Born gregarious, and in NYC, to unconventional Greek folks, I'm a hearty mix of sweet 'n spicy, classy 'n sassy. I'm often told I have a way of making sheer strangers immediately feel like friends, as though we've known each other for years. People are my passion, and I never fake it. I'm genuinely curious, playful, polite, but not prissy. Nor, despite the prevalent pink of my pics here, a girly girl. I thrive on witty, lighthearted banter, and, yes, if you throw a wisecrack in my direction, I promise to throw one right back! You're very welcome. =)~
A social butterfly, I'll go wherever the fun seems to be, and take every seemingly good opportunity that comes my way. Recently, at a buddy's annual musical birthday bash in Brooklyn, with upwards of fifty friends and several family members in attendance, his mother, a teacher, suggested we create nametags for everyone there. I smilingly agreed, and throughout the day-into-night celebration, introduced myself to every new face I encountered, asking, "So [insert name], how would you like to be remembered?" I found myself chatting and laughing with practically each one, from a Jersey girl who, immediately upon introducing me to her friend, hilariously (and seriously) suggested, "You two should start dating," to guys who told me to write, "Tonight, you can call me 'Wolf,'" to (super funny) "Satan," to "Satan's wingman," and I made nice with all to the point where, as I'm writing this, my throat is aching and I have no voice. It was a great party, and yet again made me think, if I were paid to chat up people like this on a daily basis, I'd be a gazillionaire!
Must admit, the folks raised me well. When I was little, my dad had advised, "As long as you're not hurting yourself or anyone else, follow your heart. And respect everyone." I live by those words, and greatly value sincerity, humor, open-mindedness, optimism, smart self-expression, time-tested friendships, family, new experiences.
And, above all, I live by my heart and gut, not by the rule books.
On to why I'm here...
Though I'm not looking to rush anything, I'm keepin' my eye out for guys with good vibes, good values, and looks to match: the ultimate trifecta as I see it. I'm drawn to strong, confident characters, those with joie de vivre, who appreciate the simple pleasures, who try to make the most of who they are. Physically, I'm primarily attracted to tallish, fit men, of European, Aussie, or mixed descent, with or without the accent. Soft spot for multilingual charmers, fellow music addicts, great hair I can run my hands through, honey-sweet smiles.
If you have most to all of that covered, I'll probably want to make out with you. =)
