I'm pretty regularly asked by friends' wives/girlfriends, married co-workers and creepy cougars "how come you're single???" (Followed by awkward attempts to set me up on blind dates). I guess the answer is that I'd like to be with somebody I'm genuinely happy to be with rather than somebody I've setttled for.
Objectively, I probably should be married with kids by now...false modesty aside, I'm pretty good looking, in good shape, have a good sense of humor (note witticisims throughout profile), am chivalrous and easy to get along with. At this point, I feel like I should be writing a bullet list of generic adjectives saying I'm honest, trustworthy, sweet, funny, etc. but you've probably already seen enough profiles like that. Not to mention I think it's better to demonstrate those qualities than type them.
It seems easier to say who I'm not than who I am. I don't wear skinny jeans or have an ironic mustache. I don't wear pink shirts with the collar popped, or call guys "bra". You probably won't see me taking pictures of myself with my shirt off flexing in the mirror (how am I supposed to hold the camera???). So if you're looking for a hipster or somebody who could be on the Jersey Shore, I'm probably not the guy for you.
I moved to LA from Portland a little over a year ago and am enjoying all the city has to offer. I'm getting into surfing and enjoy hanging out on the beach. I love good food, beer and wine. I own an xbox, but don't worry I only play video games about twice a year. I like watching sports, but don't worry my TV isn't permanently fixed to ESPN. I like to cook, especially BBQ.
I hate bugs and spiders and am more than willing to squish any that come your way. For those of you with minimum height requirements, I know I'm not tall, but I feel tall (in case that counts for anything).
I'd try to describe more about who I'm looking for, but basically I'm just looking for somebody I like and feels the same about me (or that I like but just does a VERY convincing job of pretending that they feel the same about me?). Sorry I can't be more specific, but I like to think we'll know it when we find each other.
