Why your mother would like me: I’m a fairly good cook, have the ability to be excessively polite, live a mostly clean lifestyle, spend an inordinate amount of time with my family, and have never hit a woman (in anger - sex doesn’t count).
Why your father would like me: my career has been established since I was 13, have no problem with any physical activity he’s interested in, play a damn good game of shesh-besh (backgammon for those with no Israeli roots), and have traveled quite a bit.
Why you will like me: Something for you to figure out (come on, these trading card versions of us can’t possibly tell everything). Parents are easy to win over by just being yourself. Women on the other hand are far more complicated creatures.
Though I have dated a lot of women, with the exception of some college and when I go to Israel once a year to visit my brother, very few have been Jewish. Since we just married him off to a wonderful little Israeli girl, I’m feeling the pressure.
I’m looking for my perfect woman who shares my brand of crazy (all women are nuts – as men we need to find crazy that we like): While I’m not sure how tall she is (preferably shorter than me – girls like heels), or what exact proportions she has (fit is important though – running, cycling, scuba, dancing, etc sort of necessary), I do know that she is intelligent (no stupid girl has ever lasted long regardless of how hot she was), mostly sane (just because date 2 is going as well as date one does not mean we are naming our children – don’t laugh, its happened), confident in herself, and radiant (a want a woman full of life – I want to look forward to talking, seeing, and touching you).
I’m confident (used to be arrogant in college – frat guy, sorry), charming (sure about this one – its how I win over parents), stable (never been a day out of work), pretty damn funny (objectively stated - you can tell when people laugh), and clean up well (sadly I am completely un-photogenic – you will have to carry us in nearly every picture).
I hope to find you, or for you to find me.
