You're capable of intense and long-lasting devotion to a lover, but you're not one to stick around when it becomes clear that a relationship just isn't going anywhere. You're serious about love, but you also know how to have fun with it -- how to let your hair down with someone cute and exciting, how to be affectionate, how to have a good time even while you're looking for the person who will be your partner through all of life's ups and downs. You're not terribly romantic about love, which is a good thing in the long run.
You don't have many illusions about it; you have a firm idea of what's possible in love and what's unrealistic. As a result, to some, you may seem a little formal or reserved, especially when you're out with someone new. And you do tend to hold back a bit, at least until you get to know someone better. Trust is definitely a prerequisite for you when it comes to love and vulnerability. But once you get to know and trust someone, you'll give them your heart. You have a creative soul; make sure that, when you do settle down with someone for the long term, they appreciate and respect your creativity, and don't try to stifle it.
