As this is a dating site, I'll save all the honest and forthright stuff for the 3rd date. That's when the real stuff tends to creep it's way through the shell of deceit, right? No really, I have kind of a dry sense of humor with absolute blasts of genius. The genius is sometimes masked within my ranting tirades against anything. I have this uncanny ability to defend and condemn any point of view at the same time, It makes me one of the most accepting people alive while also one of the most judgmental. My humor is usually self deprecating as I can only really laugh at something I understand. Things I don't understand get a head shake and a nod.

My ex says I'm too smart and generous for my own good.
My boss says I'm far too committed
My nieces say I'm too kind to people who wrong me
