People say that they never have any idea on what they should write in these things, and to a point they are correct. However, it is not that they don't know what to write about themselves, it's more they don't know how to write themselves in a way that makes them look good enough for someone to consider being with them. I could write about a hundred paragraphs on myself, but to be honest, maybe only a fourth of that is actually good stuff about me that people would even consider 'datable', the rest, while not specifically negative, tend to put people off.
For instance, I can put that I am stubborn, manipulative, cunning, at times selfish, obnoxious, blunt, have a hard time trusting people and have a tendency for being a bit emotional- and they would all be true, but that is not exactly how one would sell themselves to another is it?
There are other traits of me that would be better selling points. For example, I am loyal to a fault and I forgive very easily, some say too easily, I am very intelligent (some find this a flaw but I don't), and can act very silly at times. I am there for my friends no matter what, and usually put others before myself.
I could've just listed my good traits and have been done with it, but what's the point in blurring the truth? You are who you are and honestly, if a person can read your faults and think it not worth the time- it probably isn't. If a person can read through it however, and think they can handle it, the relationship can only start off just a tiny bit stronger; that is never a bad thing.
As for other traits, I love science, anime, photography and I pretty much listen to music non-stop. I currently am working towards a degree in Criminology with the intent of becoming a profiler/detective. When I am not working or in school (very rare occurrence indeed) I am usually writing, drawing or talking with my friends.
As for whom I am looking for, just someone nice. One that could be both my best friend and my lover. One to make me laugh and can be there when I need them. Who can respect boundaries and not push when they aren't automatically given what they want. That is pretty much it, nothing too complicated I guess :).
Thank you for viewing my profile and have a good day :),
