I am study in contradictions; honest yet private, kind but assertive, empathetic but realistic. I am very independent but I do try to pick my battles wisely. I trust my instincts and intellect so I make decisions with confidence -- especially b/c I do tend to over-think things a bit :). I am fiercely loyal and unconditionally supportive after my trust and respect have been earned (not a particularly easy feat). I like to explore novel ideas and possibilities and follow tangents wherever they may lead.
I am not really looking for anything specific in my potential partner -- the attraction and dynamics of any relationship are just too complex & unpredictable to reduce to a checklist of attributes & traits. I do know that I am not interested in guys who are arrogant, disrespectful to others, possessive or have anger management issues.
I am looking for friends to have fun with around Naples / Fort Myers. I’m open-minded & up for almost any new experience so if there’s somewhere you’ve wanted to check out or get the sudden urge to do (bowling, roller-skating etc.), I’m the go to girl for company. I like going to concerts (alt/rock), chilling out at a coffee shop, playing board games, going to special events & having conversations about anything.
Seriously, I’ll talk about anything from snails, the meaning of life, currents events, Gossip Girl, to quantum physics. No worries if I don’t the slightest thing about what you want to chat about, I’ll probably just ask you about b/c I like to learn. But sometimes I’ll just comment on the topic very authoritatively & often convincingly b/c I’m playful like that. I’ll usually remember to tell you that I made it all up before you repeat it w/ confidence to anyone else (there’s a story there about my mom’s white lie re all the vitamins being in the bread’s crust that I believed whole-heartedly for 22 years, & most of my law school classmates probably still do . . .).
I wasn’t kidding about really liking to talk & going off on tangents so conversations with me can end up going on for a very long time because I usually listen more than I talk.
