ABOUT HIM & WHO HE'S LOOKING FOR

My photos do a great job expressing my personality, work hard but a child at heart and a Bay Area native. I know my profile is wordy but it's really an honest attempt to communicate my personality, temperament, judgement and growth so you have a good idea of who I am if interested. Despite how it may be interpreted, I am more of a listener than talker.
I was born in SF, grew up in a college town and my favorite family memories were going to Tahoe to go snowboarding with my parents, two sisters and cool but spoiled dog. I like supporting up-and-coming bands, I used to work in remote Alaska wilderness and I may not look like an REI type but yes, I love camping and being in the nature. I love identifying plants and mushrooms on hikes in my head and combined with my sense of humor that ranks me what? 9 our of 10 in the nerd category?

As far as my personality goes, My friends would all agree that I am patient, I like to listening to different perspectives, don't rush to judgement (I am a libra if that's your thing), I'm very adapting to various personalities and cultures. I've competed at one point at giant slalom but my coach kicked me off the team for snowboarding and skateboarding during training. I've made a bunch of arrogant mistakes growing up trying the shake off the child-like decisions I made. What really rescued me was moving to Germany and immersing myself in such a structured and no non-sense culture for quite awhile. And after all all of that, I became Risk Management Consultant which has some irony to it...maybe it makes total sense. Day-to-day stuff im spontaneous so Its best if I'm with "a planner" to offset this trait. I definitely enjoy down time and listening to records or working out or zone-out or reading, talking or cooking meals I learned to cook abroad. I am a happy guy, no complaints really, I live alone and own a totally hipster condo place but not a hipster. I'm too old for that, those guys came later, kinda obscure and ambiguous term at this point I guess. I don't play video games, don't smoke anything, don't spend time lots of time on the computer and barely enthusiastic about the latest new cool apps but later, in private, I am impressed. So here is an argument why I feel I am a good catch: I don't particularly like to dance but took ballroom and salsa classes once....not my own choice though but that is evidence that I am #1 Honest and #2 know how to be a gentleman #3 if she is happy, so am I. Most men can't grasp those three little things because it's taught. Men are kinda dumb, they need bullet points for relationships.

One unusual thing about me is I grew up a great deal working abroad for the remainder of my 20's after college traveling nearly continuously for five years, working out of Sweden. I was totally grooming myself for living abroad but got homesick. Weird thing is you keep running into the same people all over the world, airport bars, dingy hotels, even the bastards trying to scam me remembered me, "oh it's you, never mind, next...." Continous jet-lagged insomnia you resort to basic impulsive primitive skills and instincts for survival, you have likely been there....It toughened me up. I learned how to be self-reliant, seen lots of the world, worked in groups to solve problems with all sorts of communication obstacles, also saw things nobody should see as well as things everyone should see. I truely became an adult after that job.

If I meet that special person I am interested in someone who has experience with long term relationships as it's a team sport and takes practice . I look at it like basketball, never played? Gotta sit on the bench but I will say some personalities are more conducive towards relationships; being patient, caring, empathetic, fun, passionate, family-orientated, goals, nature and healthy...
