**I'm returning to the south bay at the end of March. I'm currently in the Chicago area. I'm done with cold weather and flat land!**
2012 was okay. I didn't really live it like it was the end of the world, but it was quite the year. I quit my job...a decision over 2 years in the making. I hated myself for selling out for as long as I did, but eh, I think most people would understand. Now I'm on a more enjoyable, and unfortunately unguided path with my life.
This year (2014) I am returning to San Jose on March 24 in order to be in a place I love and take it from there.
I'm not too serious of a person, but I do value intelligence, outgoing-ness, and nice people. What can I say...opposites attract :P
j/k, sort of............ :)
Oh, I also appreciate the strive for self-improvement. I think it's a goal without end and somewhat self-defeating, but so is procrastination, and yet I still partake in that pastime.
I'm a bit anti-social, quiet, shy, logical, and sensitive --an INTJ (weak T & J).
Based on my past relationship experience, I find that I may take a bit longer to build a "working" emotional connection than the opposite sex. It doesn't mean I'm not interested, but a little slower to build trust and fully open up. That being said, I think a strong emotional connection is needed for me to thrive in the moment and fully love my partner.
One other thing--I'm the youngest of 3 siblings (by 6-8 years) and have so far looked up for guidance my whole life. I am truly looking for a partner that I can grow with on this journey rather than a follower (or way different--a fling). (I have no prejudice for those looking for the alternative, it's just that I'm not the one you're looking for.)
I like people who can take care of themselves, like taking care of others but also appreciate being taken care of.
