i had someone write this part for me a while ago (he had a whole formula and guaranteed results. totally scientific results!! you can guess how well that worked out...) so, here i am again, searching for the magic key words that might catch the eye of someone special. based on my research, i gather i'm supposed to say i love to travel, i'm super adventurous, and i want to be your princess, or something? you should see my face right now. i'm totally princess material.
by this point you should have detected a bit of sarcasm. that's good. the truth is i like travelling in small increments, but i also love being home. (my cat! my stuff! my hammock!) i'm not particularly adventurous, but i am a lot of other awesome things like loyal, honest, funny, smart, creative, patient (unless i'm driving (not a word about my driving. you don't like it, you can walk)), and possibly a bit too enamored of parentheses. still with me? cool.
i am also very low-maintenance. i don't wear makeup and i've been blessed with hair that doesn't need much work to look presentable. i'm most comfortable in pajama pants and flip flops. i'm a little nerdy about certain things, way too passionate about other things, and in complete denial about other other things (narwahls? seriously? no.)
i try to be grateful every day for the many blessings in my life. i believe in keeping things simple, and try to act from a place of compassion. honesty is important, drama is not.
i know this summary won't appeal to everyone. that's the point. i don't want to play the numbers game here. i don't want to play any games, period. (except cards against humanity, or boggle. i will kick your ass in boggle.) if you're still interested, there's a good chance we'll get along. so please, give me a shout. i'm looking forward to hearing from you :)
Side note: It might be helpful/unnecessary to note that I am an introvert. If you're not sure what that means, click below: http://www.16personalities.com/infj-strengths-and-weaknesses
(Wish I'd discovered this a few years earlier)
and finally, even though i know it will be ignored by most: i am looking for a long-term relationship. this means i am genuinely seeking to connect with someone intellecutally as well as physically. if all you are looking for is a hookup, please keep moving.
Movies: The Princess Bride, Tommy Boy, Transporter, Grease 2, Amelie, Chocolat, Mallrats, Serenity, Chorus Line, Adventures In Babysitting, 10 Things I Hate About You, etc. Basically anything silly, witty, or pretty to look at. I'm really not entertained by violence and misery.
Music: The most recent addition to my mp3 player is Paolo Nutini. The rest is mostly Jason Mraz, Our Lady Peace, Black Lab, Wham, Movie Soundtracks, and yoga music.
Food: Shorter to list what I don't like. No tomatoes, no seafood (although I try both every once in a while just to make sure). I would also like to note that I haven't eaten French fries since 1999 (stupid bet gone horribly wrong).
you know the appropriate response to "what what"
