My self-summary
You know those deep philosophical conversations people get into when they're high? That's pretty much me, all the time, when I'm sober.

I love to laugh, and it doesn't take much to make me laugh either, as many people have pointed out. I love irony and puns. I watch the Daily Show when I can and I love Jon Stewart for his quick wit and intellect, but mostly for his puns.

I am very open and honest with how I feel. I am also very trusting of others, being hurt in relationships has not changed that. My past relationships have been a great experience for the most part, so even the bad parts I have learned from and am still open and trusting. I'm also trusting of complete strangers, I tend to see the good in everyone.

Basically I want to save the world and enjoy others who will also be world crusaders and enjoy discussion about life, love, and how to make the world a better place.

The first things people usually notice about me
My laugh.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
the world, politics, the future

how things work, how things should work, how things could work better, how we can make things work better
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I care too much about the percentage match on here.

Some notes about my "upkeep":
I cut my own hair. So if it looks stupid, please don't tell me, either I already know and am anxiously waiting for it to grow out and don't need to be self conscious about it, or I disagree that it looks stupid and don't really care what you think about it.

I have varying amounts of body hair at any time, mostly because I think societal norms are stupid, and partially because of laziness. My armpits start to feel gross, so I'll shave them. Generally my legs are unshaven, unless I feel fancy one day and will shave them as well.

Also, I stopped wearing makeup. I feel a lot more comfortable in my own skin because of these things, so if any of these are a problem for you, we probably will not get along.
