I'm Bernard. I feel we are all a little too close to the subject matter to be completely objective. I would think a self-summary of our negative traits would be harder to write, but more telling. My worse trait I have been told is that I am occasionally irritating (is there a man who isn't?), fortunately this is rarely fatal, but after a few hours of my company, you might wish it were.
Let me help anyone viewing me decide if I'm someone they would like to know better. I feel my explanations to the questions will give you more than enough information to get the ball rolling. Although I know a few things that would/did drive me crazy in a partner, but I feel an exact list of personality traits is neither helpful or possible. Like tools in a toolbox, a trait which comes in really useful is an ability to compromise, another might be letting go of anger, but there are many ways to get the job done. Sorry for the metaphor.
This is starting to feel like a dumb way to meet someone, but everyone seems to think this is the way to meet. The only ancillary benefit is that my typing has gotten much better, but that wasn't my intention. So if we don't have a friend match with aprox. 70% of our answers, please stop reading. Some, not all of those questions seem to cut right to the chase. Sorry for making you do the research, but those extra minutes may save you/me from emailing a person who you really don't connect with, or a wasted evening. My friends describe me as; warm, kind, genuine, honest (to a fault), love to smile, willing to help anyone. I hope I can live up to those adjectives.
I asked my best friend to describe my personality, he said, "you are definitely not vanilla, that's for sure, more like rocky road, an acquired taste". Please take notice of my personality traits, we should have some matches, otherwise, time spent with me might feel like getting a root canal. That's fine, only looking for one. Either way, good luck, and enjoy your journey.
