I don't think people are good at describing themselves - so I've
taken quite a few tests and answered lots of questions. Then again
- I not so sure about Mr. Robot’s analytical abilities. ;-]

if an intelligent, stable - girl / woman were also inclined then
great. Or if someone is looking for a lighter type of commitment -
then seeing where things go.
Not being crazy and burning my house down would be another plus.
My personality profile says "less compassionate"? - "Less well
mannered'?? It used to say "more friendly to strangers" etc.. I
don't think I've changed anything. ??

I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Taking charge and getting people to pull together.
Injecting humor in tense situations.
Having a great time in bed. ;-]
