My friends would describe me as tall, leggy, outgoing and attractive. Ice dancing, yoga, and tennis have always helped keep me in shape and energized. In the past few years I have discovered the joys of running and road cycling. I love the experience of good food and interesting conversation, whether over a home-cooked meal surrounded by friends and family or out at a neighborhood place for the evening.
I have lived in and around NYC most of my life, have a good sense of what the city has to offer and am definitely interested in trying new places and experiences. My field is community development and I started a new job in the last year, finding that change, while challenging, is a good thing. While my work is important and fulfilling, there is so much more to life than work. I love to go out to cultural performances - plays, films, dance, concerts etc. I am also interested in politics, not local and national, with a left leaning orientations - Tea Partiers keep looking.
I enjoy travel, whether for work or play. I have been to Cuba, Quebec, Miami, New Orleans and the left coast recently and am looking forward to more travel adventures in the future. i want to see more of this fascinating and complicated world we live in and would love to have a partner in crime to share it with.
My son is a junior in college. It has been my pride and joy to watch him develop into a smart, engaged, accomplished and thoughtful young man. His father and I are divorced and maintain a friendly and healthy relationship.
I really enjoy sharing a bottle of wine in my roof garden and whatever comes afterwards, a walk around the Reservoir, an intriguing museum exhibit, athletic activities (see above), performances, especially theater, a good steak or sushi dinner, the Berkshires and Hudson Valley, particularly for fall foliage or traveling to somewhere you might suggest.
What I’m doing with my life
Getting my arms around my new job, enjoying seasonal and year round sports, taking in the world around me, enjoying the arts, family, friends, good food, trying to learn something new (however small) every day.
I’m really good at
Connecting with people, whether strangers on the train or friends of long standing. Also, hosting in my home - people are always happy and relaxed. Enjoying my surroundings too and whoever, I am with, whether city or country or wherever.
The first things people usually notice about me
My smile and my openness to meeting people.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Recent theater I really enjoyed include Ugly Lies the Bone, Steve, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night, and King Charles III. I really want to see Hamilton (do you have tix?) and Fiddler. I like a mix of film - Star Wars and Bridge of Spies, Brooklyn, Spotlight, Woman in Gold are recent good ones. I don't read as much as I would like but recent favorites include All the Light We Cannot See and Palace Walk.
Food, hmm, I like good fresh food with wine to accompany, my vodka dirty, and a variety of styles - Indian, Spanish, Greek, Fish, Steak or a good burger, and perhaps something you suggest.
The six things I could never do without
Good fresh ground fresh brewed coffee
My friends and family
My college junior son
The energy of the city
The joy of the country
Physical activity (running, cycling, tennis, ice dancing,...)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Staying focused on each day as it comes.
Having good food in my place.
Plays and movies I want to see.
Why and how the world is so complicated.
Will I meet my next partner online or in an entirely random way (got some thoughts about that?)
On a typical Friday night I am
Hosting friends and family for dinner or dining out with a friend (you?)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
hmmm. Private is private. That will wait until we meet and get to
know each other a bit. Likely you will be happy.
You should message me if
You are interested in meeting a tall, leggy, outgoing, attractive woman and want a serious monogamous relationship.
