The right guy looking for the right girl to share our awesome lives with each other. I think chemistry is the most important and, ironically, the most unpredictable thing that draws people together. Beauty is great, and fun is, well, fun. But chemistry is just something you need to make a relationship more than a friendship.
Life to me is a classroom, a party, a romantic comedy, and a giant family Thanksgiving dinner all wrapped into one experience. I don't think masculinity and kindness are mutually exclusive, nor are femininity and strength (as every mother has proven). I love learning from other people and other cultures. I also love traveling, and have lived in Japan and South Africa - both of which were awesome, life-changing experiences.
Wow, this intro makes me sound like I take myself super seriously, haha. No worries, I'm plenty of fun too (read on).
I came to SF a few years ago to get my MBA and refresh my career - it was a wonderful decision and I'm very happy that I made the leap. Now that I'm on a good career path it would be even greater to have someone special to share my moments with. Thus the profile you're reading...I'm ready to meet the right girl for the long term. All this dating stuff can be fun but I'm looking for a nice girl to naturally move past dates and into spending our time together, becoming a part of each other's lives.
Seeing the good in people, speaking Japanese like I'm straight outta Osaka, having great conversations with the most random people, looking better in person (I've been told), stumbling upon awesome things to do in foreign countries without an itinerary.
Movies/TV: Inception, Arrested Development, Mad Men, Back to the Future trilogy, 12 Monkeys, Colbert Report, Fareed Zakaria, TED Talks, documentaries, and Family Guy.
Food: Thai, Japanese, Indian, Pizza, soul food, anything good.
Music: everything from Ludacris and Jeezy to classical and dubstep, with some Al Green, M83, Weezer, and OK Go thrown in for good measure.
Here's some music I made, and/or put to some of the speeches I find inspiring, let me know what you think: https://soundcloud.com/justin-bean-2

I also think a lot about all the things and people to be grateful for in life, what I can personally do to help make the world a little better for myself and others, and how awesome monkeys are.
I love me some documentaries.
And I find OkCupid's stats research blog fascinating.
The fact that I've already admitted 3 things here should be a sign that I'm a pretty open person.
-So awesome it hurts
-Looking for something real
-An animal lover
- You think you can give me a challenge on the dance floor :P
-Like to stay fit
-A high EQ haver
-Kind of a big deal
-Feeling like sending me a message!
Most of all you're looking for a guy who's fun to be around, treats you like a lady and values chivalry, has his life together, cares about what he does with his life, is communicative, easygoing, genuine, and evolved, but masculine and passionate at the same time.
As for me I'm looking to meet someone I can enjoy my time with, ideally someone who is fun, intelligent, caring, stylish, classy and laid-back, sees the glass as half full (if not overflowing at times), and is up for exploring the sights, sounds, and flavors of the city, and maybe spending some relaxing nights at home. Obviously no one is perfect (including me of course), but I'm looking for the girl who's perfect for me, and these are the kind of things I find attractive in a woman. In a perfect world I'd like to meet a woman I adore, respect, desire, and admire - and who feels the same way about me.
If you've made it this far, you should probably just send me a message anyway to make all that laborious reading worth your while :)
