You should message me if
You're the kind of person who is serious but doesn't take herself too seriously. You're open to an adventure. You consider other points of view, while also having your own beliefs which you've acquired through life experience and introspection.

You're down-to-earth, open-minded, considerate of others, and maybe even sassy. You're happy with who you are. You can laugh at yourself and can poke fun at me. You feel strongly about issues and have opinions about the state of the world. You're compassionate.

I don't smoke, I don't do drugs, and I only drink occasionally. I'd prefer it if you didn't smoke (sorry, just not a fan of smelling like an ashtray, nor of kissing one). If you find yourself needing to get inebriated in order to have a good time, we probably won't be a good match.
