ABOUT HIM & WHO HE'S LOOKING FOR

ME: I didn't get to CA until I was 30, but fell in love with it instantly, and am now a proud Angeleno. I will never send an email saying only "Whasup," "Hey", or "Ur cute." Women who are attractive yet vapid leave me cold; women who are attractive and can use “vapid” in a sentence make my knees weak.

I know you may just want me to listen...but I can’t help trying to solve your problems. Straightforward honesty is my trademark and my downfall. Included in your purchase price are an ironic, acerbic, self-deprecating wit, as well as puns, flip remarks, and surreal non sequiturs. I've spent too much time in relationships thinking and pondering; I'd like to find one where I can think less and just "be" more.

I’m not the guy who throws on an old t-shirt while the woman on his arm is dressed up; in fact, I live for chances to wear my tux. I get most of my info from reading profiles, not looking at the pictures. I have no professional headshots or pictures on a red carpet, and am starting to feel a little left out; I also don't have any shirtless pictures in front of a Camaro, and am profoundly glad. (The pictures I do have, however, are recent, and my age is as listed.)

Been singing most of my life: Chorus, musical theatre, a cappella, and lead singer for a couple of cover bands. Doubt that God exists, but hope I'm wrong. Love deep conversation; hate small talk. I get teary-eyed over sad movies and great literature. Western civilization began circling the drain with "Jersey Shore." I just bought a tiny house in Echo Park, which is a constant source of weekend projects.

I was raised in the South, and can behave in polite company: Moms like me; I help cook dinner and clear the dishes. Dads like me; I call them "sir" until they invite me to do otherwise. Little kids like me; I help build Legos and they whip me at Xbox. Dogs like me; I pet them and slip them leftovers under the table. Cats like me; I don't know why--they're pretty inscrutable.

YOU. I was told that this list is intimidating. Well, it's *not* a list of "must haves." It's not even a "list" at all--just a random set of things I like. Some are important, some are just sprinkles on the cupcake, but if you find yourself nodding along while you read, we'll probably get along like gangbusters:

Smart. Really smart. "Wile E. Coyote, Super Genius" smart is great. (Bonus if you rooted against the Road Runner). You have an edge; a wicked smile on your lips or roguish twinkle in your eye. Can quote lines from Shakespeare, sci-fi movies, 80's teen comedies, or any Monty Python flick.

Would proudly call yourself a “dork,” “goofy,” or “quirky.” Know that there's a difference between "it's" and "its," and that "u," "b4" and "lol" are *not* words. A woman looking for a man, not a girl looking for a boy, or a chick looking for a dude. Smooth out my rough edges and help fill in the missing bits; hopefully I do the same for you. Had your heart broken, but it made you wiser and kinder, not bitter or scared.

Love animals. Want to see the world. You’re independent. Having me in your life hopefully brings you joy and makes loads of things better, but they’re just fine when I’m not there. You don't need me to open doors, pull out your chair, or defend your honor, but you think it's awfully sweet when I try. You’re a Beatrice looking for a Benedick, a Nora looking for a Nick, a Selina looking for a Bruce (Double bonus if you get any/all of those references.)

Know what that teeny fork on the table is for, but you find the whole concept quite silly. Read good books, but not because Oprah tells you to. You've picked a side in the "More comfortable: little black dress or jeans-and-t-shirt?" debate. You’re kind, warm, and sweet; you help remind me that people are basically good, which is tough sometimes for a prosecutor. Want to get past discussing what we do for a living, where we grew up, or the traffic on our way to work, and actually talk about things that matter.

I come from a family of animal lovers, and used to have dogs, whom I miss. Nowadays, the only pet my lifestyle allows me is the fat grey feral cat who comes to my doorstep and yowls at me to be fed every morning and evening.

For fun:

Exploring L.A.--architecture, food, music, art, culture...and the canyons on my motorcycle. Music--singing, playing guitar, listening. Experimental cooking. Exercise--mostly the gym, but I've recently discovered obstacle runs.

Favorite hot spots:

Lake Hollywood far away; Echo Park Lake near my house. Pazzo Gelato. Masa. Campo de Fiori. Siena. Angeles Crest Highway. The Old Quarter of Ha Noi. Southwark. Joshua Tree during a meteor shower. The PCH between LA and Monterey.

Favorite things:

Singing. Talking to strangers in other countries. Putting bad guys in jail. Driving faster than I should. Making dinner from that orphaned tin of cannellini beans. Tour guiding out-of-town guests. Picking decent wines mostly by luck.

Last read:

I'm a voracious reader—usually 1-2 books/month. Latest: 100 Years of Solitude (finally!), Madonnas of Echo Park, Johannes Cabal, Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore. On deck: a "King Lear" parody, and (finally) Brief History of Time.

BACKGROUND/VALUES:
Ethnicity:
White / Caucasian
No preference

I'm half-Polish (dad's parents emigrated), the rest a mix of Austrian, Welsh and Italian. Culturally, I was raised in the South, but my dad is a Polish Yankee, and I live in CA, so you get a Southern gentleman without any Faulknerian baggage!

Faith:
Spiritual but not religious
No preference

I've spent my life trying to figure what happens when we have shuffled off this mortal coil, and haven't yet come up with an answer that satisfies me. I respect (and envy), though, the faith other people have, so long as they don't force it on others

Languages:
English

Education:
Graduate degree
Bachelors degree, Graduate degree, PhD / Post Doctoral

J.D. -- As far as I know, law school is the only professional education that allows you to receive a degree without ever having performed any basic skills of the profession--anyone else think that there's something pretty strange about that?
