I don't really like describing myself, but I 'll give it a try. This is an internet dating site after all. I'll make it short.
I was born and raised in San Francisco. I spent most of my life in the Bay Area except when I was going to school. When I'm not working, my activities involve movies, spending time with friends for coffee, checking out new restaurants and happy hour places. The other thing that I like to do is to go to small music venues (Cafe Du Nord, Great American Music Hall, Rickshaw Stop, Bottom of the Hill, etc.) and listen to local or up and coming bands.
I'm not much of an outdoors person and have never been camping at all. The closest thing was pitching a tent in the backyard as a kid. When I was in college and the professors would want to hold class outside with the students sitting on the grass, my first thought was always: "What are you--insane? What was the purpose of spending my tuition money on classrooms and chairs?" I really am more of a city person.
I think of myself as easygoing, down to earth, good natured, and generally optimistic. I also think I am a good listener and easy to talk to. Maybe the list is somewhat boring, but I believe that these traits are all true.
I try to look for the good in life, but still try to prepare for the bad in case it happens. I try to be a well-grounded person.
Movies: 500 Days of Summer, Cinema Paradiso, Kung Fu Hustle, 200 lb. Beauty, Arahan, Groundhog Day (I appreciate the "redemption" aspect of the main character). The occasional summer blockbuster, but mostly independent and foreign films.
Music: Pop, indie, contemporary, jazz. Lifehouse, Maroon 5, Lady Gaga, Prince, The Police. Heavy metal is definitely off the list. If you are a metal head, you will have to keep your earphones on.
Books: The Prophet.
Alright, I'll give you one item: Someday I want to add "lottery winner" onto my resume.
