My self-summary
First of all: I don't see "likes." Meaning that unless you actually write me, I won't know you're interested and can't respond.

So about me: I'm a successful freelance copywriter, moved here from Boston in 2011 when my daughter was born. If I had to describe myself, and evidently I do, first would be "funny" (I used to work for Hallmark writing humor cards). Then again most guys think they’re a lot funnier than they really are, so take it with a grain of salt. I believe I’m intelligent. Women tell me I’m nice-looking, and some of them aren't even drunk at the time (although my eyes do get squinchy when I smile). I’m definitely a good listener, very into other people and their lives--not one of these guys who adores the sound of his own voice. I can be a smart mouth for sure, but not to hurt or spite. I try not to talk about people behind their backs, and when I do I always feel crappy afterwards. Basically I’m a big-hearted guy looking for a best friend and lifetime love. How awesome if she were you!

Speaking of you: You’re a sweetheart, but also very witty, or cool, or whatever word describes that quality that makes you great to talk to and laugh with. People like you. You’re attractive and bear more than a passing resemblance to your photo (which, incidentally, does not show you in a bikini). You listen well and aren't your own favorite topic (that's an absolute deal-breaker). You’re smart. You can get through an entire sentence without saying the word "like" (not to sound churlish, but it drives me a little crazy, like I'm dating a tweener). You’re self-aware and connected to your inner life. You’re liberal, compassionate toward people in pain or need, seeking peace with yourself and the world. Last thing: Your kisses melt.
What I’m doing with my life
Working. Parenting. Trying to remember what it's like kissing a female who isn't wearing a plastic tiara and My Little Pony underpants.
I’m really good at
Writing, I guess.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to date when you're the single parent of a kindergartner.
On a typical Friday night I am
Reading to my daughter, cuddling her to sleep, then cleaning my house. Though hopefully you can change that.

(Meaning that I'll be on a date with you instead, not that you'll be cleaning my house.)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I won a journalism award in college for an article I mostly plagiarized.
