I've made the mistake in the past of trying too hard to make someone else happy before myself. It's time for me to do what's best for me and hopefully meet someone who want to make me as happy as I make them. I'm looking for someone who has a head on their shoulders, who's serious about their future, but can laugh at themselves and joke about their flaws. It sounds cliche, but a great sense of humor and a little bit of sarcasm. Someone who loves their friends like family, and family like friends.
And someone who wants to go explore what DC/VA/MD has to offer. Why is it like pulling teeth to ask someone to go to the aquarium or a museum?
