    extrovert/hippie/musical mum and dad ..,.. I loved the entertainment but I'm also not willing to put myself out there showing myself 100 percent, from my experience the closest people I'm not awkward with ...but they have been the most honest down to earth people I've met.

    But they should be genuine. I like meeting new people. I can start conversation but I just don't lots of connections. I want quality people. But I rarely find them.

    There is something about negative people that makes me highly upset. Negativity is spread by those who are not content within them selfs. ~M

    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.
