Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm 35 years old, I have a beautiful 11 year old daughter who I
take a few days a week. I used to run a mental health firm here in
Asheville until some cutbacks and burnout. I now work as an
executive recruiter for fixed income sales people (stock market
people) and I have a lot to give the right person. I am quirky,
kind and passionate with a Philly edge to me. I am a northerner
with a lot of northern qualities but I am a lover deep down. I love
all kinds of movies and am willing to try everything once. I am
somewhat old fashioned but also rather progressive in many ways,
really a strange mix. I can argue any side of a point and love to
converse for hours. I have a lot of issues like anyone else in the
world but I am always willing to talk about stuff and work through
things. I love to eat good food and have private conversation. I am
mostly, over going out to the bars to hang out, although if there
is a reason I can be persuaded to get a little crazy. I am at a
point in my life where I understand and know what I am looking for.
Although I am not always exactly sure what to do once I find the
person I'm looking for and there is some confusion there, I at
least know what I like and don't like. I need a woman who is warm
and affectionate. A woman that understands people and issues and
needs are very important. I love an old fashioned woman who is also
very diverse and strong in her own values and self. I am versatile
as I can go to a bar and play pool or go to a fine restaurant and
eat with the right fork. I have views on everything and I love to
discuss them. I can be very sensitive to my own feelings and others
feelings so I look for that in women. Respect is overly important
in my life and I love to give small presents for no reason, and
call you just to say hey, I also love to bring over your favorite
foods or cook for you, but I want someone who also likes to do the
same type of things. I want someone strong and independent but at a
point in her life to understand the importance of family and depth.
I have recently discovered in myself and in life that things are
not as easy and simple as we tend to make them. I know somewhere
deep down I have a dream and picture in my mind of a regular
beautiful life with the woman I love, but unfortunately as most of
us probably know on here, that is not always easy and not always
what we want or need. I feel as though I am moving in a different
direction in my life and right now I am mainly seeking someone to
hangout, have fun and see where it goes. I am no longer hanging
things on expectations or criticizing people for what they are not
but rather just trying to accept them for what they are and what we
could have together, without enormous expectations. If something
fun happens, awesome, if something boring happens, okay, if
something interesting or funny happens, cool and if something
extraordinary happens well then that would be most unexpected and
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Well.... I am raising my daughter as best I can, just embarked on a
new and very exciting (and hopefully lucrative career) which I
actually seem to enjoy very much. My new job gives me a lot of
flexibility and poses a true challenge to me, which I have missed
for a long while. I have a lot of good and reasonable dreams like
buying a nice house, getting a puppy, and taking some incredible
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm good at bragging hahah... well I am pretty good at a few
sports, I am really good at scrabble and most games in general. I'm
a very good poker player and actually played professionally for a
little while. I'm good at making people laugh and for some reason
trusting me with telling me all about their problems (not sure if
that is a gift or a curse). I am a decent writer and I think I am
fairly good at understanding people and what they are about.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Well I guess this question depends on if they talk to me or just
see me. If it is talking with me they usually notice that I am
fairly outgoing and funny on first impression. If just looking at
me, I have been told I have nice eyes and a nice ass for a white

On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Usually out at a nice dinner, maybe a drink, or a movie. Friday is
usually the one night of the week I really like to take advantage
of and do something fun and uninhibited.
