The first time I ventured into the world of online dating I started the process about 4 times but cancelled things before submitting, but in a city like LA, it just makes sense. Despite any disappointments I’ve had with dating, I stubbornly believe in serendipity (yes, I’m a straight man and used that word!). I think the internet can be a good way to jumpstart the initial point of contact and then things follow suit from there.
LA's become my home and I truly love all the dynamics offered here in people, culture, cuisine, and artistic energy. I enjoy getting away from LA but always look forward to coming back. With so much always going on this being one of many centers of creativity thought - this is college for grownups!
I'm passionate about what I believe in but open-minded to different points of view. I do think there's a difference between passion and drama. I value people that feel strongly about things yet don't have to wear it on their sleeve. I appreciate a good argument but think that's different than bickering.
In dating and just life in general we all come to and through different places and I'd love to find someone who realizes embraces that. It would be amazing to share in that excitement with someone else.
“We’re all seeking that special person who is right for us. But if you’ve been through enough relationships, you begin to suspect there’s no right person, just different flavors of wrong. Why is this? Because you yourself are wrong in some way, and you seek out partners who are wrong in some complementary way. But it takes a lot of living to grow fully into your own wrongness. And it isn’t until you finally run up against your deepest demons, your unsolvable problems—the ones that make you truly who you are—that we’re ready to find a lifelong mate. Only then do you finally know what you’re looking for. You’re looking for the wrong person. But not just any wrong person: the right wrong person—someone you lovingly gaze upon and think, 'This is the problem I want to have.'” - Galway Kinnell
