3 Characteristics I Admire in Others

by - 5/28/2015

I'd like to think that I'm a pretty welcoming kind of person when it comes to meeting new people. Labels and stereotypes have always really bothered me. I can't say that there's any specific type of person that could be my friend. I always prided myself on having friends all over the spectrum when it comes to personalities. It makes life a whole lot more fun! But when it comes down to it, there are characteristics that are really important to me...

1. Good Sense of Humor... I'm kind of a goofball, and I don't take myself too seriously. So I like having friends who can laugh at themselves and make me laugh. Total bonus points if you've got a quick wit and a little bit of snark to your personality.

2. Individuality... Maybe it's the contrary in me, maybe it's the fact that I was raised in an extremely accepting home. If there's one thing I can't stand, it's fake people. Especially when you can see right through all the fakeness. Being yourself is humbling, involves transparency, and sometimes, it can be downright embarassing. But we've all got that stuff. I'd rather be friends with someone who owns it, rather than someone who tries to hide it!

3. Honesty... I'm pretty sure I'm not alone in this one, but I despise being lied to. And I really don't like being told things just to placate me or make me feel better. Also, don't tell me something if you have no plans to do it. I'm a card-carrying member of the if-you-don't-mean-it-don't-say-it club.
