And I don't know if it's possible to be more than one thing at once, but if it were possible, that is what I would want. You have a good heart, but it's been played with, and mangled and now you aren't the same. I hope I don't fall in love.

  • Somebody who can keep up with me. I like to inform myself with random knowledge. Any person who can defy me, or agree with an opinion I have, and actually know about that topic, impresses me.
