- these ))))) are smiles
- I get OD'd by social interaction sometimes, so don't take it personally if I don't respond right away
- don't get scared away by the intensity of this, I'm OK with small talk (not as small as a single hello as a starter, especially if you don't have anything written/no answered questions/no photos)

somewhat of a hippie at heart

long version (honest emotionally vulnerable stuff) (unnecessary to read):
It takes a while for people to get to know me, although I’m pretty outgoing in my own way.
I like making people comfortable in my presence, I care about their wellbeing and can entertain and enrich their lives. I can be observant, perceptive and aware of others
I get attached to people deeply and have a hard time letting go.
It’s difficult for me to say no, I dislike conflict and confrontation, and can have a hard time expressing negative feelings, especially to the people I care about.
I appreciate when people are truly interested in who I am and take time to get to know me, people who are non-judgemental and I can be myself around them, but trust comes with time.
I value deep intimate connections that last for a long time.
I'm an emotional being and appreciate a partner who can ground me.
I truly appreciate men who enjoy the act of giving. enjoy is keyword here. being articulate and able to communicate is important too.
I appreciate being seriously invested in each others’ lives. at times i've been overly invested that way so i am trying to find my balance.
I am independent in my thinking and go about things at my own pace, not very influenced by popular culture. I appreciate good advice, especially if someone sees the opportunity I overlooked.
I also don’t enjoy planning and organizing (anything) so I truly appreciate people who can and like doing that, when it’s needed. I can be spontaneous and impulsive, and feel that I really need to follow these impulses to feel alive.
Tactile, kinesthetic and sensual aspects are important parts of expression of love for me. Being able to express oneself through words can be quite beautiful as well.
