Frankly, I don't know how to be anybody else but myself. It's an odd statement, but I think it's necessary to put it out there. When I find something funny, I'm going to laugh. If something upsets me, I'm not ashamed to shed a tear or two, no matter the context or the audience. Yep, you guessed it - I wear my heart on my sleeve and when I fall for someone, I am loyal until the very end.
Generally, I'm pretty outgoing and enjoy meeting new people, seeing new things, and engaging in new activities. Sometimes I can be shy in large groups or around strangers but I do warm up, sometimes it just takes a little bit. When I'm not caught up in the daily grind, I enjoy being outside. It could be as simple as sipping a glass of wine on the porch, or jumping in a boat and going waterskiing. I also like dabbling in some hiking, as well.
When it comes to dating and relationships, I'm just going to be frank. I'm looking for the real deal. Someone who is willing to meet me half-way, work with me on my short-comings, and, really, just be nice to me. I consider myself an affectionate, accepting, loving, and supportive individual and I cannot emphasize how nice it would be to get that in return. I'm not looking for some sort of Prince Charming to sweep me off my feet; just a normal, good-natured man who has good days and bad days, but wants to share both those kinds of days with me for the long-term. Also, I recognize what I'm looking for takes time, so even though I wear my heart on my sleeve I enjoy taking the time to get to know a person before jumping in.
Yep. That about sums it up, I think. :)
