I moved back to Philadelphia a little over a year ago, and I’m loving this city. But it’s time I start loving it with somebody else. So here’s what I got:
I have a pretty successful, accomplished, career in education, and while I work hard to be great at my career, I work to live, not the other way around. If you’re trying to climb the corporate ladder while your friends and family hold the base steady, I’m probably not the one for you.
I love to win, but I also like to admit defeat. It’s humbling and intense. I'm competitive, too, so don’t think I’ll hesitate to dominate you in ping-pong (like Forrest Gump) or Scrabble (like...er, some smart person with a huge lexicon). I appreciate the same in a woman.
I make my J. Crew suit (friggin’ thing was expensive!) look just as good as my white, Hanes v-necks (friggin’ things are so cheap!). I love a woman that can dress up or down. And say “friggin’”.
I love my memory-foam bed. You probably will, too. And no, I’m not thinking dirty here. Ok, well, maybe a little. I mean, come on...we all have biological needs, right? Ah, nevermind. It’s a comfortable bed. Let’s leave it at that.
I’m up at 5 nearly every day to run with my dog on Kelly Drive (don’t worry, you can sleep in on the comfy bed). The day rarely starts without that, but it never starts without some French-press coffee. I just need someone to share the coffee with.
I’m adept in the kitchen, and smooth in the grocery store. I make great pizza with homemade dough from my KitchenAid mixer. Yes, it’s very manly to have a KitchenAid mixer. And it’s more fun to make pizza for someone else.
While I usually eat a beet, kale, and goat-cheese salad for breakfast (it's friggin’ delicious) and other assorted healthy items, I never shy away from crushing wings, burgers, and beers. Neither should you.
I’m a loyal fan, friend, and foe. I support my Philadelphia sports teams like friends, regard my friends as family, and love my family unconditionally. You’ll be part of the latter.
I’ll quote Dumb & Dumber, Ace Ventura, and other select movies...if you laughed, that’d be a plus. “Hey, maybe I'll give you a call sometime. Your number's still 911? All righty then.”
I spent 5 weeks in the Dominican Republic building a school for Haitian immigrants in the mountains of the southwest region of the country. I've been to China, England several times, Venezuela, and lots of other places. I love traveling the world, but I find just as much joy sitting on the beach in North Wildwood. I hope you can, too.
I can appreciate someone who is well-traveled, has eccentric tastes and a variety of hobbies, but I’m impressed by someone who is humble, generous, and loyal. I’m looking for an attractive and intelligent women who can challenge me in words and actions. If you think that highly of yourself, and you should, shoot me an email. If I don’t respond, accept my apologies. Time is precious, both yours and mine. No sense in wasting it.
