My name is Ben.
I live in La Selva Beach, a small community about 5 minutes from Watsonville.
I have lived in San Jose most of my life. I spent a couple years in Sonora, a brief stay in the Army, back to San Jose and now La Selva Beach. I really like the area, but almost all of my friends have moved out of the area which kind of sucks.
As my user name implies, I am a scuba diver.
I absolutely love the outdoors and enjoy hiking, backpacking, fishing, hunting, rock climbing and so on. It's been a while, but I also enjoy horseback riding. I did a horse whispering internship some years ago.
I am strongly atheist and I am a gender egalitarian/humanist. That means that I support both men's and women's rights. It also means I get in a lot of arguments with feminists who are trying to shut down any discussion of men's issues. I am looking for someone who supports men's and women's rights, full stop.
I love animals, but due to my fur and feather allergies I prefer reptiles, amphibians, fish and invertebrates. I have a pretty big reptile collection, including several hots.
I am full of creativity, can write fairly well (though I've been told my dialogue needs some work), am a critical thinker and a problem solver.
