Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hi! I've been in San Francisco for a few years now and have met
some amazing friends. I'm definitely looking to expand my social
circle and see what else happens. I enjoy the outdoors, concerts,
movies, theater, awesome restaurants...well, just about anything
with good company!
I have been in a few long-term relationships over the years with
amazing, handsome, successful, intelligent men (the last being
about 5 years long and ended 3 years ago). Of course, we weren't
the right folks for each other or heck, I wouldn't be here! I have
learned tremendously from each of these experiences and I'm excited
to see what the future holds. A key conclusion I've derived from
this is that while I'm relationship oriented, getting to know
someone well prior to jumping-in is paramount.
I appreciate many combinations of the following qualities:
Intelligent, handsome, caring, enjoys some combination of gym time
and/or run, bike or swim, good communicator, is a good friend,
positive attitude, seeks to understand, has compassion and empathy
for those that haven't been as fortunate... That being said, I
could only ever articulate 50% of the qualities that result in
attraction. At the end of the day, the relationships I've been in
have just happened because they were meant to be. It didn't require
a lot of thought, force or analytics. It just happened easily. I
expect the same will occur when next it happens.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm loving what every new twist and turn brings. As I've mentioned,
the latest twist has brought me to San Francisco. I work for a well
known biotech company on the peninsula and it's been a great
experience for which I'm very grateful. I frequently have to work
more hours than I would like, but I'm always striving to establish
a healthy balance. In whatever I do, be it professional or
personal, I always try to do my best and give it my all.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
getting a sense of people fairly quickly. Which leads me to the
other thing I'm really good at...ignoring my gut for a handsome
face. Doh! Haha! At least it keeps it interesting.

Well, when I'm walking or running my dog, it's that he has two

Movies -definitely love movies but I also rarely remember the
content of what I've seen two weeks after I've seen it. Haha!
TV - to be honest, I only watch it socially which is rare. I do
invite friends over for netflix or apple TV nights occasionally. If
I know a TV show, it's usually because I've watched it on a plane.
I do have a nice new TV hanging on the wall though! Consider it
post-modern art (Art smarties - please don't get all specific with
my choice of genres, it's just a joke).
Food - Let's get this out of the way. Yes, I'm a vegetarian and
it's been for over 20 years. I don't give a damn what you choose to
eat and have never been in a serious relationship with a
vegetarian. Simply know that I am and be respectful of that. Enough

Memories of my experiences and those in my life who've passed
Being active outside
Warm summers (oh wait... never mind. Haha! At least all I have to
do is get in the car)
I shall leave number six blank for now. (oh wait... it just
occurred to me that I would have a very hard time living without
NPR. Love my KQED, KCFR and WBEZ).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.

learned a lot from friends recently who are amazing at living in
the moment and just experiencing the present. It's a careful
