Anyway, since it seems to be the way to meet people these days, so...I've been in NYC for most of my adult life and while I have managed to surround myself with an amazing group of friends, still haven’t met “that guy” (and I’d rather be single than be involved with someone just for something to do). I'd like to meet someone special and have a relationship based what I think are the essentials: trust, kindness, chemistry and respect . That said, I also think it’s important to want to take your clothes off when you see someone.
A bit about me: I am fun, funny, kind, smart, successful and driven enough to love what I do but not be obsessed with it. I'm a good listener and a great audience (I love to laugh and I do it out loud and often). I try not to take myself too seriously, but at the same time I am reliable and, where a situation calls for a grown-up, I can be very no-nonsense. I can come off as a little aloof (really it’s because I'm a little shy) or alternatively "tough" (keep in mind I am a woman in a man's world professionally (I'm a maritime lawyer) so it comes with the territory), but at heart I am very compassionate and generous (both emotionally and otherwise). I think if you asked my friends, they would say the same and then some.
I love cooking, eating and a good cocktail (or more than one). I am a gym junkie. I am always "in the middle of a book". If I start one I have to finish - even if I hate it. I can get ready to go out in 15 minutes and look cute (I can get ready and look hot in 37 minutes). My dog and I come as a package deal (thought, frankly, she's much cooler than I am. I've learned a lot from her, actually. But that's a story for another time).
I love learning about people and learning about life. In other words, I like myself and I like my life…..and it would be great to have a partner in crime who likes himself and his life too.
A disclaimer: I'm somewhere between "curvy" and "athletic" so I picked athletic but I've def. got some lady-curves.
I am also a dedicated crossfitter. I wish I could get paid to do it but I'm not that good. I can talk about things other than crossfit but if you're a crossfit hater and can;t keep it to yourself we might have an issue.
Movies: I don't like going to the movies. I know, weird, but I don't.
TV: Law & Order (the original), CSI, The Killing, basically any cop/law show. I suffer through life without HBO
Music: everything except "unstructured" Jazz and Rush
Food: Here's what I don't like: broccoli rabe and kale. Everything else is fair game
-emotionally available and are ready for a relationship (that doesn't mean jumping into a relationship with ME. Come on, we barely know each other, but please be in a place where you want to be involved with someone special and not playing the field forever)
-have a slightly wicked sense of humor
-single (I'm not looking to have an affair or "friends with benefits". If that's what I wanted, I wouldn't be on OKC, I'd be out getting laid)
-age appropriate (meaning you are not old enough to be my dad and I'm not old enough to be your mom)
-confident and comfortable in your own skin
-have a "glass half-full" outlook on life (no Debbie Downers, please)
-cares about being healthy and fit
*******if you are 25 years old or thereabouts please don't message me to say "hi". Honestly!!
