Looking for a cool and beautiful lady to hang out with, do fun activities, and fall in love with. I like to ski (it's OK if you snowboard), sail (mostly Lasers but big boats, too), climb (mostly multi-pitch Trad, bonus points if you know what that is), skate (inline not -board), bike (mountain and commute), and hike. I am also a very novice kiteboarder and I would love someone to learn that with! I have skydived once and would like to get solo certified. Then probably do it more. I also want to get back into yoga.
I love animals, especially dogs and ferrets... but I must admit, I am a slight dog racist! I much prefer big dogs (pits, huskies, chows, shiba inus, etc.) and I don't really like small breeds (except for chihuahuas and corgis!).
In general, I like more things than I dislike. I will try any type of new experience. I will focus on the positive aspects of a situation. If you have a general negative attitude and search out things to complain about, we will probably not be a good match.
I am a commitment kind of guy... not looking for meaningless hookups. I am not a cheater and I am disease-free (and looking to stay that way)! I'm from Texas originally but have lived in LA for 13 years.
You must have nice skin (daily sunscreen is a must!) and you must be active and in shape (a few extra pounds is no problem as long as you are working to improve!). Sorry for the shallowness, but I don't want to waste anyone's time.
I work as an IT Systems Administrator and Programmer in the field of Physics... specifically accelerator physics... coming up with novel ways to get electrons to move closer to the speed of light and radiate at the desired frequencies. I am not a socially awkward nerd, though, so don't worry about me being too introverted. I really love my work, and I get to interact with very interesting and intelligent people. Also, my schedule is super flexible, which means I take multiple vacations every year!
I am learning how to cook... only healthy stuff. I went from never cooking to cooking everyday... toaster oven rice cooker pressure cooker = success. If you can teach me to cook what you like, you can expect me to happily make it for you often.
Movies: I love all sorts of films... right now I'm working on watching all of the IMDB 250. Foreign films, classics, sci-fi, documentaries, action.
TV: I watch quite a bit of TV... I like any show about antiques or curiosities (Pawn Stars, Antiques Roadshow, American Pickers, Oddities, etc). I like Game of Thrones and things like that, Shark Tank, Undercover Boss. And yes, I like Bravo shows (Housewives, Shahs, etc). I love science shows and shows like How It's Made. Big fan of dance competition shows, specifically SYTYCD and ABDC. The Daily Show, Colbert Report, Bill Maher... these are all important.
Music: I have pretty eclectic tastes... I am mostly into Hip-Hop and certain electronica. I do dabble in some things like Serge Gainsbourg and more international sounds. I have an insane collection and I guarantee I will get you listening to things you would have never imagined you would enjoy.
Food: I love all kinds of food, but recently when I found out I have pretty high cholesterol (thanks Mom Dad!), I have been eating extremely healthy and cutting out most of my snacking. I love it and will continue to become a better cook. When it comes to going out, I love Japanese, Thai, Tex-Mex, Italian, French... you get the idea. I don't ever eat fast food... if I eat out, I go for quality.
I am very open with the type of people I will date... don't worry about fitting into some mold and just be yourself. Don't be intimidated! I'm not a creeper. I'm a real person... You should be too!
