I am independent and hope you agree that it would be better to be alone than with someone that does not make you happy. Basically, I am an open book and value honesty above all. The friendships in my life are highly valued and I don't take anything for granted. Yes, I do have high standards, but am not a snob at all. I am willing to laugh at myself (daily) and will be the first to point out a few of my quirks. Yes, I do crack myself up and love the imperfections we all have as it is what makes us unique. I think chemistry is important in a serious relationship. However, looks are only a very minor part of who we are as individuals so you have to appreciate what is inside above all.
