Because I'm from Boston i'll be as direct as I can. If you like Larry David you'll love me; if you don't, chances aren't as good. I can cook better than you most likely, but if not I love to compete. I love sports, totally fine if you don't, but if you're looking for someone who doesn't like them, I'm not your man. Being from the East Coast I'm more about substance than style, I am not focused on finding a high maintenance beauty queen. I am quiet at first, but very social once I open up. I work for myself as a head hunter for web start-ups, fairly successful and love it. Unfortunately I spend most of my time with geeky web developers and not women, so I turn to Match after great resistance. I'm pretty confident in who I am and what I want, so not looking to quantity, rather quality. I need someone who can challenge me intellectually, be a friend and not be looking to just be a barnacle. If you don't like dogs, I'm not your man, as you can see I have one who is probably the most fun dog ever. I have old fashion values but am a lot more open minded than most others who do. I'm fun, but want someone with good values at their core. Outside work I'm fairly active and spend a good portion of my winter in Tahoe skiing (although this winter is slightly frustrating with no snow). Hope this helps and talk with you soon!
