I am a transplant and I moved to LA about eight years ago for a great career opportunity, and don't regret the move one bit. But I will admit that I sometimes miss having seasons and occasionally, much to my surprise, I actually miss having regular rain.
A little about me: I am intelligent, fun, kind but never a pushover, independent, funny, and an interesting mix of an idealist, but also a realist, at heart. You can see a list of my interests and hobbies above. I love to travel and have been to 15 different foreign countries so far, and looking forward to many more. I just recently returned from 2 weeks in Thailand. I also volunteer regularly with an animal rescue organization.
As for what I'm looking for: You are cute, single, a non-smoker, are in reasonably good shape (as you can probably tell by my interests, I like to stay active), hopefully share some of those interests with me, and don't have fifteen kids. Fourteen is ok, but fifteen is just one too many.
Note: I can't see "I want to meet you" requests so if you click on that without sending me a note I have no way of knowing who you are.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
I like to keep the first date casual. I am a pretty easy-going guy and get along with just about everyone, so spending a little time with someone new shouldn't be an issue.
