Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
September update: Holy crap I'm back on here and wow this is
outdated. I'm *not* looking for anything serious right now, just
some fun, unless you have a husky then I will serious the shit out
of you. But I'm... not going to edit all this. I think it'll be
more fun to see it with old and new. I also promise to still be
brutally honest to everyone who messages me. wheeeee
January '14 update: Gonna try something new -- gonna respond to
every single message I get, no matter what. I'm not a fan of "write
something creative" or "get my attention" caveats in profiles.
Seems to me that's people hiding behind not wanting to offend
someone else. So here's the deal: if you send me a message I
promise two things: 1) to respond, and 2) to be brutally honest
about what I'm thinking.
December '13 update: Reactivated my account now that I have some
personal time again. I'm now responding a lot less often. Everyone
on here is so nice but I am starting a company and to be straight I
just really know what I want — here's the skinny:
- I actually don't read profiles really thoroughly, I like to get
to know someone in person. If you're my type then let's skip all
the chatting and meet for coffee.
- I surround myself with ambitious people. I want an ambitious
partner. You don't need to be a rock climber (like everyone else on
OKC) or a CEO. Ambition comes in many forms.
- I want a confident partner. I'm a firm believer in "Only when
you're happy with yourself can you be happy in a relationship." And
I realize age is not always a factor in knowing one's self.
Also feel free to say hi just because, or if something in my
profile really piqued your interest. Just know that if you're not
looking for a relationship we're probably not going to meet
Originally from Minnesota, moved to SF a few years ago and love
every day in it. I moved to SF for the ocean, bay, and the startup
scene and never looked back. I'll always love the Midwest but I
consider SF my home.
I love my job, which makes life tough because I'm definitely a fan
of traveling. I studied abroad in Greece, Turkey, China, and Japan
in college and I still get out of the country at least once a year,
whether to Spain, Thailand, or cheating by going to Hawaii.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Spent the last few years out of the dating pool and focusing on
myself. I was an early employee at a fairly veteran startup
(oxymoron?) and currently am starting my own company. And I have an
ambitious side project or two.
I try to get out on or near the water as much as I can. The best
option is sailing but walking down the Embarcadero or biking over
the bridge to Sausalito for a day trip are never bad choices
either. I live in Oakland/Lake Merritt right now.

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Life is extremely short and I've had some experiences over the past
several years which have reminded me of that. That's always on the
top of my mind so I'm looking to make every day count.
