Like a good book that I need to read slowly, romantically, I am pretty much into what I have heard people refer to as the "slow burn." I never know how I truly feel about a person at first. There are of course initial impressions which are often neutral, though they occasionally can also hit the more extreme ends for the emotional spectrum; and though sometimes it may be wise to listen to these gut reactions, most of the time I prefer to let any preconceptions die down so that, hopefully, I can take in a more true reading of a person. You never see the best stuff at first. And in turn, I am a person who it takes time to know. I don't know why that is, but I think I prefer it that way.
My main passions are music and literature. I play the French horn and enjoy reading and writing.
I also love the outdoors, so I am always up for a hike. a camping trip, a cycling adventure, a running extravaganza, a rock climbing party, a kite flying date. You name it, I probably wouldn't mind giving it a try. Board games are great too. I'll give you a run for your money in a game of Trivial Pursuit. I also enjoy playing Scrabble, Monopoly (if we have the three years that it seems is required to finish a game), and "Apples to Apples," to name just a few.
