My self-summary
Here's a quote directly from my close friend Amanda:

"Mike's quirky, random, and one of my good friends. He know how to make someone laugh, even if it is at his randomness."

In addition, I'd say overall about myself is that besides being one of those few Bay Area natives that still lives here is that I can be pretty driven and intellectual at the same time but also straight forward. There are times when I'm serious, others when I can be humorous but I try to keep a balance. I also tend to have a more positive, optimistic outlook on life.

Back when I was younger, I used to spend more on Fridays and Saturdays with friends frequenting clubs but nowadays I'm more of a social person who spends time at meetups, networking events, group gatherings and trying out a new restaurants I haven't experienced yet. There's nothing I enjoy more than tasty, quality food. I'm not a foodie yet but I'm getting there!

Occasionally I do like to chill at home, watch a movie, etc. but most of the time I have an adventurous side where I like to explore as many locations and cities as I can, learn about their uniqueness, as well as partake in leisure activities. I've been looking to do water skiing for some time so bonus points for you if you have done it before and enjoy it.

You should message me if
You're a working professional like myself, someone who is laid back, enjoys being adventurous as I do and is always down to trying something new. A good balance of being serious and humorous is a plus in my book, as well as having good judgement and getting involved in conversations (even if they're about the silliness things). I also would love more than anything to be with someone who not only is outgoing but also enjoys spending time with my circle of friends as well as me, whether it be at house parties, barbecues or any fun outing in general.

Oh and a sense of humor goes a long way.
