One of my friends called me "the guy you marry, not the guy you
date." I'm still not entirely sure what it meant. Was it a
compliment? I think I'm a nice guy. Definitely not an emotional
I value honesty & communication. You will always know where you
stand with me.
I love wandering around the City finding interesting little nooks
& crannies, being outdoors, watching movies, making dinner
together, and a bunch of other random little things. I do enjoy
doing community service, and am a strong beliver that we should

I love repartee. I love talking and joking back & forth. My
friends are all smart & funny, and just hanging around with
them shooting the breeze can be a great day (especially if picnics
What I’m doing with my life

6. My bike
I spend a lot of time thinking about

Why we call them pineapples, when the rest of the world calls them something like Ananas (their proper name)
On a typical Friday night I am
Usually home decompressing. Maybe catching up on my Tivo or

You should message me if
You love finding hole in the wall restaurants and exploring the Bay
Area. You are not a big club person (except for the odd 80s dance
party. Heh.) You love people, and personal interactions. You are a
good communicator, and are honest with your partner.
Wouldn't hurt if you like minigolf, and one day want to be my
partner on the Amazing Race.
