I open doors and pull out chairs for ladies, which apparently makes me too nice of a guy. I'm well-educated and well-read, but not a complete bore, because I tell great jokes and stories.
Movies - I'm up for most things, and enjoy movie trivia. I support a Constitutional Amendment barring Adam Sandler from making more movies.
Shows - I killed cable five years ago, and never looked back; there are a few shows I catch on iTunes or Amazon. At the risk of having my man license revoked, I get really bored sitting and watching an NFL game (or three) on Sunday.
Music - Blues, jazz, classic rock. I do have a preset for classical in the car, mostly when I need to decompress.
Food - Japanese, Cuban, Mexican, and French.
Friends and family
I know it scares off some people (I know I'd have reservations) and I do feel I'm not being upfront and honest by not disclosing this before getting too far in a relationship.
If you do message, please send something more substantive than "hi, how are you?"
One minor note - I have no issue with someone with children from a prior relationship. However if you have no children, but pets that you refer to as children, please seek psychiatric help immediately.
