Love is in the air....... =)

(Tomorrow, we're going to Imatra again..)

Just when I posted loads of them, there's a new one!

You Are 26% Open
You are open at times, but generally you don't let many people into your inner world.
It's possible that you have a friend or two that knows you well.
But to most people, you are a total mystery.

There's only one person who could ever read all pages, if they wanted to. It takes 100% trust, and I've only ever met one person who's gained that. Generally, I don't trust people. People suck.

Lots of Blogthings again..

Your Love is Based on Affection
Your need for love is very primal and basic. You can't imagine living without love.
And for you, love is something that's best expressed through touch.
You're always up for a hug or a cuddle. And you feel a bit rejected when you don't get enough affection.
Whether you're sharing a blanket or sharing an order of fries, you thrive when you're close to the person you love.
Why your love can last: You express your love freely and frequently
Why your love can fail: You can come off as clingy, and this freaks people out

You Are an Individual
You are a master of logic and reasoning. Emotions don't color your decisions.
You thrive on action and always want to be moving forward. A lot of your action is internal.
You have some loner tendencies - and you're totally okay with that. You like to do your own thing.
You've always felt a little different from everyone else. You are a true individual.

You Are Thoughtful and Happy
You have an optimistic outlook. When troubles come your way, you try to see how you will grow and learn from them.
You feel like you can't depend on anyone but yourself in this world. You feel quite alone sometimes.
You feel exhausted about your past and those you have loved. It's been a long, hard road.
You succeed by pacing yourself. You realize that all that matters is the long run, and you aim to persevere.

You Are Colorful Because You're Outgoing
You tell it like it is, and you tend not to leave any detail out. You have a bold personality.
You're well known for being you, and you wouldn't have it any other way. You let it all hang out.
People appreciate that you can always keep the conversation going. You always have something to talk about.
You aren't a very private person. You reveal the good, bad, and ugly sides of yourself. Luckily, there isn't much bad or ugly!

You Are A Thoughtful Idealist
You are a bit tentative when it comes to new experiences. You have to push yourself to try new things, but once you do, you love the adventure.
You don't spend a lot of time thinking about how people see you. You're kind of scared to know what they think.
You are a very romantic person. You can't help but see the world as it should be.
Right now, stress occasionally makes you feel trapped in your life. You usually have a clear perspective on things though!
Overall, your life is calm and steady. Not much stirs you, and each day is full of joy.
You aren't optimistic about the future. You worry about what will happen to the world and if we'll be able to clean up the messes we've made.

Your Brain is Organized
You like a lot of structure in your life, and you're good at getting things in order.
You have a good eye for details, and you are excellent at following difficult directions.
You are a natural planner, and you always feel a bit lost if you don't have a plan drawn up.
You like to have a routine and stick to it. Chaos stresses you out.

You Have Good Manners 75% of the Time
Your manners are quite excellent. You are well versed in etiquette.
Of course you have the occasional slip up, but you even apologize with grace.

Your Inner Color is Blue
Your Personality: Your natural warmth and intuition nurtures those around you. You are accepting and always follow your heart.
You in Love: Relationships are your top priority, and this includes love. You are most happy when you are serious with someone.
Your Career: You need to help others in your job to feel satisfied. You would be a great nurse, psychologist, or counselor.

You Are Relaxed
You are an easygoing and calm person. You don't like to feel too worked up about anything.
You enjoy relaxation and quiet. You don't have a need to make things exciting.
You do best in small groups of people. You tend to have a few very close friends.
You are conscientious and organized. No detail slips past you.

Since doberman wasn't an option..
