieties of religious belief systems finding merit in each making for a more complete whole.
I am educated and thoughtful, concerning myself with higher order thinking as often as I am able, straying from the simple and mundane. There is so much knowledge out there and I just want to absorb it all. Learning is a great passion regardless the topic. It would take another intellectual to keep up with me.
I identify as pansexual in that I come to care about individuals without regard to gender identity or sexual orientation. Many people cannot wrap their heads around that concept but it makes for a more compassionate life for me. I am heartfelt and wear my heart on my sleeve which gets me hurt more often than not. One day the right people will find themselves in my life and will be appreciate my gentle strength. I prefer to have many people surrounding me that I can interact with on personal, intimate levels; some would call me polyamorous, I just love to love. I would give the shirt off my back to help a friend but never expect the same in return.
Get to know me and you will learn to love me. I do have my moods but usually that's when I am taking down time to rejuvinate my will and rest up so I can get back into the game of life at full steam ahead.
I am passionate romantically but not in a romantic way as most would define it. I am a realist and speak my mind. Some would say I lack a filter, I say I don't mince words and say what I mean. There have been people in my life that have misunderstood my meaning or straight forwardness and mistakenly assumed that I am super critical only to learn that I am only trying to build those around me up to meet the potential I see in them. Everyone can be great if only they envision it for themselves.
