I also have a car and a house.
I take a shower every day.
Can you say the same about your current man?
I am stable, educated, and responsible.
I've heard that women who are intelligent and successful often have trouble finding a date. I am totally fine with dating a woman who is smarter than me, has a better degree and a better job. I promise you I am not looking for a sugar mama, but a breadwinner would be totally awesome. I figure that, after a LONG courtship, it would be great to live in a true two-income household where we can afford to set aside a little bit of each paycheck for our travel fund, and then go see the world.
The "eww he's obsessed with sports" warning:
I have the NHL Center Ice package and I frequently attend both CBJ and OSU games. The winter time to me would be very boring without it.
I'm the same way with soccer, as I never miss a Columbus Crew home game unless someone in my extended family is getting married that day. As of this writing, I have missed two home games since 2008.
If the sports thing bothers you, do us both a favor and move along. I've realized that it's a bad idea to try and hide it.
On religion: my family background is actually Jewish, but we quit going to temple when I was 9 because the rabbi was a jerk. I don't have anything against people who are religious. As long as I'm not expected to become a weekly attendee then we can get along. I'm willing to consider dating a Jewish woman, but for me it's a huge turnoff to look at someone and think "Hey, she looks like one of my cousins!". I'm willing to consider dating a woman from a hindu or muslim background so long as she embraces modernity and moderation. The one religion that I universally abhor is Jehovah's Witnesses, and the reason is I would not be alive today if it weren't for blood transfusions, which they think are evil.
Making the most out of every day.
Making fruit smoothies in a blender.
Taking complicated things and making them easier to understand.
Describing things in a visual way.
I don't open my eyes enough for pictures unless I think about it or are reminded.
Movies: My favorites are anything directed by the Coen Brothers, Wes Anderson, or Paul Thomas Anderson. I still haven't seen the Master yet because I've been told by more than one person it was terrible.
Shows: Breaking Bad, House of Cards, HIMYM, Stewart/Colbert. I love NPR and BBC Radio 4. My guilty pleasures are Pawn Stars, Jim Henson's Creature Shop and Phineas and Ferb.
Music: I love anything with real instruments. Lately I've been on a Jazz / Blues kick.
Food: I like almost everything. My favorite restaurants in Columbus are El Arepazo, Creole Kitchen, and, if money is no object, Mitchell's Steakhouse.
I want to mention, by the way, that I am not opposed to eating vegetarian / vegan meals though I'd be lost if I were ever assigned to put one together myself. I certainly would have no problem with dating someone who is vegan or vegetarian as long as they respect that I won't give up meat. Every now and then having a meatless meal isn't such a bad thing, but I could never do it full time.
