I'm not on Facebook so I can't use Tinder. Darn.
I have been to 35 countries including Cuba and the Galapagos (ok, not a country) (My love for Kurt Vonnegut brought me there)
I genuinely give a shit about people
I don't feel the need to write my life's story online (that's what getting to know someone is for) , but I would be remiss if I didn't give some basics.
So...if anything in here sounds good to you, please feel free to send me a vague message that leaves me confused as to your level of interest.
I also give my Muni seat to old people and pregnant ladies....AND I don't mind when elderly Chinese women push me out of the way to get on the train first. I actually find it endearing.
T.V. Curb Your Enthusiasm, Mad Men, The Wire, Arrested Development, Breaking Bad, zombie stuff
Music: Miles Davis, Coltrane, Freddie Hubbard, Dexter Gordon, Nina Simone, Ella of course, The Beatles, The Clash, The Smiths, Massive Attack, Blur, Oasis, Dylan, Belle & Sebastian, Joy Division (I have a problem buying first pressing Joy Division albums. I need help) Stone Roses, any Brit Pop really, ELO, Tom Waits, LCD Soundsystem, Neil Diamond, Van Morrison, Big Star, Sam Cooke, Ray LaMontagne, Elvis Costello, Sinatra, Dean Martin, Bobby Darin, Yacht Rock, U2, Stereolab, PUSSY RIOT, ok enough....
Movies: Classics, Classics, Film Noir, John Hughes, if you see a Star Wars poster in my house and you think I'm a dork, it's my roommate's (ok so I don't have a roommate) I don't have enough space for this category.........Find out when we meet.
2. my music
4. painting (art, not house painting, I HATE doing that)
5. exercise.. surfing, bikes, gym, etc
6. NPR/PBS (I swear I am not a snob)
Global warming. We need to collectively wake up! I can't believe how many of my fellow countrymen don't take this seriously.
The accelerated rate of developing technology and society's inability to deal with it. (or even acknowledge that it may be a problem) Our collective diminishing attention span is alarming. If you have read this far you are clearly not one of these people.
On a lighter note: How is it that the food is fantastic here in SF, BUT I can't seem to find Mexican food as good as in L.A. or San Diego?
For some reason it bothers me when people say "I could care less." It's "couldn't."
Also, vocal fry. What's the deal with this? Look it up. You will understand.
Finally. A question to you. If you were in a movie and your character fell in love, what would be the "we are spending time together and falling for each other" montage theme music?
Amen Natalie. Amen
Meeting friends at a dive bar for a couple of drinks whilst avoiding hipsters (try to guess in which neighborhood that would be)
OR if I am tired, watching Bill Maher.
Trying to fix things in my house. I don't miss renting, but a home is a demanding mistress.
Lately I have been listening to Carole King's Tapestry. What an amazing record!
Also my alarm is set to "I Got You Babe" so every weekday I get up like I'm Bill Murray in Groundhog Day. Really.
You want to go see live music. (In any form)
You want to go to museums with me
You want a surf buddy
You have a dog
You also genuinely give a shit about people
You are French or Middle Eastern. Or both. (That is not to say you shouldn't message me if you are not)
You might want to find someone with whom you can spend some quality time. No FOMOs* please. I know that the Internet provides seemingly limitless suiters, however that way of thinking is a slippery slope....
Also, please...NO SMOKERS (sorry. I am very easy going but I just can't get past that)
*FOMO stands for fear of missing out. People that date all the time but get bored with others quickly because they always think they are missing something better. It's kinda like ADD dating. Online dating sometimes encourages this behavior.
** Amendment: To all the under 25 ladies. I appreciate the interest. You are probably awesome, but I'm in a different place and so should you be:)
