I'm a good natured smartass, quiet at first but chatty over time. I'm a firm believer that there is no “one” person out there for me but I’ve had enough relationships to know that a deeply meaningful connection with another person is difficult to find. And should be respected and cherished.
I'm equally interested in friendships as well as potential partners. You can never have too many good people in your life.

EXTRA BONUS POINTS awarded on a sliding scale based on how close you live to me. I'm not a hermit or a snob. It's just that, in my neighborhood, owning a car is more of an inconvenience than a luxury and traveling to Hoboken or New Paltz will put a crimp in our relationship.
You have accurate/recent pics in your profile photos. I'm a BIG guy. I don't want you to be surprised by this when I show up to meet you so I have recent profile pics that show my face AND body. I’m more likely to respond to women who extend me the same courtesy.

A healthy sexual relationship: Why doesn't anyone ever list this? Are OkCupid users celibate?
People who use there, their and they're interchangeably. Were they raised by wolves or something?
The incredibly poor design of the OKCupid Android phone App.
The geopolitical impact of declining sales of Captain Crunch.
