I am a dreamer who can always find the humor in things. I love to laugh. Sometimes, my dry humor can get me in trouble with other people but that's because they don't understand that is how I demonstrate my appreciation for them. I try to see the good in events.
I value intelligence and imagination to the highest degree. Considering how I was reared and the fact that I was basically an only child, I had to learn how to entertain myself. I believe, if past lives really do exist, I must have been some storyteller. No matter the occasion, whether I'm at work or waiting in line at the store, I am always telling myself stories. As I am in my early-mid twenties, it has taken some time to realize that it is a part of who I am, as well as who I am not, what I want, and what I don't want.
When I was in eighth grade, the other kids pointed out how sometimes I only listened to their conversations, not really participating. The art teacher heard their observations and said, "She sees and hears more than you will ever know." That comment has stuck with me, even years later when I actually participate in conversations. Human behavior, personalities, and interactions interest me. The concept of morality, mainly good and evil, and love are all wrapped up in this. On any given day, I like having discussions with another person about this stuff. Granted, it isn't like we will ever have true answers, but I think it are the stories and experiences that count more than the absolute philosophies and concepts.
Besides all of these deep thoughts, I have also been known to jump up and down in glee at Harry Potter premieres, when two characters on a TV show (coughcoughBonescoughcough) get together, and when I move forward with my life. I have also been known to randomly start stories over text messages with a few select people, who usually participate.
If you haven't figure it out yet, I am a complete nerd. Yes, so it be. There is also a side of me that is quite sensible. I am dedicated to my health, whether it be the food I eat or the strenuous workouts I engage in. I do have a mediation/problem solving career, a Bachelor's Degree in said career, and manage to pay my bills on time. Once I get make more money and move up in my career, I would like to travel around the world.
As for what I am looking for, it has taken some hard lessons and considerations to realize what type of man I can actually consider having a serious relationship with. As I said before, conversation is important to me. That being said, I am quite fond of dry humor and sarcasm. I come from a family of people whose careers made them tough and witty. It was bound to happen that I would end up like them. Words are only words, and that is the moral of the story.
I am trying to find someone who won't run away at the first signs of trouble; someone who cares about his health and appearance, but knows when to play in the mud and get dirty; someone who isn't afraid to show love out in the open; someone who appreciates communication, honesty, and creativity. I want someone who can be a best friend as well as my significant other, an equal. I know people of both sexes hate that word, 'equal', being thrown out when it comes to a couple in a relationship. Yet, I don't think I will feel at home in a relationship if it isn't 'equal' in all of the various ways. My old math teacher once explained negative multiplication to a class of high school students by putting it under a relationship
example. (Positive times negative equals a failed and negative relationship; positive times positive equals a successful and positive relationship, etc). I want the next relationship I am in a positive one, with equal amounts of giving and taking compassion, love, support, laughing, etc. I don't want any one to be the 'breadwinner' or anything.
Finally, I think people should strive for happiness in every arena in their lives. Too many people are lying to themselves in circumstances where they think they are captives and are not happy at all. You have this life to live. Why not spend it happily?
As for movies, I am a large fan of comedies, romantic comedies, sci-fi/fantasy action (ex: Underworld), and books-made-into-movies. I'm not a fan of the "gore and guts" horror films where its only purpose is to get as much blood and death on film.
I don't have cable. I don't need it. I prefer TV on DVD, and the shows I watch that are running are accessible through the internet or iTunes. I still watch Charmed and Buffy the Vampire Slayer, but as for still running shows, I love Bones, Saturday Night Live, New Girl, the Vampire Diaries, and Trueblood.
Music: I'm more of a fan of songs than bands. Though I am favoring Taylor Swift and Breaking Benjamin right now.
Food. . . ask any girl and she'll tell you she loves food and wishes she could eat all the damn time. Yup. For me, I wish I could gorge out on chocolate, peanut butter, pastas, chicken, pizza, ice cream, ice cream cake, hashbrowns, hamburgers, and mexican pizzas. I even love salad, peas, and fruits a little too much. The only things I refuse to eat are seafood and anything that can be classified as "EWWW, BUG!" when it is alive. Just don't tell me I'm eating goat intestines, though.
