I'm in a place where I ideally want to fall in love forever, but I know that takes time and a lot of "passes" on either side.
I recently realized that I basically wear my heart on my sleeve in a lot of ways, and want someone who does the same. Happy go lucky types who keep everything inside and don't know how to express their feelings need not apply. I want someone who can tell me (with words) when I'm not giving them what they need, and lets me (verbally or not) know when I am getting it right, and who can take it when I tell them what I need, either way, too. People really need to be told what someone who isn't them needs to feel loved and cared about. You can't expect someone to always get it right, without some direction.
I sometimes open up fast socially, but I don't really believe in instant "sparks" as a good indicator of a sound romantic future. It takes TIME to feel romantically cozy. Persistence has paid off in the past, so it would seem I respond well the pressureless time to get to know someone.
I have never fallen out of love with anyone I've been in love with. I take love seriously. I've fallen out of infatuation, but never love.
I'm looking for a geeky*~ guy with a high emotional IQ (can easily and openly communicate their thoughts and feelings,understands how and when to dole out sympathy, and appreciates sympathy himself), who wants to engage in some projects and pursuits with me sometimes, who likes to give an receive a good amount of attention. Also one who enjoys all the fun things between kissing and sex.
(I'm not quite 5'7" so guys, if you're shorter than me, I've got news for you, you aren't 5'8")
Right now I'm really enjoying the sound of rain that just picked up outside, and also I really like to bike in the rain when it's warm enough out. :-)
I'm consistently on the cusp with Meyers-Briggs. I feel like it says a lot more about who you think you are than who you actually are. I get ENFP and INTP the most.
*~ smart, creative, into science, math, technology, making, maybe stuff like board games and probably into some media geeks tend to enjoy too, but I'm not a (video) gamer, and don't particularly want one. Playing video games SOMETIMES is ok though, and I could be up for joining in on some of that.
