My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
First of all, you should know right up front that you have stumbled across the biggest catch on this site - and we'll get to WHY that is in a minute - but I want to be up front first. Before we get to all of the good stuff, before you get excited, amazingly, I DO have faults. To wit:

1) I do play golf and watch football, despite the fact that, to women, this is tantamount to wearing the same dress to the company Christmas party two years in a row.

2) I use words like “tantamount” in a dating profile.

3) I spend a tremendous amount of time thinking about the history of Snoop Dogg’s catch-suffix “-izzle.” How would Snoop say the word “drizzle?” Would he leave it as it is, or use either “drizzle-izzle” or “drizzizzle?” (Answer in essay form, single-spaced, one side of the paper with a #2 pencil only, please. Eyes on your own paper!)

4) I have never climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro, don't own a motorcycle, don't bike 20 miles a day in my Lance Armstrong racing suit, don't have shirtless mirror pictures of my Saratoga-born-and-raised self flashing gang signs like I grew up in Compton, don't wear Affliction t-shirts and don't have a tattoo on my chest of some random woman wrapped in barbed wire sitting on Chinese symbols that translate into "Chosen One.”

5) I live in Pleasanton. Some of you - especially those of you in San Francisco - seem to believe that Pleasanton is some outpost, accessible only by pack mule, that borders Kentucky, Bangladesh, Siberia and Jupiter. I answer this by saying (a) it's just west of that, (b) amazingly, you only have to cross ONE bridge from SF on a 35-minute drive to get here (SF people: I knowww this concept is a challenge for you. Let it sit with you for a few minutes. It's not that bad). ;-) (c) I’m in all areas all the time: SF for work, San Jose for family / friends / Sharks games, and Sacramento as I roll through on the way to Tahoe every two weeks. I'll make the effort to come to you. ;-)

6) I overuse ellipses and colon-dash-parenthesis smiley faces in emails. I’m currently undergoing punctuation shock therapy to break this horrible habit. One day at a time.

***Now, the catch-worthy good stuff:

1) I have a dog. I know that, for women, the thought of a man caring for and nurturing a cuddly animal is cute, so I thought I would mention it first.

2) I definitely can cook. I don’t know the difference between a basil leaf and a leafblower, but certainly know enough to be dangerous.

3) I scored in the 95th percentile on Nordstrom’s “Male Mall Tolerance Test", proving my willingness to wander aimlessly around a mall while my female companion goes on a 5-hour search for the perfect pair of heels... and buys nothing.

4) I have killed scores of harmless spiders and insects to "protect" others in the past. Have a fear of ants? I keep my pimp hand strong with insects.

5) I DVR the Bachelor. Yes, I said it and own it. "It's the most amazing admission by a guy on OKcupid... EVER!"

6) I’ve been known to bring down the house at karaoke bars, not with songs that would get me on American Idol, but with over-the-top, crowd-pleasing versions of Sweet Caroline, Ice Ice Baby, New York New York, numerous old school rap songs and Biz Markie’s “Just a Friend.”

Friends and family would describe me as a loyal, very confident (but not cocky), genuine, kind, fun-loving, compassionate, intelligent, very athletic and giving. (And yeah, a sports fan: I'm a Sharks/Niners season ticket holder).

So what am I looking for? Someone who is happy, agreeable and is not afraid to give their heart away. Someone who loves to laugh and smiles a lot. We all have a little emotional baggage from old relationships, but please don't show up with four suitcases worth. All in all, I’m most interested in who you are, what you enjoy and what you’re passionate about. Women who are genuine, sincere and have a strong passion for life score major points. Women who are aloof, self-centered, drama queens or Raider fans will not. (Just kidding Raider fans... kind of...) ;-)
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Very, very proud of where I am and what I've accomplished. I lead sales for a tech start-up and our world is absolutely exploding right now -- in a great way. Truly love what I do, never been happier in my career, and can't wait to get going every day. I work hard, play hard, love passionately and laugh a lot -- other than finding someone to share all of it with, I could not be happier with where I am right now. :-)
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
.....writing dating site profiles. ;-) I'm really good at a lot of things -- numerous sports, my job, being handy around the house.... but the thing I always come back to on a question like this is my ability to be honestly introspective. I truly believe that,through years of continually looking at who I am and striving for more, I've turned into a pretty damn good guy. :-) When it's all said and done, I think that allows me to be a tremendous friend, son, brother, coworker and significant other.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
(1) I'm tall -- 6'3" (wear your heels)...
(2) Am extremely personable and engaging. I'll talk to and socialize with just about anyone.... and....
(3) My legs and butt ;-)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Unbroken, Game Change, Double Down and Fast Food Nation -- all examples of great investigative non-fiction. Most of what I read is non-fiction. (My latest is "The Nine:" an inside modern history of the Supreme Court. Not everyone's cup of tea, but I found it fascinating.)

Movies: Goodfellas, Forrest Gump, Rudy, Shakespeare in Love, Cinema Paradiso, Catch Me If You Can, The Sting, Gangs of New York, Seabiscuit, tons of documentaries.

Music: I dabble in a little bit of everything. (More to come on this in my "embarrassing private thing I'll reveal" section.)

Food: Where to start?!?! Good sushi, pasta, pizza (the more toppings, the thicker the crust, the better), really good steak (especially if it's topped with bleu cheese crumbles), chocolate eclairs and just about anything made by my mom, who's a tremendous cook.

TV Shows: Shark Tank (I'm obsessed), Mad Men, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Modern Family, Friday Night Lights, Parenthood, Manhattan (along with being a great show, someone very close to me is a big part of it), Daily Show, Impractical Jokers (hilarious!), the nightly national news, anything issue or feature-based (60 Minutes, Meet the Press, Frontline, etc)..... and my guilty pleasures: The Bachelor, True Crime Shows (Dateline, 48 Hours)
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
(1) All of the fantastic people in my life -- friends, family, coworkers
(2) Football (college and pro), my Sharks season tickets, and the occasional round of golf
(3) Tahoe weekends at the family house.
(4) My dog, Murph
(5) Good red wine, sushi, and dessert.... Any kind of dessert. Chocolate eclairs, my mom's pies and cakes, cheesecake, hot fudge sundaes, even a good glass of port.... Everything in moderation, but I do have a sweet tooth and someone can bribe me to do just about anything with good, soft chocolate chip cookies.
(6) Someone to share a deep, passionate, unwavering love with. :-)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
....who in the world would actually read down this far. If you got here, I'm sincerely impressed. Even I wouldn't have been able to read my own rambling diatribe all the way to the bottom. You know: it's a sunny day outside -- there's a lot going on out there. You could be doing any one of a million things: a hike, a walk with your dog, siphoning gas out of a stranger's car..... But you're here reading this?

It would be a shame if you invested this much time in this and didn't write to say hello. ;-)
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
...definitely doing something. Very few weekend nights where I'm just sitting around the house. I have a number of different groups of friends that I do things with and I'll probably be out with one of them. But could also be on my way to the family cabin in Tahoe.... or going to a Sharks game.... or spending time with my family.... Could be any one of a number of things.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm a mini YouTube sensation (haha, 1,400+ views, if that qualifies as a "sensation") for hitting a golf ball while wearing nothing but a pair of boxer shorts. Our friends call this an "Okrahoma." Do a search on YouTube for "Golfing With Your Pants Down." (Yes, it's safe for viewing.... and to find out why we call hit an "Okrahoma," you'll have to ask.)

All I will tell you is that, as a lot of guys do, our group requires a golf shot with your pants down (boxers on) if you don't hit your tee shot past the women's tee. So yes, that's me, and let's just say I added a little color to to what was required.... and that unbeknownst to me, the course marshall, the drink cart girl and two foursomes were looking on at my little production. ;-)
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.'re swooning at this point. ;-D

OK, you're probably not swooning. Too early for swooning. Swooning can come later. Maybe you're feeling that there's SWOON POTENTIAL though. If you've crossed that barrier, say hello. ;-)
