I'm a consummate optimist who tries to find the value in every experience. The one thing we know instantly about everyone is that no one is perfect. With that thought, I find it better to focus on the good in people. There may be no perfect people, but there people who are perfect for one another.
People tend to think I have a serious demeanor at first glance, but I have a huge sense of humor and generally have a smile on my face in the presence of others. I'm goofy, sarcastic, and very quick witted so you can't be stuffy if you're going to deal with me. I enjoy surrounding myself with positive people who want something out of life and aren't afraid or adverse to working for it.
If there is anything serious about my personality it's probably my intolerance for negative people and those that speak ill about others behind their backs. I'll kindly excuse myself and, if the behavior is persistent and habitual, I'll simply distance myself from that person permanently.
I don't have a set guideline for what I'm looking for. I think we all seek qualities such as like honest, caring, considerate, etc., but there are a few things that generally attract me. The first is intelligence. I'm looking for someone to commit to long term and part of any commitment is communication. I'm very open with people about myself and my motivations so I have to be able to have an intelligent conversation with the woman I spend my time with. I can't describe how great it is to hear a woman speak and be able to articulate and intelligently engage in any variance of subjects. The second is her appearance, and I don't mean it in the traditional sense of the context. I mean it as far as I like a woman who is comfortable enough in her own skin that she doesn't feel the necessity to constantly wear makeup and be completely done up for the simplest of tasks. I want a woman I can hit the town with as well as just sitting back relaxing. All of our looks will fade, but character only gets brighter.
Random belief: Great achievements are nothing more than a compilation of much smaller successes. Focusing on the details allows us to see a bigger picture with much better clarity
