STOP WINKING AT ME IT'S WEIRD AND SHOWS LACK OF EFFORT!
This is my first time online dating. Born and raised in NY. Genuine person. Great sense of intuition. Hopeless romantic - I can't help it. I'm weird and quirky and speak in hyperbole. I'm an extremely passionate person and, though it takes a lot for me to be fully invested, once I am, I will stick it out and never ever give up. There is always a different way, a different approach, or a different solution. Kind of like this quote from one of my favorite movies, closer:
dan: and you left him, just like that?
alice: it's the only way to leave. i don't love you anymore. goodbye.
dan: supposing you do still love them?
alice: you don't leave.
dan: you've never left someone you still love?
to me, it is that simple. i refuse to not fight for love. Additionally (and as cheesy as it sounds), I am never REALLY attracted to someone past a superficial level until I know them on the inside. There has to be that connection. Someone who "gets it" the way I get it. Get it?
At this point in my life I've had various serious relationships. I am ready to find someone I can actually see myself with for the long haul. Without love, life is meaningless (to me).
I'm sarcastic, often sardonic with a dark sense of humor. I don't take myself too seriously at all but it is sometimes hard to tell if I'm joking or not. I'm a sensitive, empathetic person, but only few see that because from the outside (I've been told) I can sometimes appear aloof.
I'm self-aware, confident and I persevere. i'm honest-often to a fault. Never two faced--I'm the same person no matter where I go or who I am with and could not be with someone who doesn't appreciate that quality, even if it sometimes makes situations "uncomfortable." I'd rather be myself than pretend. I have trouble with certain social norms (like having to stop and chat with someone you don't want to talk to, why can't we just not?)
I DETEST clubs, the people in them, and everything they represent from a superficial to a deep, deep level.
I never have and never will be afraid to be who I am.
