GGG,Adventurous, athletic, inquisitive, passionate, compassionate, down to earth, sensual, hilarious. Sapiosexual. Ready and open to merge my heart, mind, body and soul with the right kind, masculine(ish?), unpretentious man who also worships at the altar of nature.
The most sublime, most difficulty, most rewarding thing I've ever done - 10 day silent Vipassana meditation. Buddhist teachings/philosophy appeal to me on many levels, but I also love the inclusive, activist, everyone is welcome message of joy and exuberance at GLIDE in the Tenderloin of SF. Also recently PADI certified in La Paz and am learning to Kite Surf.
I'm on a lifelong journey to become less type A, let go, lose control. Happier as I'm getting older knowing that I've learned a great deal but realizing that I still have so much to learn.
I live to be outdoors in nature. I love to cook, I love music and art, architecture, I love kids, I love <<Burning Man>>, the Aids Ride. I'm an unabashed <<sports fanatic>>, especially college hoops. (I went to Duke...I can't help it) : )
If you find this TED TALK Fascinating, we should really talk. http://www.ted.com/talks/richard_wilkinson.html
P.S. I'm dying to see more live jazz.
On a memorable night I ate divey bbq and soul found and watched 11 groups of Bay Area artists interpret Radio Head's Kid A album. Would love to find a partner who was into that. ; )

You are confident and comfortable in who you are and are not prone to jealousy.
You want to get on the phone and speak (or google hang out) as soon as we establish some interest. Endless text conversations are killing me! : )
Always up for meeting friends to run/bike/swim/hike/ski/board/show shoe/xcoutry with. Would love to do more camping, bouldering, sky diving, rafting, scrambling, and kayaking as well.
I like guys who have muscle on their bodies because they are athletic and active. I'll take a regular, athletic guy who eats pizza/ice cream from time to time over an 8pack 6x a week no carbs after 4 guy any day; especially if he has a sense of humor , compassion, and a sense of adventure.
Brains, humor, kindness, nurture and individuality are hugely sexy to me. Flashy labels and fancy cars are not. I love and can enjoy elegant, sophisticated, well designed and stylish things, but I can also hitch hike, sleep in hostels and eat out of a packet or can. Inn and Out Burger hits the spot sometimes.
If you think March Madness is a circuit party, we're probably not a match. If you think we'd create an amazing Venn diagram together, I'm into it!
When I'm being my best self (which is most of the time), I'm looking to find a good guy to date and pursue a relationship with...not looking for casual hook ups. (I am, however, a man, a human, as sexual being with needs and desires.) Want to raise children someday. P.S. I could never go to another gay bar or club in my life and be completely content.
