really hope you find that person who is perfect for you. We all
deserve it. So here's the deal. I am looking to settle down with
someone I can really connect with. At the very least, perhaps I will have a meaningful relationship where that could be an option.
I am a former Peace Corps Volunteer, high school teacher, and L.A. transplant.
I don't feel the need to write my life's story online (that's what
getting to know someone is for) , but I would be remiss if I didn't
give some basics.
10 Reasons Why you should date me:
1) I am a good human being. Not a mean bone in my body
2) I own my own home. Stability is important.
3) I have great relationships with family and friends.
4) I have a good career. No deadbeat here.
5) I am completely comfortable with myself and my life. No midlife crisis pending.
6) I am not afraid of commitment.
7) I have been to 35 different countries so I am well traveled and able to adapt to various situations.
8) I have a variety of interests and am open to new ones.
9) I'm not moody
10) What you see is what you get. I am very direct and don't bullshit.
On a side note, I'm not sure how this online dating thing works, but I'm worth having a drink with if only because there are probably not a whole lot of single men who are healthy, happy, well adjusted, six foot tall professionals that actually want to be in a relationship and get married. Just saying........
I also give my Muni seat to old people and pregnant ladies....AND I don't mind when elderly Chinese women push me out of the way to get on the train first. I actually find it endearing.
T.V. Curb Your Enthusiasm, Mad Men, The Wire, Arrested Development, Breaking Bad
Music: Miles Davis, Coltrane, Freddie Hubbard, Dexter Gordon, Nina Simone, Ella of course, The Beatles, The Clash, The Smiths, Blur, Oasis, Dylan, Belle & Sebastian, Stone Roses, Any Brit Pop really, ELO, Tom Waits, Neil Diamond, Van Morrison, Big Star, Sam Cooke, Ray LaMontagne, Elvis Costello, Sinatra, Dean Martin, Bobby Darin, Yacht Rock, U2, Stereolab, PUSSY RIOT, ok enough....
Movies: Classics, Classics, John Hughes, if you see a Star Wars poster in my house and you think I'm a dork, it's my roommate's (ok so I don't have a roommate) I don't have enough space for this category.........Find out when we meet.
2. my music
4. painting (art, not house painting, I HATE doing that)
5. exercise.. surfing, bikes, gym, etc
6. NPR/PBS (I swear I am not a snob)
On a lighter note: How is it that the food is fantastic here in SF, BUT I can't seem to find Mexican food as good as in L.A. or San Diego?
OR if I am tired, watching Bill Maher.
Also my alarm is set to "I Got You Babe" so every weekday I get up like I'm Bill Murray in Groundhog Day. Really.
Also, please...NO SMOKERS (sorry. I am very easy going but I just can't get past that)
Here is what I am looking for (and it should be noted that I will reciprocate) :
I want to meet a woman with whom I can explore the world with while still enjoying all the little things that make life meaningful.
I want to be with someone who will go to see live music and museums with me.
I want to completely drop pretenses, expose my eccentricities (we all have them), and just be me without being judged.
I want to be excited when receiving a call or text
I want to look forward to spending time together.
Being together should not be "work." (That does not mean there is no effort)
In short, I want someone to come home to and talk about my hopes (and problems) with before I turn out the lights.....
** Amendment: To all the under 25 ladies. I appreciate the interest. You are probably awesome, but I'm in a different place and so should you be:)
