I’m a romantic at heart; optimistic about love, life and finding someone to laugh through life with. I’m attractive, athletic, professionally successful, passionate and easily inspired by so many things. Friends would say I'm "comfortable in my own skin," I've got a great sense of style, I’m loyal, energetic, spontaneous, have a good sense of humor, humble and maintain a good balance between opinionated and go-with-the-flow.
I’m enthusiastic about travel --- whether it’s a day trip an hour out of the city to check out a new town to walk around and shop, a weekend spa getaway, or taking a few days off to attend events like JazzFest in New Orleans (the food just as much as the music!). I also get excited about travel abroad and can’t wait to plan my next trip; places I’ve thoroughly enjoyed include Austria, Greece, Thailand and Paris. I really do enjoy experiencing different places; I'm originally from the suburbs of New York, spent time in CA for university, Boston post college years and most recently lived in NYC prior to relocating to West Hollywood.
I’m perfectly content spending a quiet romantic evening at home --- takeout or cooking, (love to cook), with a movie and a great bottle of wine as I would be meeting up with friends --- experiencing a new restaurant, hitting a bar, going to the theater to catch a great play, a concert, shooting some pool or throwing some darts. I enjoy sports, as a spectator (Yankees / Knicks / Rangers / Giants ... always a NYer!), but moreso enjoy participating in sports; I exercise regularly, run 20 miles a week, have taken up tennis lessons, do my best at golf, relive my hockey days when I strap on my ice skates, enjoy photography, fool around on the guitar and am not afraid to admit I have enjoyed taking a few ceramic classes. I’ve gotten into collecting antiques and art as well.
Relationships influence so many aspects of our lives and are a huge part of our daily happiness. For that reason, emotional connectivity, affection and communication are so vital to me. I know that a successful relationship is built on mutual trust, respect, honesty and especially having the ability to compromise. It’s a give and take…and I love to give. I am a secure and sensitive guy who has learned a great deal from my past relationships and experiences about what I want from life and am confident enough to go after it.
I’m interested in a woman who is smart, sensual, driven, confident and attractive with a great sense of humor. She is aware of her uniqueness and feels ok to show it. She knows what she wants or, more importantly, at least isn’t afraid of trying to go after it. The woman I would be interested in meeting is a good communicator, not confrontational, but someone who understands when to support and when to push. I'm interested in a woman who seeks a balanced relationship. I'm not interested in stereotypical and traditional roles. I grew up in a house full of very independent, smart women and although I'm well-mannered and chivalrous, I thoroughly enjoy when the woman I'm with shares in taking the lead.
I’m not interested in dating myself I think that differences are keys to learning, growth and experiencing new things and would welcome someone who has varying interests. That said, I do think it’s really important to be in a relationship where there is a mutual sharing of activities and interests together. I'd absolutely love it if you played tennis and we could rally together; that's one of the things I most look forward to after a long work week.
I believe that what makes for a great experience is the feeling that I’m sharing it with someone special and the awareness that it doesn’t matter where we are because I know we’re going to have a fantastic time together.
