Things I like: Integrity, Originality (I'd rather get hit with a speeding bullet than a slow-moving cliche), good food, the perfect (unfrozen) margarita, shameless flattery (giving and receiving as long as it's genuine) Shameful, but genuine flattery ain't bad either. Anything with effort done well. Skiing. How I feel after a run. Good banter.
Women I like: those who have extremely well developed...senses of humor. If you can consistently make me laugh, I'm pretty much yours. Beyond that, hey, I'm a guy. Just enough of one to at least consider the photos, and being in shape is vital. By the way, if you already know (and liked) the movie in which my screen name was featured, it's a good indication of compatibility. But there are probably others of greater importance. Challenge me, charm me, tell me something.
I like sports (playing and watching), but don't need a twelve step program. I cook reasonably well (people have really debased themselves begging for cheesecake- I kind of liked it a few times).
I'm liberal on most issues, conservative on a few, moderate on the ones about which I'm not particularly informed. I've been lucky enough in my career to be able to occasionally right a horrendous wrong. I like classic rock and folk-rock music, with a a little country blended in if it's done right.
Incredibly nice-almost always, and proud of it; Caveat: I simply have no patience for B.S. or rudeness, but I'm always good to nice people. I'm in good shape and work to stay that way. I should be able to keep you laughing (or giggling, if you go that way).
People have described me as intelligent and warm. None of these people owe me money or have been paid for their endorsement. But I approve this message.
Finally and perhaps most importantly, I'm the genuine article, with the emphasis on genuine. Be real, be sincere, and you've got yourself one damned good boyfriend.
You have something to say beyond Hello, Hi, or How are you (I'm fine, thanks for asking),
You drank too much redbull and can't sleep,
You think it's possible that I haven't written to you only because, while you're within my age range, I'm not within yours,
If you believe, really believe we could find that ever-elusive, gotta-have-it, scream from the rooftops chemistry,
Or more simply if you're in shape, have substance, and you want to share time with a guy who's very good company and gives great snuggle.
Also, gotta admit: I only work in Queens; I live in Nassau (but get to Manhattan and Brooklyn frequently and easily). Probably moving to Long Island City by year's end.
You should not message me if you live in NJ. Jersey ladies, many of you who've written are downright gorgeous and, as a huge Springsteen fan, I am often attracted to the down-to-earth Jersey girl type (in song and story-as opposed to the hang out at the mall type), but history has shown that I'm just not going there long term. Unless you own a premium brand tequila distillery or high end golf course. Then, let's talk.
