I enjoy everything from bicycling to black tie events (that sounds inane, but its true). Theater, beaches, a beautiful smile, adventure trips, tennis, interesting buildings, a sunset on the water, snowboarding, martinis, adore most animals (hate snakes), bubbly, I think you get the idea. You realize that treating people well, is the easiest way to make the world a better place to be. You also know that when you smile at me you make my day.
The woman I hope to meet, understands that the point of being on here is to not stay here, its to move on with life. I don't think this is a normal social life, but a means to something else. If you feel comfortable that weeks of these emails is your MO, its fine for you but be honest and please move on. Also if you are "separated" but still living with your husband, or for whatever reason are unable to allow a relationship to blossom normally, like you enjoy hanging out on a regular basis with your ex, we probably aren't right, so please move on (with your life as well). A good working relationship with your kids father is great, but whats up with not speaking on the phone? I am as good at texting as anyone, but if you can't ever talk at home even after the kids are in bed, there is probably something wrong from the start. LADIES why the way out of date photos? Truthful is a way better way to begin, than starting wrong by not looking anything like your pic. The lady I hope for is compassionate, honest (don't lie about your age, get real, it is what it is), attractive, loyal, witty, willing to at least accept other cultures and ways of life, athletic, health aware, interesting, gracious, charitable, romantic, can express her feelings, wants to hold hands in public or walk arm in arm. She is present, diverse and is someone I can and will admire. Am I asking for too much? I work in and commute to NYC, most days, but I stay active in my young son's life (PTA, sports coach, his health etc.) and share custody with his mother. That means I have a parenting plan. If you have one you know what I mean, if you don't, please try to respect that I do have one, so cut me me some slack if I am not available 7 nights a week. Don't worry, if we get there, I promise to do everything I need to do to have plenty of time for "us".
