My self-summary
Among friends, I'm known as the life of the party because of my bubbly personality and quick laugh. Staying open and learning are important values for me. Sometimes I trust a little more than I should, but I suppose it's better than the alternative.

While I'm naturally playful and light-hearted, I also have a reflective side and a sharp mind that require regular feeding. Quiet walks, time being still and nurturing touch all keep me balanced. I'm very affectionate and communicative and seek the same in my match - someone with depth who has the skills to build and maintain an intimate connection.

I have done some casual dating and always enjoy good company. Ultimately, though, I'm wired for relationship and am looking for a man who wants the same.
