The one thing I am passionate about...
A few of the things that I am most passionate about are music, movies, and creative writing. I have spent a lot of time writing poetry, short stories, and other pieces over the years as a hobby of mine and sometimes dream of it becoming more, though realistically it probably never will. I am passionate about spending time with friends and family and trying to help those in need whenever I possibly can. In general, I am just very passionate about life and find that everyday holds such amazing promise if you are willing to accept it. Like everyone I sometimes get lost in sadness, but I usually find myself more passionate that most people.
I typically spend my leisure time
I love spending time with my dog, playing computer games, and watching movies. These things are what I most often do during my leisure time, but I also enjoy reading, exercising, and spending time with my friends and family. I also spend a lot of time writing, though it depends on when inspiration strikes!
The most influential person in my life has been
I am looking for a genuinely good person who shares many of the same beliefs that I do. This is not to say that they always have to agree with me by any means, but it is my opinion in life that the best relationships come from people who share similar core values and beliefs. I am looking for someone who is genuine and not fake, who doesn't lie about or is ashamed about who they are. I want to meet someone whom I can trust and give myself to completely. Someone whom I feel safe with and can have an amazing time with. I would like to meet someone who can appreciate me and make me laugh and with whom I can share a bright future!
The first thing people notice about me
People generally notice a few things about me that I am told make me very unique. First, I am very laid back and accepting person that people feel that they can open up to easily. I have heard the line, "I don't know why I just told you that, you're just so easy to talk to!", repeatedly in my life. I am a very caring and understanding person and I try to be there for those that I care for and even those that I don't even know yet. I am a strong individual who is a great listener and a good shoulder to cry on. I am phenomenal at turning poor situations into positive ones and can always make the people around me laugh and smile.
The last book I read and enjoyed
The last book that I finished reading was Survivor by Chuck Palahniuk. I enjoyed that it was very different from anything that I had ever read before and while it was very dark, I felt that it was an accurate portrayal of many aspects of life, albeit exaggerated, and that there were a lot of underlying messages about hope and freedom and happiness. It was very intense and hooked me in almost immediately every time that I picked it up to read.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- That my family has always believed in me and is always there for me. They are supportive of my situations and accepting of me no matter what.
- My friends. They have always been there for me whenever I need them for anything. They do not judge me or the decisions that I make or hold my mistakes over my head. I have lost a great many friends over the last few years due to moving away for college, jobs, or simply losing touch for no good reason. My friends have always been there to help and support me and have been vital to my success in life.
- Myself. I know that this sounds incredibly selfish and conceited but I do not mean it in this way at all. Like most people in life, I have had more than my fair share or hard times and difficult, trying moments and I believe that I have learned from each and every one of them and continually try to improve myself. I always give my all in situations and try to make sure that not only I am satisfied with the outcome of a situation, but also that those around me that I love and care about are at least equally pleased. I care for others, I am patient, strong, and good-willed and I am thankful for everyday that I get to spend here.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
I can sometimes be very shy when it comes to meeting new people and many times people jump to the conclusion that I am not outgoing or that I am boring, etc. The truth is that I am just shy about meeting new people sometimes, though not always.
Friends Describe me as
Easy-Going, Genuine, Good listener, Loyal
A little more about me
Fairly recently I got out of a relationship that had lasted several years, which mostly continued just because it was easier to stay in it than because the romance and love were still alive. I hope that this does not scare anyone away, but I definitely do not want to repeat this and I am looking for someone who is patient and kind and someone that things "just feel right with". I am hopeful about seeing where things can go between us and excited to meet you!
