I've been described as funny and cute. I can live with that description. Ready to change from single to couple. I'm slim and active with a playful personality. I've got my own insight into current events and politics, but I'm 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. My ideal partner is someone who is not superficial and understands that friendship is the foundation for everything. I'm only here for dating that leads to a LTR. I know what I want and I hope there's someone interested in finding the same thing.
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'm open to dating women who are older than me and I am attracted to most body types (except morbidly obese).
I can be mischievous, silly and creative, but sometimes I'm mellow, thoughtful and quiet. I like flea markets, food trucks, cartoons of all sorts, goofing off, people watching (and subsequent commentary), spicy everything, and chocolate in all forms. I don't like tomatoes in my salad or on my burgers, but I have to eat my fries with ketchup. Makes sense, right? 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.
There needs to be more honesty in online dating. So many people are not how they portray themselves in their personal ads and it doesn't take long to figure out why they are still single. A lot of you are just nuts...lol. Please have something more to say than "Hello" if you choose to message me. If you don't know how to start a conversation on here, how are you going to do it in person on a date? "Hi" does not break the ice; it just slides over it. Also, if you genuinely want to meet me, then write to me. Please don't use the "Meet Me" feature. I think it's the tackiest thing on here. Online dating is not easy and I wish everyone the best of luck.
**I'm not interested in dating African-American women. It's a preference, not prejudice.**
**Only interested in women from Queens, Manhattan, or Nassau County**
