Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Because I’m upfront and honest, you should know that I just turned
54. I'm grateful for the wisdom, but not so much for the actual
number. Ha! I realize those are just words, but I changed my age
for search purposes. Besides, I don't look anywhere near my age in
person (I can back this up, so you won't be disappointed) and I’m a
late bloomer with a very young spirit.
My field is dominated by people much younger, so I feel fortunate
to be seen as a peer and a mentor. I'm a TV producer (with a focus
on comedy) and I added talent management to my company a year ago.
I like to tap into my spontaneous, goofy side and keep things fun.
After all, laughter is a key ingredient to a relationship, among
many other things!
I think all this factors into why I relate best to people in my
preferred age range. I'm rather easy going with a calm presence and
have tremendous patience. I've always been that way, perhaps due in
part of my artistic side. And as I've gotten older, I have learned
to practice (not perfect though) the art of "simply living in the
moment." Perhaps that's why many people (both sexes) have told me
that I'm quite different than other women and admire my emotional
strength (I get reminded of this from time to time and it's so
greatly appreciated). I like to think I'm a source of comfort to my
family and friends, who seek advice from me. When I do need to lean
on someone, I found myself attracted to those I respect and
I feel fortunate that dating and sex come easily, but having a
deeper connection brings more value and joy. Of course, that takes
time and I'm not in a hurry. It's about enjoying the journey with
someone you care about.
In 2005, I had my most life altering moment to date - I became a
kidney donor for my best friend and then had the unique opportunity
to share our story on Oprah. If I could do it again, I would do it
I'm often asked why I'm still single and my response is: "Have you
ever lived in Los Angeles?" I basically gave up my dating life in
my late 20s-40s for my career. No regrets - can't really dwell on
the past. And I "grew up" there. The lack of dating in LA was a big
factor in moving back east. I'm not the type to just settle. Who
**IMPORTANT NOTE: If you even read this far, thanks and please live
in or around Manhattan. There are plenty of people here, so there's
no need to pursue long distance relationships. Also please respect
my preferred age range (shout out to the 20 and 30 somethings -
zero interest, not ever happening).
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I love what I do for a living and that includes research: going to
comedy shows, watching TV and films, working with writers,
developing talent/ideas and creating opportunities. Among my
favorite things: I'm an avid self taught, fearless knitter (I'm not
afraid to make mistakes, rip them out and start over), reading,
working out, cooking/baking (healthy stuff or converting recipes
into healthy versions), walking around and exploring all the city
has to offer with friends or on my own.
