How does a person describe themselves to other people, honestly and efficiently? I will give it my best shot.
I move around a lot, always have, even when it wasn't within my control. Maybe I'm a nomade. I am settled in Montréal now. I love this city. I love this province. I feel the urge to stay here, but miss travelling.
I know my own worth, most of the time. Sometimes I forget what I have to offer, and thus don't create that in my own life. But I do my best to maintain certain boundaries with those around me. I like to be treated a certain way, with respect. I don't ask a lot, and I'm pretty flexible.
I love to cook for other people, not so much myself though. I eat better when I have other people to cook for. I have had problems with eating disorders since I was a child. It took me a while to accept that I had no choice, I had to eat to function. It is the fuel for our minds and bodies. Finally I accepted that fate and learned a tremendous amount about nutrition.
I love learning. I just absorb information. I am proud of my intelligence and memory. I don't believe that I work my brain enough, or use my intelligence to my benefit. I just hope it will still be there when I get it together and can benefit from it. I appreciate intelligence and a will for learning, in other people; I cherish it even. I love nothing more than doing independant research on a topic and debating it later with someone else who has also studied the subject.
My biggest and I'm sure most rewarding aspiration for my future, is to become some sort of communication link between warring countries, to eliminate the necessity of war. To find other ways to resolve problems. Use alternative resources. Change the way people think about getting and doing what they want, with no regard to the outcome for everyone involved. When you make enough people realize something, it is impossible to ignore, because once you know something, you can never go back to not knowing.
I am interested in both sides of the sexual coin. I am attracted to women and men equally. I feel the need for interaction and romance and sexuality with both. I find gay men the best of friends and most fun people to be around. I am intrigued and enamoured by transvestites and transexuals. If only I had to courage to express my own tendencies, as they do.
Socializing can be difficult for me at times. Depending on the environment, I can be a little out there, or really quiet and shy. People usually misunderstand me, which is frustrating. I like open people, and open minded helps. My best friendships and relationships have been with really unique people. My best friend in the world, suggested that I look for some grunge people. She believes that that is more my style, and I would have more in common with this genre of human being. I love dreads and mohawks, and tattoos and piercings. I love outgoing and silly people. I love to laugh, but have an interesting sense of humour.
Everything else that you need to know about me, will come with time. Time is the best gift we have been given in this life. Time is on our side. We can repeat, relearn, redo. We get so many chances in this life.
Have a good day!!!
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
Well, my perfect date would start sooner than the actual rendez-vous. I would pamper myself for several hours before even leaving the house. I nice hot shower, washing my hair with whatever the latest best thing is. Afterwards covering myself in cream for moisture and comfort.
I would dress in a cute outfit, (which I would have prepared ahead of time), probably a flowing dress with heels, (low cut, maybe sphagetti strap). Make up and hair are standard, but all together the process makes for a special day as well as evening. I would hope that my date were doing the same thing. Primping shows interest in the upcoming event.
I would insist on meeting my date at the destination, to have all the time I need to prepare mentally. It would be ideal if both people show up 15 minutes early, so we catch each other just showing up, a bit off guard.
The perfect reaction from my date would be for him/her to take both my hands in his/hers, look me in the eye (after checking me out of course), and tell me that I look beautiful.
We would then walk into the dining room of some really chique restaurant. We would be seated of course and offered a bottle of wine, which we would accept. The best fun can be had will sipping on wine and looking over a very different, very expensive menu. We would finally agree on mostly seafood, but several platters of different items. Of course we would share everything, feeding each other whatever we loved the best. Just a table covered in yummy food, two interesting people enjoying themselves and each other, laughing through a memorable meal.
Afterwards, we would calm down with coffee and desert. The conversation at this point would probably be more serious, more direct and informational.
About an hour after we have finished eating we would make our way to a very special place. A race car facility where we could take some cars out and race around a track. (Of course I would need a change of clothes, but ever resourceful, I would have them handy in a decorative bag that I took with me.) I don't care how many people are racing with us, as long as I know which car my date is in. I could also do this for hours.....like 5-8 hours. But I'm sure we would be limited to whatever they would allow us, and a certain financial budget. I would prefer at least 2-3 hours.
After the huge adrenaline rush, we would obviously need some more calm time, and rehydration, so I would suggest a nice long walk, hopefully on a beach or in the forest. (At least a garden or park type place....swings are fun.) For hydration.....well, maybe champagne, cause I was thinking ice cream, but I don't think I could eat ice cream after the days activities, but then again, champagne doesn't actually hydrate you. Water would be the best choice, but it isn't the most romantic.
At the end of the night, when everyone is fatigué, we would end our soirée on one of our doorsteps with a kiss
