3) What talent do you wish you had?

4) If I bought you a drink, what would it be?
A. A glass of wine; red or white depending on the season.

5) Favorite vegetable?

7a) What zodiac sign are you?
A. Gemini

7b) What's the most embarrassing thing you're willing to admit to?
A. I've been to a David Hasselhoff concert once. When I was much younger.

8) Any Tattoos and/or Piercings? Explain where.
A. One hole per earlobe.

9) Worst Habit?
A. Picking the skin around my fingernails and on my feet.

10) If you saw me walking down the street would you offer me a ride?
A. I'd probably not recognise you driving by, but if I did, yes.

11) What is your favorite sport?
A. To do - skiing. To watch - figure skating.

12) Do you have a Negative or Optimistic attitude?
A. Mostly negative, with ill-timed bouts of optimism.

13) What would you do if you were stuck in an elevator with me?
A. Talk to you until we get rescued.

14) Worst thing to ever happen to you?
A. My childhood. Not to give a wrong impression, there was nothing really bad like abuse, but it messed me up in so many ways that I'm not sure I'll ever be able to really repair.

15) Tell me one weird fact about you.
A. I've a worm-phobia. I'll happily admire spiders or pet snakes, but I try to avoid even looking at a worm.

16) Do you have any pets?
A. No.

17) What if i showed up at your house unexpectedly?
A. I'd probably freak out, tell you to wait five minutes, shut the door in your face, get dressed quickly and take you to the nearest café. My flat is embarrassingly messy at the moment.

18) What was your first impression of me? (hmmm...careful!)
A. Good writer, interesting person; someone I wanted to know more about.

19) Do you think clowns are cute or scary?
A. Depends. Mostly I think they're either funny, sad, or both.

A. Brownish, with a bit of green around the pupil, depending on the light.

23) Ever been arrested?
A. No.

24) Bottle or can soda?
A. Bottle, though I try to avoid both. I've always kind of assumed (perhaps wrongly) that plastic is a bit less environmentally harmful than aluminum. Not much of a soda drinker in any case.

25) If you won $10,000 today, what would you do with it?
A. Probably save for the apartment I'm planning to buy at some point.

27) What's your favorite place to hang at?
A. Home.

28) Do you believe in ghosts?
A. I haven't seen one yet, so no, not really.

29) Favorite thing to do in your spare time?
A. Photography, internet, reading.

30) Do you swear a lot?
A. Not a lot. The occasional 'shit' or 'fuck', because for some reason I swear mostly in English.

31) Biggest pet peeve?
A. At the risk of sounding very petty, people not doing their jobs properly. I'm not rude about it towards them, I should maybe add; it just bugs me when I can't rely on someone else to do their part.

32) In one word, how would you describe yourself?
A. Myself.

33) Do you believe/appreciate romance?
A. Yes. it hasn't happened to me, but apparently it works for other people. So, yes, I believe it exists, and am mostly glad for them.

35) Do you believe in God?
A. No.

36) Will you repost this so I can fill it out and do the same for you?
A. Yes. :)

I know that feeling, I've been struggling with this on and off. I know I hurt and limit myself by not opening myself to the possibilities more, by not even wanting to see, but part of me thinks (knows) that I'll hurt myself more by falling in love with yet another person who won't want me, risk another slide into depression. I'm too scared of that.


And sorry about the answer form, I tried to fix it, but the css someone else suggested messed up all the other added css I have. It helps if you type ?format=light at the end of the post's url and then post the comment.

Yes, IMHO.
