My self-summary
I’m a grounded, open, honest (sometimes to a fault) loving, caring, romantic, affectionate, supportive straight forward guy looking for a woman with similar qualities. I am the father of a wonderful 15 year old daughter who lives with me full-time. I am at a point in my life where it is very clear to me what I want in a relationship and what I bring to a relationship (both positive and negative). I am looking for relationship where both of us are:

-Good to each other
-Genuinely happy (I am and I need to be with somebody who is as well)
-Able to support each other physically and emotionally
-Good role models to my daughter (and any children you have)
-Affectionate and comfortable with affection
-Active and challenge each other to be more active
-Romantic and appreciative of romance
-Attracted to each other (this may grow over time – see note below about love at first sight)
-Accepting of the other and not looking to change them
-Completely open and honest with each other (and actually follow through with this we don't just say it)
-On a path to becoming best friends (but not at the expense of other friendships)
-Financially responsible and share similar financial goals
-Challenging each other to be better people
-Able to enjoy a night out or a quiet night at home
-Emotionally healthy and available
-Excited to spend time together
-Able to trust each other completely as it is the core foundation of any relationship
-Looking for new and exciting places to travel whether it be an international vacation or quick weekend getaway
-On the same page realizing that there’s no such thing as the perfect relationship but are willing to try as hard as possible to strive for one.

While a true romantic (I love preparing candlelight dinners, little surprise gifts to show my affection, and opening a door or pulling a chair out for you), I don’t believe in love at first sight. First sight is strictly visual so that would be lust or attraction at first sight. Love is something that grows over time. There certainly needs to be a certain spark and chemistry and personality plays a very big role.

I believe there is no such thing as a "perfect relationship" but want to be with somebody who is willing to try as hard as possible to strive for one. I've also come to realize that I'm more of a relationship guy than a dating guy. While an active and healthy sex life is critical to any relationship, I've never had a one night stand and I am not looking for my first.

I see a lot of people say they are drama free or bring no baggage. I've come to realize that everyone (including myself) brings baggage to a relationship. It's just a matter of whether it's a carry-on or over sized piece of luggage and whether you and your partner are willing and able to carry the others' luggage along with you.

I tend to be organized and plan ahead. But, I can also be fun and spontaneous like climbing a tree for no reason, or packing an overnight bag for you and picking you up at your office for a surprise unplanned weekend getaway.

I'm a kid at heart. There is a fun, silly, playful, flirtatious side of me that comes out over time when I am with the right person. I tend to move fairly slowly physically (if the non-verbal signs aren't abundantly clear) not out of a lack of interest or attraction but because I don't ever want a woman to feel I am pushing myself on her...I'm sure that's directly tied to the peer counseling I did in college, primarily with women who had been raped. I need to know the woman I am with is comfortable, interested, and attracted. You don't have to make the first move. But, you may have to be patient

If you have any interest send me an email.
What I’m doing with my life
First and foremost I am a single father. I'm striving for continued happiness which includes a good work/life balance, raising my daughter to be the best person possible, and trying to make a positive impact in the community.

I am the CEO of a nonprofit that represents and supports 15 community radio stations throughout Minnesota. I enjoy biking, downhill, cross country skiing, going to the movies, traveling, and volunteering. Recent favorite trips include Hawaii, Alaska, a cruise to Panama, Costa Rica, Kenya to help build a school, and Israel Kiev for a charitable mission.
I’m really good at
Being a good father
Being a good listener
Being a good friend
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
TV: Good Wife, Blue Bloods, Scandal, Modern Family, Law & Order, The Mentalist, Grey's Anatomy, and Shark Tank

Movies: Too many to mention. I prefer comedies, romantic comedies (and yes even "chick flicks"), drama, action, I'm just not a big fan of horror movies or most foreign films

Books: Often to improve my career or self-help books like "The Power of Validation"

Music: Just about anything except country

On a typical Friday night I am
If our schedule permits, on Friday nights I typically have Shabbat dinner with my daughter. While we are not overly religious, we do enjoy the tradition of having a family dinner together on Friday nights. In fact, even during our busy weeks we do our best to set aside time every night to sit down at the table for a home cooked meal. That is something I feel as a society we are losing as a result of the fast paced world in which we live. And I know my daughter appreciates and looks forward to sitting down for a home cooked meal whenever possible. I enjoy going to movies, comedy clubs, or just hanging out at home watching TV or a movie.
