My self-summary

I smile and laugh...a lot. Honestly, I'm not sure how some people live without a good sense of humor. Life was never meant to be taken too seriously.

I moved from South Bay to San Francisco a few years ago yet I still have only seen a small fraction of the places to see here. Would be great to find someone to experience the rest of it with. Work keeps me pretty busy, but I always try to make time for relaxation too.

I've been living in California since 2006. I moved out with four of my friends from the East Coast. I like to read. I also like to swim, play tennis, and hike. To chill out, I usually play video games (WoW was my vice for years, League of Legends is a consistent favorite, and im never one to turn down a round of Just Dance). I try to break the stereotype set by South Park :) I also love playing board games with friends when we're having a night in (BSG, Eldritch Horror or Race for the Galaxy anyone?)

I enjoy lifting at the gym whenever I need to zone out and de-stress (which seems to be about 4-5 times a week these days). I started skiing a few years ago and now I wish Tahoe wasn't 4 hours away ⛷

I'm looking for someone to just have fun and do things with. I'm not looking for a one-night relationship, but I'm not sure I'm looking for a life-long one yet either.

What I’m doing with my life
I come from Massachusetts, worked for a year in New York City and now live in California after getting a job with four of my friends. I currently live in San Francisco around Castro and work with a startup that I founded a couple years ago with two of my friends (I'm an engineer and love what I do). So yeah - I try to keep myself pretty busy. I would love to travel (especially to Japan) but life has been hard to schedule around.
I’m really good at
Turning the other cheek. Although, some of my friends fear that one day I'll just snap and it'll be like Texas Chainsaw Massacre or something. I doubt it.

Oh also, you know when people are talking in a circle and someone shows up on the outside? I am *really* good at moving around to make the circle include them.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm pretty quiet - but that's not really something you "notice" right away I guess.

The most frequent first comment I get is usually about my arms. I commonly handle it in with some mix of humility and awkwardness.

Video Games: FF (VI is still my favorite, but they're all worth playing), Zelda (Link to the Past and Ocarina are both classics), Braid (god this game is so awesome), MMOGs, TF2 (I'm not that great, but that's what Medic is for, right?!), lots of others... I promise I don't spend all my time playing video games though :)

Six things I could never do without
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Words and language. I love reading things that are well written.
On a typical Friday night I am
Deciding whether to go out with friends or stay home in my sweatpants and play games. It's often a difficult decision.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm a little bit exhibitionist, a little bit voyeur, and a lot bit normal. Since I came out, I have been an incredibly open book. I'll pretty much answer any question :)

Also, I cry really easily (not from being sad). And I have no problem with that fact.
You should message me if
You are some combination of: smart, cute, sly, interesting, vivacious, silly, funny, quick, playful, active, and cool. Or, if you feel like it. Either way...

Also, at the risk of over-generalization but hopefully in the interest of not wasting anyone's time, I should say up front that I'm generally attracted mostly to white and latin guys. That doesn't mean you shouldn't message me if you're some other ethnicity, but just something to be aware of :)
