25 Ė Someone who fascinates you and why.
26 Ė What kind of person attracts you.
Wow! Those are hard questions to answer. And to be honest, Iím not sure I can answer them accurately.
Well, let me attempt to answer the first one with Ė my husband. Heís someone I donít understand. We seem like total opposites of each other. Iím loud and talkative, always saying whats on my mind while heís quiet and reserve, saying very little but always deep in thought. I get frustrated when I donít understand something and he lights up at trying to figure out a puzzle. I feed off the energy of crowds, he energizes himself in the quiet. I face the issues of the world, he faces the issues of his brain. My family was controlling and religious, his family was open and unbound. How is it that someone so opposite from me can stay with me so long? When we figure out that question, lifeís mysteries might finally be revealed.
In regards to the second question, I guess I need to look at the guys I felt drawn to and compare them to ďnormalĒ guys. Guys I felt drawn to didnít always have the same beliefs I did, and in fact caused me to question. They donít look like those that would make a top 100 list, and might even be labeled as a ďnerdĒ in school. Because I have so many issues of my own, I need someone who can look past that and accept me as I am. I need someone who doesnít mind questioning and can help me find answers. I want to feel safe around someone. Having similar interests is always a plus, but being open to new ideas is also a requirement. My past, present and future, however crazy it may seem, are a part of me. If you canít accept that, or the people it contains, then we might have a problem. Thereís not one type of person that attracts me. I guess thatís one of the things I love about working at a camp in the summer. It brings a bunch of people together from different walks of life and meshes them together to create a perfect summer family. Thatís kind of my outlook on people. The people that attract me donít fit one mold Ė they take a little of everything and mesh it into something that makes them beautiful and attractive. Take Doctor 10 (David Tennant) and 11 (Matt Smith) from the BBC show Doctor Who. To be honest, I have a hard time stating which is my favorite. I lean toward 10 because he was my first, but I love 11′s quirkiness and sense of humor. He talks and talks and forgets what he was talking about and it reminds me so much of my husband. Doctor 10 on the other hand is way cuter to look at, and he seems more like a prince charming whoís come to whisk the princess away to her castle. The Doctor is hidden and reserve about his past, and its part of what draws his companions and viewers to him.
