My self-summary
Oh, good! I've been waiting to talk about myself all day. :-)

I live in SF, and an often in LA and NYC. Visiting Chicago and Dallas this week.

I'm someone who recognizes the value of relationships and believes they are about giving rather than taking. My previous boyfriend called me "one of the most generous, caring people" he's known, and I'm very proud of that.

Personal growth is important to me, and it's important to me that my partner is comfortable with change, extremely positive, and supportive of goals. I tend to prefer people who equate optimism with realism rather than negativity with realism. As the saying goes, you're right either way. I grew up in sports, so I need someone who understands being a teammate.

I have a serious goofy side and sense of humor. I love to sing at the top of my lungs, enjoy things that others consider bad, and laugh at dumb jokes (often my own). While I'm into the new age personal improvement stuff, I also live by tried-and-true proverbs such as "man with hand in pocket feel cocky all day."

Sexual as well as emotional growth in a relationship is important to me. I'd like my bond with my partner to be equal parts heart and brain. Ideally, passion and dedication are intertwined.

That said, I'm beginning to understand that character is the most important of all traits in a partner. And, within character, I look for honesty. It's the foundation.
What I’m doing with my life
Tech Entrepreneur
I’m really good at
Creating and sharing experiences that are uniquely ours.

The first things people usually notice about me
I usually approach people first. So, probably the first thing they pay attention to is what I say.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I read this the other day - the Missing Piece and the Big O by Shel Silverstein: . Check it out if you haven't read it recently.

I read some blogs like Techcrunch and Towleroad.

Loved the movie "Beginners," and the quoted part in it from the Velveteen Rabbit:
"The stuffed rabbit asked, 'What is real? Does it hurt?' And the horse said, 'Sometimes.' 'Does it happen all at once?' 'It takes a long time. Generally, by the the time you are real, most of your hair has been loved off, your eyes dropped out, and you get loose in the joints. But these things don't matter because you are real. You can't be ugly except to people who don't understand.'"

I've read so many good books - I don't read a lot anymore but enjoy them when I do. More of a non-fiction than a fiction guy, though now the Joy Luck Club comes to mind, perhaps b/c of the my move West. If you haven't read the one-page prologue: .

That love is all there is,
Is all we know of love.
The six things I could never do without
- Someone to hold / being big spoon
- Long, hot showers (solo - I just like to relax)
- Laughter and tears
- Learning about who I'm with and hearing what he has to say
- Change
- Forgiveness
- Crack cocaine
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Self improvement.
On a typical Friday night I am
Somehow this question reminds me of Downton Abbey..."What is a 'week-end'"? (

Work until 6pm, gym until 7:30, meet up with friends by 9.
I also love just relaxing / kicking back after a long day / kicking my feet up.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I practice unsafe removal of USB's.

And: I broke some hearts, then mine was broken.

I listened to a relationship talk last year where the speaker asked us to write down things we look for. I wrote that I'd like a partner who is giving, loving, open, and receptive. Traits that I feel I can fulfill are that I am caretaking, confident, creative, loving, trustworthy, and communicative. OkCupid also took it upon itself to list out my personality traits on a tab above - from more dominant to more compassionate to less well-mannered (whoops) - check them out. Since people ask: top, if it gets to that.
