Let's do a thought experiment:
Suppose you are a pretty girl, and whaddya know, you've been getting messaged left and right and every dude in SD wants to take you on a date! And suppose an email comes in from me. Why should you email me back?... because while there are a lot of cute guys in San Diego, let's be honest, most of them meet the operational definition of "douchebag." They say they love food, but they mean Chipotle. They say they are into working out, but what they mean is they like to go to the climbing gym and we all know that lurching up a 5.9 requires zero athleticism. They say they like dogs, but who doesn't like dogs except people from strange cultures and my grandfather who is 93 years old?
So unlike 99% of the dudes out there, THIS is what I mean when I say I like food: I think there is only ONE other earthly pleasure on par with food ;) I love to make food - fresh bread and homemade hummus, tempeh tacos, walnut cilantro pesto pizza etc. - and I love to feed people. When I eat a spoonful of Nutella my reaction is nothing less than indecent. If we like each other and decide to date, you will be well-fed.
What I mean when I say I like to workout is that I love kettlebell squats even though it looks ridiculous when I'm doing them. I have a pair of workout shorts that are too short (even by 80s standards), but I don't care because I go to the gym to kick butt, not to pickup girls. Crossfit has changed my life. The filthy fifty is the deadliest/best workout I've experienced in recent memory. Don't know what I'm talking about? If we like each other and decide to date, we can compare workouts :)
What I mean when I say I like dogs is that I turn into a ball of mush when I see them. Especially Chihuahuas because I grew up with the sweetest one ever (I totally understand your doubts about those little guys, but if you hit the money with them you are in luck).
What I mean when I say I like being outside is that just stepping outside of my apartment and smelling all the different scents in San Diego makes me happy to be alive. If I ever have a bachelor party, it won't be Vegas but rather a trip to Yosemite with my best buds. I could think of nothing more romantic that enjoying the majesty of a beautiful sunset from the top of a mountain with a girl I am crazy about.
So, if you want a cute, smart, man who loves to feed you, I'm your huckleberry :)
