Jonah is the most amazing guy you could ever talk to or meet. He will make you laugh for hours on end. He's wonderful but doesn't believe it when you tell him so. He has awesome eyes and hair. He is very good looking but it probably a little too modest about it. He's so smart and loves to share random facts with others. He's a major bookworm. He is very sweet and nice but notice how sweet he actually is. The thought of never talking to him again crushes your heart.

A normally shy and introverted person who keeps his feeling locked inside, and you never really see much interesting about him until you try to get to know him, and when he trusts you, he WON’T shut up. Jonah is the kind of guy who loves memes and funny stuff in general. He always mixes up words or doesn’t think ahead of time before he speaks, usually ending up in a weird jumble of words. He is also extremely clumsy.
Person 1 : Jonah just spilled an entire carton of milk on himself...

Person 2 : that’s just Jonah.

Jonah is a wonderful and a truely perfect person. Though he may seem out going, he is a very calm and introvertive person when with the person he truly loves. He is a very loyal and sweet person to be with. He isn't afraid to be honest and is very mature around his elders. He won't leave you alone if you are upset or mad at him or others. He cares so much about the person he loves and will do anything to keep them safe and loved. He is a soft person towards his family but isn't afraid to fight for the people he loves. He won't hesitate to stand up against someone if they hurt their friends or loved ones.
