I'm an LA native who recently moved back after a multiple year stint on the east coast (Providence, Boston and NYC). I really enjoyed my time over there but I'm happy to be home.
I first left after high school and went up to the bay area for college -- Berkeley. After that, I worked for several start ups in the Silicon Valley before leaving that world and heading out to sample the east coast.
In general, I could probably write a book on all the activities I enjoy and why I enjoy them. I'll just leave it at, I love nature and being active, I love learning something new every day, and I am probably one of the most loyal people you'll ever meet. Trust means everything to me. I'd love for any woman I meet to exhibit many of those same qualities; someone that is caring, trustworthy, physically fit and open to many new and amazing experiences.
Maybe I should have said what I'm not looking for:
1. Heavy drug use.
2. Extreme alcoholism.
3. Diagnosed mental disorders. (that are not under control)
4. Serious anger issues.
5. Crippling insecurity.
... and I'm sure this list will grow. Bottom line, please just try to have your **** together.
