My self-summary should consist of me going on and on about how wonderful I am and how much my personality would entice you should you get to know me, and I suppose I should take the time to ramble on and on about what a fantastic friend, lover, or whatever I'd be.
Sadly, that's not the case. I've got skeletons in my closet, I am a regular person doing the best with what I have, and there's probably a special place in 'hell' reserved for me, should one believe in that kind of thing (not for me, though.) I have good traits, just like any other guy, and I have not-so-good traits scattered throughout as well.
When I say something, chances are that it's true (unless, of course, I'm being facetious or lying. OR sometimes, if I'm observing social etiquette to prevent a scene from happening), and that's why I'm saying it--chances also are, one might not like what one hears all the time.
That's the nature of truth.
I'm a loyal friend, an even more loyal lover, and I'm very passionate about a variety of subjects; although, sometimes I have to keep reigns on my feelings to keep from becoming too vehement. When it reaches that point, I usually just shut my eyes, take a deep breath, and approach the subject from a different perspective, as I believe there are more than 1 or 2 perspectives to any given situation.
In summation, my self-summary would be seemingly less than appealing, but the point I'm trying to make is that one can't summarize oneself in a little box on the internet.
The "message" tab is in the upper right-hand corner of this little place called 'mine' on OkCupid.com.
Feel free to use it. I may like you; I may not, and vice-versa.
