I have my act together and now that I've finally found my place in life, it really feels like something is missing. After meeting many women who really aren't my type, I'd like to meet a woman who is compatible with me. I don't have a particular reason why I haven't found the one for me yet, it's a combination of factors - not living in an area that's popular with young people, being too picky, not attracting the right women, etc. Also, I've noticed that a lot of women don't have a healthy attitude when it comes to dating. I can't correct self-defeating behaviors, the only thing I can do is try...
As for what I'm looking for, I hope to meet first and foremost a genuinely nice person. Nothing is more impressive than a woman who is just very smart and down to earth. Sophistication really piques my interest (dressing well, eating healthy, having an interest in culture, etc.). I know a lot of young people like tattoos, recreational drug usage, potty mouth language, taking scantily clad pictures of themselves, and so forth - those are HUGE turnoffs for me. Last but not least, I would like to meet someone who has a good sense of humor.
In my free time, I'm really into trying different beers and whiskeys (...but I'm just a social drinker). If the weather is nice after work then I usually go for a little bike ride or to the gym. I also like to go to Barnes & Noble to catch up on my favorite magazines. One of my guilty pleasures is watching House Hunters.
Movies: Catch Me If You Can, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Lost in Translation, Meet the Parents, Her.
Shows: Pawn Stars, Flip or Flop, House Hunters, and Diners Drive-Ins & Dives. Can't wait for the new season of Million Dollar Listing NY!
Music: I just listen to whatever is on the radio (which is usually tuned to NPR or Bloomberg), and I love 80's music - with a huge collection to prove it! I'm a big fan of Sublime, 311, and Red Hot Chili Peppers.
Food: Chinese Food, sushi, mushroom pizza, Sam Adams beer, dark chocolate, salsa, Mexican food. I'm turning into a beer snob.
If I pique your interest, send me a message. I'm sorry that I probably don't live in the SAME exact city or town as you - it's a big world! Love is a result of mutual attraction, not distance. I can't imagine telling people that I'm dating someone simply because she lives nearby - well, I could, but it might make people do a double-take. Is it possible to be a bit flexible and put a bit more effort into dating??
I realize my profile is a bit sarcastic and I'm sorry if you're offended. It's really just a result of my own frustration and wanting to be in a relationship for a long time now. For those of you who hope to make a connection just because I'm Jewish - it probably won't work (it could, but I doubt it!). My religion just isn't something that defines me. At one time it did, but now that I'm older I have other priorities. Ultimately, it's the quality of the person that matters the most.
