What I'm looking for in a potential partner...
1) I'm not looking for someone exactly like me, BUT (with that said) I can't see having a relationship with someone that has absolutely NO interest in art or music or some other creative interest. It's too much a part of who I am so if going gallery hopping in the Design District on a Saturday night sounds God awful to you...I might not be the girl for you.
2) I'm looking for someone that has a job, a working car and a place to live. It doesn't have to be your dream job or a fancy car. (For logistics...they are a must.) ****Side note: I'm not looking for someone to financially take care of me AND I don't wanna take care of anyone financially either. I want both parties to contribute.****
3) I tend to be attracted to more femme women but (as I've learned) I need to be able to have fun/stupid and serious conversations with you. I can't just look at you...there has to be more than just a "pretty face".
4) You can't make fun of "fat" people or people with "special needs". BIGGEST TURN OFF EVER! (I'm only saying this bc this has happened recently so I figured I'd add this to my list!)
NOW ON TO A LITTLE BIT ABOUT ME
Random facts about me...
my favorite number is 37. there is no reason why...it just is.
anytime i get into an elevator that is dark, has down lights and you can see a muted reflection of yourself in the doors I always always always want to sing Bohemian Rhapsody, for some reason it makes me think of the video.
i like to say literally in an English accent.
i spent the better part of my mid twenties trying to bring the "robot" back
i get bored easily but am easily entertained.
i always refer to myself as a laid back person, but none of my friends would describe me that way. i believe they actually roll their eyes when i say that.
i'm a night person, but i'm also a morning person.
i'm rarely in a bad mood, but when I am I can usually fake it and only take it out on my mother.
i have a degree in both Psychology and Interior Design and a minor in Art and a minor in Economics. the minor in economics is lost on me now. i retained nothing.
i can always imagine the 10 worst things that could happen in any given situation, as well as exit strategies for each.
i miss the darkroom.
i'm clumsy. i can trip over my own feet and i sometimes walk into walls, but generally i'm pretty athletic.
i can be shy at times and when i'm nervous i'm either one of two things (1) you won't even know that i'm nervous or (2) I'm veeeerrryyy awkward.
I talk a lot but there are some days when i have nothing to say. it doesn't mean i'm in a bad mood...it just means i have nothing to say.
The last really fun/stupid conversation i had was about designating the difference (assigning actual number values) between a couple, a few, several and many and the reasons why. Also in that conversation we started a band called Dewy Decimal and The Systems. our groupies were The Card Catalogs. we had a whole marketing strategy planned. they were either going to be the greatest indie band (all girl band/guy singer) of all time or biggest one hit wonder ever. this conversation took place over several games of PhotoHunt.
when i'm in an extremely good mood, i walk to the song "Diamonds on the Soles of her Shoes" in my head.
i think jenny lewis is the end all, be all.
i used to play a pretty mean game of pool...i'm sure i still could, it's gotta be like riding a bike. ((revision: pool is not like riding a bike.))
one of my favorite names of all time is Alice.
