My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hi there.
Nothing makes me happier than bringing people together and cooking for them. An ideal night for me is a dinner party with conversation covering every topic out there-from current affairs to politics to sex. And of course with tons of great food and unlimited wine.

I'm bubbly, outgoing and a people person. I love talking with people and learning about them. (should have been a journalist?) I'm sincere and not much for superficiality or phoniness. I think you could say I have depth and am genuine. What you see is what you get.
Oh and I am chatty and lively and easygoing.
Always had a strong interest in other cultures and was lucky enough to spend all my summers growing up in Greece (despite not being Greek) so could be because I've always been around so many different kinds of people.
Aside from food (which I am pretty into --cooking it, baking it, reading about it, trying every new restaurant out there or at least aspiring to.) I love culture-human right documentaries, art openings, readings..all the stuff that NYC has so much of, but which would be so much better with a partner.
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.
Making people feel comfortable, bringing people together and telling funny stories.They do involve a lot of tangents but apparently they are entertaining.
Oh and throwing great dinner parties with fancy recipes that take hours to make.
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: Philip Roth's Nemesis, Blink by Malcolm Gladwell, The Sweet Life in Paris by David Leibowitz, Peace Meals by Anna Badhken, War by Sebastian Junger. Long Story Bit by Bit by Tim Hetherington. "The Sense of an Ending by Julian Barnes."
Some all-time favorite authors are: Graham Greene, Evelyn Waugh, F Scott Fitzgerald, Philip Roth, Raymond Carver, James Joyce, Richard Wright, Lawrence Durrell, Mahfouz.

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, 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 heen 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.")
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:
Espresso
Smelly French and Italian Cheeses
Wine and a good Negroni cocktail. Oh make that all Campari-based drinks!
Sea Urchin
Sleeping in
Laughter
Good Friends
Passion, sensuality and affection.
Passport
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 and you laugh easily and have a good sense of humor. You don't take things overly seriously, you are openminded, emotionally mature--ie, you can really talk about things. You're probably interested in what's happening in the world, social issues and politics. Most of all, you think of others and you're a grown up.

Or you like something I've expressed here and you're willing to take a chance because you realize it's pretty hard to really "get" what a person is about from these two paragraphs.

I really don't meet people in my daily life these days so I figure online dating is a good way to maybe make new buddies and if I am lucky, something more.
