I live in SSF, I work in Emeryville as a tech support geek, and I'm finally finishing up grad school at a university in the East Bay. So I'm pretty flexible when it comes to coordinating a date in terms of location. As busy of a schedule as that sounds, I have a knack of making leeway in terms of making room for romance.
If you like tech geeks who love to run and care for their dog, then I'm your man :-P
Update - 08/08/2016: So, just to get this out of the way, I'm an introvert & I'm not at all ashamed for it. However, it gets exhausting when I try to explain myself. Introverts are not anti-social or overly shy. Therefore, here's a link to shed some light on what introverts are (and what they are not):
I enjoy practically ANY kind of music, and I mean ANY (except Beatles, ask me why if you're curious - lol). I'll listen mostly to alternative, to classical, ska, to rap, to mostly old school hip hop, trip hop, rockabilly music, big band, classical, etc. etc. etc. I don't dig gospel or some country (except for maybe Johnny Cash). I love the Smiths.
"What happens when people open their hearts?"
"They get better."
2. Good communication
3. My self-respect/dignity
5. My dog
6. Living in the moment
For me, I try not to take myself AND this site too seriously.
By the way, I don't believe in the "you can tell within the first 5-minutes" approach regarding chemistry or if we'd get along. I'm not a subscriber to the "if there's no instant chemistry, then hell, it must not be a match" philosophy. Chemistry takes time to build into something. Some of the closest people in my life were people who initially "didn't seem to mesh with me well" or "something wasn't right" --- and guess what? They're the closest people who understand me and vice versa :-)
