As cliche or as simple it may sound, I just was an honest person. Someone who isn't trying to come across as something or someone they're not. Let your personality show the real you. I believe that's the best foundation any type of relationship.
My personality, though shy at first, is what sticks out. I am by nature reserved, trying to soak in everything, but once I am comfortable, people notice my warm, caring, and inviting personality.
