I surround myself with people who make me laugh. I love telling jokes and being sarcastic. Humor, friends and family are what get me through life. I'm probably at my loudest when I laugh. Although I try to laugh daily, I take life seriously. But to see how I take life seriously, one first has to make me laugh!
Besides a sense of humor, I'm attracted to people with strong convictions. I won't necessary agree with your perspective on many topics, but at least have reasons for believing what you do. Intelligence is really important to me. There is so much knowledge to be gained in this world that lacking the curiosity to explore and question what we are taught, both socially and academically, is a shame. As the previous sentences allude to, philosophy is one of my favorite disciplines to study.
I mostly write complete sentences when I text. If I make a grammatical mistake after hitting the "send" button, I'll send another text, even if it's 5 or 10 minutes after the fact. I enjoy learning about other people's hobbies. Even if your hobby is watching mold grow, I'm interested in listening to you for hours about the topic as long as you show the same respect to me in regards to my passions.
Passions of mine include watching documentaries, reading autobiographies, attending sporting events and listening to country music. Sushi and coffee are my guilty pleasures. I want to travel and be lucky enough to take part in at least some of the many cultures found in this world. Italy, Ireland and India are at the top of my must visit countries. I want to taste the cuisine, study the history and discover places that are not listed in travel books.
