My self-summary
I'm an old soul with newfangled habits (read: a smartphone addict who wishes they’d bring back vaudeville). I thrive on witty banter and pun wars. I'm a workaholic but charmingly so (I think). I'm a grownup looking for a grownup. I'm equally left-brained and right-brained...linearly creative, if you will.

I legitimately love to travel -- my sister lives in Belgium, I spent five weeks in Europe (and returned to Paris two months later), and "leave the country at least once a year" is the only New Year's resolution I've ever kept (over a decade now). I am equally comfortable wearing jeans at the opera or watching TV in a ball gown. I prefer bourbon to beer. I'm a recovering swing dancer and a failed ukulele student. I jump up and down like a little kid when near a roller coaster.

While I'm always looking to do things better, I'm confident in who I am. I'm also deeply considerate. (If you stand on the left on the escalator or block the subway doors, we may have words.) I'm kind, loyal and fiercely protective of the people I love. (And of strangers, too. It's my thing.)
What I’m doing with my life
When I'm not at my very-responsible-very-corporate job, I perform improv and volunteer as an improv instructor for communities who need laughter.
I’m really good at
Making you look good. (I work in communications.)

And, I can write backwards in script.
The first things people usually notice about me
My blue eyes, which most people assume are contacts. (They're not.)

Also, my tongue, which is planted firmly in my cheek. (I'm a snarky little thing.)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: This is tough, as I read voraciously but retain little. I went electronic when I realized I'd pack one suitcase for clothes and a backpack for books. (I never check luggage, even when going abroad for a month.) I'd average two books a day and leave them in hotels, airports and trash cans. Anyway, books I've enjoyed: The Time in Between, Wool, The Submission, State of Wonder, Bossypants and The Night Circus. I adore everything by Carlos Ruiz Zafon and Jasper Fforde, and I devoured the Game of Thrones series but have yet to see the show.

Movies: Memento, Roberta (Astaire/Rogers), Kissing Jessica Stein and Moulin Rouge are my old standbys. And I really loved The Muppets, both new and old. (But not the middle ones -- those were dreadful.)

Shows: Parks and Recreation, Archer, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, The Americans, Veep, The Mindy Project, and, um, Dr. Who. Broadchurch was beautiful, and it saddens me that they canceled Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell.

Music: I hate this category because it proves how terribly un-hip and non-namedroppy I am. I like singer/songwriter, 80s (I grew up in Jersey), Broadway, opera (not lying -- I actually go), rock, pop, doo-wop, jazz and bluegrass. Yes, bluegrass. As proof, here are the 10 most recently played artists/albums that my iPad chose randomly: David Wilcox, The Pajama Game, Frank Sinatra, My Chemical Romance, Adele, Jim Kweskin, Company, The Chenille Sisters, Ray Charles and Michael Buble. Please don't judge.

Food: There are five foods that I cannot resist on any given menu: duck, polenta, asparagus, pine nuts and cilantro.
The six things I could never do without
1. Good grammar
2. Electronic contact (I wasn't kidding about the smartphone addiction)
3. My passport (per said NYE resolution)
4. Wit
5. My family (by blood and by choice), particularly those under age six
6. Lists
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Which country I'd like to visit next. (Update: French countryside booked for August. All recommendations are welcome.)

The fact that I have a great kitchen but never seem to cook.

The difference between being polite and being considerate. (I have a theory.)
On a typical Friday night I am
Either performing improv or collapsed on my couch, unwinding from yet another hectic week and catching up on programs on my DVR. On any other night, I'm likely to be working, teaching improv, seeing a play or having drinks with friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
As fiercely as I love New York, I secretly fantasize about moving to the suburbs -- I long for air and stairs.
I’m looking for
  • Guys who like girls
  • Ages 34–48
  • Near me
  • Who are single
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
you:

-are kind (yet sarcastic), decent (yet suggestive) and described by others as "good people."

-enjoy having quirky interests, because the rest of your life is so grounded.

-are politically liberal, well educated and funny.

-consider verbal jousting foreplay.

-don't understand the point of being deceptive or mean.

-will traipse around the world with me yet be happy reading the paper together on a lazy Sunday morning.

-are ambitious, have a career and aren't embarrassed to admit it. (I'll show you mine if you show me yours.)

-can sing a showtune without questioning your masculinity.

-know who Tom Lehrer and Garrison Keillor are.

-intuitively understand that I'm more genuine and kindhearted than these flippant answers imply.
