i enjoy being in the presence of a genuine individual with a positive disposition, who can make me laugh and i can learn from. i have no interest in associating with those molièrean masks: keep it real or keep it moving. i maintain optimism even at the heels of misadventure, but i like to think i know when it is time to let go. other than the basic traits mentioned in my profile that i am looking for, i am essentially in search of a partner who i share a genuine connection with. someone who is confident, kind, ambitious, thought provoking, respectful, and has a wonderful sense of humor (sarcasm very welcome). it goes without saying, but both individuals should also be physically attracted to one another and share similarities.
