If you describe yourself as "simple" and consider your most valuable attribute being the enjoyment of laughter -- Do NOT message me. 75% of profiles sound the same in that you are a "simple guy, looking for your best friend, love the outdoors and like to laugh." Boring. Boring. Boring. EVERYONE loves to laugh. Jesus.
Writing these things are difficult in that the way we perceive ourselves isn't how others may perceive us. Today my roommate called me an "asshole" because (according to him) I am smart, good at my job, and particular about things which can be misperceived as cold. I know I can appear misanthropic but I don't believe I am. I dislike folks who take advantage of others who may not be able to stand up for themselves.
I am constantly seeking self improvement both physically and mentally. Working out is important to me. I believe the benefits of working out exceed the aesthetic benefits. I love to challenge myself but I also enjoy taking a break and doing nothing at all. My ideal partner would be someone who could challenge me as well as someone I could enjoy the simple things with. I appreciate confidence but deplore cockiness - a fine line can exist between both. I would like someone who is comfortable in their skin and happy with themselves - who doesn't seek validation through other people.
I prefer someone who would qualify themselves as intelligent and who has an opinion about things. It's nice to talk and learn/grow from one another. As simple as the previous sounds, its not for most people.
Let see, I have 2500 characters remaining to describe myself. I wake up really early for work so I like to be in bed early. I don't watch a lot of tv, in fact, its background noise most of the time. I do like to watch movies or documentaries because I derive some value from it. I prefer winter over summer because I hate to sweat and I like scarves.
That's all for now. Perhaps I'll revisit this at a later date.
Ok - I'm revisiting. While this may be controversial - I'm being honest that I'm not religious nor could I see myself with anyone who is. I believe in a "greater good" and live my life according to my moral compass. I'm turned off by mega churches and gospel music - it works for some but it isnt for me.
