Back to me. I am charming, opinionated, ambitious, and can cook like a dream. Indeed, the kitchen is where I work through bursts of both anxiety (baking) and creativity (cooking). I have great stories, and know how to tell them. I love New England (home for boarding school and college), and feel happiest near water. While I'm a fully functioning city dweller, and have a near encyclopedic knowledge of restaurants in this city, I admit that I occasionally need to escape and turn off all the devices and read books with pages not screens. And if it goes too long between such escapes, I get progressively less awesome.
I love keeping lists, grocery stores, hotel sex, picking paint colors, and conversations about important things. I hate the sound of someone cutting their fingernails, indecision, humidity, transferring from the 1 to the L. Actually, scratch that. I hate taking any train except for the 1/2/3/a/b/c/d.
As crass as this is, my first guess is that people (men?) generally notice my rack first.
I'm bad a movies. I need to get better. I enjoy them, I do, I just didn't grow up in a movie house (we stuck to musicals and cartoons for a long time) and have embarrassing gaps in movie knowledge. Help me?
I love Girls, West Wing (the Newsroom is a medium substitute), the Wire, New Girl, Barefoot Contessa. And many more. I'm good at TV.
Music: lots. I can always listen to country, Florence & the Machine, the pas de deux from the Nutcracker, and Cole Porter anything.
I work, loosely speaking, in the food world. Food is both a pleasure and my profession. However, I'm a surprisingly, well, not picky, but particular. I have a lot of things I don't like, but if asked, I forget what all of them are. I'm allergic to liver and mango, and I think truffles (of the pig digging variety) are not awesome. I am alone in this.
Oh, you want to go to New Orleans/Nashville/Savannah/Charleston for a weekend? I'm in.
and you appreciate a good staycation. hello, hotel rooms.
ultimately, all I want is someone kind, brilliant, and in possession of a high sex drive who has ambition, and goals, and one day wants an excellent family. apparently, that's a lot to ask. I would love to be proved wrong.
SIDENOTE: I couldn't be less interested in being your mistress. so if you're married and bored, please keep on clicking. and while I fully respect all kinds of relationships (love is love) I'm not interested in joining your already existing relationship, for either the night or the duration.
