I am attracted to people who have had to work to find their path - not people who seem to have always known the way and certainly not those who are spinning in unsuccessful circles.
I'm a dog lover - that's important. I volunteered at an animal shelter for several years and now have an insanely lovable French Bulldog.
I'm an ENFJ, though I'm really on the line between Introvert and Extrovert. I love my friends and meeting new people, and I really value those connections, but I definitely need time alone to recharge.
I'd like to meet a woman who is happy, healthy, sexy, sane and smart. One who is ready for the real thing. We've all got a list; that's mine - right up front.
I probably don't want kids to have kids. It's not impossible that this will change, but if you're specifically looking for someone to have a kid with, I'm not your best bet. I am, however totally fine dating a woman who does have kids. I've actually grown to love kids over the last couple years by getting to know a friends daughter. They're amazing little learners - so honest and direct.
I'm smarter than a Roomba (much smarter, for what it's worth) and funnier than most thumb tacks. I have my shit together. I don't use asterisks to censor curse w*rds. I'm an adult and so are you.
Lastly, I could only date a conservative if we were making a sit-com and let's hope we're not.
Update 2/21/14 - I have a beard now. New pics coming. In the meantime, use a sharpie and draw one over my current pic on your monitor. I still look very young for my age. Was recently confused for being in my 20's. That person might have been a bit myopic. Most people peg me for middle 30's.
