I am a soft-spoken introvert. I love to read and I love to laugh. I'm one of those people that secretly yearn to try new things, yet can't really lose my shyness long enough to give things a try. I smile and laugh at corny jokes. I'm greatful for my friends and family who make daily life worth enduring. I am friendly to everyone, but have a tight-knit group of friends. In a man, I want humor, confidance, understanding, and respect. Those traits are probably the basics that any woman would ask for.
