I value honesty, effective communication, positivity, support to and from love ones and friends, affection, courteousness, passion, being open-minded, and most importantly enjoying life.
I'm seeking a partner, a best friend and ultimately a lover. Definitely someone who shares the same values, but also willing to push me just as I would likewise in learning and understanding new things.
Ideally, having similar interests is desirable, but a person's willingness to try new things is more attractive. Some interests in addition to snowboarding, surfing and design are watching my suffering Lakers, USC Football, Steelers and Dodgers, hiking, bowling, golfing, Soul/Jazzy Hip hop, playing basketball, exploring bars and places to eat, spontaneous photography adventures, so on.
If you enjoy sports though - watching or playing, that's definitely a plus ;).
So if you like what you see or read, don't be shy ;). I do bite, jk.
