Okay -- here we go...
I look at this profile as just a jumping off point since it's impossible to "know" a person with just a few words. So here it goes.
--I've lived in NYC longer than in my home town, which makes me a non-native native New Yorker.
-- I have a very dry sense of humor.
-- I have a voracious appetite for learning new things and discussing everything and anything.
-- I find it impossible to lie, which is often not a good thing.
-- I am tremendously loyal to my friends.
-- Watching the sea lions and big cats at the Bronx Zoo makes me happy.
-- I could stay in the water all day. Does this make me part fish?
-- I get really excited when I get a high word score in Scrabble..
-- When I see people litter I want to push them into traffic.
-- I have a great poker face, but don't know how to play poker. I want to learn. Want to teach me? But I will tell you now -- once I learn, I give no mercy.
-- I once won a pair of handcuffs playing Skee-Ball in California, but airport security wouldn't let me take them on the plane. I wonder if the security guard kept them.
-- I work out (gym and lap swimming) but I don't particularly enjoy it (though I like the meditative quality of swimming)
Though I've lived in NYC my entire adult life, I have never walked across the Brooklyn Bridge, been to the Statue of Liberty, or been to Ellis Island. None of these are going anywhere, right?
Here are a few things that keep me sane -- movies in a theater (not on TV), Stephen Colbert, Bill Maher, Central Park, MSNBC, pie from Four & Twenty Blackbirds, a long subway ride when I'm reading a good book, the beach (and the sound of water), and the Mets when they actually win (hope springs eternal!)
I love to travel-- just get on a plane and go - the more exotic, the better, or getting in a car for a road trip. I've been to China, Vietnam, Bali, and many European countries. There are still plenty of places in the US I haven't seen. I'm very spontaneous.
I'm looking for someone who wants to get out and try all types of things, but is also cool with just hanging out, reading a book and just being. We can be together in the same room having an intense conversation, but can also not say anything without feeling the need to fill the air.
If you are religious (or say you are serious about Christianity) and make a point in your profile of saying you are "God fearing" (a term I will never understand) WE WILL NOT GET ALONG. DO NOT CONTACT ME. SERIOUSLY.
I am confident, spontaneous, intuitive, creative, and calm.
