Intellectual, intense, motivated, classy, articulate, witty, satirical, kind, generous, talented, strong-willed, charismatic, committed, loyal, compassionate, cool for a nerd (or cool AND a nerd, depending on whom you ask), passionate, funny, sensitive, introspective, full of integrity, open-minded, a believer in equality and social justice, loving, good listener, loquacious, eloquent, and "an all-around swell guy."
I wouldn't say "modest" is exactly on the list, but I wouldn't say "arrogant" is, either - the life I've lived and the people I've loved have taught me my worth. I know where I've been but I'm always ready to relearn my story from another point of view. I have a decent sense of where I'm going, paired with the willingness to be wrong. I know what I want from a relationship but I'm fully aware that most people's actual partner choices belie their stated partner wishes. I'd rather be happy than right, so I tend more toward curiosity than dealbreakers.
I'm a mostly unapologetic romantic (I suck at playing it cool) and an entertainer. I've got big plans and a good life full of amazing people; I'd like to share them with someone special.
