I'm very high energy and love high energy in a partner. I view life as a learning experience, an adventure, a chance to make a difference, and a chance to connect with people. Ultimately, life for me isn't about things or some ancient concept of "God" of gods, it's about people and the experiences/connections you can share with them.
I see myself having crazy, intellectual, deep, goofy, and silly
conversations with my partner in crime. Lots of dancing, exploring, traveling (Been to Europe, Japan, Cuba, Liberia, Israel/West Bank, and the DR to name a few), cuddling while watching movies, hopefully even working out and watching and playing sports together, maybe even video games or the occasional Risk too.
Reading the same book together and discussing is sexy to me. I expect a lot and give a lot, and hope to find someone who can keep up with my energy and diverse interests.
Ideally, we'd share some major interests but would also push and stretch each other in new directions. And if you have a consciousness of yourself as a citizen of the world, think there's more to life than just you and your immediate circle, that's a huge plus too.
It's really hard to box me into any one personality type. I'm not simple but I do enjoy the simple as well as the complex, the high brow and low brow, the calm and the exciting moments. I might be sophisticated but if you're rude to your waiter I'll judge you on that more. A good education doesn't mean you can't be down to earth. Physical attraction is very important to me (sex is not unimportant lol) but MOST important is how we click and the ability for us to grow and challenge each other over time. Having an outstanding sense of humor and being able to laugh at yourself as well as me is very important too. I'm not an atheist, I do think there's something but that it's beyond human comprehension and that no faith has it right. Tolerance is important, and if you're moderately religious and not obsessed that's fine by me :-) If you think like me even better. I've actually read a lot about religion and philosophy in the last few years so I have this belief as someone who is very informed.
I earned a master's relatively recently and am focusing on finding a way to apply it, will likely travel a lot for my living, but for the right girl I'm ready to make things work and give it a shot. If you're cool, a good person, have diverse interests, and think you can keep up, we need to talk.
Careers are an important part of life, and I'll admire your job if it's a cool one but you should be able to talk about something else besides work. Being smart, ambitious, and successful--like most people here--isn't sufficient to make you a good person, that has a lot to do with how you treat other people and the intangibles of your personality. I feel like a lot of people use other people here, but you won't get that with me.
PS- I love my NY teams, my Jets, Knicks, Rangers (suck it Caps), Mets, St. John's and Uconn!
