- Things I am looking for in a person are:
Mostly, I’m just seeking someone who can understand that a relationship is more than having physical intimate moments. I don’t mind intimacy (of the intellectual variety).. the problem arises when you add the physical part.
I often times say that I was born in the wrong time period and I should have been a hippie (minus the free-love thing). A nature loving, artsy, somewhat spontaneous, animal adoring guy (or gal) would definitely be my type.
I love goofy personalities. I can be quite goofy, myself, but am often times a little shy, especially in public (introvert is a MUCH better word choice than shy, actually). But a stronger, leading personality can definitely draw out the fun-loving side of me. I’m always up for a random ”adventure” like driving down that side-road you’ve always gone by but never explored, or romping through the woods just because.
I love animals and would greatly appreciate if any possible friends/otherwise would at the very least tolerate them. No need to say ”hi” if you’re one of those types that’s disgusted by the thought of owning a living, breathing, furry ANYTHING in your home. I’m not a crazy cat lady, but I do live and work with fur-covered companions (and I love every minute of it).
I consider myself artsy and would love to find someone who is, too. Not a complete necessity, though. I don’t judge on drawing capabilities or eloquent writing styles. A simple interest in doodling or reading will suffice. I draw some, myself, have a love for books and movies, and over-all enjoy being jealous of others’ artistic abilities when they surpass my own. I love being friends with other artists, be it drawing, photography, or writing.
- About me
Where to start..
I love animals. Adore them. I’ve pretty much dedicated my life to them. And if that doesn’t make me sound like a crazy cat lady, I don’t know what will, ha ha!
But I do own a few animals and happen to work at a shelter. I also pet sit on the side. So I’m constantly surrounded by little furry people. However, I understand that animals are pets (despite also being members of the family) and are not children. (No, I don’t carry my dog in a purse or push him in a stroller. I’m not THAT type of girl).
I suppose it’s just that I’ve always found animals easier to understand than people. They’re less invasive and don’t question everything you do and every decision you make. They’re also pretty helpless and need strong-willed people to stand up for them. So I’ve more or less taken on the job.
I’m a bit of an introvert. It isn’t that I dislike people.. it’s more that I have a hard time understanding most of them. I become overwhelmed fairly quickly and a lot of people tend to see me as quirky or ”weird” and it embarrasses me to be myself (which is a shame). It takes me a while to come out of my shell in the real world, though I’ve found it’s fairly easy online.
I love anime. LOVE anime. I honestly try to avoid the ”big” titles only because if the show doesn’t end, it tends to annoy me.. but if you want to talk movies or otherwise, I’m definitely up to it! Hayao Miyazaki is a god.
I’m a gamer, but not one of those hardcore first-person-shooter types. I’m terrible at shooters. However, RPGS are a go! Skyrim has eaten many, many hours (days, years) of my life and I have no regrets. I will happily buy a new gaming console when the next Elder Scrolls comes out. I’m also a Pokenerd, but these days who isn’t? And I quite enjoy Harvest Moon as well (and many other games that I couldn’t possibly all list here).
I’ve recently decided that I’m somewhat fascinated with the ”furry” fandom (just gonna drop that bomb now, I suppose). Not the crazy sexual fetish part.. but the romping around in big, fun, adorable costumes of a character you created yourself part. I suppose it’s the artist in me. And the fact that humans are really hard to draw and I tend to doodle animals above all else. I don’t know a lot about the fandom because I’ve never actually been to any of the conventions, but I am looking forward to learning. The fandom seems as though it’s filled with fun-loving, genuinely caring people and those are the types that I like to surround myself with.
I’m not very political and prefer not to talk politics. I’m one of those people that gets a bit steamy about it because I feel that MOST politicians, despite what side they say they’re playing for (Rep/Dem), are only playing for themselves.
I do not mind talking religion as long as it’s an open-minded debate. I do not appreciate being preached to. I have no idea what category I fall into when it comes to religion. I’m almost want to call myself agnostic but at the same time I feel like I’m slightly too spiritual for that. I sort of just believe in whatever feels right, but am also the seeing-is-believing type. However, this doesn’t mean that I judge other people for what they believe in, even if I can’t believe it myself. I feel that the point of religion is to help people feel at peace with themselves, and if your religion does that for you, then good! Whether I believe in it or not should be irrelevant.
A warning to the weak: I swear like a sailor. It sort of comes with the job territory.. swearing becomes a second language when you deal with the types of people I deal with on the daily basis; when you pour your heart and soul out every day at work and are then faced with the insanely stupid. I personally don’t find it offensive, but then I don’t generally find a lot of things offensive. I’m pretty open-minded and can even joke about fairly terrible things. I guess it’s because I don’t really take anything too seriously.
A rather big, important thing about me (I guess) is that overall, I’m decently clean. And by clean, I mean I’m not all that adventurous. I’ve never smoked, drank, or tried any other drugs. I just don’t have the desire to. However, this doesn’t mean that I won’t be friends with people who do those things. My best friend in the world is a smoker (though I’m constantly trying to get her to quit for her own sake) and a lot of my friends drink socially (and/or smoke other recreational things). I have no problem with the idea of going to hang out at a bar and being the only sober one left at the end of the night (in fact, this was quite common when I’d hang out with my old SPCA buddies). Just don’t try to pressure me into anything; I’ll bite! 😉
