I am not currently an active member on match, so I cannot receive emails here, but I'm not that hard to find.
If you like what you read here and are not that hard to find feel free to send a wink.
After all, isn’t this really about you and who/what you are looking for?
You appreciate the fine things that money can buy, but realize that it’s the things that money can’t buy that make life worth living.
You realize that your job won’t be there to take care of you when you are sick, but your family and friends will be there for you if you lose your job.
You know you are highly competent and can do anything you set your mind to, but still like to have your car door opened for you.
You “clean up well” but prefer casual and comfortable most of the time.
You, like Emerson, would have listened to Thoreau say, “Simplify, simplify, simplify,” and responded, “Henry, one simplify would have been enough.”
You know that flowers can help smooth over your partner’s thoughtless moment, but you really prefer to get them “just because.”
You are bright and creative and, consequently, are drawn to bright and creative people (and maybe even drawn by them).
You know the airport is not the only LGB in Long Beach and you celebrate the richness of diversity.
You know that people may find you attractive because of your looks, but that the ones who get to know you find you more attractive because of who you are.
You are well educated enough to appreciate street smarts and street smart enough to appreciate a good education.
You are not sure what a difference one person can make in the world, but you are willing to find out.
You, like Gandhi, believe Western civilization “would be a good idea.”
You believe that Bush II was the worst administration in the history of our country, but you also know that the previous one (i.e., Clinton) wasn’t that much better.
You enjoy traveling and discovering new places and you know there really is no place like home.
You prefer eating where there is really good food and/or good company to somewhere just because it got four or five stars or an A rating from the health department.
You enjoy staying in a four or five star hotel, but know that there is no hotel room in the world that can match the grandeur of a high Sierra campsite.
You appreciate a wide variety of music, but prefer live acoustic music in an intimate environment (or maybe a mountain meadow).
You are at home at the Huntington or on campus at Caltech but it’s not hard to talk you into a day at Disneyland.
You welcome the excitement of a new relationship but know it cannot begin to match the fulfillment of a long-term relationship.
You know that a real, long-lasting relationship is not a 50/50 proposition - it requires 100% from each side - and you are willing to give 100% to make yours work.
You think that cold/rainy weather is a great excuse to cuddle up with your man, and you’re glad that neither of you need an excuse.
You enjoy getting a good massage and might even enjoy reciprocating.
You take good care of your body, but believe in moderation and the occasional treat.
You know that the only approved cure for too much fun is three much fun.
You realize that although I’ve written this about you it also tells you a lot about me.
P.S. A little more about me:
"All this and he cooks, too!"
I've been back in Long Beach since April 2010 and absolutely love it here.
