My self-summary
You "love to laugh"? Inconceivable!

I believe in love despite having no idea what it really means.

I'm a work in progress - not perfect by any measure. I am certainly an acquired taste, but I have a lot to offer.

My real passions are intimate friendships, non-feline animals, evocative stories (films, games, books, music), "cool" cars, lewd or witty humor, curiosity and intellect, cleanliness and constant improvement (home and self), physical affection - and above all, proud, protective, supportive, sustaining love.

I'm looking for someone to spend the rest of my life with.

I'll leave you with that. INFJ

On a typical Friday night I am
Either playing Xbox, doing laundry, going to bed early, or begrudgingly going out to hang somewhere.

I believe in love despite having no idea what it really means.
