My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm fit, cerebral, funny, fun-loving, intellectual, optimistic, romantic at heart. Living and working in the city after years in Westchester, and loving being back--falling in love with NYC all over again, like I did when I moved here from the Midwest in my 20s.
Now, I have to clarify something: unfortunately OKC gives me only two options, "married" and "single." I am nearly two years separated from a long marriage and just going through the final steps of divorce...and I don't make big decisions without a LOT of and to all intents and purposes, I am single. But i understand that my "status" makes some men uncomfortable, so...all is revealed! Meet me if you dare ;-)
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a magazine editor, and before that spent years as a freelance writer (lots of mag articles and two nonfiction books). Not surprisingly, I adore reading--everything from my beloved 19th-century lit to Ian Fleming novels (it's amazing how much better those movies are when you've read "Casino Royale" and "From Russia With Love"). Really enjoying getting out in the city--jazz and blues clubs, classical and opera, off-beat (and mainstream) movies, museums (MOMA's Gauguin show is fascinating!), bars & restaurants. Give me a great martini on Friday evening in a lovely venue and I'm happily unwinding. And on the other hand--staying in and binge-viewing Breaking Bad or reading is great too...
The key thing for me, right now, is that I feel younger than I am. I know there is much more adventure and wonder yet to come...and I want to be hard at it until I can't do it anymore.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Both working and playing; listening to people; being a "shrink" to friends when they need it; keeping my chin up in adversity; revealing myself.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Hard to answer this without polling people but I would guess: my smile and my openness. (and, um, my legs?) Probably talk a little bit too much but I like people who do the same--really like getting to know people on a deeper level and am not much of a "small-talk" person...the talkiness probably masks an interior shyness...
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Almost ALL kinds of food (for some reason I don't like oysters); love cooking as well as going out. OLD movies are a specialty, but open to any and all as long as they're interesting. Music (see above)--love it when it's live, partly because I grew up around musicians and like to support the dwindling opportunities for talented people to perform. Books: very long list. Always reading at least one, usually 2 or 3 of different genres and eras.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
oh lord, my mind isn't organized enough for this! Simply MY KIDS...well, and pizza (my own homemade, but also Chicago deep-dish and NYC thin-crust). And books, tons of them. And maybe Mad Men--though this Last Season isn't looking so impressive so far; I miss the 1962 days on that show. One more thing: the gym. I'm feels good! (when I'm done)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
traveling, and wishing I had more time/money to do it. someday...and i have been to some wonderful places already, including Rome, Paris, London (spent a semester there), Bolivia (amazing), Indonesia (likewise), Czech Republic, lots of Caribbean islands...Have to get to Greece someday
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
having a drink with a friend...maybe ending up at Arthur's in the Village, dancing to the one and only Sweet Georgia Brown. all cash, no cover, and a great, crazy ambiance...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
hmmm....I will have to know you better
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
you love to laugh, love irony but not necessarily sarcasm, like to explore, can sit by the fire reading one night and the next happily go out on the town, have empathy...mostly: even though it's sometimes difficult, you can communicate what you're thinking and feeling. have an off-beat dare I say slightly kinky bone or two in your body...
