Hi there. I moved back to Los Angeles 5 years ago after living in San Diego for 12 years. I have a good job, with many family and friends close by. I work a lot, but I also balance my life with other activities, and I try to live an active, diverse lifestyle (yoga, swimming, surfing, gym, hiking). As with other dating websites, I'm going into this with an open mind. I've had good and bad dates on other websites, but my experience is you need to put yourself out there to see if there is a connection.
Basically, I'm here to meet women and hopefully build a meaningful relationship. Let's see what happens.
Turn-offs: People who are controlling; people who do not respect boundaries; people who act like they are starring on "The Hills" or "Entourage".
I don't watch or play sports and I am not crazy about Las Vegas (I would rather go hiking in Big Sur).
Also, if we do go out on dates, please come correct (and I will as well). I'm not interested in having endless textathons with you, especially when I'm doing one of the above physical activities. I do not always answer my mobile phone, nor do I respond to text messages right away. Sometimes I (gasp!) actually TURN IT OFF so I can focus on the real world.
Chemistry is a must. I don't mind if things start off slow as we get to know each other. Ladies, I read your "no hook ups/no booty calls" statements loud and clear. However, if after a few months you are not comfortable with me physically, and you do not want to do more than kiss and hold hands, there is obviously a lack of chemistry and we are not a match.
An activity where we actually talk to each other and see if there is a connection. Coffee, a live band we both like, a bike ride on the Venice boardwalk, day trip to Griffith Park or the Getty Museum.
