My boundaries will remain firm on this. Please proceed accordingly and I will return your kindness and respect. I promise I'm not as serious as this makes me sound.******
I am a funny, passionate, caring, loyal, and out going person.
I don't care if you drink or smoke pot as long as you do it in moderation. I personally want my life to consist of more than that.
I'm kinda goofy and nerdy with a dirty sense of humor. I think life is way too short to worry about being cool, so I just try to enjoy it (this includes occasionally acting ridiculous, just because it's fun).
I like arts and crafts, thrift stores, nature, and random adventures. I enjoy singing, especially karaoke. I love dancing (even though I'm mostly just doing dorky moves like the lawnmower and the sprinkler). I am the kind of person who will sing or dance when the mood strikes no matter where I am. I'm also a bit of a museum and history addict.
My friends all say I'm "down" because I'm always ready to try something new. Even if it sucks, it's all life experience in my book. I love the feeling of learning something new or seeing things from a different perspective.
I think I'll always be a work in progress physically, spiritually, and emotionally, but I feel I'm valuable and worthwhile as I am. In my mind, growth isn't toward a static point. It is dynamic and constant. If you think you know everything, it's a sure sign you've got a lot to learn ;).
I pride myself on finding the good in things and people and being truly grateful for what I have.
Things I have learned on this wild dating journey so far:
I'm cheerful and optimistic. If you find that annoying or exhausting, I'm not the one for you.
Also, I'm a happy, accepting, and peaceful person. I practice meditation and mindfulness. I prefer someone who appreciates peace and happiness as much as I do.
I don't mind if you have issues, we all do. I just ask that you're proactive about dealing with them instead of staying stagnant in a place or mindset you don't like. I've been weighed down by such things before and I learned that it's incredibly frustrating and bad for my mental health.
Some traits I value are openess, compassion, communication, honesty, faithfulness, positivity, understanding, patience, willingness/ability to compromise, a forgiving nature, and assumption of good intentions.
I make mistakes, but I own them and work hard to take responsibility for my part in things. My ideal partner would be able to own their own shit as well.
Nobody can be perfect or right all the time. We all need room to be human.
