I'm shy, and a little awkward, and a lot clumsy. I can't dance to save my life, but I will. People usually laugh around me, whether it%u2019s with or at is inconsequential. I'm terribly sarcastic, but sincere. I'm a hopeless idealist in most aspects of life. I've tried the secrecy thing only to find that honesty is always better. I like to think of myself as pretty smart, but that has gotten me into trouble. If I'm on your side, I'm there for life. I believe in people, sometimes to a fault. I listen more than I talk. I'm looking for somebody real. I'd rather you'd be so honest you make me cry then lie to my face to see me smile. Though I'd prefer you make me smile with honesty. One thing I%u2019ve learned is that chemistry can%u2019t be faked and admiration can%u2019t be hurried and for me, they go hand in hand. I don%u2019t trust quickly and I tend to be cautious and picky. You can't be easily offended. Wit is a huge turn-on. What good is life if you can't laugh? Especially at yourself. I'd prefer someone who shows interest in things bigger than their own self. I want someone passionate, and who has direction. I am looking for someone who makes the choice to live life above the surface with courage, with passion, despite the inevitable pain. There is solace and humor lurking there, to share together.
