I played multiple sports growing up so playing and watching them now is still big (go Red Sox!!!) and they tend to dominate conversations with my family still; plus my son loves to play just about everything, which is definitely helping to keep me in shape. I've never dated a woman who genuinely loved to play golf or tennis or watch sports on television or really even loved going to games for the sake of watching the game. So truly, that would be pretty amazing especially given how much they're a part of things for me and Nick, my son. It's not a prereq at all, but it would be pretty phenomenal.
I love good movies, good food, literature, and singing both pop songs and showtunes alike with my son, so if you can sing like Maria Von Trapp (or just know Do-Re-Mi), you're already in like Flynn.
I also like staying current with events, and being semi-witty and goofy. It would be great to find the perfect complement. Ultimately, if you're funny and affectionate and active, then we'll get along great.
A lot of questions seem to ask about ambition on these sites. I will say this, work/life balance is huge for me, so I'm not looking to become the CEO, but I got myself through law school and make good money, and if I put my mind to bowling a 200, I do it. I'm good at stuff, and smart, and I guess I'm just saying, I can be competitive and driven and I will fight for something or someone I love. I'd like to keep getting better at everything, especially the love part.
So here's the honesty part: I'm definitely in this for the real deal, long term and all--looking for my last and greatest love. But you have to know that part of that for me (and hopefully you too) is finding that powerful attraction where you feel like you want to spend just about every minute together, and rip each other's clothes off, too. First off, I just about melt when touched. I think they say you're supposed to get at least 30 seconds of hugs a day and be touched like 20 times, and I'm all over that theory. 😊 So the touch and affection thing is huge for me, but laughter and a deep connection is most critical, no doubt, and probably makes life amazing above all. So I'd like all of that again. I think if you have that with someone, the physical sparks and sex and make out sessions and passion and sensuality along with the laughter, then you've got something phenomenal. Again, perhaps too honest and too soon. Geez Mike, wait till the 3rd date at least!!! What can I say? I'm Italian and a Scorpio.
