Serious hat on: (ง ͠° ͟ل͜ ͡°)ง
Based on past experience, these are the necessary characteristics for a partner:
Above average intelligence and reasoning capability: I enjoy life more when I surround myself with intelligent people.
A strong willingness/desire to communicate: Mutual understanding is paramount.
A shared cultural background: IE, a college education and a western oriented upbringing. Without this, values are usually too far apart to be compatible.
A (reasonably) healthy body.
Spunk/Confidence. I'm looking for a partner, not a walking stick.
Not a huge party person: I don't drink, smoke, or do loud drunken parties. If you require that to have fun, I'm not a good fit.
Serious hat off: ( ͡ᵔ ͜ʖ ͡ᵔ )
I've known that "Winter is Coming" since before it was cool.
According to a pair of white women from the 1920s, I'm an INTJ. They could probably also tell a lot about me from my handwriting and my date of birth.
