I've heard that the three legged stool of life is comprised of your
job, your home and your relationship. I have a great job and I love
coming home to my place in Riverdale (NYC's well-kept secret). It's
a healthy relationship that will keep me from tipping over. I spent
most of my adult life in Europe as a mother of two, wife (of one)
and a teacher of English as a second language. I returned to my
native New York almost 10 years ago and now work in a community
center as an HR manager and grants administrator. I have great
friends and have even found a wonderful, new and fulfilling hobby
in community theater. I'm looking for someone who is not afraid to
share. Someone with whom I can share the ups and the downs of life.
And who can help turn the downs into ups.
What I’m doing with my life
My job keeps me busy and I consider it my second home. It's a place
where people come to have fun and enrich their lives. My life is
enriched just from being a part of it. When I'm not working, I'm
spending time with friends and family even if it means traveling
longer distances to do so. And when I'm alone, I'm never bored.
I’m really good at
.....keeping my life simple. Although I can leave dishes in the
sink, I can't go for a long time with too much clutter. And I enjoy
helping others simplify and unclutter their lives. But only when
I'm good at making people feel comfortable. And I'm REALLY good at
keeping secrets. The better I keep them, the more I'm told.
The first things people usually notice about me
....is my curly hair.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: novels that tell me something about a certain culture, way
of life or era. Movies: Pretty much anything but action movies or
movies that have no message. Shows: musicals and straight theater
in any venue from a 7th floor Manhattan black box to Broadway.
Music: All types as long as it's "good" - especially new and old
show music. And I have to admit I just love hearing oldies from the
50's to the 80's. Food: everything - there's little I don't like.
The six things I could never do without
2. Contact with my kids
3. Good friends
4. A job that gives me a purpose
5. Quality laughing
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Perhaps too much time thinking about how to prepare for a quality
retirement. Otherwise I try to stay in the moment...
On a typical Friday night I am
Either out with friends for dinner or recovering at home from a
busy week watching a great TV series on Netflix.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Just ask, I might just answer.
You should message me if
...you are ready to take a chance on a sharing relationship that
might turn into something more
....you want to laugh with someone from the heart
...you like and respect yourself.
