Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
At 33, maybe for the first time I am truly open to life and
anything it may bring. I have a home where I come from but I don't
yet have a home where I will go to. I don't know where I will be,
what I will be, who I will be with and its all ok by me.
I have a stable life thanks to the years of sincere hard work being
what I was expected to be. Diligent, polite, responsible. I really
have a good foundation. Now I want to learn how to fly. I have been
to every corner of the Bay Area but I want to see it again. Through
your eyes. I want to know how you live, what moves you and hear all
your stories. I can't say that I am ready for love and marriage but
I am ready for exploration, conversations over coffee, discovering
hidden paths in the woods, going to the museum, talking about the
movies and what to eat.
Abandon. Is a good word to describe my state of being
I like old stuff. Old cameras, old lamps, old films, old music, old
maps. I love old, decrepit theaters with optical projection
systems. And older women, yes. I find them alluring.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You like surprises. I'm full of 'em. You have at least one picture
where you're not pouting or making a weird face. If you're a
biologist, Im already listening. In general I heavily lean towards
scientists and artists but those who have a sense of balance. Or if
you're just a person who does some job that's not terribly
important to you. I've generally not found a connection with
heavily corporate or financial types. I dislike saying this but
this has been my experience.
