Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am a down to earth, strong, successful man with a good life and a
good career. I also have a big heart, nice arms to hold on to you
(and I love to be held) and plenty of good will to go around. I
value diversity and respect for people and try to treat people as I
would like to be treated.
Beyond that, I grew up in the south (TN, GA, NC) though I have
lived in CA for 18 years or so (4 in San Diego, 14 in San
For dates and companionship, I enjoy the usuals - good food (in or
out), good friends and good fun - from movies, tv, reading,
languages and music to outdoorsy stuff like riding bikes, hiking,
road trips and travel.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am constantly learning and growing and focusing on being the best
"me" that I can be.
Very much career-focused as of late and very passionate about my
work projects. I work in Product Development for a major
Also, trying to take good care of my physical and emotional health
- gym, yoga, meditation, quality "me" time.
I love pets and always have. In 2010, I adopted a cat named Sam. I
didn't know I was a cat person until Sam came along. Then I adopted
Ben in late 2011. I like dogs too though. My "boys" have definitely
been a great addition to my life and they tend to like pretty much
everyone. My felines are sort of dog-like when it comes to meeting
people. I also have a passion for my 175 gallon mixed reef
saltwater aquarium. I am creating a micro ecosystem and my own mini
coral reef in my home.
I just took up SCUBA in Dec 2014 and have my Advanced Open Water
cert through PADI. I love day trips or weekend trips to Monterey
and plan to do a lot more global trekking to enjoy the sport.
Always excited to travel when the opportunity presents itself. I
have been to Europe and South/Central America, Australia, Canada
and most US states.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Going with the flow
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I am happiest when I am reading a good book. I like everything from
John Grisham, Stephen King, Dan Brown and beyond. I'll read
self-help, comedy, classics...no limits really and I tend to follow
along from friend's recommendations. Best self-help book ever
(IMHO) "The Velvet Rage." Do yourself a favor and give it a
I love going to the movies or watching Netflix at home. Lately, I
have been watching a lot of documentaries...but again, my tastes
run the full spectrum. I like Indies and I like blockbusters.
I used to not watch TV much but lately have picked up several
series that I watch when time allows. I usually watch TV on my DVR
on Sunday evenings.
I live and die by my iTunes and it is smattered with oldies from
all of the past several decades as well as dance, jazz, world, rock
n roll, hip hop, ambient grooves, electronica, pop...I love music
and I even sing with the San Francisco Gay Men's Chorus and have
done for 14 years now.
I lean to the vegetarian side of the palate when it comes to food.
I was raised a vegetarian and though I do eat some meat and
definitely eat eggs/dairy, I am extremely picky when it comes to
the omnivorous/carnivorous side of things. I like all kinds of
ethnic foods though - love Mexican, Chinese, Italian and
Californian the most probably. One of my favorite dates is sharing
a good meal with a nice bottle of wine and getting to know each
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How I can contribute to making the world a better place and how
best to carve out a peaceful, safe, comfortable niche for
I also am pondering my relationship future a lot and really am
putting out intentions to find my special man. I have thought
through what he might be like quite a bit.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Usually I hit the gym after work and then will meet a friend or
friends for food and drink. Sometimes, I make it an early one if it
has been a grueling work week.
