I want someone I can talk to. Someone who I can laugh with, preferably everyday. I need someone who gets me. A guy with an ego but has humility-someone who is confident but not conceited. Someone who likes kids, I have 1, a son, he's in 5th grade. I'm not sure about having more kids. I like music, I don't care for bars as an option for a first date (unless it's one of those low-key bars with no large rowdy crowds and no live bands). I do enjoy going to see bands though. I have a few favorite TV shows, I love action adventure and romantic comedy movies(I cry during sad movies - double X chromosomes what can I say), I hate HATE ghory horror films but I do like suspense or "thrillers". I'm a NY Giants fan at heart, but will also root for the Jets (who says you can't have a favorite AFC and NFC team?). I'm a realistic optimist, I need someone equally as cheerful. I am spontaneous and am usually up for anything, I love surprises(giving and receiving). I'm affectionate and loyal. I want to believe in love at first sight, but I've never experienced it so I'm skeptical. I love the beach and the ocean, if I could get paid to travel I would(but I love upstate NY too). I'm close to my family, but not in that freaky unhealthy way-I value my familial relationships. I need someone who can stand with me, stand on his own, and let me stand on my own, all at the same time.
