"The universe isn't unhappy, it's simply in a state that is subject to constant change. Our suffering is only in that we try and create permanence in an ever-changing reality that has none."
However, you're here to figure some things out about me!
Life's too short to hide yourself from being known. Our flaws define us as much as our strengths don't.
-I am a human being - Just like everyone else
-I'm an INTJ - works at work, not so much outside of work. Rationality doesn't give too many warm fuzzies.
-I am ridiculously warm. You would not snuggle me in summertime.
-If you get irrationally upset about some things on a fairly regular basis we will not work.
-I need to help. I show love through service and if it's not appreciated or valued I will feel unsafe with further emotional investment.
-I do not enjoy arguing about senselessly about things. I understand there is a 'conflict mountain' for some subjects, but if the points are made and the arguments have merit, and the conversation is going nowhere, I will make this fact prevalent and then resign.
-I do not like getting crafty with things. This goes back to the INTJ bit... I'm a pretty functional person. I do appreciate visual beauty/quality though, I just do not appropriate time to develop the skill sets if I'm not doing them with someone else. If I don't like it, I want a buddy system. That makes it good.
-I am very uncomfortable with uncertainty until I have an appropriate sample size (re:probability of outcome)
-If something stresses me out I need to resolve it ASAP.
-I have high expectations of myself which cause me to push myself to do things I don't want to do, mainly because the reasons why I shouldn't aren't substantial enough. RE: higher education, picking up slack at work for others and covering up for them.
-I don't like collecting stuff. Most material things don't really hold much meaning or importance to me if they don't offer up some functionality or make my life easier in a way.
-I suck at decorating
-Logical and reasonable...
-Honest to a fault
-Exceptionally appreciative of anything that supplements or makes up for the flaws above. I love artsy types and a woman who can make a house into a home
-Adaptive and inventive
-Can write you a love song and play/sing it for you
-Recognizes patterns and can correct or pull them out and make them obvious so we can laugh at them.
-Has a cuddle quota that must be met.
-More than capable of being a dummy about something really simple just because it's funny.
-Really, really ridiculously silly. This might be a flaw.
-Will not end up an overweight 40 year old because I refuse to let it happen. I want arms like the guy from Thor, working on it...
-Has all the gear and the enthusiasm for extended hikes/camping trips/wilderness survival
-Will never be financially irresponsible
-Will cook, serve, and clean the dishes if he has someone to talk with.
-Can learn how to do most things
-Will remember all the dumb things you like (toothpaste brands, favorite cereals, preferences for detergents etc etc) because it's important.
-Can fix your computer
-Won't ever be your deadbeat ex boyfriend.
What I'm looking for: Someone who craves knowledge and understanding, takes good care of their self, has their life together or at least pointed towards a goal/dream, and is able to bust my chops on the regular with a smile on their face.
