My self-summary
I'm back to OKC after a bit of a hiatus, I find online dating both compelling and exhausting...but here we go again.

I'm social, self-confident, fit, ambitious, caring and looking for someone who generally shares these same traits and values.

I have lots friends from many phases of my life and I am very close with my family. I'm the youngest of 5 so I can pretty much get along with anyone, but having said that, I'm attracted to smart, kind people who take care of themselves both emotionally and physically.

I've had a couple of LTR's so I'm fairly good at relationships (or not depending on how cynical you are). I've been single for a while now and I actually enjoying dating, but I'm ultimately looking to find someone to share my life with. I'd love to have a family of my own someday if I meet the right guy.

I don't take myself or the bougie gay NYC life too seriously, and appreciate that trait in others. Even as a native New Yorker I love getting out to the country as possible, whether it's the beach, the woods or the mountains.

I enjoy the hunt as much as anyone (probably more), but after a few years of dating, I've realized that I'm not necessarily looking for a boyfriend or a husband anymore, but a partner who I can truly connect with.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm an architect and urban planner. I currently work in real estate development and teach a college course.

I enjoy running, reading, gardening, cooking, travel, museums and other typical urban gay pastimes.
I’m really good at
Talking to people and making folks feel comfortable around me.

I'm also a pretty good cook and not bad with plants (and children) though not necessarily in that order....
The first things people usually notice about me
Not sure about this one, maybe you could tell me if we meet up.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books too many to list but here are a few classics I reread and recent reads - The Great Gatsby, The Secret History, The Corrections, Freedom. Recently really liked A Visit from the Goon Squad, the first Hunger Games, Rules of Civility and Gone Girl. I just finished The Goldfinch, it took me FOREVER, but I enjoyed it...

Movies - Gattaca, Love Actually and basically any silly rom com (embarrassing but true)

Music - I'm not really into anything in particular, I choose music to fit my mood, classical on the weekday mornings, trashy pop/disco to work out or run to, jazz on lazy weekends, etc.

Love most types of food, will basically try anything and I love to cook and entertain.
The six things I could never do without
iPad, my 2 dogs, books, my family, coffee and chocolate
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Sex, Food and Real Estate (not necessarily in that order either)
On a typical Friday night I am
Depending on the week, it could be the gym, afterwork drinks or dinner with friends, at home binge-watching Netflix with takeout, or sitting in traffic trying to get out of town.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I like eating food that is really bad for me.
You should message me if
You are intelligent, ambitious and self-confident.

Although someone once told me that my ideal partner would be...

"someone who is caring, kind, sweet and passionate, but driven in his own life, can be younger than you but an old soul, someone who can go toe to toe with you but also cuddle up and someone who is good at being social but more a home body"

If any of this resonates with you drop me a line....
