in his own words...

Ah so you are reading my profile! Allow me to convey myself through two short stories, since I believe stories stick better than just a list of facts, and it's more fun :) One night I was joining a friend and her friend at a bar. I have never met the new friend before, and when I arrived, they were talking about relationships and romance and such. Naturally I joined the conversation, and within 5 minutes, the new friend turned to me and said, "you are a hopeless romantic aren't you." I didn't know what to say, because although I'm one, I never said anything like that within those 5 minutes of meeting her, so I asked how did she know. She said, "it takes one to know one." Well. That's some food for thought ;) One time I was hanging out with two good friends. They are a cute couple and I have known them since midway through college. As I was about to leave their home at the end of the night, the girl said, with a hint of admiration, "Derek, you always seem so happy." That really made me think, because like any normal human being, I have my ups and downs too, so how come she made that comment? Then I realize it's because I'm always happy to be around friends. I'm quite lucky that all my friends are nice people, I value them very much, and I'm always happy to see them. So I said to her, "well, that's because I'm always happy to be around a friend like you!" And guess what, just recently, another friend and I were relaxing at a wine bar, and she made that exact same comment. It was not a fluke! How nice would it be, to meet someone who is at once a friend whom I'm always happy to see, and also see me for who I am, because she is also waiting to be discovered and understood? I have one more story I'd like to share, and it answers whether I'm a dog person or cat person. However, I'm running out of room, so message me if you want to hear another story :)

Take the personality test everyone is talking about.
