I will make this an interesting and to-the-point summary of who I am as I find myself glaring over long descriptions from others whom I try to read.
I am a single dad. I came out of a mentally-numbing abusive ex girlfriend who is also the mother of my daughter.
I will know right off if I am being manipulated. Lots of practice thanks to the ex.
I am a family man. I am not a player like most others take as a badge of pride.
I take care of my daughter most of the time and she will always come first.
I am left handed. I like to keep my hair long. I am half Filipino/half Spanish (from Spain)
I don't watch sports but am ok with someone that does.
I am barely getting back into the dating world but being a single parent I realize is the leprosy of the dating world.
I am ok with someone who has kids of their own. I don't mind meeting someone 50 miles away because that's how much I have been commuting to work for more than 10 years.
I do not like girls who will continue to have guy friend(s) when they are with me. I am not a jealous or insecure person but, if a woman has to still have guy friend(s) that they need to text/call, go to lunches with, run errands with, then that means that the man they are dating is not meeting specific requirements that they are looking for in a partner. STOP KIDDING YOURSELVES!!! This always 100% leads to fights and mistrust on both parties dating in the long run.
I like going out to eat and try new eats. I try to stay in shape and healthy.
I am practicing Catholic, although difficult at time to stay on the path but regularly go to Church. It matters not if the other person practices religion.
I like to go to new places and travel but I am more of a homebody and will just be as satisfied staying to watch a movie and talk.
I seldom tend to fly off the handle with my opinions about things. I do know tact and respect.
My ideal first date is one with great conversation. I don't care if it is merely at a coffee shop, mcdonalds, or a fancy restaurant... As long as the conversation is great.
