I am easy going, fun loving, hard working, adaptable, well-adjusted, determined, ambitious, understanding, compassionate, creative, independent, honest, conscientious, adventurous, down to earth and intelligent. It s kinda hard to talk about myself like this -- modesty is a virtue. You can see what I look like from my pictures. People say much younger than my age. I like to stay young physically and mentally. I love the outdoors and am very athletic. I swim, bicycle and go to the weight room regularly. I really enjoy the beach, snorkeling, kayaking, hiking, camping, just about any sport. I have an urban planning consulting practice. I have degrees in urban planning and economics from UCLA. I follow politics closely, on the progressive side, interested in many issues ranging from civil rights and social equity to environmental concerns and international issues. I have a very serious side to me, but I play hard and like to keep it light-hearted most of the time. I am very passionate and enjoy giving lots of love to my special woman. I also love to travel. I lived in Japan for a year, and have been to other Asian countries, various parts of Europe a few times, Australia and Latin America. I like to keep it interesting, adventurous and fun. I promise to treat you nice and with lots of respect, even if we don t work out. I’d like to meet a woman who I can have long conversations with. Good education and intelligence are required and turn me on. I like a woman who communicates well. I’d like to have a soul mate who I feel close to. I also want to be with someone who likes the outdoors and is athletic. Someone who takes care of herself and stays physically fit. Good sense of humor, easy going, well-adjusted and emotionally stable are also necessary. Multi-cultural/multi-national awareness and politically progressive mentality are plusses. She must also be physically attractive. Best of all, show me a refreshing personality characteristic I've never seen before! I am turned off by: self-centeredness, materialism, laziness, and moodiness.
