I'm down-to-earth, genuine, good-natured, and easy to talk to. I try to make people comfortable when they're around me. I come from a family with a lot of love and good values. I'm easy going and I'm not into drama.
Although I love living in the city, I also love the hiking trips I take every year where I can escape the noise and congestion. I've been to over 20 National Parks and have seen some breathtaking scenery. I went up to Ithaca this fall when it was peak foliage, which was beautiful! Another thing I love is taking pictures.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a Training Manager at a hospital. The next question most people have is "Who are you training?" Let's see if you can guess.
A) Financial Service Representatives
B) Physician Referral Specialists
C) Research Study Assistants
I’m really good at
listening when someone needs me, being curious about people before judging them, doing my own nails.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm not entirely sure, but if I shake hands with a guy for the first time, he usually tells me I have a firm handshake.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: I recently read The Lost Wife, which I absolutely loved. Any other good recommendations??
Movies: Love Actually, Romeo and Juliet, Titanic, The Princess Bride, Slumdog Millionaire, Coming to America, The Wizard of Oz.
Shows: Well I watch the Today Show every morning. Does that count? I also try to catch some episodes of Dancing With The Stars, Project Runway, So You Think You Can Dance, and Intervention. And lately I've been watching Chopped.
Music: I listen to Pandora sometimes while I'm at work. Mostly top 40 pop, but sometimes late 60's/70's, 80's, Show Tunes/Soundtracks (keeps me entertained), and Classical (when I need to focus).
Food: I can't seem to turn down a bagel with cream cheese, lox, tomato, and onion. I also love salt and vinegar potato chips, eggplant parm, mac & cheese, sesame chicken, and pad Thai. I get excited when I notice sweet potato fries on a menu, and I almost always replace regular fries with those instead. You might be surprised at the only 3 things I don't eat, which are Mexican food, sushi, and cheesecake. Those tend to be most people's favorites, go figure!
The six things I could never do without
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The fact that there are a ton of opportunities every day to meet people in this city, yet for some reason most people just wait until they're at a bar or on a dating site to try and talk to someone.
On a typical Friday night I am
either relaxing at home or hanging out with my friends at a restaurant or someone's apartment. I've got a great group of friends from high school, college, and beyond who mix really well with each other so it's always fun when we get together.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I sleep with stuffed animals.
You should message me if
you are looking for a serious relationship, and you are genuine, caring, honest, and funny. I'd also prefer if you're Jewish :)
