i had someone write this part for me a while ago (he had a whole formula and guaranteed results. totally scientific results!! you can guess how well that worked out...) so, here i am again, searching for the magic key words that might catch the eye of someone special. based on my research, i gather i'm supposed to say i love to travel, i'm super adventurous, and i want to be your princess, or something? you should see my face right now. i'm totally princess material.
by this point you should have detected a bit of sarcasm. that's good. the truth is i like travelling in small increments, but i also love being home. (my cat! my stuff! my hammock!) i'm not particularly adventurous, but i am a lot of other awesome things like loyal, honest, funny, smart, creative, patient (unless i'm driving (not a word about my driving. you don't like it, you can walk)), and possibly a bit too enamored of parentheses. still with me? cool.
i am also very low-maintenance. i don't wear makeup and i've been blessed with hair that doesn't need much work to look presentable. i'm most comfortable in pajama pants and flip flops. i'm a little nerdy about certain things, way too passionate about other things, and in complete denial about other other things (narwhals? seriously? no.)
i try to be grateful every day for the many blessings in my life. i believe in keeping things simple, and try to act from a place of compassion. honesty is important, drama is not.
i know this summary won't appeal to everyone. that's the point. i don't want to play the numbers game here. i don't want to play any games, period. (except cards against humanity, or boggle. i will kick your ass in boggle.) if you're still interested, there's a good chance we'll get along. so please, give me a shout. i'm looking forward to hearing from you :)
Side note: It might be helpful/unnecessary to note that I am an introvert. If you're not sure what that means, click below: http://www.16personalities.com/infj-strengths-and-weaknesses
(Wish I'd discovered this a few years earlier)
and finally, even though i know it will be ignored by most: i am looking for a long-term relationship. this means i am genuinely seeking to connect with someone intellectually as well as physically. if all you are looking for is a hookup, please keep moving.
Movies: The Princess Bride, Tommy Boy, Transporter, Grease 2, Amelie, Chocolat, Mallrats, Serenity, Chorus Line, Adventures In Babysitting, 10 Things I Hate About You, etc. Basically anything silly, witty, or pretty to look at. I'm really not entertained by violence and misery. There is too much of that in the world already :/
Music: The most recent addition to my mp3 player is Paolo Nutini. The rest is mostly Jason Mraz, Our Lady Peace, Black Lab, Wham, Movie Soundtracks, and yoga music.
Food: Shorter to list what I don't like. No tomatoes, no seafood (although I try both every once in a while just to make sure). I would also like to note that I haven't eaten French fries since 1999 (stupid bet gone horribly wrong).
you know the appropriate response to "what what"
