I grew up on the Peninsula and returned after 8 years in New York City. I never thought of myself as a city person growing up and I had a love/hate relationship with NYC (mostly love). It's hard to separate myself from a city and having things at my fingertips; although I do really love the idea of a quieter home with a yard to grow my own vegetable garden and have more plants/flowers.
I work in healthcare and appreciate that I get to do something meaningful everyday, but do have other interests I'd like more time to explore also.
I love to travel and would like to do more of it. I went back to India a few years ago to visit my sister who lived in Mumbai, last year I did an overly ambitious Scandinavia trip, and last week I got back from London and Italy.
My dream would be to take a year off work and travel extensively!
I like to ski and didn't get the chance while in NY, but can't believe I missed 2011 winter storms as I was still back East! Hopefully this winter will have more snow.
I’m really good at
Singing loudly when alone in my car (or with someone who doesn't
mind or sings along)
Talking about any bodily function if needed... (I'm in heathcare
The first things people usually notice about me
My smile and then my shyness in certain situations maybe, but I get
past it when I'm more comfortable.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I have a TV now again. Sigh. But I'm fairly out of the loop on new things still and trying to "catch up". I've liked such shows as Bored to Death,True Detective, Downton Abbey, Modern Family, Breaking Bad, The Simpsons, The Office, Arrested Development, Flight of the Conchords, True Blood, etc.
Music - I like a variety of music and would love someone that could introduce more. Seeing live music is always good.
Books- I love to read and I don't do enough of it (my family are voracious readers). I'm reading "Cocktail Hour Under the Tree of Forgetfulness" by Alexandra Fuller right now.
Food- I didn't eat redmeat for 15 years, but went back to it in NY. I'm always intrigued by becoming vegetarian or vegan, so I'd be interested in someone who is, but I'm just not sure I want to say "never" again. I love to have a beer and a plate of oysters.
The six things I could never do without
Family/friends, sunglasses, animals, relaxation- hopefully near an
ocean, lake, river, chapstick, good food.
On a typical Friday night I am
Either out with friends listening to live music with a beer, taking
a yoga class, dinner out or relaxing at home cooking a meal, curled
up on the couch or in bed reading, or take out and a movie.
You should message me if
You just want to say hi or know anything more. If you want to help
me re-explore San Francisco. If you want to find a partner to take
a roadtrip with or travel with or go skiing or try something new
together. Or if you just want someone to relax at home together
