About Brian
I'm complex—not complicated or convoluted, yet I'm simple and life is simple, to me. It just makes sense:

Laugh, always.
Love with every fiber of your being.
Learn through the "eyes" of an innocent, intuitive child.
Live every experience with the mad & intense passion, as though it's the only chance you get...
and from that, ultimately, Grow.

*How can this not make me sound like a jerk, however:* If you actually read my profile, you'd know that I am not into dating someone who is overweight. So if you are, just don't send me a meet request or a note. I take very good care of myself. I am in great physical shape, I would like my partner to at least care about her health & body, I would like us to "fit" together. I know that sounds mean, but it's my preference.

Yes, it's really THAT simple. Most people choose to make it difficult, while some of us don't. We find that it's easy, even and especially when times are rough.

Well, what I'm here for is a woman who not only understand that, but also LIVES it. She's REAL and FUN. She should just "get" life, and it'll be simple to "get" one-another. I'm looking for no bullsh*t. No games. I don't allow fake into my life even insofar as friends or acquaintances go, so why would I in a relationship capacity?

I'm a happy person and that isn't going to change, not for anyone. I LOVE laughing. I LOVE screwing around and enjoying life. I LOVE finding the beauty all around me. I don't let morons or issue-laden people drag me down. Nope, not this guy.

I'm healthy and fit: body, mind and spirit. I keep in good shape and I eat well, and I do this while freely enjoying all of my guilty pleasures, it's not tough, very simple actually. So you won't find a fatty here, there's no belly that hangs over my belt line, nothing like that.

I have no past relationship issues. All of my relationships were great while they lasted, and they ended for specific reasons, and I have stayed amicable with most ex's, whether or not we communicate anymore, those relationships ended peacefully even though there was some hurt in there. So I won't be blaming you for anything an ex did, or running away, EVER.

I'm open and honest, I don't hide my thoughts or emotions, ever. When I'm interested in a woman, I say it and I meant it, and I show it.

I'm passionate. I care about the Planet, people and animals. I treat others with respect, regardless of what they do for a living or even if they're homeless. Every human has a story, and oftentimes, it's the most downtrodden people who have the most color to their past, the most interesting stories.

I'm strong, I can, and oftentimes do, carry a World of weight on my shoulders, because I am capable of it, and I do it with ease and without blowing up. At the same time, I have a very sensitive and vulnerable side, my closest friends know the pathway in, and only a REAL woman will be able to tap into it.

I am who I am and yet I'm ever-changing and evolving. Every experience I have helps me grow, whether it's good or bad. In-fact, I take the bad things and turn them into positive growth points. It's simple, it just requires letting go of the societal BS and tapping into our own inner-strength.

I'm noble and I'll show you a World of respect, but I won't put up with blatant BS and lies. Just be honest, always. It's THAT simple. You can't hold others responsible for that which you choose not to tell them, just as they can't with you. So again, just be up-front and honest. I do what I say and say what I mean, ALWAYS.

Bottom-line, I believe that one must truly love, honor and respect oneself before one can ever love, honor & respect another and most importantly, before one can ever allow oneself to be loved honored and respected.

While quotes do not encapsulate the essence of who I am, the following is GREAT descriptor of me and how I do & always have lived my life:

"I am nobody. I don't belong to any nation, I don't belong to any religion, I don't belong to any political party. I am simply an individual, the way existence created me. I have kept myself absolutely uninfluenced by any idiotic ideology - religious, political, social, financial. And the miracle is that because I am not burdened with all these glasses on my eyes, and curtains before me, I can see clearly." —OSHO

A REAL QUICK ASIDE: What's with all the people on here who want pen-pals? This isn't Facebook, it's a friggin dating site. If you don't want to talk to/meet the person you're communicating with, GET THE F--K OFF HERE and go to Myspace with the little kids and dunderheads! HAHA! Really!

And here are some What The F--K's:
1: You're above the age of 12 and you still, seriously, refer to yourself as a diva, princess, mermaid, et al...
2: If you're duck faced in your photos.
3: You show your goods to everyone on POF but despise "his" shirtless or sunglasses photo (I don't have any of these, just making an observation).
4: If you demand qualities from him which you can't, yourself, deliver.
Please trust me on this, the guys who let you slide on these, only want to get you in bed for X amount of time then move onto their next "score".

First Date
What I would find beautiful, in "us"...
That CLICK! You know that energy two people share, when others are just drawn to the energy & bond between the two of us? Yes, THAT! The desire to explore one-another in every facet, daily. Communication in boundless capacities. The trust that we can put our very last breath in one-another's hands and we'd both be completely safe, always. Crazy, fun humor, silliness & playfulness with one-another that'll last 'til we're that old couple which we currently swoon over. Two strong & self-aware people letting go of the BS society dictates and just being together, loving one-another & sharing with each other. It should be simple, however, it's not easy finding someone that self-connected.

Let's just go have a good time & LAUGH, laugh until our tummies hurt. Let go of the predisposed nonsense. Or let's do something active... and laugh. Let's go hiking, drink sangria, jog on the beach, beach volleyball, an art show, a concert... anything fun!

Humorous Reality Check Here I say the aforementioned because (as my friends and I found out and laugh about), well, there are a LOT of women on here who shouldn't be claiming that they're ready to date one great guy. Why would you come on here if you wanted to hide, to communicate a little bit then cower back in a corner claiming that you've been burned by other guys? Why would you put that onto another guy? It's just weird, it's NOT what a real woman does and in effect, it's actually playing games with guys, it's hypocrisy.
