I'm a bit of a homebody and fairly reserved around people until I get to know them better, which as you might imagine is a poor combination for meeting people. That has been sufficient so far and has put me in the position where I can safely say that I'll manage to live a life that's comfortable, happy, productive, etc. Now the question becomes: can we do better?
:) I'd like to think so.
I'm working on a theory right now to better identify what I'm looking for. Let me know what you think.
The basis is that I'm happiest while I'm working toward some life 'ambition' (for lack of a better word), and that should remain unchanged while in a relationship. From that I theorize that a good relationship would be one where we both bring valuable contributions to meeting each others life ambitions, which is easier with more common ambitions and when personalities and skills mesh well. If that is true then it follows that the most important thing for me to talk about are my ambitions, skills, and weaknesses. That personality connection remains a mystery though, so we'll just have to talk that one out.
Obviously one of my weaknesses is that I have no faith in logic... ;D yeah, right; logical and clear thought is what Davids do best. Creativity on the other hand is more difficult so I could use somebody with a little more chaos to balance my order. I do seem to be a good fuel source to feed creativity; I just personally lack that igniting spark. Just as an example: I'm incapable of 'exploring' on my own, ending up wandering in circles, but as part of a group I love pointing out interesting details and nooks.
My ambitions in life are fairly average I think. My work weeks are usually quiet, with most activities happening on the weekends, and I'd like to start making better use of my vacation (exploration deficiency is hurting me there). Quiet days would be for talking, playing board games, or catching a show somewhere. Ideally I'd also like to get some regular exercise throughout the week; I'm working on running and biking, and I'll take almost any excuse to go hiking. Other ambitions include: continuing to learn, making sweet music (literally), getting away from the crowds, finally making this video game concept that I've had in my head for a while, and keeping my place clean (hey, they can't all be fun).
