Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
If you are looking to find a soul mate from a few scattered and
mostly inconsequential OKC questions, you might want to click onto
the next profile. If, however, you are willing to be real, and to
put in the time necessary to make a human relationship work, please
read on and see if we might be friends, playmates, activity
partners...and then, who knows?
I am in an age of self-discovery I have not experienced since I was
in my early 20s. I feel fortunate to have a stability grounded in
coming from what I fancy to be good, honest peasant stock. This
base, I hope, gives me the platform to dive into the artistic well,
the want for self-exploration, that so characterizes San
How I behave here – dress, play, eat, interact – would never have
come off so easily in my home town of Albuquerque, New Mexico. And
now, I find myself single, free to turn over rocks, look under
bushes, and play with crevices in my mind.
I look for Friends/Activity partners/lovers who want to:
-- walk this magnificent city, whether it is the nature, the
cityscapes or the opportunity to just people watch in crowded city
-- take advantage of the Bay Area's wealth of performance art,
often dirt cheap or free
-- kick a soccer ball around (always looking for players for my
Sunday coed team
-- sip coffee or booze, maybe even spark up and talk literature,
philosophy and just of the human condition.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Professionally, I have been fortunate to seamlessly move from the
corporate world – a marketing cog in the gross, unnecessary, sector
of the business world (corporate law) – to the literally
touchy-feely world of massage. I am lucky enough at 3 years into
this new field to have established myself as a massage instructor
and have built a nice little world of chair massage gigs and
Beyond work, I spend a great deal of time playing soccer, walking
San Francisco, discovering new-to-me dive bars, and playing as much
I am also rediscovering a strength and sense of self. I would love
to discover someone who can help me more fully realize my
potential, just as I might do for her.
Now is a good time for me to get to know strong individuals, people
with a good sense of themselves and the character to know that a
solid relationship is built slowly: no single message from an OKC
sender is going save anyone. However, building a relationship with
an OKC interest could blossom into a connection to last a life

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: classics. Hawthorne, Balzac, Edora Welty, etc. There are
excellent current writers, of course, such as Joyce Carrol Oates ,
but you can keep the whole detective genre (not that there is
anything wrong with romance and detective novels, but there are
just so many classics yet to be read).
Music: Nick Lowe, Aimee Mann, Lyle Lovett, Gillian Welch are among
my favorites. Going to Hardly Strictly Bluegrass is one to the
hightlights of my year, as is the Annual Burning Man Decompression
Party in Bay View/Hunters Point.
Movies: Cannot beat almost anything Peter O'Toole in it. I also
like Woody Allen and old Bogart films.
So far as food goes, well, I really enjoy a variety. I try to keep
the unhealthy stuff to a minimum, but you cannot eat at Ananda
Faura every night. so a nice rack of ribs can delightfully break up

Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I feel touch is such an important and neglected part of what it
means to be human. We communicate through touch. We comfort. We
celebrate. We console.
For many, touch is limited to sex or violence and that just is not
right. We need to find our primate selves and litterally embrace
each other anew.
