In the midst of moving to San Francisco from NYC, and before that, the great Pacific Northwest. So excited to be a Californian. I'm looking forward to meeting new people, exploring San Fran and the Bay Area, and being able to drive to work again after a long jaunt with Manhattan public transportation. I think this whole idea of meeting someone on the internet is extremely awkward... but I guess it comes with the times. Since I am just moving to San Francisco from NYC, meeting people is also just plain necessary.
My friends who know me best would say that though I often play the skeptic, I am actually incredibly optimistic and have a hard time not assuming the best in others. I smile pretty much all the time. Initially I am often sarcastic, while with those I know best I am notoriously sweet. I like to think that I know who I am, and what I want and deserve. Especially as I get older, I think it has become even clearer, and honesty and compassion have really become the foundations of all the meaningful relationships in my life. I am looking to meet like-minded people, and to hopefully meet someone who also knows what he wants in life, values trust and honesty, can make me laugh, challenge me intellectually, and who has clear ambitions both personally and professionally, but is able to see the bigger picture as well and is thus in no rush to make some set of plans 'happen.'
My perfect match would be honest above all else, would always look for the best in others, know how to laugh, and be caring without being clingy, and would have a life plan but not be in a hurry to get there. I want to find someone who is comfortable with himself, is passionate about something, is intelligent, and both interested and interesting. He also better make me laugh... a lot. Did I already say that?
