You are a kind, fun-loving girl, with a touch of class, but just as happy in jeans and a tee-shirt. My ultimate goal is to find a soul-mate, this is something to be discovered over time. Eventually, I want to grow into a well balanced relationship, both of us grateful to have found each other.
Chemistry and physical attraction are important. For me, physical attraction is not solely based on looks; a smile and a positive attitude go a LONG way for me. I would much prefer a girl next door with a positive attitude, over a high maintenance and/or negative individual. I would enjoy the company of a confident individual, not afraid to speak her mind, but not so as to be abrasive.
As for myself, people generally describe me as kind, intelligent, likable, and a "regular guy". I strive to eliminate conflict, and I'm quite empathetic. I feel I do a good job of understanding someone's viewpoint even if I disagree. A family-oriented man, I maintain 50/50 physical custody of my children and consider myself an involved father. I maintain close ties with my family on Long Island - and I'm also fortunate to have maintain relationships with my relatives in Italy.
With all the hopes of finding that one special person, I won't be offended if you decide I'm just not the guy for you. We can walk away our separate ways, no one better than the other. Point is: you should feel comfortable taking a chance with me -- otherwise it's an opportunity lost by not giving it a shot.
