The truth is I love to date. I enjoy gaining new experiences however awkward and weird they may be. There's adventure and mystery to it. Oh - wait - did you just drool? Well, I just spilled soup all over my pants. It's all fine, really. Here's a breath mint. We'll live.
So, yes, I want to have fun, and if I meet someone especially cool then, all the better.
3-4 days out of the week, I spend time with my daughter. She's the best! Especially, if you're into insanely cute and freaking awesome people that are six years old and determined to take over the world with a large army of stuffed animals.
I also sing, play guitar, and write songs in a band. We're becoming more active and finishing up our first record - very excited about that!

Alfred Hitchcock slays me. Same goes for Kurosawa and there are a bunch of French guys from the 60's that did some bizarre stuff that's still fresh every time I check it out. International movies probably make up the majority of my favorites. However, with all that said, going to the movies for a blockbuster and a huge bag of popcorn is a cherished pastime. Give me the 3-D glasses!
I will refuse The Smurfs.
Really enjoyed The Night of - loved John Turturro's performance. Other shows: Halt and Catch Fire, The Walking Dead, The Wire, Better Call Saul. I am a sucker for Friday Night Lights, I have to admit.
Music is something I used to be super snobby about in my twenties, but then I developed enough guilty pleasures to break it. Best thing that could have happened to me. All thanks to Mozart (I can't believe I said it!)
No. Not true.
Curtis Mayfield is my god. I'll just say that.
I often crave Santucci's pizza and have a hard time turning down good Indian and Vietnamese.

But...I would prefer to date a woman who has strong emotional intelligence, a decent sense of humor, an understanding of who she is, and an easy access to empathize with others.
Also, for those wary of dating me because I'm a divorced single parent, I understand most concerns. I've been divorced for three years, and the initial separation happened five years ago. The co-parenting relationship is healthy with established boundaries, and my daughter is an especially happy child. Yes - I naturally put her first as any caring parent would, but I have no problem whatsoever investing time and energy into a healthy and loving relationship with a partner.
