Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I read an article in the New York Times a while ago about spending
and it's effect on happiness, and one of the major points of it was
the idea of simplification and spending for an experience versus
material goods. That being said, the simple things, sentimental or
not, are the way to my heart. (insert sappy waa waa here)
My friends say I'm a catch and whoever I find will be a lucky
guy....I love my friends. There's nothing wrong with being silly
with people, enjoying the time you have and experiencing life to
it's fullest. I've come to surround myself with positive people
that bring great friendship to the table, who have things to teach
me, and don't necessarily have the same exact interests as me. I
like to share my ideas, go places that I normally wouldn't, and
expand my horizons.
Being a native East Coaster, I don't fit the usual Orange County
mold and often find myself traveling outside the Orange Curtain
often to escape the things that I'm not a fan of, mainly
materialism, not-so-pleasent attitudes and flakey, fake people (I
know this is a generalization, but if there's people not like that
here...where are you?!) I've found myself now in Long Beach where
I'm thriving off the culture and diversity around me. I forgot how
much this stuff is needed in day to day life.
I love and do Art, I find beauty in little things, I can't live
without music, I collect comic books, I can scrap with the rest of
the boys, am incredibly loyal and find myself attracted to guys
that are guys.
Someone that wants to build things, wants to have fun in the world
around them, and isn't bat-shit crazy. Someone that doesn't mind
jumping on my motorcycle with me. If you know what you want,
perfect. Someone that likes to adventure and travel, not afraid to
try new things and has a great personality....shoot me an e-mail
and let's go from there.
Also, if you're on Scruff, Grindr, A4A or the like....it probably
won't work out. As someone pointed out to me recently, everyone
seems to be looking for the next best thing and those things aren't
helping the stable dating/monogamy cause for anyone.
