HeroesAll parents who have managed to raise courteous, conscientious, intelligent, cultured, loving and funny human beings amidst this mad, crazy and violent world.
About me:I am a liberated and wandering spirit eager to know more about life, meet wonderful and interesting people with similar and/ or contradicting views to mine and learn new perspectives. I enjoy being proven wrong and I relish having all my old beliefs rocked from their very foundations. I don't care if my foundations are weakened or strengthened, as long as they are questioned. I possess a tough, feisty and indestructible crust that complements my passionate and indomitable spirit; but underneath is an affectionate, tender and sensitive soul that loves instinctively, impetuously and without restraint (though I loathe to admit it). Other characteristics I don't usually admit to: closet romantic, certified geek and snuggle bunny...but all only apply to a chosen few. I am a learner, an eager participant and a lover of life. I do not like to be a mere spectator content to observe life from a safe distance, unscathed and untouched. I prefer to be beaten down, crippled, scarred for life but ultimately victorious.
Who I'd like to meet:Fellow wanderers, preferably just as beaten down, scarred and crippled as I am but just as triumphant, or even more. Soldiers of life who continue to hold a fiery and unconquerable spirit for life; courageous against adversity and dignified in the face of defeat. People who never fail to see the lighter side of life and are gifted with a deliciously sharp wit. A bold, dynamic and liberated soul who speaks his/ her mind with conviction but remains open to contradiction (and preferably enjoys a good argument). Tough on the outside but soft and mushy on the inside...and proud of it too. But if you are Viggo Mortensen, Fabio Canavarro or Johnny Rzeznik, you need not meet my requirements. I'll take you as you are. AND FOR THE RECORD: I am not here to join the meat market; so if all you're looking for is a "good time", a "future wife", a "nice, intelligent, and pretty lady" then you're barking up the wrong tree, buster. Back off and don't even try! I've been tolerant and polite long enough to all you sex perverts and desperate losers -- I'm not taking anymore bullshit from any of you. Capice? Go find some other female who'd ACTUALLY appreciate your attention.
