Any summary like this will probably make me look like a bunch of stereotypes, but I like to think I've got a little bit that is uniquely my own. I'm a geek, and proud of it, and that tends to define a lot of what I do socially, but it isn't all of what I am by any means. I'm also quite into music, do occasional gigs, festivals, and still hang around with the university's rock society a fair bit. I'm definitely not afraid to be me, whatever people might think at the time. Funny looks don't bother me!
In person I tend to bounce off the other person quite a bit - in garrulous company I tend to talk and talk, with a quieter person I'm more reserved. I'd like to think I'm an open and honourable person - I generally like to talk about things, I'll rarely keep secrets back and I'm good at listening and helping people with problems. In that regard I'd see myself as a good friend - and as a partner, I feel communication is incredibly important, and if I'm worried about something I'll talk about it calmly up-front rather than let it grow into an issue.
Definitely like people who I can talk to - from long and in-depth philosophical conversations to just casual chatter, I do prefer people I can hold an intelligent conversation with.
I tend to be quite affectionate and tactile - definitely one for hugs, kisses and soft little touches! With a partner I tend to both give, and prefer to receive, a fair bit of attention - I'm not ultra-clingy but do need a certain level of regular interaction.
