I grew up in NY, and for the most part, I'd like to think that I have an east coast mentality, although my friends back home joke about me being really LA, since I moved out here. In terms of my personality, I'm pretty much a mixed bag. I can be a lot of different things, but one thing that's pretty constant is I have an all or nothing type attitude, and I'm passionate about whatever I'm doing. I'm looking for a girl that is motivated and goal driven, but not to the point where she is tedious and overly regimented. Someone that knows what they want in life and strives for it, but also appreciates the value of life, and lives every day like it's their last (lol that sounded corny as hell). Someone that is drama free, and does not dwell on the small and insignificant things in life. Someone that is playful, with a sense of humor that is always turned on, always finding the humor in different situations. Along with that, someone that is not uptight or overly politically correct. For example, if you are offended by a Sasha Baron Cohen movie, then we probably won't get along. Most importantly, somebody that speaks their mind, and doesn't just say what they think other people want to hear. In other words, someone with a real New York or east coast edge to them. Yet at the same time they should be pleasant, and not look to alienate people when there's no need for it. In terms of interests, I don't feel that two people have to be exactly alike, as long as their dispositions and general outlooks on life are similar.
