On a 1-10 scale of happiness, I’m a 9 and a relationship with the right guy would put me over the top. I’m petite, but don’t lack curves. I laugh as easily as I make others laugh. I love easily and love being loved. I’m affectionate but not clingy. I’m smart without being intellectual. I’m mature without being dull. I’m cosmopolitan (e.g., lived abroad) without being pretentious. I enjoy parties but I’m happiest having lunch in a park with the sun on my face. I’m a mix of spontaneity and planning and I'll always try something new.
I love to cook and also enjoy cocktails and wine (ask about Garagiste). I’m good with money, but know when to splurge. I believe in manners—people treating each other well. I’m an extrovert and love to socialize. I’m a Democrat but don’t impose my beliefs on others and I’m not interested in anyone imposing their beliefs on me. I’m Jewish, but not really religious. I’m childless, but haven’t ruled out having children.
I’m a voracious reader, I love podcasts and live music. I love getting outside, whether it’s in town our out of town, being under the sky and in the sun makes me happiest. You might see me zipping around town on my bike—I have a basket on back that makes running errands a breeze.
In short, I’m not judgmental, critical, or cynical—I live life with a smile on my face.
