There are people who can garden in a white T-shirt, and remain spotless.
I am not one of those people.
(I have a change of clothes in my car for life's embellishments.)
All-American Boy with a Twist: I swam NCAA in college, studied abroad and lived 8 years in a Buddhist Monastery.
I like clean-cut, professional, athletic men with open minds and strong values.
I love the California weather, but I'm an East Coast guy at heart: I like guys who are responsible and on-time, fires in the fireplace, game nights and thunderstorms.
Things I look for : Fun(ny), masculine, responsible, athletic, interesting, fit, normal, well-adjusted, non smoking ... OK, handsome and settled would be great too.
At 30, I left a Monastery, where I studied directly after college. At 40, I left corporate America and started my own business.
Free time is spent exploring local cites, local beaches, restaurants (mom and pop), & scenic roads.
yeah, yeah, yeah, you can say you're too cool for that, I've heard it before, but I've also heard those same guys a week later say Scooter Ride? with a shy goofy grin because they know how much fun it really is.
Calvin and Hobbes... Mr. Watterson totally got what it was like to be 5.
Movies - Zoology, Amelie, Princess Bride, UP, anything by Pixar. I prefer being entertained to being shocked or grossed out.
TV - Dead Like Me, Six Feet Under, Pushing Daisies, SYTYCD, True Blood, Castle, Bones, The Closer. Star Wars Rebels. That said, I'm usually not home to watch TV.
Music - I would go to hear Annie Lennox sing the phonebook. Love Adele, Eva Cassidy... I tend to go for voices with some thought in their lyric over a dance beat - that being said I can fall for catchy bubblegum and be completely unapologetic.
I don't own a single Madonna album and I'm really fine with it. Old-school big band playing in another room? awesome.
Food - I'm a recovering vegetarian - so it should have moo'd recently. and dessert, don't forget dessert, probably something chocolate .
My friends to keep me sane
A sense of humor
People who know how to drive - and less of the people who don't
An amazing burger
ok, that was eight. But the burger was important.
