    Yes. There's nothing like a confident man who knows what he wants, but is sensitive enough to know what you need. I'm not sure he's out there ;)

    I am not open to many people. I'm usually quiet and I don't really like a lot of attention. So if I like you enough to show you the real me, you must be very special.
