Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I recently moved from a brownstone in Gramercy to a highrise
building on 42nd and 8th/9th lap pool, countertops, functioning
oven, sunlight (none of which I had in my prior rodent-infested
cave so I'm still kinda excited).... and getting used to the walk
to the Times Square subway (and seeing more "local" theatre),
which, since saturated with tourists, can actually be quite nice in
the "folks here are smiling and happy to be here and not in a
faux-ironic way but because they are on vacation in an iconic
setting" type of way.
That said, I'd be happy to move. Like to Patagonia or Highclere
Castle where I used to croquet (using that as a verb like they
might do) or Iowa or a tropical island.
I am looking for a gal who is similar to, and interested in,
aspects of the below:
Garden parties; darts/pool/pong/bowling/ mini-golf/ badminton;
HORSE/six v. six soccer; "crafting" lobster rolls in Downeast
Maine; picking blueberries; good films; good movies; The Onion; The
Daily Beast; the beginning romantic montages in "Up" and "Mr. and
Mrs. Smith" (particularly the playful-serious boardwalk stuffed
In school I played on soccer, basketball, tennis, rugby, football
and softball teams. I won a shitty student film award but received
a totally unfair Photography II grade. Tried to make up for that by
working in film and media and have published articles and
photographs. Like many a NYer, I am working on my novel. It is
going to be AWESOME.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Commuting to Stamford for my in-house counsel law job; editing my
sister's book; writing my own; planning my family's Gatsby party;
trying to utilize my building's health club to get in better shape.
I’m really good at

I have recently finalized a 13-hour playlist for a Garden party in
Cambridge. I love music but am no audiophile.
Theatre / Broadway: Yes, please, right next door, although I pretty
much only go when my folks are in town.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Putting aside either everyday things (i.e. smartphone) or ethereal
(i.e. love, family):
1. Lobsters v. Clams annual softball game
2. Temporarily omitted
3. The idea that I will actually really truly start/ finish the
4. Temporarily omitted
5. Crystal Light Ruby Red Grapefruit mix, but since I cannot find
it anymore, I guess I can indeed live without it. Ditto, Four Lokko
6. I made a painting which/that demonstrates lack of talent and
patience, but is colorful and difficult to replicate.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What song is better: "One Thing," or "I Want It That Way."
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Reading something fun and frivolous in the building's jacuzzi, then
some laps, then back to the jacuzzi and by this time my water
bottle filled with ice and alcohol is ready to drink, then cozy
entertainment at home, or the opposite.

If you live near me; if you are wicked smart in a
literary-wordsmithy type way; if you want to do laps together in my
building, or as the weather gets colder and it is cozy to be
inside, after a few dates, making egg nog or whatnot and planning
holiday parties in my building's jacuzzi spa area, which has good
jet streams for end-of-day ailments; if you like going to stuff.
