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 Hayward. 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.
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. I'll spare you the explanation so 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 - ha ha). I love the Smiths.
2. Good communication
3. My self-respect/dignity
5. My dog
6. Living in the moment
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. Good things happen to those who don't rush.
