Wikipedia definition of extroversion--totally me:
Extraverts tend to enjoy human interactions and to be enthusiastic, talkative, assertive, and gregarious. They take pleasure in activities that involve large social gatherings, such as parties, community activities, public demonstrations, and business or political groups. They tend to be energized when around other people.
Travels: done the backpacking around Europe several times... sleeping on trains, hostels, railway stations. I've been to some countries that a lot of Americans have never even heard of. I love entering into a different world and culture and definitely prefer to experience life in other countries as locals do. When I can't actually go to other places I enjoy going to ethnic festivals locally... Oktoberfest, Indian Holi, Greek Festival, Native American Pow Wow, Russian Festival
I'm fluent in several languages....English, German and Russian... and have also studied Italian, French and Spanish. I've lived abroad for more than 10 years. I grew up with my German mother and spent all of my childhood summers in Germany. In my 20's I lived in Italy for 2 years and then later spent 5 years living in Russia.
Looking for: I vacillated between putting "dating" or "relationship". I'm eventually looking for a LTR, but not everyone I communicate with has to be a potential LTR. I definitely don't just want to be with someone, so I can be with someone and think I can be quite happy just casually hanging out and having fun with someone.
Compliments people have made me: vivacious, vibrant, inviting energy, draw people to me, wicked efficient, organized, great mother, brave
Recently a very intuitive, insightful friend of a friend described me this way:
Sensual, loyal, funny, playful, enthusiastic, self-sustaining, not needy, able to listen, able to give solid input, fabulous sounding board, tremendous capability, comfortably got stuff in place, willing to: "If you just give me the project, I'll take charge of it and make it happen for us", strong, confident, with an incredible magnetism.
Thought I would just post it and see who it speaks to.
Coffee or a drink...just being around each other for half an hour is a good way to figure out if there's chemistry worth pursuing. I'm big on energy and am really trying to trust my intuition. We can both be nice, normal people, but just not click... and that's OK.
