Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I grew up in New York City and moved to the DC metro area and have
lived here for about 22 years. I still have family ties in NYC and
travel there, quite frequently. I enjoy pleasant, relaxed, unforced
conversation with all company. A good sense of humor is a plus. I
like going to cultural events and trying ethnic and Americana
cuisine or just anything new. I enjoy good food, craft beer and
wine; enjoy Pinot Noirs the most and enjoy going to
Breweries/Tap-Rooms and Vineyards. I cook a lot at home; it's one
of my favorite pastimes and it relaxes me. I love to try new
recipes. I'm a real Foodie if you haven't noticed already. The
music I enjoy the most is '70s and '80s tunes. I've been to
Wolftrap a few times to see some of the greats like Earth, Wind,
& Fire and Michael Macdonald. Camping and hiking is always
enjoyable and I try to go on a few trips every summer. I like to go
on bike rides on the W&OD and C&O Canal trails among
others. I enjoy traveling--both business and pleasure--and like to
talk about my travel experiences and where I'd like to go.
Internationally, I've been to: Belize, Dominican Republic, Canada,
Mexico, South Korea, Singapore, Sweden, Israel and Egypt. My
Daughter primarily lives with her Mother; so, I am not looking for
someone to be a Mother or baby-sitter to my child since she already
has one. I enjoy spending time with my 14 year old daughter, every
other weekend and some weeknights. Also, not interested in blending
a family--mainly, not looking to play a father role to other young
children or teenagers. Ideally, they have a father in their life,
for that is a wonderful thing. If this kind of schedule works for
you, send me a note.
Good luck in your search!
P.s. Please don't bother unless you provide photos. Fair is fair,
I've provided about 10 pics of me.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Living the dream! Keeping Bees (I have 2 hives that I maintain),
staying healthy, going to work, laughing--trying not to take many
things too seriously, enjoying good travels, good friends and
acquaintances, good dining, and entertainment.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Yard projects, landscaping, beekeeping, planning for fun, grilling,
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I really don't know..never thought to ask them. But, if I were to
conjecture: my friendliness.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Hard one..seems like there's lots. So, right off the bat:
Fav books - "East of Eden" (Steinbeck), Jame's Patterson's
Detective Alex Cross series (there's like 20 in the series so far),
"The Hobbit", "Catcher In The Rye", "The Lion, The Witch and The
Wardrobe". Plenty here-- I'll probably think of more later.
Movies - "Shawshank Redemption", "The Godfather I and II",
Shows - "Walking Dead", "Blue Bloods", "House of Cards", "Game of
Thrones", "Ripper Street", "Bates Motel", "Aerial America".
Generally, I like documentaries, science and history and watch
Travel Channel, History and Nat Geo channels.
Music - 70s and 80s baby!
Food - Yes, love food! A good burger always rocks. Lots of my home
cooking involves rice dishes. I love various ethnic foods; lately,
Pakistani is a hit for me. I Enjoy Greek, Thai (one of my favs),
GOOD Chinese, Persian, Vietnamese (including Pho and Banh mi
sandwiches), Sub sandwiches (e.g., Jason's Deli, Santini's, Jersey
Mike's) Tony's NY Style Pizza, sometimes pizza night with my
daughter with homemade fixins'..sometimes Fast Food hits the
spot--Baja Fresh is high on the list these days. And I'm not above
going to Mickey D's, either.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1) My awesome Daughter;
2) A paycheck;
3) Food n Drink;
4) Oxygen and a pulse;
5) TV and Internet;
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Things other than work; I do not live for my work!
What I'll eat for my next meal.
Tomorrow and the near-future.
The next vacation.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Typically, every other Friday, I pickup my Daughter for the
weekend. On my free Friday, I'm either doing happy hour with
friends or home chillin'--watching good programming and drinking
good wine (usually Pinot Noir) or beer.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Can't say..it's private. But get to know me better, and naturally,
I'll open up:)
