You are a kind, fun-loving girl, with a touch of class, but just as happy in jeans and a tee-shirt. My ultimate goal is to find a soul-mate, this is something to be discovered over time. Eventually, I want to grow into a well balanced relationship, both of us grateful to have found each other.
Chemistry and physical attraction are important. For me, physical attraction is not solely based on looks; a smile and a positive attitude go a LONG way for me. I would much prefer a girl next door with a positive attitude, over a high maintenance and/or negative individual. I would enjoy the company of a confident individual, not afraid to speak her mind, but not so as to be abrasive.
As for myself, people generally describe me as kind, intelligent, likable, and a "regular guy". I strive to eliminate conflict, and I'm quite empathetic. I feel I do a good job of understanding someone's viewpoint even if I disagree. A family-oriented man, I maintain 50/50 physical custody of my children and consider myself an involved father. I maintain close ties with my family on Long Island - and I'm also fortunate to have maintain relationships with my relatives in Italy.
With all the hopes of finding that one special person, I won't be offended if you decide I'm just not the guy for you. We can walk away our separate ways, no one better than the other. Point is: you should feel comfortable taking a chance with me -- otherwise it's an opportunity lost by not giving it a shot.
Raising my two kids.
Math, science (perhaps boring for some, but a turn on for others)
Reasonably mechanically capable (cars, home, yard, etc).
Italian food (grew up around great cooking)
Other ethnic food.
Nice piece of steak (preferably a filet), medium-rare.
A good barbecue, a nice pulled pork sandwich works well. For that matter, I know a nice little hole-in-the-wall that makes a great Jamaican jerk pork sandwich... Yum!
Most recent movie that I really loved: 'the Hangover'. I'll get into romantic comedies: loved 'Love Actually', including an occasional subtitled film, 'il Postino' and 'Cinema Paradiso' come to mind. Some lesser known movies: independent films 'Little Miss Sunshine' and 'the Brother's McMullen'. 'Robroy' (epic Scottish highlands, Liam Neeson, and Jessica Lange).
I'm a classic rock fan, from the more mellow Eagles and Fleetwood Mac, to heavier classic British rock: Led Zeppelin, the Who, the Rolling Stones, etc. I enjoy classic southern rock as well. I enjoy going out listening to a good live band.
As much as I love getting immersed in a good book, it's been a while. The last couple of month's, I have 'the kite runner' on my night-table, I need to get off my ... and start reading it...
Cell phone (kind of sad?!)
Love (holding my breath....)

What am I going to do for enjoyment today
Where are 'you'?
