    It'S The Quiet Ones You Have To Watch Out For

    I am a listener. I do talk, to people I trust, actually talk and vent. I will have small talk with acquaintances laugh and make jokes. But I have a filter on because I want no part in drama and these almost complete strangers do not need to know my issues. But just beware because...

    Take Note Of The Calm That Hides The Pain...

    Please know, the "usual" me is sensual, gregarious, warm and witty...always challenging thoughts and on fire. When I'm not saying much, I'm feeling ill...really ill...on the inside and I probably need a hug.

    Crouching Tiger

    I am a quiet, reserved person who happens to have great intensity underlining my quietness. The things I care about, I am devoted to with a passion.  One does not have to go about with his arm flailing wildly in the wind to be intense.  A monk in meditation can be more...

    When You Don't Know Me... lol

    I do seem extremely shelled and reserved. But only few know how I really am. I'm really a pretty nice bubbly person that you'd probably like to meet and talk to. I like laughing, telling jokes, being helpful, just someone that enjoys life for what it has. Regardless for what I do...

    Turn Everything Off

    I'm the one that gets called because ' they just can't cope'. I go to them. I'm calm. I ask the questions. I take notes. I do the talking and the writing and the calling. I make the arrangements. I...I...I. When things have to be handled, I'm there. The steadfast friend. The...

    Deeply Contemplative

    I appear to be a quiet, reserved person most of the time.  I am a deeply contemplative person.  I do a lot of research and spend a great deal of time studying.  The mind is an interesting field of science.  It isn't an easy science to study.  It isn't just biology of a body...

    Most Of The Time

    I am quiet and reserved until you really get to know me. Then watch out, I have a warped sense of humor. I am a friendly warm person to those that can get me out of my shell.

    Some People Even Think That I'm Serious.

    Most people that know me superficially, think I'm severe.  Probably that is because i think so often about miserable me.  Seldom I have uplifting thoughts about myself, alas. Those who know me better soon find out that I have a tendency toward the hilarious, that I'm an...

    Silence Is Golden?..

    I remember that i was a really talkative one when i was a kid but as i grew up,I became more and more silent and learned to listen more than talk. I have always had my quiet time of contemplation to help me out when i need a new idea or when i'm simply feeling down. Of course...

    Apparent Boring Snob

    Unfortunately as I've gotten older people have revealed they thought my natural quietness indicated snobbery, which once they talk to me more than 2 min they realize that is not the case. I am talkative at times but I prefer to listen and think and most of the time that I am...
