I'm seeking a long-term relationship. I keep myself busy but will always make time for the right person. I work during the week in finance and then volunteer caring for sick & injured wild sea lions & elephant seals at The Marine Mammal Center, an animal hospital in Sausalito. I really enjoy working with and helping the animals. If you get to know me, I promise that Saturdays will be the only time I may be a little fishy... LOL, but hey, it's for an awesome cause.
I was raised with Midwestern values, a mid-west transplant that moved to California in 2001. My father was born and raised in South San Francisco and moved east in his early 20's. I've always loved the bay area; more so every time I came to visit relatives.
I'm looking for a woman that enjoys getting out and exploring and doesn't mind spontaneous trips. I also want someone that is family oriented or doesn't mind the occasional last minute family event. I don't have immediate family here in California but I do have a first cousin that is like a sister to me and I enjoy going to events to support her two kids that I cherish very much and would like to find someone special to share that with. - Matt
What I’m doing with my life
Volunteering most Saturday morning's.
I’m really good at
I took a residential carpentry class when I was younger which has
made me pretty handy to have a around at times, plus I'm great at
repairing things. Oh, and there's the thing that my dad was one of
the leading manufactures of natural stone knife sharpeners until he
retired and sold his business in 2013. So because of working with
my father for 10+ years in that industry, it gave me the capability
and knowledge to properly sharpen knives; not that that really
matters, but more of an informational tid bit.
The first things people usually notice about me
Not sure, maybe how short I am? J/K, if you love to wear heels then
you'll like me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
My favourite author is John Grisham. I like most all sorts of
music. I dislike reality TV shows.
The six things I could never do without
My smart phone
Being near the ocean
I spend a lot of time thinking about
When am I going to meet that special someone...
On a typical Friday night I am
Varies... I go out with friends, other times I'll stay home and
watch movies; just depends on the mood. Lately I've been trying to
go to bed no later than 9 because of having to get up anywhere from
3:30-5AM for my Saturday shift caring for the sea lions &
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm open-minded, appreciate culture, and like to be creative. I'm
seeking someone that is sassy, playfully sarcastic, and
quick-witted. I also would like to find someone that is not afraid
to show affection or give me her opinion. I enjoy a woman that is
out-going, sarcastic and a flirt, but is also monogamous; I am
open-minded yet traditional.
I am very grounded and calm. I am full of contradictions and I’ve
definitely got range! It keeps me balanced to explore all life has
to offer. I am really enjoying life because I have surrounded
myself with people who I feel good with and because I live in the
Bay Area and have so many amazing things to do whenever I choose.
And, I'm at a place in my life where I'm looking for an incredible
partner to share it with. At the very least, I'm open to meeting
great people here to have a few good laughs with and a great
I'm positive, kind, and very patient (I've been told that I have
the patience of a saint). I also enjoy spoiling the person I'm
You should message me if
You think that we would get along great and you would like to meet
in person to see if the feeling may be mutual. I'm a visual person,
I'd rather meet sooner than later and not have a long email
communication back and forth.
