I am a realist. I look for the reality in all situations. I am intelligent and strong, but I'm not pushy. I'm easy-going and non-judgmental. I believe the diversity of humanity is what keeps life interesting. I do, however, have my standards to which I staunchly adhere. I look forward to and enjoy the many facets of life. I will try just about anything once. I've dated. Frankly, it is probably the most bittersweet task I have ever undertaken. I enjoy great conversations with those who are intelligent and funny. On the other hand, dating can be difficult in that I find it tiresome to be constantly hopeful and let down.
