I'm a genuinely nice guy with a lighthearted outlook on life. I don't sweat the small stuff, and I can find the humor in any situation (except maybe for a puppy funeral). I like to joke around and be silly, but I’m also intelligent, educated (bachelor’s and master’s degrees from MIT), and responsible. I’m thankful to have a great career as an engineer with Intel. Honesty and integrity are very important to me (after all those years working as a top secret agent for the CIA, lying my way into the confidences of foreign dignitaries, I got sick of all the deceit). My parents (who are still happily married) raised me to be a respectful man who believes in chivalry and knows how to treat a lady right.
I'm a renaissance man, of sorts, with an ever-expanding set of interests. Cooking is something I really enjoy--I've even won a couple [small] chili cook-off’s and other competitions. I enjoy trying new restaurants and exotic foods. Music is a passion of mine. I play multiple instruments and recently taught myself to play the mandolin. I love the outdoors and like to go camping, hiking, etc. Italian culture is very interesting to me. Right now I’m brushing up on my Italian for a big Italy trip I’m taking this summer.
I think I have reasonable expectations for what I'm looking for... just a Victoria's secret model with a culinary degree from Le Cordon Bleu, and of course she should be a world-class harpist. :) But seriously, I'm looking for a loyal, affectionate, caring girl with a positive, happy view of life. I want to meet someone who likes to try new experiences, who enjoys laughing, and who appreciates a good man who will treat her right. If that’s you (or if it’s not you but you’re really, really, ridiculously good-looking), send me a message. Ciao!
P.S. Do NOT ask me to send you naked pictures of myself! Have some class, please!
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
A great meal, perhaps some wine or a couple drinks, then maybe a round of mini golf or a couple games of pool. Anything where we can talk and get to know each other.
Or, I can show you the puppy I keep in the back of my windowless van...KIDDING!
