ABOUT HIM & WHO HE'S LOOKING FOR

The full quote is-
“My dear, Find what you love and let it kill you.
Let it drain you of your all. Let it cling onto your back and weigh you down into eventual nothingness.
Let it kill you and let it devour your remains.
For all things will kill you, both slowly and fastly, but it’s much better to be killed by a lover."

First of all, I'm not looking for anyone to 'complete me'. I like to think of myself as fairly complete already. I have a great life, raised by loving parents who are still madly in love and I'm surrounded by amazing friends. Having said that, I feel like I shouldn't keep all of this wonderfulness to myself:) That would be selfish, right?

If you're still in your bad boy phase, you should move on at this point. I don't have a lot of tattoos. I don't drive a Harley. And I don't treat people with disrespect.
I call when I say I'm gonna call. I open the door for whomever I'm with. And I believe in treating those that you care about with respect and dignity. I've been living with a life long affliction of Nice Guy Disease. I'm learning to live with it.

A little about me--Spent the first half of my life living in Europe where I developed that Mediterranean love for sun, fun, family, and good food. Went to school in Southern California and then decided I wanted to travel the world and did just that. Spent a few years cooking in London(contrary to popular belief, there is good food to be had in London) and from there, I hit the Rocky Mtns for a few years and slaved through some cold winters. BRRRRR!! I moved back to SoCal about 9 years ago and don't have plans to move any time soon.

Looking for, in no particular order-
Someone who will ask me what the intentional grounding rule in football is, even if they don't care (hint: we like to teach you guys about stuff that you don't really care about; it's payback for dragging us antique shopping on the weekends)
Someone who is willing to explore their carnivorous side occasionally. If you don't eat meat, that really shrinks my repertoire of dishes that I can cook for you.
Someone with ambition; who wants to accomplish something in their life.
Someone who is comfortable in an LBD at the theater or in sweats, curled up on the couch with a glass of wine and a good movie.
Someone who is up to date on current events, the most recent headline story on 60 minutes, or why Beethoven/Steve Jobs/Da Vinci were geniuses.
Too much to ask? I certainly hope not

ps. In case it matters, I'm not bald. I decided to cut most of my hair off before last summer and I love it this way. If you're looking for a guy who's hair you can run your fingers through, it's not me. I suppose it could be me but we're about 12 months away from that being possible:)

Interests:

Pet Essay:

Just one cat that I inherited from a previous relationship. Low maintenance companionship and furriness all rolled into one. Would love to get a big dog some day, as soon as I have a yard he/she can run around and play in all day.

Political views:
Some other viewpoint
Sign:
Sagittarius
College:

For fun:

Tough to pin this one down. Sometimes it's a nice dinner at a restaurant and the Opera/LAPhil. Other times, it's great to just sit in and catch up with my DVR/AppleTV. If I'm sipping wine anywhere near the ocean with great company, I'm a happy man.

Favorite hot spots:

Not big on the club scene anymore. Most of my time is spent getting together with friends to enjoy food/wine. Travel-been all over Europe and would do it all again but would also love to hit Australia, South America, and Southeast Asia

Favorite things:

Food-too many to mention. Chilled Champagne and deep red wines. TV-Mad Men, Breaking Bad, British version of The Office, True Detective, Charlie Rose. Music-Killers, U2, Muse, Adele, Radiohead, The Verve, Keane. My feet in cool sand and Bacon:)

Last read:

Art Culinaire Magazine. In chef world, it's mac & cheese for the eyes. Currently, my Kindle has Tipping Point at the top of the list. Great read for anyone interested in how to bring about change, both in individuals and in the world.
