I'm close with my family and try to see them as much as possible, especially my two nephews and niece. They live in Jersey so fortunately it's not too difficult to get out there if I wanted.
I'm looking for someone who is family oriented, intelligent, has a good sense of humor (appreciates a little sarcasm too) and will share similar interests as me so we can explore the city and other places together.
Food - I would have to narrow it down to Italian and Mexican as my favorites but I'd be willing to try most food once.
Going to the beach and/or lake
Sports (especially watching the Rangers and Mets)
My Mom's pasta and meatballs
