I am perceived as being tough because I'm a lawyer and I fight hard for my clients, but inside I am incredibly sensitive. I love to laugh... a sense of humor is important to me. I love to be around people who are interested in many things and who have a natural curiosity and wonder about the world. I believe that having a good disposition and a positive outlook are both infectious, and I function best when I am around people who help me be my best and whom I will to be their best. In my experience, shared interests, thinking about others first, being honest but thoughtful, and compromising -- are the 4 elements to long and happy relationships. Is there anyone out there who feels the same?
