I tend to see myself as a sincere, well spoken, generous, compassionate, wise, shrewd & business minded guy. I can be blunt yet tactful, intelligent, witty, funny (its natural, no cheesy jokes), trustworthy, easygoing, & above all friendly and very open minded. Honesty is something I value in myself and I also look for and appreciate in others. I am not a fake; basically what you see is what you get. I'm very fair in my dealings with others, and I live by the Golden Rule. I've got the flexibility, and diplomacy skills to get along very well with people of any age, ethnicity, professional background and so forth. In relationships I tend to be very romantic, charming, & supportive. I see myself more as a giver than a taker. I'm extremely forgiving and dislike grudge holders. Life is full of bumps, and a good relationship is based on being able to work at getting through the rough times together. . Likes: Everything natural, organic food, nutrition, cooking, dining out, mediterranean cafes/cuisine/music, Miami, spring, sci-fi, gadgets, existential conversations, the history channel. Dislikes: Everything artificial & synthetic, processed food, cigarette smoke, caffeine, fishy fish, winter, heavy drinkers, tanning salon addicts, runway models.
I was born in the former Soviet Union, and moved to the US when I was a year old. Grew up and attended school in Queens. Originally worked in the IT field, at Goldman Sachs for several years, later changed careers and became a Doctor of Pharmacy as well as a business owner. I have 2 older sisters, one niece and one nephew. For more info, feel free to ask!
I enjoy traveling for the sake of getting away and relaxing, however, if your looking for an Indiana Jones type to explore the remote jungles of Africa or the tsunami prone beaches of southeast Asia with, then I might not be your kinda guy :-).
Last but not least, for all of you who recently relocated to this crammed, overrated crap-hole and love it so much, this is how I feel about NYC at times: (coming from someone who has lived here his entire life) :-) Enjoy!
