I'm a family oriented, down to earth, and funny guy with a lot of passion for life. I love good food and am definitely a foodie. I can cook and do dishes but I prefer doing one rather than both. I like craft beers and good wine too. My friends, brother, and I hang out a lot. I like going out with them and hitting up a restaurant and getting some drinks in the city, a concert, or going to a comedy club. NYC is awesome and I definitely enjoy it there but I've also found some great things to do on Long Island. When I'm just chilling at home, I'm watching TV and movies, listening to music, cleaning (very good at that), playing games, surfing the internet and talking with friends on the phone or FB, or playing my drums. I take care of myself by going to the gym or exercising every week and it jacks up my metabolism so I eat a lot haha. When I'm not home and want to do adventurous stuff, I go hiking, sailing, rock climbing, camping, backpacking, kayaking, and fun things like that. I love Yankees Baseball and am a huge fan. I don't hate on the Mets though. I also like basketball and watch football on occasion. I'm an Eagle Scout, but not a goody two shoes. I do have impeccable manners when I try however haha. I'm a good guy with a solid heart but I curse at times, make corny, stupid and dirty jokes and and if you can't take a joke...you need not apply here. Haha I love quoting Chappelle Show or Key and Peele.
Music is a big passion and I play drums and sing. I listen to rock, classic rock, hard rock, hip hop, reggae, grunge, blues, metal (not screamo), alternative, pop, drum and bass, trance, funk, funk/soul, and even jazz. Love my Pandora. Some favs: 311, Bob Marley, Redman, Method Man, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, Metallica, AIC, STP, Shinedown, Sevendust, Soundgarden, Justin Timberlake, AC/DC, Alter Bridge, Stick Figure, Coldplay, Cypress Hill, PvD, Tiesto, Oakenfold, Disturbed, Rolling Stones, Fall Out Boy, Foo Fighters, Green Day, GnR, Incubus, Beyonce, Rihanna, Pharrell Williams, John Mayer, DMB, Linkin Park, Matisyahu, Pink Floyd, RATM, RHCP, Tom Petty, and more.
What I'm Looking For
I'm looking for a serious relationship with the right person. My ideal partner has some similar interests, respectful, funny, and attractive. Not looking for the self centered types. Ideally you are working and have a career ahead of you. I generally like women who are more upbeat and outgoing rather than shy. I also want someone who will have time to see me during the work week and weekends, and not just for an hour or two. Someone STD free is a requirement for me. I want to communicate with someone every day. I want that person to be reciprocal with that communication.
Don'ts on a date:
-I cant believe I have to say this, but bad breath on dates is a big turnoff. Hygiene is an important part of taking care of yourself.
-Don't use your phone unless you're trying to show me something or if I'm using the bathroom. It's rude! People these days..
