I am usually pretty shy at first in real life, until I warm up to someone. Once I do however, its a pretty big change and I am very affectionate and playful. I enjoy just being in bed or the couch with someone and just cuddling, but sometimes I also love to be a bit bad and going out and finding some trouble to get into ;)
I usually date/get along with people who are at least a few years, or more, older than me, but have met exceptions. I don't want someone that is exactly like me in every way. I want someone who has strengths and interests in some areas where I am weak, and can push and help me become stronger in those areas. Also I do like darker/alternative/punkish styles and looks as far as how I dress, but I would never ever think of myself as goth or anything even close... I am attracted to a wide range of styles.
I am not perfect, I have gone through some tough times in my life, made mistakes. These things are in my past but still part of who I am. I also don't really desire or want someone that is perfect, I would much rather be with someone that is able to understand me. I am not broken, but if you want perfect, and some past issues are a deal breaker, look elsewhere.
I have a weak spot for helping people... even when I know better. Making someone else happy or smile even in small ways has always made me happier than almost anything else in this world. Sadly this often leads to getting taken advantage of cause people can suck.
