I am a nice guy with a good sense of humor who enjoys staying active. I work hard and I have a good career but I don't let work define who I am. I do a very good job of balancing both my personal life and my work life.
I grew up in upstate NY and now live and work in NJ. I lived in NYC for a time and as such I'm equally at home in the country or the city. I like living close to NYC and spend a fair amount of time dining and exploring all the things that the city has to offer.
I'm more of a jeans/t-shirt kind of guy (and not the $100/jeans $60/T-shirt kind) and I'm more comfortable in a neighborhood bar than I am at a club. I take pride in the fact that I have many friends that I've known for half my life.
I'm looking for someone who has a gentle disposition, a great sense of humor, quick wit, is honest, independent and confident in who she is. Confidence is the key. I really believe that if you are honest about who you are you will find the right person for you. If you enjoy the "finer" things and feel the need to point that out in your profile we're probably not going to get along. While I do enjoy them too I'm I don't demand them. Friendship is not out of the question as I enjoy meeting new people and hearing their stories.
I love cooking and love learning how to prepare new dishes. I'll try to cook just about anything. With recent trips to London and Spain I discovered that I like exploring out of the way places not just the popular, touristy spots.
I have been separated for 2 and a half years. Yes that is a long time and if we ever get to that point I'll gladly share the reasons. I have two boys who I dote on whenever I get the chance. I have a very good relationship with my STBX so no drama there. Sometimes things just don't work out.
