I'm pretty shy at first, but if I think we have "compatible personalities", I'll come around rather quickly. I'm a little bit of an introvert, so I'm usually content staying in. Still, there are a lot of things I'd try or do more often if I had someone to talk me into them. I wish I had someone to give me that push.
One thing that really sets me apart from the "rest", I think, is that I'm not really much of drinker. I like a good drink every once and a while, but drinking is not the "end all be all" requirement for having a good time or socializing. Not for me.The way I see it, drinking is best when it compliments another activity, not BEING the activity. That right there should probably filter out like 90% of the people reading this. I'll take that risk. (It's hard to say no to beer pong, though!)
Bowling, minigolf, theme parks, the beach- the things you liked to do when you were 10, I still like. Problem is I have no one to do them with. My interests don't really line up with my friends at all, so I never get to do these fun activities. :\
People generally like my sense of humor and, well, I'm a good guy. I don't care if saying it makes it less true. "Saying you're a good guy makes you sound like a creep" you may be thinking to yourself. I'll take that risk.
Someday I'm going to be an amazing dad. I have a lot of younger cousins and am great with kids and really look forward to having kids of my own. :)
I don't really like driving if I don't have to. I have basically no sense of direction. I've gotten lost with a GPS.
I think animals are fascinating.
I'm good at listening, being awkward, lightening the mood, doodling/cartooning, being creative, being a complete and total weirdo while also being totally down to earth and "normal"... depending on the situation. Um, I'm very organized.
Oh, uh, it's not that unusual to find me vacuuming or cleaning (by choice)... at least the places you can see. I can't be happy living in dust and filth. A clean room is just nicer to be in (OCD, much?)
TLDR version: I'm really nice but shy at times. I'm extremely young at heart and hope to never lose my imaginative spark or outlook on life, but am also plenty mature when it comes to my priorities- my education, work, family, how I treat others, etc. I'm very empathetic and believe communication is key to a good relationship.
