I am goofy and social and love to go out, but I also love to stay at home and read, watch movies, or work on an art project. I need a good balance to stay sane, and I look for the same quality in a partner. I want someone who can cut loose and have fun, but also has an intellectual and analytical side. I was a double major in English and Philosophy, so it's important to me that anyone I go out with can hold his own and add to any discussion. An ideal partner would be someone I could talk to for hours... perferably over a glass of coffee or wine. =) I love to laugh, and I love goofy people. I love to be around creative people, whether it's cooking a beautiful meal or writing a short story. I'm interested in other cultures, and I'd like to find someone who wants to see the world... maybe we could explore together. I don't like bullies, and I root for the underdog. I believe in speaking my mind and working to resolve conflict through respectful conversation; it can be impassioned, but it needs to be respectful. At the end of the day, I want to have fun with my partner, trust them, and feel like we're enriching each other's lives.
