My self-summary
I'm a city slicker with a bit of a sarcastic wit. I was born in San Francisco. My two biggest loves in life are running and photography. I do a lot of running. I like to stay physically fit which usually involves a lot of time running around Lake Merced or at Land's End. I just love running, period. 90% of my waking life is in San Francisco while the remaining 10% is spent at home sleeping. I reside in my home in South San Francisco. I also do voluntary work at UCSF usually once a month on my free time. As for my extra-curricular activities on the side, I LOVE San Francisco and doing things there (armed with running shoes, of course). I like positive and funny people.

Update - 12/16/2013: Is there something about taking a self-portrait using the bathroom mirror that makes one's dating profile more appealing? Sometimes I log on here to check out some hilarious 'selfies'. There are a few where you can actually see the toilet in the background. So sexy, I tell ya.
What I’m doing with my life
I love running, helping others and hanging out with my friends. I used to be an amateur freelance photographer, but now I just take photos for fun. My friends ARE my family and I don't know what I'd do without them. I'm at that point in my life where I'm trying not to take everything personal.

I may not be perfect, but I try my best to be honest to not only the people around me (to the best of my ability) but to myself.

Update - 12/07/2013: Just an observation. I seem to get along really well with people I interact with here who have 'low' OKC match ratings with me. And then, it just seems that I clash (sometimes, not always) with people who I have 'high' match ratings with. I almost NEVER go by the "match ratings" here on OKC. To me, there are just 2 results when it comes to matching: We either get along, or we don't. Period. No percentages required! :-P
I’m really good at
Listening. It sounds too good to be true, but it's true. One of my main focuses when it comes to interaction with people is the communication aspect of it all. I also like to admit that I don't dwell on the past (or my past) too much. I'm more of a right here, right now and what's in front of me kinda guy. My past is what I refer to occasionally; it's not something I live in.
The first things people usually notice about me
People who barely know me or just got to know make the assumption that I'm this square and innocent looking guy. When I'm really not. I have a profanity switch that I can flip on or off at the drop of a dime and my whole shoulder is one big tattoo. A quote that best describes me is this: "You'll find I'm full of surprises."
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'm definitely a Charles Bukowski fan. There are other writers and poets like Hunter S. Thompson, George Orwell, Robert Frost, philosophy from Nietzsche, Kant and I relate to Darwin but I don't totally agree with his ideas, I read a lot of Theists vs. Atheists debates, and The Catcher in the Rye.

I don't watch as much television as I used to when I was in my 20s, but when I did, it was all about the X-Files & old Twilight Zone episodes. I loved both seasons of Spaced (hit BBC comedy series in the U.K. that made its debut in early 1999). Recently, the only TV show I have time to watch on a regular basis is Mad Men. Great TV show!

I enjoy practically ANY kind of music, and I mean ANY (except Beatles, ask me why if you're curious - lol). I'll listen mostly to alternative, to classical, ska, to rap, to mostly old school hip hop, trip hop, rockabilly music, big band, classical, etc. etc. etc. I don't dig gospel or some country (except for maybe Johnny Cash). I love the Smiths.
The six things I could never do without
1. My friends/family
2. Good communication (I am horrible when it comes to communicating via text or email. "Tell me what you want to say, don't text me."
3. My self-respect/dignity
4. Honesty
5. My dog
6. Living in the moment
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I try to think about others and how they're doing in general (or at least to the best of my ability). I try not to think too much about myself and focus on taking action and following through.

Update: My tolerance for uncool things happening to me in my recent romantic endeavors has dwindled over the years. I've been working on spotting red flags sooner and taking action immediately rather than later. It's a work in progress for me. I've been guilty of acting on impulse (aka: shooting from the hip) which tends to get me into unintended jams. So lately, I've been going about my love/hate relationship with OkCupid very lightly.
On a typical Friday night I am
I generally hit the town (San Francisco) to either watch a live band at a local bar/club, watch a movie, play billiards with friends, check out any local events, etc. etc.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
You'll have to ask me personally. You'll find I'm full of surprises. Then again, if I have to admit something, I guess it would be that I have this pet peeve regarding the usage of acronyms like 'lol' or 'lmao' (I loathe concatenated terms). Argh.....

Lastly, I will admit that I'm pretty skeptical with online dating. In my experience, it has either been hit or miss. I'm content with making new friends but even that has been sporatic via OkCupid. We shall see! :-)
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 25–50
  • Near me
  • Who are single
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
If you have any sort of an interest in hanging out and having a good time. If you like conversations that are engaging and are open for challenges and different points of view. Whatever happens, happens albeit platonic or otherwise. Honesty is a big plus.

I'm not much of a drinker or bar hopper. So if you're looking for a drinking buddy or partner in crime at wine tasting venues, I may not be the right person for you to engage in those types of activities.

The most important trip you may take in life is meeting people halfway. It all starts with a simple 'hello'
