You’re not a cubicle girl (even if you happen to work in one, you don’t let it define who you are) and you’re not looking for a cubicle guy (I used to be surrounded by them).
You’re not crazy. (You know this line needed to be its own paragraph).
When you ask “what do you do?” it’s to make conversation and not to check off another box as you seek middle-class comforts from a guy. And you also have an answer for my follow-up to that question, “what charities or non-profits do you support or work with?”
Originally from Long Island and lived in NYC for the past 7 years, I am realistic while being optimistic and having seen a lot, I’m confident and not easily rattled which is why the humorous comments fly.
I am often able to provide new insights into what’s happening very soon after watching or listening intently.
And after hanging out with me, you will find a new way of seeing the world.
