Ready to change from single to couple. I'm HWP, active, and full of energy (from sleeping so much...lol). I'm knowledgeable of current events and politics, but also respectful of other people's opinions. I know cool little things like where you can get a great slice late at night and which divey takeout has an awesome sesame chicken. I've had a ton of life experiences but I'm still hungry for more. I'm self-aware enough to accept my part in the failure of prior relationships and mature enough to have learned from them.
What am I looking for on here? Something good that can turn into something greater. My eye is on the future and I hope I can meet someone that will give me a reason to never need to be on here again. I'm really easy to talk to and I can find humor in almost anything. I crack myself up a lot but it's always more fun if someone else is also laughing at/with me. ;) I am a pretty fun guy to be around but I'm also somebody that enjoys a good conversation. You know, the kind you might have at a diner in a cozy booth.
A lot of women on here complain about guys playing games. I don't play games. We shoot the sh-t over some messages and if there's mutual interest, then we go on a date. If we hit it off on the date, then we go on more of them. If not, then it's back into the fish tank. Now, if you want to play some board games, I'll be happy to kick your butt. :P The important thing to remember is that romance can't be boiled down to a checklist. It's impossible to predict with whom you'll have chemistry and compatibility. Let's give each other a chance to surprise ourselves.
I come from a very small family and as it gets smaller over time, it really makes me appreciate how important it is to have somebody by your side. Somebody that can make you laugh, think, relax and feel comfortable. Somebody that you can stand being in a car with for several hours. Very important.
Some surprising things about me:
-I totally get the thrill of bargain hunting so I'm a good shopping companion.
-I committed petty crimes in my youth (and got away with them...lol).
-I can watch sports and PBS with equal interest.
-I'm fearless when it comes to amusement parks. I'll go on any ride. I'm also fearless driving through Manhattan.
