My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Most of all incredibly kind and empathetic and looking for the same. Intelligence is sexy but you're smart or you're not. Being kind is a choice.
I am good mixture of brainy and fun I am told. Educated, cultured and love intellectualism but also having one-too-many cocktails and fun too.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I taught small kids (4-5 year olds.) for the last 6 years. I 'm attempting to make a career change to something food- related. I've been teaching cooking to kids which is really fun.

non-work--thinking, going to new restaurant, drinking a new wine, connecting with friends. Reading a new book-right now, "The End of the Affair" by Graham Greene.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Having fun.
Cooking and baking an elaborate dinner for you. Cuisine of your choice :)
Making people feel comfortable, bringing people together and telling funny stories.They do involve a lot of tangents but apparently they are entertaining.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Will you tell me if we meet? Probably cliche, but I smile easily...I usually have a big smile on my face so I am guessing that would be it. I am probably one of the few people who even after years in NYC will catch myself smiling at someone on the street..
Oh and I am chatty...
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: I love to read and have too many favorites , but here are a few recent ones: Philp Roth's "Plot against America" Graham Greene's "The End of the Affair." Julian Barnes's "The Sense of an Ending."
Colm Toibin
Jeanette Winterson etc

Music: Ramones, Clash, Gossip, Serge Gainsbourg, Patti Smith, Yeah, Yeah, Yeahs, Radiohead, Lucinda Williams, Galactic, Cocorosie, Antony and the Johnsons, Gilberto, World Music
Bossa Nova, Tribe called Quest, Black Sheep etc.

Food-um, all of it (except for fast food). Ok, despite loathing the word 'foodie" I admit to being one -- I love reading about food, consuming it, cooking, baking, learning about it, etc. It's definitely high on my list of passions. Favorites: Italian, Japanese and Mediterranean. I have been cooking lots of Turkish food recently but Italian and French desserts are my speciality.

Movies - I watch a lot of them. I tend to gravitate towards independent and foreign films..Agnes Varda. Recently loved "A Separation" and La Grande Belezza (The Great Beauty.") Love any social issue documentaries.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I'd like to think I could do without many "things" but some things that make life pleasurable are:
Smelly French and Italian Cheeses
Wine and a good Negroni cocktail. Oh make that all Campari-based drinks!
Sea Urchin
Sleeping in
Good Friends
Passion, sensuality and affection.
The Ocean and the Beach.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Ok. How deep or honest do I want to get here?
The future,,,what gives life meaning and purpose,?
human behavior-what motivates people to act in the ways they do?
The messed up state of the world-poverty, injustice, social justice issues.
Wow, this makes me sound really heavy which I am not. :) I also think about plenty of inconsequential stuff, too, like what I want to bake and why the perfect lip gloss color is so elusive.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Hmm. Typical? Um, seeing some live music, drinking downtown with friends, cooking, art opening, etc. Or exhausted and reading or watching a Netflix film. Honestly, like many, feel like Friday is amateur night. Prefer to catch a drink during the week..Love Death and Co, Bowery Hotel bar, Amor y Amargo to name a few.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Admit? After a few drinks, I'll "admit" anything..Not a good liar,
that's for sure...
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You are kind and thoughtful. You don't play games and you want a real connection, be it friendship and hopefully more.
