"They are ill discoverers that think there is no land, when they can see nothing but sea. - Francis Bacon, (1561-1626)
I don’t care so much about your age, but please be within hailing distance of 63. I will compliment you on how sexy you look in your little black dress while secretly believing that you look much hotter in those jeans.
We'll talk about your grandchildren, and hopefully I'll get a chance to love them like my own. I’ll listen as you tell me how proud you are of your kids and how accomplished they are. I’ll talk about mine
Understand that NYC is in my lifeblood; I am a NYC tour guide and own a touring business. It is something I love and am committed too. It is my passion. A flaneur by trade and inclination. A walk with me through the city or over Brooklyn Bridge can be special, oh yes, do wear sensible shoes.
I've preselected the epitaph for my urn:
"But, ah! Manhattan's sights and sounds, her smells her crowds, her throbbing force, the thrill that comes from being of her a part, her subtle spells, her slums¬ Oh God! The stark unutterable pity, to be dead, and never again behold my city!"- James Weldon Johnson
I would love it if you dwelled on the Island but will tolerate a close Brooklynite. I do not want to be separated from my love by great rivers. Sandy changed my perception of distance; it changed my perception of everything. I don’t think the idea of a bug out kit is so crazy after all.
I HAVE TWO CATS, I write it in caps because it is a deal breaker, if you are allergic or hate them, it won’t work! I know they’ve gotten some bad press lately, but it’s not their fault. If you are indifferent to them, that’s fine, loving my pet is not a requirement. But being an animal person, I will love your dogs, cats, turtles, birds, etc. but will never trust your snake.
As a word of caution, if you’ve stated in your profile that you are looking for someone with “no baggage” I am not he. I mean wtf.
I must eschew the beach during the day, but will delight in sharing a chair in the evening while pressed naughtily against you. We'll listen to the surf roll in, under the infinitely starry dome.
And if hanging out by the fire is your thing, I can provide that, but we'll have to drive upstate to avail ourselves of that amenity. Looking forward to that moment, as I am a fireside virgin.
There are many other things I love and enjoy, and it would be a pleasure to discuss them over a drink in the back of a quiet bar of your choosing.
Eventually, I know - we will find each other.
