I grew up in Philadelphia, went to school in DC, and now I'm
working for a law firm. I'm well-traveled, well-read, usually
well-dressed and a college grad. I work hard but I play harder. I
like go out to eat with my friends, drink wine and beer, go to
lounges/bars, shop, brunch, travel, go to the shore, wander the
city, etc. I run every day. My friends are the most important
people in the world. I love to read, but I definitely don't do it
enough (especially considering I was an English major). I have a
Yorkie named London who goes pretty much everywhere with me. I'm a
little too attached to my iphone. I'll give anyone a chance, but
second chances are another story. I'm close with my family. I cook.
A lot. I like to eat. I do a lot of scenes, but I don't do the gay
scene unless i have to. I don't pretend to be a homebody, but I
don't mind staying in for the right person. I don't take myself too
seriously, contrary to what some of my self-indulgent glamorpix
convey. I like grey goose martinis, extra dirty, no vermouth. Once
you've earned my trust, I'm fiercely loyal.

Right now, my socks don't match.
You should message me if
You're genuinely a good guy underneath the pretense.
You should have an idea of what you're doing with your life. You
should care about your looks but not obsess over them. If you refer

Coffee dates are for people who don't want to be around each other.

My standards aren't that different from a job interviewer's
standards-- you should have a college degree, no criminal record, a
good head on your shoulders, and no crazy/excessive tattoos,
piercings, nail polish, or bizarre clothing. It's really sad that I
have to mention these, but... yeah, you'd be surprised.
I don't really have a ""type" but but I like clean-cut guys that
are comfortable socializing with new people. I usually date guys a
little older with type-A personalities. You should be able to hang
out at lounges or dive bars, and know the latest gossip on both
Britney and Obama. Quirky is good. Weird is not.
