Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
About me: I love to laugh - especially with people I love. And you?
I'm warm, funny, smart, curious and independent. Very loyal - I
have friends from elementary school and others picked up at various
stops along the way. I love good books, good music, good
conversation, and good friends. Oh yes, and good food. I love to
travel, hiking, the arts.
About you: Thoughtful (as in both considerate and filled with
thoughts.) Open, adventurous, self-assured. Comfortable with
yourself and your life and interested in sharing both. You treasure
the challenges and rewards of a good relationship. You have
something to say - and the ability to say it. In short, brains,
heart, sense of humor, integrity.
I've had different careers in different cities and countries, but
some time ago returned home to NYC. There's nothing like it. My
work is important to me. Balancing work and the rest of my life is
even more important.
Good friends, good times, good conversations - all contribute to a
pretty rewarding life. I enjoy my own company, but am ready to
share my life and my space with someone else. I am a single mom to
a wonderful boy and I enjoy (almost) every thrilling, exhausting
moment. Motherhood has been my happiest adventure and my greatest
achievement. Maintaining close friendships is one of my skills (and
passions), but I have yet to find that special someone with whom to
share my life.
I believe that trust and laughter are key to any relationship. And,
no matter how busy we are, or how many responsibilities we have,
there is always room for a new adventure. Want to share mine?
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Living it, of course! Working, playing, thinking, laughing,
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: too many to count: Gilead, Cutting for Stone, Saturday,
anything by Joan Didion, Michael Lewis, The Guernsey Literary and
Potato Peel Pie Society, Brideshead Revisited
Movies: The Wizard of Oz (really!); Casablanca; Gone with the Wind;
others more recent
Music: Too much to name - classical, jazz, rock, folk, world music,
Food: Wide ethnic range (Thai, Korean, Japanese, Indian, Italian,
Ethiopian, Middle Eastern). Won't - under any circumstances - eat
canned peaches. Otherwise, I'm easy.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. My son (not a thing, I know, but he's #1 on my list!)
2. My circle of friends and family, i.e. my village
3. Books, books and more books
5. Laughter (especially with #1 and #2)
OK, so I went for 7.
(Not necessarily in that order!)
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Having dinner at home with my son, sometimes with friends and
family joining us.
