I'm a masculine, nice guy here, born and raised in Texas but spent about nine years of my adult life on the East Coast - some in Philadelphia and then in New York City. I am an attorney, which keeps me fairly busy. In my free time I like to hike, watch movies, try out new restaurants and bars, play tennis, camping, traveling, and just about anything else with friends or a significant other. I'm also a little on the geeky side -- love technology and sci-fi shows.
I am a bit of a political junkie. I tend to follow politics the way a lot of guys follow sports. Although I have some pretty passionate stances on a lot of issues, I have good friends of all political persuasions -- that gives me the opportunity to debate stuff on a regular basis. While I am a liberal, I am definitely down with dating someone with different political viewpoints from myself. If nothing else, it keeps a relationship interesting!
My favorite movies include Pan's Labrynth, Mad Max: Road Fury, Gattaca, Midnight Special, Todo Sobre mi Madre, The Dark Knight, Volver, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, The Lives of Others, The Children's Hour, Blade Runner, Silence of the Lambs. I also have a special place in my heart for really bad movies - movies so bad you just want to drink beer and laugh at them (think "The Room", for example).
Food-wise I'm definitely into Tex-Mex and Italian.
Music is hard to peg with me. Not much into pop, but definitely like adult alternative, stuff from the 90s and rock.

Someone who is emotionally mature is a must - I am only interested in dating someone who has his life together. Physically, attracted to a lot of different types, but do prefer someone with a healthy BMI.
