I keep rewriting this because who am has changed a lot over time..
I love to cook, and to eat at new places, enjoy climbing and hiking
and being outdoors in all kinds of weather. I live for great coffee
and new experiences and I am here because I don't have much time to
date, I don't go to bars, andsince I don't drink, the whole club
scene isn't my thing. I've owned an espresso bar, gone back later
in life and graduated college, lived in Yosemite and Mammoth Lakes
(I used to climb about 100 days a year), gone from young republican
to older liberal, and basically want someone to laugh with, share a
meal with and have an intelligent friendship with if we click. I
want a great date friend that doesn't need the time investment of a
What I’m doing with my life
Trying to read more, exercise more, eat at different places, get
into the city more often, have sex more frequently and get
I’m really good at
Cooking, trying new things (food, books, activities etc), being
playfully cynical and finding both the good and awful in everyone
The first things people usually notice about me
That while I don't smile as my default expression, when I do it's
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I read move articles than books (short attention span?), but am
currently reading Junot Diaz and before that several books on
meditation. Love the movies, especially good crime, action, mystery
stuff but also well done dramas. Can enjoy some comedies but I
don't really get the fascination with Will Ferrell. My musical
tastes are stuck in decades past, my first concert was the Talking
Heads in '83 and not much will ever compare to that. I will go to
the Fillmore to see just about anyone.
The six things I could never do without
A functioning kitchen
The beauty of women
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to have sex and fun and laughter and work and joy and peace and
health and family and a clean home and pay the bills and read all
the books on my shelf and travel where I want to go and eat at all
the great places here and stay in touch with all my friends and
still sleep 7 hours a night.
On a typical Friday night I am
Working or watching a movie or reading or cooking or eating out or
just home relaxing after working too many hours.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have a freckle fetish.
