I am somewhat introverted, but typically very easygoing/laid back. I don't like confrontation--however, if faced with it, I hold my ground.
I sometimes come across as disagreeable or indifferent, but this is actually far from the truth. At times, I can be far too empathetic…and my disagreeable/indifferent disposition is a bit of a defense mechanism.
Some people might call me a pessimist or say that I'm paranoid, but I think of myself as having a greater awareness of risk.
I can be a bit of a dork at times. I am aware of this, and I have come to accept it. I am not looking for perfection--and I don't have it to offer.
I tend to see beauty where others do not.
I have a deep appreciation for the arts. I also have a great interest in unconventional ideas. I am open to new experiences and intellectual pursuits, and I like a good mental challenge…I want to experience life as deeply as possible.
I'm not troubled by rule-breaking behavior as long as the intent is just--the "right" decision almost always depends on the circumstances.
I can be patient, but only to a point. I have a habit of living in the moment and doing what feels good now, instead of delaying gratification for the sake of long term objectives...this is a habit I am trying to break.
I don't generally go out of my way to try to impress people, but I do enjoy being appreciated for my naturally awesome qualities.
Some people have said that I'm a bit unusual...and these are typically the people who know me best.
I am willing to admit that I'm a bundle of contradictions. This doesn't mean I'm two faced or fickle, it means I often understand both sides of the same topic/issue and can see the validity of both. I do have my own views, and many of them I feel very strongly about. However, I do NOT try to push my views onto others and don't like people who do. I DO like to discuss different views in a civil and open minded forum...there's a lot that can be learned this way.
So, a couple things…
I am not interested in random/recreational sex. We do not "swing" or "swap". Sexting is fun in moderation...but bores me really quickly. This isn't all about sex for me...I need to be psychologically and emotionally engaged or I lose interest really quickly.
And…no...I do not want to give you my phone number after 10 one liner messages (actually make an effort to get to know me first).
