Reasons why Shelleycat is wonderful

I have told shelleycat very often that she is cute and wonderful and that i love her, but i don't think i've ever tried to enumerate the reasons before.

Reasons why shelleycat is wonderful:

She found me on a dating site, and she messaged me first
She's goth, but not extremely so
She liked going clubbing, before she started getting generally too tired and sick for it.
She just likes dancing in general, not anything formal, just bouncing around
She's into BDSM, but not extremely so
She is definitely a top and will tell me what to do, but is always loving and never cruel
We rarely fight when she isn't in one of her bad moods
She never seems to seriously mind my sometimes erratic work schedule, even though she usually says she'll be lonely and bored when i go in for an extra long day or on a weekend
She understands and likes my sense of humor, despite the weird combination of dry and sarcastic and silly that most people don't seem to care for or get
She likes talking to me in cat language
She tells me pretty frequently that i'm really sexy
On a fairly regular basis she just grabs me and demands that i kiss her
She's almost exactly as touchy-feely as i am (which is a lot)
She enjoys just sitting side by side on the couch and each doing our own thing, interspersed with occasional cuddling or kissing
She loves our cat almost as much as i do, and is better than i am at spoiling her with treats
She doesn't normally wear makeup
She doesn't normally wear perfume
She almost never wears heels
She almost never wears dresses
She frequently wears tank tops and cargo pants or shorts.
She's generally pretty laid back about life
She's generally pretty cheerful and upbeat
She likes discussing cute girls with me
She likes video games, even if not usually the exact same ones i do
She likes boardgames
She likes SF and Fantasy books, even if not usually the exact same ones i do
She likes anime
She likes watching AMVs (at least the good ones about good anime)
She likes silly fun movies and cool SF/Fantasy movies
Whenever i need to save money she helps keep me from spending it frivolously
Whenever i need to save calories she helps keep me from spending them frivolously
She offers me lots of advice about health stuff
On the rare occasions when i get sick or need help with medical stuff she takes very good care of me
She loves me and she's never chosen to leave me

And i suppose it wouldn't be complete if i didn't add that she has glasses, dark hair and a small chest.
