Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm curious, open, artistic, intuitive, articulate, centered,
engaging, and bright (with a few rough edges here and there). I
have always been considered a leader by others (even though I am
quite comfortable allowing others to lead) and am quite confident
in who I am to reveal both my emotions and faults (yes...there are
a few). I seem to be capable of exhibiting contradictory traits –
playful, serious; strong, vulnerable; outgoing, shy; casual,
formal; laid-back...serially thoughtful, yet sporadically
irreverent (perhaps my birth sign – Gemini – has contributed to
these seemingly conflicting behaviors). I'm attracted to those who
possess emotional strength... able to see the "positives" of life
without becoming bogged down with the inevitable negatives that
accompany living. I'd like you to be emotionally courageous –
unafraid to reveal who you are. I have learned that I have little
patience for those who are overly judgmental and closed-minded.

Meeting friends for dinner and drinks or an evening unwinding at

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
