Dida's someone who genuinely cares about and enjoys people. Not all people, but most of them. And she's interested in them. She views each acquaintance as an engaging puzzle--a tiny, curious universe of undiscovered intricacies. Her friends vary from the very old to the very young and every age in between. She's the type to strike up a conversation--not solely for the sake of small talk, but to connect--with the most crotchety looking old-timer in the pub. And while she's loud and sociable, she listens just as well as she chatters. Fierce loyalty (common in any good Hufflepuff) paired with gentle intuition leads her in her interactions with others, and she tries to ensure that those closest to her always feel valued and loved.
She's lively, she's frisky, she's expressive. She holds strong opinions and ideals. She doesn't water herself down. Her jokes are often inappropriate or irreverent. There are certain social conventions that exist for a reason and she circumvents them like a seasoned pilot. If Dida doesn't occasionally make you feel uncomfortable, you're probably nearly unflappable. Though she's far from malicious, her offenses can push her over into unfriendly territory. And reserved just for her enemies is a fiery temper suppressed by years of tedious pruning and learned self-control. She's a protector, and if she perceives that she or someone else is under attack, she will lash out with seemingly little forewarning.
Although she's naturally flirtatious, Dida's not as experienced in matters of love as she is in other areas of life. Sure, she's had a few flings, but she remains under the impression that the best is yet to come. Also, she has come to the conclusion that being gay complicates one's love life exponentially; indeed, most of the women she has fallen for over the years have been straight and any attempt to get to know them better only resulted in heartbreak. Frankly, she's open to a relationship, but she's not actively seeking one out at the moment. Whatever happens, happens.
