Grew up in South Jersey (exotic, I know) and have been living in the city for about 3 years. I definitely enjoy it here, but see myself settling down outside the city when my career's in full swing and I've found a great guy. In the meantime, I'm mostly interested in seeing the sights, trying new restaurants and bars, aimlessly walking around the city with or without friends, and working...working a lot. When I'm not doing that stuff, I enjoy getting out of the city - going for road trips, visiting family, skiing, hiking, and going to the beach. I tend to see myself as a pretty adventurous guy; will try anything once and I appreciate the same in others.
Which brings me to what I look for in a potential partner...
I definitely appreciate ambitious guys. A guys with a plan. Someone who works as hard as he plays, and doesn't apologize for it. Some other things I look for; my age or a little older (usually), close with family, passionate, fun, outgoing, and, just for good measure (no pun intended), taller.
One other thing I'll say...I'm NOT looking for a hook up. As I mentioned, looking to get to know a nice guy. With that said, sexual compatibility IS important, so I'm definitely willing to field those questions.
