Male , 46-50

More an observer than a participant. Curious about a wide variety of things, when I do participate I always seem to ask the question that nobody else sees or wants to ask. I’ll try to figure things out for myself when I can, but when I can’t, I always look for somebody that does know the right answer. I get frustrated with arrogant and ignorant people. There is no harm in having a qualified opinion, but open your mind to other’s ideas as well.
