My self-summary
I know The first sentence is important, but I can't think of a good one right now. So here's me in random order:
- I am funny. I just realized this a few years ago.
- I am optimistic and happy by nature, active and upbeat.
- I like trying new things (food, destinations, activities) as long as I can take a shower and don't have to pee in the woods.
- I prefer to read things that are properly punctuated.
- I think silver hair and bald head are sexy.
- I'm not very "easygoing", whatever that means.
- I sometimes get paged in the middle of the night. It's rare, but it happens.
- I don't believe in anything supernatural. This includes the concept of "soul mate". I think a good relationship needs work and doesn't happen magically. Nor can it be maintained magically. Kind of like six pack abs.
-I'm a New Yorker by choice. Came to the city for a 2-month course, and 2 weeks into it decided I'll never leave. That was 8 years ago. Lived in Toronto for a few years before that, and will give extra points if you can guess my original hometown.
What I’m doing with my life
Working (and really loving it), traveling, cooking, skiing, swimming, socializing with friends and giving hope.
I’m really good at
Planning vacations.
Swimming.
Backgammon.
My job.
Defying stereotypes.
The first things people usually notice about me
I smile a lot. Seems like I can't help it.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Anything by Gabriel García Márquez, Alba de Céspedes, Romain Rolland. I read many of the classics as a teenager, Hamlet (and had a crush on him for a while), Iliad and Odyssey and so on, and somehow managed to do this while listening to Madonna and Wham.

TV shows that I'm obsessed with: Newsroom and Game of Thrones. TV shows that I watch, but not obsessively: House of Cards and Homeland. And Frasier on Netflix.

Music? On a U2 binge. Before that on a Coldplay binge, and before that on a Preservation Hall Jazz Band binge. And Pink Floyd.

Food? I'm a great cook. The best cook. Feeding people is my hobby. I'm quite adventurous when it comes to trying new dishes and unfamiliar cuisines and will eat anything out of a food truck, excepts for insects.
The six things I could never do without
Fairness (is that a "thing"?)
Water, for drinking and swimming.
Coffee, yogurt and Italian bread.
My big, noisy family (don't worry, none of them live with me).
A clean, uncluttered place to live in.
I can do without, but really enjoy Sunday afternoon naps.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Others.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I sometimes sing in the car.
You should message me if
I'm looking for that elusive man who is brainy but also a little edgy, is kind and responsible but also has a bad boy streak. A scientist with a tattoo sort of person...

I only read messages from profiles that have pictures. Unless you work for CIA or MI6, in which case you should fax a copy of your ID. Also, while I'm flattered by messages from Wisconsin and Florida, I really looking for someone local and not a long distance relationship :-)

P.S. If "Middle-eastern" sounds scary to you rather than exotic, maybe you wanna sit this one out :o)
