My self-summary
*** I am taking a break from OkCupid for the moment. I may have a connection with someone. Ok, I definitely have a connection and I am taking some time to see where it goes. ***

I am a creative and passionate person. I recently moved to the Bay Area. I'm a focused guy, spending my days developing a book publishing startup in one of the top accelerators.

If we were together and I had one minute to make an impression And I was being reeeaaaallly honest with you, I would look you in the eyes, smile and say...

I don't Really do small talk well, so let's get to it.

It will probably never work out between us. Beyond the statics and the fact that you can tap or swipe me into your past...

You need to get away from me right now. I expect too much in a relationship. I don't want another new friend, a date or two or to hook up. I'm not looking to "get some" or for an eventual score or one night stand.

I want to find someone I can get to know in every way. To share the whole range of passions - simple and plutonic and all the rest - with every day and for the rest of my life. A thousand inside jokes and ten thousand sweet nothings that add up to something beyond special.

Please turn and run right now if you don't care about being your best physically and spiritually. I will push you to follow What is good and right in everything you do. I will expect you to patiently call me back to the truth when I go astray.

I will expect that we have a whole range of activities and experiences together and friends, work and a life outside of the two of us. Travel, volunteering, entertainment, sports, quiet times and enough rest to recharge and be able to give to each other and the world.

I will demand that we use our money, time and possessions wisely, because it is not ours but God's. We are only the stewards.

I will love, honor and respect you beyond all others except God but I will want nothing less from you. I will do all I can to provide a safe secure environment for you to be free to be yourself but you will not be free to give your affections to anyone else.

Get away from me now. This will probably never work out. :-)

Still around? Now then, what kind of coffee can I order you?

The above notwithstanding, I'm soft spoken, easy going, thoughtful and fun. That kind of fun like being tickled but right before it becomes completely annoying and painful. Yes, I'm almost painfully fun. That's what I'm saying. And I'm sticking to it. If you want fun to the point of (almost) pain. I'm your guy!

I have no problem making the first move, but you found this, read this far and you are interested, I would appreciate you letting me know. I can do a lot, but I can't read minds.

All the best in your search!
