I arm wrestle. I have lost twice since I was twelve. The first time was to a fourteen year old girl. I was 12. I learned a big lesson. Never underestimate your opponent. Recently I lost to a 21 college kid that is a family friend. Again, years later, I was cocky and playing around and the next thing I knew I was pinned. Lesson learned. I taught him everything I knew and suddenly the student became the master.

I am a guy. Not a straight acting guy. I am what I am. Fairly masculine, sorta Midwestern (from what I hear...born and raised in California and have never lived anywhere else). From Northern California but came to San Diego in 1992 and fell in love with this city, region, mindset, ect. Except for a brief period back home I have always lived here. My likes are as varied as my friends. I love a good party at a friend's house or backyard bbq, days at the beach, taking out the bicycle for a random cruise through the neighborhood. I like weird movies more than blockbusters. I love diners more than the latest hot restaurant. I think the most beautiful car ever built was a 1963 Corvette. I have had an SUV before they were popular but now drive a Mini Cooper S that I bought on a whim. It is like childhood driving a go-kart all over again. I literally laugh every time I drive it. I ride a 1998 Harley Davidson Electra-Glide all over the country. One, because I like old American stuff and that is Harley. Two, because riding a motorcycle is as close to flying an old bi-wing plane as I will ever get to do. When you ride, you smell the surroundings. I like random road trips, been across the country many times in cars, motorcycles and a few dump trucks. Another story.
I worked in hotels for years as a Global Account Manager, booking conferences. I jumped to the client side and worked for Fortune 500 companies booking hotels for conferences at hotel properties.
Now, having retired, I work as a Certified Personal Trainer. I have been a fitness buff long before it became fashionable. I have a library of books on fitness going back 120 years. I work for a big box gym chain that has a small old school attitude at our location. I love everyday that I walk into work because someone is going to have their life changed, and not in a Bruce Jenner way. Fat guy, skinny guy, average guy. Fitness is fun.
I answer posts from time to time and I give advice. Most is from what I have learned from others and extensive reading and my personal experience. And my stats mean nothing to anyone but me but if you want my lifting stats to maybe validate what I say:
At a bodyweight of 190lbs:
405 for 2 reps
315 for 15 reps
225 for 35 reps
135 for 50 reps
500 for one rep
475 for 3 reps
405 for 9 reps
315 for 15 reps
525 for one rep
475 for 4 reps
405 for 8 reps
315 for 22 reps
Best curl strictly, 200lbs.
Best single arm lift: 120lb. dumbbell.
That being said I did that all in my late 30's early 40's. I am 52 now and do not lift heavy anymore. It takes a toll on joints and I just kinda hit my goals and moved on to multi-planar movements. But I was not a gifted athlete. I was an average kid in the gym. I looked at all the bigger guys and said, "Damn". But week in and week out I caught up and passed the biggest guys in my gym. Lift smart. Have a goal. Try everything and keep what works and throw out what does not. Be open minded but not naïve. Use it if it works or move on if it does not.
Guys I'm Looking To Meet
I don't date often. I rarely date to be honest. My life is full, I have friends to keep me busy, I am close to my family, and I have a God-Daughter that I have helped raise that takes up most of my time. What am I looking for? Not sure that I am looking but let's assume for argument that I was:
Fit: Not a ripped swimmer or big muscular body builder. Muscles to a point are attractive but huge muscles do nothing for me. Totally ripped guys I enjoy looking at but not sure I could date.
Average guys: Maybe a farm kid build from Ralston, Nebraska. I don't like obsessive guys that clock every meal they have. That is too desperate for me. Too anal and too self involved. I like guys that like old movies. Random road trips to God knows where? That is how I spend my time off. If you ride any kind of motorcycle, plus points.
I love football (American), soccer and hockey bore me ( or I just am too slow to appreciate them properly). I love UFC, but that is my background in wresting, Muay Thai and boxing. Basketball bores me. Too many points scored. Soccer will never be huge in America. We are go getters. But I respect any athlete from any sport that does it well.
