I guess I'll just dive right in..........I prefer people who stand out. Personality, generosity, and sense of humor are huge factors in my attraction to someone.
I know which characteristics others admire in me. But I also recognize my faults. My best skills lie in being able to read, observe and notate other peoples' demeanor and interactions with others. Which is why I'm good at what I do.
I love cooking---Healthy cooking. I can find a paleo alternative for any/every unhealthy food you like. Sarcasm-kinda my thing. I love laughter more than anything in the world. I don't settle for mediocrity. And I understand I'm not everyone's dream girl. I shop too much. I curse more than my mother approves. I argue just to get a cute reaction out of you. I will listen to friends vent and gossip, as that is often therapeutic and raw...But never care to repeat it. I'm told by everyone who knows me well, that I have the mentality of a guy. And it's true.
I over analyze the actions of EVERYONE...Because I want to know why people do what they do. It's a horrible fault. I wear high heels more often than any girl should. My karaoke voice... It sets off car alarms and causes riots in the streets. For that reason, I try to contain my singing to the car. I like wine. I love beer. And wings. And tacos.
I need someone like-minded. Who is physically fit. Whose life doesn't revolve around drinking. Who likes being active. Tubing down boulder creek, hiking horsetooth. Skiing. Rafting. Running. Someone who enjoys going to church on Sundays... And can actually learn and grow from it, rather than drifting off into their own little world. Because this isn't your world. It's Gods world. And there are a lot of other people less fortunate than you. Be a good listener. Be a giver. Be a helper. Society makes it hard to be a good person, so those who are still true to their values, are very attractive to me.
I question the lack of manners amongst the greater population---Please and thank you, it's a pleasure to meet you----And wonder what ever happened to a man offering his seat for a lady nearby. Witnessing a random act of kindness...Absolutely melts my heart. Sadly, it's rare.
Everyone contradicts their own thoughts and beliefs. Everyone makes mistakes. It's only about first impressions to a certain extent. You know what you like, you know what you don't. It's about giving someone a chance, when you deem them worthy. And not wasting their time when it doesn't seem fit. I'm about simplicity these days. And improving myself, first and foremost.
The end. Or the beginning.
