New experiences. An updated profile. A new city. How about some new people in my life?
I've lived in many different places. I grew up in the South, near Memphis, TN. I stayed there until I was 23 when I moved to the Washington, DC area. I stayed in MD for 9 years. I followed my (now) ex to Seattle, WA and stayed there for exactly 3 years. I moved to Sacramento in 2010 and I loved it there. But, the Bay area has more tech job opportunities so I moved to Daly City in 2012. I didn't stay long, however. I moved to Foster City in April 2012 to start a new career.
With all this moving, I've left behind some great friends, but only in the physical sense. All my friends hold a special place in my heart. Thankfully, I get to see most of them about twice a year.
Speaking of friends, I believe in the old saw "Birds of a feather flock together." And looking at my dear friends, they are a lot like me. All are very simple when it comes to the basics in life. Old Navy is preferred over A&F or some other brand. Most hold a bachelors degree and/or are very sharp. Most are computer or gadget geeks. I've never caught any of them in a lie so I believe them to be honest. Most all would enjoy a chat with dinner and drinks over going to a play. Most are evolutionists and not into religion. I am my own person, of course, but it's always an interesting insight to meet one's friends.
Some likes and dislikes and their exceptions:
I love beer. Usually I go for very hoppy, bitter IPAs, but I enjoy Belgian beer from time to time. (Tho Budweiser is like having sex in a canoe; it's fucking close to water.) I enjoy hanging out and chatting with people, especially smart people. I don't like to cook. Eating out is fun for me, but I tend to stay on the low to mid range of restaurants (Chipotle is a regular haunt). I'm not big into art but I love clean, simple and functional designs (think Apple, Porsche/Porsche Design). I don't like traveling that much. I do enjoy Disneyland and Disneyworld.
What I'm looking for on OkCupid.com:
I am NOT looking for a series of hookups. (A "friends with benefits" situation may happen with the right person, however. Nice big booty+++ LOL.) I'm mostly looking for friends. If that friendship evolves into something more, then that's great too.
Oh, and if I contact you and the message is very short, it's because I never know who will respond. I'll try to say something interesting but I don't want to waste keystrokes for a message that may never get a response.
