Thanks for reading my profile. Before I describe myself, let me give you my thoughts about online dating. I’m here because I’m not tired of meeting people at bars. In fact, I still find it fun especially with friends. However, I no longer approach women in clubs; what's the point when every one is a psycho who sticks pins and needles in voodoo dolls of all their exes, right? No really… I only frequent clubs on rare occasions. While I’d rather use the traditional way to meet you while using chivalry to win you over, I’m choosing this method as well -- so here I am. See, I didn’t have to put on an act to get you to read this far. It’s a clear alternative to using the bathroom-window-escape-artist act if our first date sucks. So, if you are nodding your head and smiling, read on… I work hard, I make time to play, and I usually find the lighter side to life’s situation so I laugh often. I’m down-to-earth, educated, and would like to travel more often than I have time for. I’m intelligent, inquisitive, and articulate though I’ve been known to make-up my own words. I’m straight forward, dependable, independent with certain things and won’t tolerate boredom. I’m matter-of-fact, charming when I’ve had plenty of sleep, confident but don’t confuse it with arrogance, and have a heart of gold. I grew up in Southern California but for the last few years, San Francisco is my home. I maintain a balance between my professional life and my personal life. I am a gentleman who believes in family and in romance. I value integrity, communication, motivation and an upbeat, positive outlook. I tend to be attracted to those who are fun, energetic, lighthearted, stable, intelligent, caring, secure and trust worthy. I take care of myself and look for that in others. I'm ready for something more serious and looking for an equal, a friend, and a better half. I will respond to every email to tell you whether we are a match or not so show me you are interested.
