Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hm. Former ballet dancer (now a lawyer - long story...who knows
what might be next...). I realize now that whatever else I do with
my life, I will always identify first as a dancer. It took me a
while to come to that realization but now I'm good with it since
it's not about what you do but how you see the world. And, that I'm
a true Taurus - physical, sensitive, sensual, tuned in to touch,
visual beauty and taste, but sometimes still a bull in a china shop
- kind of a klutz when left to my own devices!
Spent my first life travelling the world, settled in NY ages ago,
but still love to travel. Usually to where my friends are but there
are so many places still to see... I'm learning every day that the
transition is endless and ongoing, and not always welcome, but
usually results in some kind of unexpected magic.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
You know, the usual - enjoying my friends when life in NY doesn't
get in the way, becoming more appreciative of my family, looking
forward to new experiences, accomplishments, challenges, travel,
friendships. Just trying to make sense of it all.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Listening, cooking, dancing, being there for my friends in a crisis
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Legs. That is if I'm wearing a skirt. And eyes. Apparently not a
normal color - but it must be something like tickling yourself - I
can't really see it.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Historical non-fiction, biographies, human stories, all movies
except horror, tango, blues, rock, food of all kinds (can't think
of any I don't like - well maybe not monkey brains), Belgian beer,
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Never? Well, never say never, but I kind of like my family,
friends, New York, travel, books, tango, hope.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Sliding doors....how every single decision we make has the
potential for changing everything. That may sound weird, but I've
accidentally run into people I know in this enormous city so many
times in unexpected places, and it strikes me how if one of us had
stopped to do anything else at any other moment that day, that
meeting wouldn't have happened....is life that random? Or is meant
to be that way?
Was that first true love ever possible to find again with someone
else? Is it possible find that complete, passionate
And recently I've thought a lot about how things take time, and how
it's possible to re-imagine your life if you are with the person
who opens your eyes and heart to a new idea of what life could be
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Out dancing or relaxing with friends or watching a movie or falling
asleep and missing all of the above. Oh well.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
That I pretend to know what I'm looking for, but really - you only
know when you know. And, I'm a reluctant romantic...just can't help
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
If you think we might be able to carry on a conversation, one that
includes something about you and not just today's news. Then again,
not only about you without some knowledge of what's going on in the
world....I just realized there are two sides to that equation. If
you're funny and smart and make me fall off my chair laughing, even
better. If you don't have a sense of humor, I can't take you
seriously. And if there is chemistry, I won't say the rest goes out
the window, but you might distract me from the fact that you're not
so funny. Then we'll see what happens.
(Apparently it's time for me to make a comment here - as nice as it
is that I get lots of messages from all kinds of people, I'm just
not looking for a hookup, tonight or any night. If that's what
you're looking for, I am certain you will find it somewhere on this
site, or somewhere else, but not with me!)
Who are you looking for?
