UPDATE: Somewhere we are taught that "true love" should be effortless with dreamy naïveté. I couldn't say what an ideal relationship looks like, but I can say for certain, that all of the couples I know who have been together for a significant duration and remained in love, worked for it and continue to work on it.
If you can't read between the lines, then let me be direct and say, I'm not a quitter, and my life partner shouldn't be either; I am in this for the long haul.
Favorite quote for 2013 thus far is : “You have been told that, even like a chain, you are as weak as your weakest link. This is but half the truth. You are also as strong as your strongest link. To measure you by your smallest deed is to reckon the power of ocean by the frailty of its foam. To judge you by your failures is to cast blame upon the seasons for their inconstancy.”
~ Kahlil Gibran, Prophet Hb
Laughter is what the world needs more of...So let me try to do my part.
A joke I heard once goes like this:
A very shy guy goes into a bar and sees a beautiful woman sitting at the bar. After an hour of gathering up his courage he finally goes over to her and asks, tentatively, "Um, would you mind if I chatted with you for a while?"
She responds by yelling, at the top of her lungs, "No, I won't sleep with you tonight!" Everyone in the bar is now staring at them. Naturally, the guy is hopelessly and completely embarrassed and he slinks back to his table.
After a few minutes, the woman walks over to him and apologizes. She smiles at him and says, "I'm sorry if I embarrassed you. You see, I'm a graduate student in psychology and I'm studying how people respond to embarrassing situations."
To which he responds, at the top of his lungs, "What do you mean $200?"
*** So now let me share a bit about myself. I'm not in to playing mind-games or games for that matter. I say what I mean and do as I say. Bar-scene is where the ego's go for stroking ,though I must admit I like dancing. I am a genuine guy, lets keep it real, no need for facades, they say just be who you are and the rest comes easy. So let me start off by saying who i am not, not Donald Trump, nor Brad Bitt, I am not the Dali Lama (though that would be really Really cool!) and I am certainly not Glenn Beck.
I'm on my self-actualizing quest to find the yin to my yang.
hobbies: always learning about everything via reading, documentaries, museums, art, sociology, pop culture, big into music and comedy and also meeting new friends, hence why i am here.
I am a very sociable person one on one, and I fit in nicely in my field which is Marketing and Sales. I am fortunate to say that I work with a great team of MBA's, PHD's and MD's(always learning). My industry is Healthcare.
I like mountain biking, playing wiffle ball with friends, road trips. I like doubling down on 9's vs 4-6 on Blackjack, and concerts/shows are always a blast. I am conscious of staying healthy but have priorities that preclude me from pursuing an 11% body fat for washboard abs.
IF you haven't outgrown your college days then most-likely we would not get along.
Balance is my motto, and enjoy a drink of wheatgrass every morning and yoga at night. I have inherited my fathers' wicked sense of humor and still think that The 3 stooges are the BomB! But Bill Hicks will always be the best comedian IMO.
I am a happy man, jovial, content yet ambitious. I have many goals, and one of them being to one day create a non-profit org(been in my head for 10 yrs now). I've come to realize that the best way for me to be and remain joyful is by helping others.
I also enjoy the finer things in life, but i truly am aware that the best things in life are free.
in a nutshell this should read somewhat like this:
ISO a gal that is cool with going on a hike in the Hollywood hills, but/and not need to be in the "Hollywood scene."
A girl with depth but as the quote goes "Genius is of small use to a woman who does not know how to do her hair", so someone who cleans up nicely for a night on the town :)
I am: informed, inquisitive, and interested in knowing about a wide range of topics. And the best match for me would like a deep connection with their mate... ( I think I may be on the wrong site) prove me wrong dammit !!!
i try to have a non-judgmental outlook and attitude, life is sweeter this way, and it helps in maintaining an optimistic frame of mind.
My ipod is my friend :) and we have a standing date a few times a week @ the gym.
I listen to Pandora like it's going out of style! i have a song for every task i do and currently bouncing my head to Nightmares on Wax. All genre of music are good in my book, mostly contemporary. I don't watch sports, i rather play them.
I watch what i put into my body: food. I like the outdoors, summers, traveling, and talking with friends.
My pops tells me that I shouldn't be asking for my match to be like minded... Some wit, smarts and balanced person seems to be a phenomena in LA.. Or is it POF to blame.
Lets prove my pops wrong!
What the hell am I going to talk about with a pretty wallflower for the next 30-40+ years ?!
No your last name shouldn't be Einstein, but a learned woman is soo attractive to me.
If you've read this far, let me just say that, no I am not always this cerebral, I am a fun guy to be around and funny. This profile thing makes me feel like It's going to be graded, so I put some thought into it... Pass, Fail, ahh wth, we are just auditing this class anyhow.
first date, something simple as long as we both are comfortable (it's all about getting a vibe anyhow so my surroundings are not really critical.)
ps. if i know you via Facebook, and we are friends...lets not make things awkward and don't hit me up for dating... we are obviously in the friends zone. Peace
If you are consciously or subconsciously trying to "date-up", then please wake up and don't view dating as a means to acquire anything more than possibly a sincere and genuine friendship.
