Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a somewhat unconventional guy. It hasn't always been that way.
A couple of years ago, circumstances in my life made me reflect on
life. I came to the conclusion that when you're staying
comfortable, it's hard to grow and to improve yourself. My mantra
became "Get out of the comfort zone." Most people operate within
their comfort zones, especially when they reach a certain point in
their lives when they've achieved a measure of success. I think
only when you get out of your comfort zone can you continue to grow
and improve yourself.
I participate in sports and activities that are out of the
ordinary. Windsurfing has been a long term passion and I've
recently taken up kiteboarding, not exactly the sports one expects
an older professional guy to do. I push my limits when I ski.
Otherwise how can you get better? I guess that reflects on my young
outlook on life. My friends tell me that I don't act my age.
Even so, I recently took up golf. I resisted it for years and
years, thinking that it's an old man's game/sport. I found that
golf is an addicting pastime. It has the classic intermittent
reward/frustration that sucks one in. If one has the patience and
the desire to always improve, it's hard to turn away from. I study
it, always trying to improve myself.
Not only is it important to get out of the comfort zone with
physical activity, it's also important to keep learning. I think
that if you stop learning, you start to die, and I'm not ready or
old enough for that. I moved to San Francisco and enrolled in law
school and wow that, certainly stretched my mind and put me way out
of my comfort zone!
Update 5/2014: Graduated from UC Hastings College of the Law!
Finally, being out of my comfort zone means that I'm here... and
that I'm ready to find that woman with whom I can have that kind of
I hope you're out there somewhere!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I've gotten out of my comfort zone.
Regaining the physical fitness that I lost during law school.
I retired from a career in interventional cardiology and enrolled
in law school. I graduated in May 2014 and now studying for the bar

Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Learning new things, whether they be physical, sports or
Self reflection and accepting change
I socialize well, but my greatest strength is that I listen.
My friends tell me that I'm a great friend.
Holding hands and discrete public displays of affection.
Kissing, hugging and cuddling.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Hard to say, but I suspect that people first notice that I'm pretty
quiet and reserved until they get to know me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I'm a serious foodie, but generally I eat to live when I eat alone.
I do love to cook, when it's with or for that special someone. When
I go out, I like to have things that I don't make at home, from
sushi to fried chicken, from cheesecake to spring rolls.
Movies... depends on the genre. Star Wars to LA Story, Tarentino to
Music: I don't really like acid rock, and heavy country, although
country is fun to dance to. I even like rap and hip hop. Jazz is
nice most of the time, and I have a weakness for oldies.
TV: Discovery channel, Food channel, Science.

Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
