I find this dating via Internet a challenge, but here it goes.
I believe that relationships should be built on honesty and openness. I never have thought of myself as beautiful but people have told me that I look striking or attractive and yesterday one of my colleagues said that I "look wild in a good way" (what ever that may mean). I always struggle with maintaining a healthy weight (one of my friends just told me this makes me sound huge. No, I'm not!), but it has more to do with health than anything else because I am pretty much comfortable with my looks/size.
I am probably more reserved than people infer from how I look and it sometimes takes me some time to feel comfortable. Once I do, people usually think that I am smart, very caring and determined, and funny. Some people feel intimidated by me. I am not sure why, but imagine it is my directness and passion for what I believe is right. As far as political ideas: I am likely more to the left than most people reading this profile.
