Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I was starting to date a girl several years ago, but she introduced
me to my spiritual path instead. First time the "meet my friend"
thing has actually worked out for me.
I'm still very much a normal guy -- I've started businesses, I go
to the gym, I listen to 90s R&B -- but now I try to remember
that life itself isn't what matters so much as what life does to
open my heart. (The fact that this sounds more enlightened than
fruity to me is a sure sign of my progress).
And while I'm remarkably happy leading a pretty unremarkable life
-- I've done both, I know the difference -- a sweet, playful, open
presence in my world would be a wonderful bonus. Of course, I could
always go get one of those today; but they'd pee on the floor and
chew the couch, which I'm betting you've already outgrown. At least
when you haven't been drinking.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Do you remember that sketch "Hey Mon!" from In Living Color -- the
family where everyone has like 14 jobs... I'm their adopted
After writing a couple of (published) books, starting a training
business, launching a baby clothes brand (with my mom) and creating
a line of novelty apparel, today I'm hustling in the advertising
industry, learning video editing, and ...*wince*... shopping a
script. But this one's different, I'm telling you!
The first things people usually notice about me

My energy. I remember one time I went to my buddy's house for a
family party after a meditation workshop, and his mom told me she
saw light radiating and thought I looked like Jesus. Granted, she
was kind of drunk, but...
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

You know that time you *finally* got reservations at Animal on
Fairfax, and spent $100 on rabbit legs and poutine? Cool, because
that's never happened to me.
More my speed: simple / clean / healthy cooking @ home or little
holes-in-the-wall (especially sushi), followed by live jazz, ice
skating, improv shows -- recently took a class at UCB and am going
back for seconds -- readings & lectures, throwback hip-hop
nights, movie marathons (Will Ferrell and fart jokes always
appreciated), and dancing like a spaz to new wave 80s. Which is on
purpose, mind you; I can move with uncommonly good rhythm for a
As far as TV goes, Netflix is my homeboy (can't believe I missed
"Chuck" before), and book-wise I generally have a few in rotation.
But I'm trying to be more of a "doer" these days vs. the theorist
UCLA trained me to be. Apart from books about stuff like prison and
heat stroke, I'm finding it's usually better this way.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. My connection to God / Source / Universe (you pick the
2. Silliness and nonsense
3. A passion
4. Harmony at home
5. Sunny days and morning coffee
*#6 applies only to one woman, who may or may not be you. And,
statistically speaking, probably not you. But say hi anyway :)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Stuff I shouldn't. You've just got to trust in your path and let
go... How much do we really think we can accomplish in our bed in
the middle of the night? I mean, alone.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Just like Thursday: happy.
I'm also probably at the house, to be honest, and especially if
there's a Kings game on (that started at age 12). I'm not a bar
scene guy -- not even in college -- and my close friends are
married / with kids, which should be self-explanatory for you.
Truth is, I'm pretty content being alone; maybe even to a fault.
This should do wonders for your jealousy issues.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

I don't know how to accept love nearly like how I know how to give
it... Looking for my teacher here.

Basically, you've made it this far and are saying to yourself,
"Holy sh**, that's me but a guy!"
Or more specifically, you're a girl who's genuinely fulfilled by
the simple things in life, and who sees the greater beauty,
meaning, and purpose of this big spinning rock we're on. You want
to come explore with me -- our inside worlds just as much as
outside -- and then come back home and buy groceries. If we happen
to go to Europe (which we'd probably happen to), that's gravy; the
real joy comes from the growth of our spirits, which can be an
every-moment reality if you pay attention... That, and you also
like to wear those little boy short things around the house. Drives
Oh, and I'm closer to 5'11", but rounded down for honesty. In the
place where you get least rewarded for being honest.
