LOYAL FRIEND; I have a small group of very close friends, which is preferable to having tons of acquaintances who only know how one parties. Whether it be a friendship or relationship, I believe in long term.
FAMILY ORIENTED; Parents have been married over 45 years and have set a great example. Being close with up to 3rd cousins, family parties are the best.
INDEPENDENT; Live alone and have my own car, both of which I work for.
TECHIE; I work on computer and cell phones as side projects. I'm the guy everyone comes to when they have tech issues or want to know what devices to get. Customizing Android with custom ROM's and mods is thoroughly enjoyable.
FREE THINKING; I tend to be more Conservative/Libertarian in thought. I may be gay, but the label doesn't define me. In LA, a sea of gays who take pride in conforming to staunch liberal ideology, attending every gay event, entitlement mentality, and being a fashion snob. To me, the "gay community" is ironically very restrictive and hypocritical with labels and self objectification.
BRUTALLY HONEST; It's tough, but sometimes you have to tell people what they need to hear. On that note, I've dated people of diverse backgrounds and I click far better with people of Caucasian descent or those who are mixed. It's easier to relate to people who were raised similarly who share a common basis for values and humor. I'm a big guy, and have been most of my life. Mainstream gays love to label me a "cub" or "bear" but I'm just me. Getting exercise and being active is just as important to me as good food. As long as I'm healthy, I'm good.
HOMEBODY; I can have fun being indoors or outdoors. Movie and game nights at my place or a friend's are awesome. It's fun to cook and try new foods. West Hollywood is not fun to me at all and given that I rarely ever drink it's annoying when people push me to do so.
SELF AWARE; I realize I have my faults and weaknesses and get along best with people who can admit their own, be mutually supportive. I'm also aware that I'm a super minority in LA being White, Conservative, and Gay and that most will just click away, but I'm hopeful the complete openness will find me true compatibility.
If you come from a stable, loving family move to the front of the line. I'm the type that if we click well on the first conversation, I will ask to go for a hike, or for some coffee. Please NO endless online chat or texting.
