We probably know more about each other's sex lives than anyone should likely know before a first date. Hopefully, your photos are current!
If we were to meet by chance, what would you notice about me? I am tall, fit (somewhat compulsive about yoga and exercise classes!) I'm also a food and health writer, restaurant reviewer, and true foodie. I am all about balance. In conversation, you'd hopefully find me engaging, clever, well-read, intelligent, and cultured. I love to travel, try new restaurants. Wine tasting, driving along PCH, an exhibit at Getty Center or LACMA. Short films, documentaries, foreign films, classics, a thought-provoking film. Reading the New York Times with you over Peet's on a Sunday am.
My shortcomings? I sometimes stay up all night writing or engrossed in a book I can't put down. I probably buy too many books on Amazon. I can never remember any of my passwords! And I don't know how to change my oil, change a flat, or drive a stick but I am willing to learn!
You are skilled/talented at flirting and banter. Smart is sexy. You know your way around a museum or restaurant menu. You are an idea guy who is always looking for the next step in whatever you do. You would prefer to get out there than watch reality TV , though there's nothing wrong with cuddling on the couch. You are fit and take care of yourself without being an obsessive raw foodist who carries goji berries in your pocket and harps on the benefits of, I don't know, green smoothies. You are stylish and appreciate that quality in a woman. You are a gentleman.
Perhaps our paths will cross. When it comes to love and romance, my glass is overflowing with champagne. My optimism may be somewhat tempered by slight doubt that one in five meet the love of his/her life online but we can always say we met at a screening or The Hungry Cat.
