50, San Anselmo, CA
This fill in the blanks, check the boxes seems so limiting and impersonal. I would much prefer to meet in person over coffee or a drink and see if we have any chemistry.
I believe in chemistry. Physical chemistry and emotional chemistry. When true chemistry is there, everything else will just fall into place.
I believe in having some shared interests and activities. BUT I also believe it's ok to have interests and activities that our partner may not be into or have never been exposed to. I think this is healthy for one's individuality, and can lead to exploring new things with your partner. It also reduces the needy factor. I'm just not into needy, clingy people.
Some things about me:
- I'm a native San Franciscan. Born in the old Children's Hospital in SF. Grew up in the Excelsior. I love The City, just wish I could afford living there.
- Maybe it's because I'm a native, but I love the fog and REAL sourdough bread.
- I also know where the REAL crookedest street in the world is, and it's not near Lombard :)
- Moved to Marin in 1990. I really like it here. Near some of the best outdoor areas to explore. Mt Tam, Point Reyes, Marin headlands are all out my back door.
- I completed my first Century 100mile bike ride around Tahoe in June '13. It was an amazing experience!! I'm not a gym rat/ fitness buff, but I try to be fit and healthy. Currently training to complete it again this June.
- Recently went on a 3 week solo trip to London, Paris, Normandy and Berlin. It was an amazing trip.
- I'm planning to walk The Way, Camino de Santiago in 2016.
- It's a little complicated to explain here. I'm self employed in TV production. I work all over the Bay Area and sometimes travel for work. I love what I do.
- I have a job, I have a car, I have a place to live. I'm not looking for someone to take care of me...except when I have a cold :)
- To help diffuse the awkward moment when the subject comes up. I'm a widower. My wife died of cancer 12/11. I'm ok talking about it. I've just noticed, when someone is not aware, it becomes a mini awkward moment.
