I am intelligent, compassionate, caring, sensitive, financially independent, non-abusive, and generate sex-appeal, according to some sources. I should also mention that I used to be conceited but now I'm perfect.I like to travel and have company on cold winter nights beside a roaring "real" fire. My romantic nature speaks for itself. I am a late-nighter. Getting together during the day is also fine. Added to the list of desirable characteristics is the fact that I am a courteous and sensitive person, and I believe in doing things the right way, rather than the fast way.I like to plan my time to make the most of my days. I think "carpe diem" is appropriate here. I consider myself to be logical, preferring to trust my reason more than my emotions. That way I avoid landing with both feet firmly in the air. Mutual respect is much to be admired. I strive to be sincere with my family and friends,sometimes to the point of being direct but in a considerate and gentle way. I like to talk about shared interests and experiences. I approach relationships carefully and like to take things a little slowly at first, rather than rush into immediate friendships. Loyalty and cooperation are important to me, and I look for these traits in the people that I meet.
