I'm honest, sincere, passionate, and fun to be around. I like to have fun and stay positive even if things aren't going as planned. I like to joke around and I have a great sense of humor that's usually sarcastic, flirtatious, or quick witted, without being rude or insulting, inappropriate, or demeaning. I fit in and get along well with just about anyone, as long as they aren't rude, disrespectful, or inconsiderate. I guess I'm kind of old fashion in some ways, I'll open your door for you, pull out your chair, carry your bags, give you my jacket if you're cold or just need it to cover your hair in the rain, and always protect you if you need or want it. I will also listen to what you have to say, encourage you to tell me what you think and how you feel, and talk to you about my feelings as well. Communication is key in a relationship and good communication can save a lot of time, frustration, aggravation, anger, hurt feelings, and the relationship itself. I stand up for what I believe but am open minded and willing to listen as well, and I have no problem admitting when I'm wrong. Honesty is another equally important characteristic I'm looking for. Honesty shouldn't be hard, or something you have to struggle with, if it is maybe you're in the wrong relationship. Without honesty you can't have trust, and you need to have complete trust in each other to have the passion, the desire, the love, the feelings that can only be felt, not written about or described. And of course there has to be a physical attraction also, the first thing anyone notices about someone else is how they look and if there's no attraction then it's not going to work. Honesty also covers not pretending to be someone you're not, be yourself and everything will be a lot more enjoyable.
I'm very family oriented and think family is important in everyone's life. I'm close to my family, although not as much as in the past but would still drop everything if they needed me to and know they (some of them) would do the same. I wouldn't expect anyone else to be any different. However, not everyone has a family that is understanding, supportive, and non judgmental, and I wouldn't make assumptions about anyone who is not close to their family.
