Timothy is quite well-looking. He’s tall and slim, with olive skin and a curly dark hair. Like many French people, he has great sense of style, so he always looking well-dressed even in casual clothes.
Timothy is very outgoing. He has always friendly and loves to having fun. He’s got a fantastic sense of humour and he has always makes me laugh. However he can be immature at times. For example, when he don’t get what he wants, he acts childishly and stamps his feet.
