I really should get a publicist or biographer. I'm horrible at talking about myself, especially when trying to "put myself out there, in a good light!". This is going to be a rough one! Here we go anyway. Buckle up kids.

1.) Dedication - If I'm in a relationship, that relationship becomes my life and my purpose. My family, tribe, pack, familial unit becomes my first, and really only priority.
2.) Loyalty- While this ties into Dedication, it also means that once I have something I'm willing to dedicate myself to, I don't stray or wander. I don't even really "window shop".
3.) Honesty - Often to a fault. I hate lies. I hate having to keep track of B.S.. It's a thousand times easier to be upfront and deal with those consequences immediately over the fecal matter tornado that almost always follows dishonesty. (Serious warning here: Tread carefully when asking for my opinions.)
4.) Realistic- I don't dream BIG. I don't wallow in depressive negatives. Dreams ARE achieved, every single day. Failure is met, every single day. These thoughts keep me grounded, and moving forward every day.
5.) "Agressively Indifferent" - I'm one of those, apparently, rare people who legitimately means "I have no opinion, preference, or emotional reaction." when they say "I don't care."
6.) Selfless - If I'm close with you, I'm more than willing to suffer, so you don't have to. Cold? Take my shirt. Hungry? Have my food. Weather? I can find more shelter.
7.) Pride, without ego - Yes. I am good at what I do. Damn good. The best? Far from it! Unless it's a temporary solution, anything I do is done with the idea that the whole world will see the end results.
8.) Integrity - "Do the right thing. Especially when nobody is watching.". Why? Because it's the right thing to do. Quit being an entitled piece of shit and at least TRY and be a productive and functional member of society.
9.) Emotionally Aware - I might not be able to tell you exactly how I will feel or think about something, I can usually extrapolate a pretty decent idea. I have been surprised in the past, but it's pretty rare.
10.) Possessive, not controlling - I mean, unless that's what you want. If not, then outside of what ever dynamic is going on, you do you. As long as it doesn't have a negative effect on me.
Bit all over the place, but that's pretty standard operations for me. LOL
I'm 40, a bit progressive and liberal, while also a blue collar worker and a combat veteran.
Yes. I'm well aware of my own contradictory nature.
Fun Fact. I enjoy it. 😘
