Stay with me here...I know chemistry in person has to be there. But here's my overly simple theory about online dating--you should want to connect over the phone, kind of 7th grade old school butterflies calling, and there should be some idea right off the bat that if I look anywhere close to my pictures, then you'll want to jump my bones. Not that you would immediately, but you should want to. And if you do, and if you think I'm funny (I am), then this should work. That's it. 😊❤️
So here's the full on Moby Dick version of my profile:
I'm just looking for a genuine connection with someone sweet and sexy and fun and cool, funny and smart and affectionate. Maybe we could watch John Oliver or Game of Thrones together. Or Hulu Plus!!! I just signed up! It's a-ma-zing!!! If that's you and you're looking for someone great, hit me up. I'd love to hear from you. (Also, if you're interested in driving in my super duper sporty electric Fiat that I got recently. So exciting!)
I'm a divorced dad (I have 50% custody of my 10 year-old son), and I'm trying to learn and grow everyday as a person and as a dad. My son asked to hear the Bangles' "Manic Monday" the other day so I'm pretty sure I've accomplished all that I need to already. 😊 And I'm both naughty and nice as you may have already seen from what I've written in this profile.
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 passed the bar exam, I 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 that honesty thing again that echoes what I said initially: 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.
