I prefer dinner or drinks with close friends or seeing a live band at a low key bar over a night out partying. It pains me to admit that I've stayed home rather than go to house parties far too many times in the last couple years. I don't know if it's an age thing, but I'm finding it harder to be all that socially outgoing (especially if trekking to Brooklyn in the cold is involved). I know this lifestyle is really working against me as far as the dating scene is concerned, but what can I do, it's just not me.
I grew up with the arts in my life so it's pretty important to me to be involved in artistic cultural activities like going to museums, art galleries, plays, operas, or concerts. I'm not at all pretentious about these things, I just see their value and appreciate including them in my life. That being said, I also appreciate and enjoy doing seemingly nothing; wandering around and exploring the neighborhoods of New York, or just being lazy at home with a movie or TV and some booze. I get pretty excited when planning my time around cooking (whether or not there's a dinner party involved). Whenever I can pull myself away from the city for outdoorsy adventure, I can be found hiking, fishing, or snowboarding to name a few favorites.
A few random things that make me happy include smart design, good all-you-can-eat sushi, goofy pets, asian babies, zombie movies, and witnessing classic New York moments while people watching (not necessarily in that order or in combination).
I would describe my sense of humor as dry and sarcastic with a side of self-deprecating awkwardness.
