ABOUT HIM & WHO HE'S LOOKING FOR

I am a Southern Boy new to the Big City. I have lived in California before, but I am new to Southern California. I'm looking forward to my new life here, but being from the sticks as I am, I'll need a little help navigating my way through the City of Angels... Ok, I'm being a little too cute by half.

Yes, I am from the South, but before moving out here, I lived in Northern Virginia--as in, I lived in the 'burbs of Washington DC (not exactly Mississippi, folks). There I was a defense contractor with a cyber security company. The work was great, but as with any restless spirit, I was ready to find my way back home, to California. And now I'm back, and looking forward to my new career.

It would be next to impossible to capture everything about me here, but I will say this. I am most interested in meeting people who are positive, passionate about life, and open to trying new things. I love exploring quirky restaurants, hiking, skydiving, or just going to the art museum. Life is so short and yet so incredibly amazing, it would be crazy not to enjoy it. That doesn't mean you do the crazy stuff--though the crazy stuff is fine from time to time--what it means to me is that you never let the grass grow beneath your feet.

Let me put it this way. A friend of mine recently told me a story about a woman who once told him that she did not believe in God but she did believe in irony and whim. It was a relatively simple story, and yet it has never left me despite hearing it several times.

I believe in living my life expecting the opposite of what I actually expect. If it should go the way as I expected, great--if not, that is also great, because I expect to be a better person regardless of the outcome. The whim in that is I am not *afraid* to try something different. Most people are afraid to try, but I am not. I decided to move out here six--yes, six--months ago! I just needed to be in a different place in my life, so I chose to be here rather than anywhere else. That doesn't mean I'm reckless, mind you, but willing to roll the hard six. So far, so good.

And so, now I am on Match.com. I have decided to roll the hard six and find the partner who is energetic, artistic, eccentric, and smart. I can have a great conversation on a great book AND get in some sweat equity through hiking, cycling and dancing. Have a sense of humor--because I love to laugh, but inspire my imagination with a thought, etc. Nothing necessarily, but whatever you think might be of interest to me. But you cannot be normal--oh, no!--you must be... different, eccentric. If you are normal and boring, please do not bother. It won't work, it really won't. I've tried dating the normal, check-boxing, dot every i and cross every t type, and I must say that was by far the most unsatisfying time in my life. I need someone who really seeks a little color in her life (and I don't mean race).

Maybe I am asking too much from an online dating service. Well, whatever. It's worth a shot.

For fun:

I like doing lots of things for fun, but cycling is a great stress reliever for me. For a relief of my mind, I find drawing buildings for fun. It's a career escape to be sure, but whoever said you can't do your job AND have fun at the same time?!?

Favorite hot spots:

Since discovering the Natural History Museum and LACMA, I've been addicted.

Favorite things:

Really old books; Woody Allen films; art and science museums, any and all animation, basketball, stimulating conversation with interesting people, and a good meal with said interesting people.

Last read:

Just finished Dante's Inferno and a biography of Walt Disney. Yeah, I know. I love to read
