I want a lot out of life while making every attempt not to take myself too seriously. Also, while having my own seems increasingly remote,
I enjoy kids a lot and while it´s not a requirement, I would be very open to a mate with children. In addition, while I'm certainly interested in finding a long term partner, friendships are very important as well, even if things don't turn romantic. I have two good friends I met via OKCupid.
Also good at listening, especially when I remember to do it, and procrastinating, even when I don't remember to do it.
