Anyway, I work in finance downtown (think Ben Stiller in Along Came Polly) and live in the East Village. I love to go out, but no longer view myself as a party animal. I consider myself loyal, down to earth, outgoing and sometimes even remotely cool.
I'm a gym rat and a total sports nut. I'm really family oriented and couldn't imagine dating someone who doesn't share that quality. I always try to grow and learn from both positive and negative experiences, though admittedly this isn't always easy.
More about me? Ok, fine.. I went to college at Penn State and had a freaking blast. I spent my mid-20's living in Hoboken and NYC each for a few years while working on my career, having fun, hanging with my friends and even traveling a bit. Because transparency is fun.. I'll tell you that I dated a lot, but as I reflect now, I never really mentally committed to anyone despite meeting some truly awesome girls. I've always thought "it" happens later for guys than it does for girls and it's kind of a strange feeling seeing it first-hand. So now, for the first time, I want to meet someone [actually read: The Someone]. Clarity and I guess in more simpler terms, growing up is a funny thing. I'm excited about the next stage of my life and I know that it includes someone out there that I probably haven't met yet. Maybe I'll meet her online or maybe I'll meet her drunk at a crowded bar... yea, exactly.
So here's some things I like: good grammar, dogs, kids (I've got 3 nephews, 1 niece and am expecting one more TBD next month), running, cooking, sneakers, the beach, avocados, v-necks, working out, whiskey, happy hours, cheesecake, red wine and tapas bars.
And some things I kinda don't like: lazy people, Philly sports fans, bright red lipstick (some chicks can actually pull this off though), vodka, my nerdy glasses and blue cheese.
Oh and in 4th grade, I didn't know how to spell the word 'depot' and lost in a spelling bee. Now I only buy hardware from Lowe's.
