Wild Fact About Me 3 things you need to know before we get started:
1. I believe that men are men and women are women, that's the way it should be and that's the way I like it.
2. I believe a woman should be kissed correctly and kissed often.
3. I have the longest....PROFILE in the known interweb. (Do not read while driving or operating heavy machinery)
(Just added: 4. Might be moving away in June. Back to SoCal or NY tristate area)
If you agree with these points, read at your peril:

I'm open and honest, positive, fun, sarcastic w/a hint of quirkiness. I care about other people. I try to make the best out of every situation. I have high ideals in my life & I stand behind them, even if that means going against the grain. I am committed to a daily practice of increasing my health, vitality, self-awareness & my growth as a professional as well as a man & intimate partner. Of course, I'm not all rainbows and lollipops but at least I keep you on your toes.
So do we all have doubts that the girl/guy of our dreams is trolling through online profiles? Yes. But why not? I mean why else are we on okcupid? (or if I may be profound, why else are we on this wonderfully unpredictable spinning blue orb called Earth, other than to explore, learn & take chances??)
My Philosophy How I can better my life, my career and cultivate enough dissatisfaction to reach my goals. My goals include: maybe go back to school. Make a difference. Become self-actualized and fulfilled. Love and marry the (right) one. (And trying to iron as little as possible. I don't enjoy ironing anything.)
Learning. Learning more about myself, my limits and my strengths, and what I have to offer the world and vice versa.
Pondering the deep questions, "Why are Heidi and Spencer famous?", "Why do the Jonas Bros and others like Justin Bieber have to make "music"? "Is the snuggie really that comfortable?" "How can I get away with ironing as little as possible?" "Why are you reading my profile?"
What Gives Me Hope Have you seen "Into the Wild" (2007)? Well, I'm reminded of something the late Christopher McCandless wrote in his journal which was "Happiness real, when shared." I've seen some beautiful, awe-inspiring things in my life and sometimes it's nice to be alone and other times I wish I was sharing the experience with someone who means the world to me. So I don't know what exactly you're looking for but someone to share some happiness with is probably on your list. So, Hi - nice to see you. Glad you could make it.

Useless Fact that tells you nothing about me:
my new favorite snack of 2010 (drumroll please) are Peanut-butter Covered Pretzels. Boy, why can't I find me a wife made from peanut butter-covered pretzels? I could dip her in the chocolate fondue fountain at our wedding. Also, love pralinutta! And Peanut Butter & Co. dark chocolate. Yum.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by can't live without: My dog (sadly, she passed), sunshine, laughter, creme brulee, the ocean and cheese. Tao. Crepes. Gelato. Mind-blowing sex - or is that too obvious? Also, really enjoy: dog beach, general fitness, filtered H2O, ocean, The Daily Show, Museums, Nature, Art, adventure, an enlightening & empowering book, Dive bars, yelping, golf, 9-ball,
My family.
And spend time thinking about:
Women.
My dog.
Women.
Food.
The environment, i.e. Global warming, green tech, hydrogen cars, algae-oil,
Eastern philosophies, spirituality, psychology,
Politics and hot-topic issues i.e. healthcare reform, The weekend.
The Pyramids.
Ancient Sumerians, Aliens
and the mysteries of...
women.
Very much enjoy living with:
Spanish tapas, Italian - lasagna, ravioli, anything with gravy and mozzarrella, good new york style/napolitan pizza, Grandma's eggplant parmigiana, Mom's meatloaf, grass-fed beef, spinach, sushi-sometimes, creme brulee, brie, I like French food too and fondue. Any wedding that has one of those chocolate fondue fountains and I'm in heaven. Organic food.
What/who changed my life and why Tao and the Art of Abundance, "A General Theory of Love". Amazing book written by two psychologists. It's not self-help, not really, but it is eye-opening and very interesting. Compassion & Self-Hate by Rubin (so empowering) "The Kite Runner". almost anything by David Sedaris, Chuck Klosterman, Chuck Palahnuik. I haven't read any Franzen yet. Also, dabbling in Humanism.
Don't forget: Sir Ken Robinson, Malcolm Gladwell (Blink), "Freakonomics", "The Omnivores Dilemma" (a must read), then I'd recommend "In Defense of Food" and other Michael Pollan books, Bill Simmons' articles are awesome (ESPN.com - Page 2). Fountainhead, The Holographic Reality, I know this much is True, DaVinci Code & Angels & Demons, 85% of anything John Irving has ever written - esp. Prayer for Owen Meany. Confederacy of Dunces, Ishmael by Daniel Quinn, Celestine Prophecy, P.J. O'Rourke satire, most of the Anne Rice novels, and if we go way back - The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. I actually admit to reading the first 5 of the Harry Potter books back in 2002 - hey, my roommate had them just sitting there! Numerous sci-fi stuff...Asimov. Vonnegut. The Watchmen - graphic novel. History. The list goes on...
