"Momma didn't raise a princess, she trained a Valkyrie."
I'm a goofy introvert. Sometimes I hide away with books or Netflix for several weeks, and sometimes I have a busy, full social life. I am happy with either. I tend to be extremely awkward, sometimes coming off as cold, with new people; however, I like to goof off and laugh when I'm comfortable. I've also been told that my formal manner of speaking is off putting and/or snobby, but I'm just not into slang and I use limited 'text speak'.
I want to travel the world. I've been to Japan twice and loved it. Scotland is next on the list. It would be awesome to share a love of travel with a special person! I don't do mushy, lovey-dovey stuff well but, that said, I feel deeply and am extremely loyal when I give my heart. I expect the same in return. I'm not interested in casual sex and am looking to date with the possibility of a long-term relationship if I click with the right someone. I am a monogamist and don't want an open or polyamorous relationship- no judgement if you do, but I've tried it and it wasn't my thing. I'm also happy to make new friends.
What do I like in a man? Primarily a good personality, I'll pass on the generic douchey, copy-paster. A good sense of humor and a love of life and travel are also huge bonuses. I'm a nerd (Firefly, Game of Thrones, Doctor Who are some shows I've enjoyed) and would like to be able to share that delightful geek world with my significant other. A guy that catches my eye must be a reader, books are very important to me and sometimes I become an awesome hermit for several weeks and pretty much read constantly. I'm a fan of confidence in a man too; a man that knows what he wants and goes after it is very hot.
As far as looks go? I'm all over the map, but there are a few things I'm certain to find physically attractive: tall men, nice shoulders/arms, and tattoos.
I think we're here for a good time, not a long time. However, practicalities must be taken care of! My great dream is to be an author that can support myself with income from my books. Unfortunately, writing has to take a backseat while I push forward with a reliable source of income. I'm a member of a paranormal research and investigation team. No, we don't use proton packs. ;)
