A friend recently told me to be a "sheep in wolves' clothing," which is another way of saying that nice guys can't get girls, so it's better to be a jerk. But I just don't have that in me. I like romance and spontaneity and random gestures to show someone I was thinking about them. I'm empathetic to a fault and hate to see others in pain, so I try to never cause it. I will do most anything for my friends and family, and I've found they will do the same for me, so I consider myself pretty lucky in that regard. I also have a self-deprecating sense of humor, but don't mistake that for a lack of confidence I'm pretty happy with who I am and carry myself that way.
A little more about me ... Sometimes I can be a geek (I recently played a Game of Thrones board game at a friend's place and could almost feel my virginity returning as he explained the rules), but sometimes I can be cool (uhhhh ... I'll have to get back to you with an example). I love sports, movies and music and I'm planning a three-week trip to Europe in March that's going to include a few soccer games and at least two concerts: The Lumineers and Of Monsters and Men, both of whom I'll see in Paris. I also love books, although I haven't been making the time to read as much lately, which I need to rectify. If you have any book recommendations, by all means, please send them my way.
In terms of what I'm looking for in someone else, this would be the succinct description: honest, kind, funny, intelligent, motivated and sweet, with a little sass thrown into the mix. And if you're the type of person who likes to meet for coffee or a drink to get to know each other, rather than email back and forth for a long time, all the better.
I considering myself an open book, so if you want to learn more or have any questions, just ask.
