More About MeI care about people and have often over invested. I'm kind, and find that a very attractive feature in others. I hate people that manipulate others for whatever reason, and I believe in honesty in a relationship.
Hobbies / Interests / ActivitiesWhat spare time I have at them moment goes to reading, but I do like going out with friends, small groups. I also love making food as a group.
Who I Would Like to MeetKindness, open mindedness, willingness to discuss viewpoints. I'm not an organized person at all, I've never been into any type of fashion of social conventions, but I understand the need for them, and a person who can take the lead there would compliment me. I want someone that I can grow with in such a way that if the relationship doesn't work, we are both better people for having had it.
Favorite MusicJust about anything with the exception of hard metal, rap, and folk music.
Favorite TV ShowsI have a wide range of likes, but character driven stories interest me most.
Favorite MoviesAgain a wide range, as long as the characters are interesting and the story reflect their personalities.
Favorite BooksMostly academic article, because I have to, but I love reading Scifi and fantasy, Terry Pratchett at the top of the list. Currently reading "Zen and the art of motorcycle maintenance", it is fairly interesting, but the main argument isn't very solid.
Favorite Quotes"To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and to endure the betrayal of false friends. To appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to leave the world a bit better whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition; to know that even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded." - Ralph Waldo Emersonn. There are many others but this is one of my favourites.
