describe me to a stranger (round 2)


in a comment, describe what sort of person you think I am, as if you were telling your best friend who had never met me.
Be honest, tell the good and the bad. (and yes, if you have recently done that similar meme, feel free to cut and paste)

I've been wanting to do this now that I have new awesome people on my flist.

And if you already did this way back in September, please comment to your previous comment and tell me who you are, because that's STILL bugging me. I'm too damn curious to ask for anonymous comments on anything.

feelings: curious
sounds: Massive Attack: "Teardrop"

You know... I think that last comment is from me... lord my memory is terrible, but I am pretty sure you were on my list back then... and yeah... I think that was me...

Belenen is a beautiful person inside and out. The first word that comes to mind when I think of her is "dreamer". She is strong in her beliefs but not complacent simply believing what she is told. She is open and that's something to be valued. Sometimes, though, I think she is caught up in finding the answer to her questions forgetting that the question can be an answer in it's own right. Her faith is beautiful and something I wish I had...
belenen ══╣gentle╠══
thank you. *blush*

You're a very intriguing person, kind-hearted and intelligent, and also very talented. You're attractive and have an eye for beauty in different forms. You're uniquely creative (hoping that's a word?) and have little difficulty expressing yourself, which I admire. Overall it's a pleasure to know someone like you and I'd recomment you to a friend ;)
mental_coercion ══╣╠══
*recommend

and just pretend I said "Belenen is/she is" rather than "you're", ok? ;)
belenen ══╣garrulous╠══
;-)

Thank you.

To paraphrase. . .someone famous (I think), you're a puzzle within a mystery, wrapped in an enigma. I don't know that much about you because you are constantly finding out new stuff yourself. You don't hesitate to back down from what you think you should do, and speaking your mind comes naturally. (The sex posts are a little outside the box, but just another one of your many sides.) Kudos, and blessings on you and yours.
phrankenstyne ══╣╠══
I've read this reply at least a dozen times, and I promise I meant every word as a compliment, as much as it may not seem like it. Sometimes I think the written word lacks some of the subtlety of spoken language.
belenen ══╣garrulous╠══
That's why I try to mark the sex posts so that if you don't want to read, you have a warning that it's a post you don't want to read. (convoluted sentence, simple idea) ;-)
phrankenstyne ══╣╠══
I don't mind reading them, and I find it interesting that you have the courage to post them. I only meant that most people wouldn't, so you might be considered outside the box. -shrugs- Again, what I'm saying and how you're reading it are probably two different things.
belenen ══╣garrulous╠══
okay, well thank you! I like to be considered braver/more open than most.

belenen ══╣gentle╠══
thank you!

I do try to realize it -- and right back atcha, girl -- you are a wonderful person, realize it!

Well the first thing that comes to mind when I think of her (you) is how open minded she is. It's a great quality that she has, a quality that I admire in people. She doesn't stop and judge people, she sees the big picture.

No matter if you share or not the same beliefs, she'll give you her time, she's a very generous person.

A strong,independant, smart and funny woman.

And to top it off, as if she wasn't amazing enough .... she has great admiration for Angelina Jolie. Major points in my book =D
belenen ══╣gentle╠══
thank you! You're so sweet.

And I've never met a true Angelina fan that I didn't like -- y'know?

Sensitive, perhaps to her detriment, but admirably so. Creative and beautiful, with an eye for art in many forms. Constantly strives for happiness, even when circumstances attempt to prevent it. Open-minded, accepting of other people's flaws, and both loving and lovable.
belenen ══╣gentle╠══
thank you. and I'm glad you think I'm lovable. ;-)

I reallI haven't been on your friend list for very long, but I'll give it a try anyway.

The very first thing I noticed about you is how nice you are. That's a vague and general statement, I know, so allow me to elaborate. Some people act nice, but they're not really very nice at all. It's all a deception...a fake quality that they have. You are genuinly nice. When you say something -- you mean it. Very few possess that trait.

You're someone that upon meeting for the very first time, I would trust you wholy and completely. You're very honest and openminded, and you accept others as they are. You make people feel comfortable and unashamed in your presense.

Out of the four elements, I've always associated you with Air. Creative, independent, optimistic, kind-hearted, light-spirited, and down to earth.


That's how I would describe you to a stranger.
maladroitkat ══╣hmmmm purple╠══
Wow.

Ignore the spelling errors. They're running rampant through my entire reply . .
belenen ══╣gentle╠══
wow... thank you. And I love that you associate me with the element of Air. ;-)

She's a very genuine person. She knows what she believes and won't compromise her belief system. Above all she loves her friends--even more than herself and would truly do anything she could for them. She's creative, talented, and seems to really love living life. She's one of those people who is truly alive. What I really respect about her is that she still loves despite being hurt and cares even though she knows it could end up sad.
belenen ══╣gentle╠══
thank you so much.

belenen is a beautiful christian girl whom i admire for her vulnerability. she is a very strong woman who lets herself be totally real-- all the time, it seems. most people don't let themselves be totally real all the time, because they're too afraid of getting taken advantage of somehow, but i think it is a sign of real strength, when someone can be aware of this and be real at the same time. we don't have too awfully much in common, but she reminds me of a few people who have been very close to me at times, and because of this and my feelings toward the girls she reminds me of, i almost feel protective of her.
aubkabob ══╣satchel please╠══
hee hee, actually, i had read this and meant to come back and comment on it, because of the fact that i actually HAD had a conversation with my roommate about you, and tried to describe how you were, and why i thought the world of you, although we had just met.

i can't remember why the topic had come up, but i said something like "well, i have this new eljay friend, belenen. her and i totally hit it off immediately because of dealing with old ghosts as well as the way we view things in the present because of them. for years, i've always thought of my perspective on friendships and beliefs as skewed and almost... impersonal because of how off-handed i always am on a lot of things. it's such a relief to know that there IS someone else out there that believes as i do. not only that, but after reading the same trite things over and over in most people's journals, everyone feeling that no one understands them, that they hate their lives, etc., she was SUCH a breath of fresh air. she's artistic, she has deep emotions that she's not afraid to share with the world, and can put it so articulately... and besides, i could never resist someone that laughs at all my dumb jokes!"

give or take.

I don't have a best friend, so here would be me describing you to my mum. Bearing in mind I really don't like saying things that my mum would disapprove of, I'm not assertive.

She's the girl I painted. She's a christian.
In America, mmm.
No, but she's nice, really.
Hmm.

Now, describing you to an imaginary best friend, who wouldn't prejudge.

She's the girl I painted, she's from America. Well, she's very religious. Christianity type of religious, but she doesn't think homosexuality is wrong and things like that. She isn't all conservative. I think she thinks things through and makes her own morals. She would probably think more about them if it was suggested she hadn't taken everything into account. I don't think her mind would be clouded so much by what others think, or how things should be. Except for killing, things like that. She's too real-thinking and compassionate for that. I'm not sure, I haven't really discussed anything with her, I can't tell how she would think. How far you could go before you encountered the shut doors in her mind. It'd be interesting. She's the most open-minded person I've met so far anyway (except you, because you are my imaginary best friend, so you are brilliant). Generous and kind too. That's why I called her compassionate, and think maybe she would not be able to look at things with an empty mind. Too passionate, too caring. That's not bad though. Helluva lot better than the ones who don't care. Evil geniuses. If genious was like fungus then more than one genius would be genii, and thats completely different. Weird, eh. Anyway. Yes. I like her. Not sure what I think of God, but she hasn't told me I'll go to hell for not believing and she wouldn't go thinking the church was right and brilliant if it went killing people, or anything like that. It's not bad religiousness. She isn't one of those types who sacrifice themselves completely for others either, she's very focussed on herself. Not in a selfish way though. Most of her endevours are for self-improvement and enjoyment rather than to help the world at large. You know, she'll help people in trouble, and care about them, and wouldn't put her own pleasure always higher than others. She is capable of self sacrifice. Pretty well balanced between the two really. Well, you know, you meet so many people in life and you realise that the nice ones are much rarer than you think. She is a good person. There should be more like her.

Apologies for the length. I did try and describe you as I would to a perfect non-judgemental friend, and as if you weren't there to hear it. If I did have a best friend, she would have to be a very patient person, I can't follow trains of thought. I go off the rails.

Bel, is a spiritual, artistic creature. She carries that rare combination of phsical beauty and intellect. She seems prety cool. And definitely unique.
belenen ══╣artistic╠══
Thank you. *pleased*
wandrlost ══╣╠══
wel, i call 'em as i see 'em.

but, after reading my initial post, i realize i should check my spelling a tad more closely before hitting "post comment."

keep on being you!
