If I were to be honest, I'd describe myself as "an introvert with good social skills" - I like to meet new people, have good conversations, be "on", but I like to have quiet time with just myself and close friends. I like going out to dinner, drinks, movies (sense of humor and a tolerance for things like "super happy monkey fun bash" appreciated (though I like foreign films and dramas, comedies, unapologetic romances (like "Moonstruck")) and whatnot; and I like staying home, cooking and hanging out with a bottle of wine (or a beer). I'm in a board/card game renaissance - Lunch Money, Paradux, Mancala, Arkham Horror, Fury of Dracula, and Pain Doctors are among a few of the new games I've learned this past year.
What I want is what anyone wants - someone who when I'm having a bad day will a.) show up on my doorstep with an extra large pepperoni and jalepeno pizza, a blender and margarita mix, saying. "I thought you could use this." or b.) let me have my mood on my own, and know when to apply which. I am right in saying everyone wants this, aren't I?
Love poems or declarations of eternal fidelity are discouraged within the first six months of getting to know each other, as are all other over-the-top gestures. I'm pretty low key. Grandness makes my gentle antelope heart quail.
So, that's what I want - a guy who can communicate, laugh, ask my how my day was and be a friend. Oh yeah and someone who's handy around the house and lawn would be great, too :)
