So here are a few things about me...I've been in NYC for 12 years. I'm originally from the Boston area, although I spent about a year living in LA for work before moving here. I typically spend my days off with family or good friends, enjoying a nice meal (have to appreciate the amazing food in new york!) and exploring all the city has to offer. An 'urban hike' is my favorite way to spend an afternoon. I love to see where the day takes me, whether it be brunch, a museum, a concert w last minute tickets, a walk in central park or dinner and drinks with my nearest and dearest. Just walking around for the day, some crazy and fun things can happen.
I am a passionate music fan (love to go see live shows), very laid back and adventurous. I'm very social and equally hardworking, and I am grateful to have a healthy balance between the two. I exercise/work out regularly but I'm not psychotic about it. I looove to travel and have been fortunate enough to have seen most of the US and various other countries...I appreciate the need to leave the urban jungle regularly and find many a pleasure in doing so.
I am equally happy to go out on the town (dive bar, wine bar, restaurant, lounge....whatever, I'm pretty easy to please in that department) or cook and watch a movie...or HBO/Showtime TV of which I am an avid fan! Someone who takes care of themself, is easy-going, happy, friendly, adventurous, and considerate who enjoys life and can find pleasure in the small things scores big points. Bonus if you can make me belly laugh and appreciate a small dose of sarcasm when indicated ;-)
What I’m doing with my life
living and working in New York City (I'm a nurse) and enjoying
every minute of it :-) I consider myself very lucky to be able to
live here, and I try to take advantage of all the city offers
I’m really good at
Being a loyal friend, making people laugh, "going with the flow",
listening and giving advice, being non-judgmental, trying new
things, being on time, multi-tasking and being organized, cleaning
(I know, right?? It's oddly therapeutic...), quoting movies,
knowing a lot of utterly useless Hollywood trivia (basically from
my love of movies) and I like to think karaoke, although that is up
The first things people usually notice about me
That I'm tall :-) 5'11" Beyond that, I'm not sure...you'll have to
let me know.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I will read, watch, listen to or eat pretty much anything at least
once. I'm a huge music fan (can't even begin to list favorites, I'd
rather talk about music in person but Pearl Jam is at the top of
the list) and a bit of a foodie so anything in those 2 departments
always pique my interest. I don't have an absolute favorite movie,
but it's one of my most favorite things to do (can't miss the
previews either!) Come Oscar time, I've usually seen just about
everything. TV wise--Dexter, Homeland, True Blood, The Newsroom,
Nurse Jackie, The Big C, and Girls to name a few. And of course
Madmen, The Walking Dead, American Horror Story, Breaking Bad, and
Sons of Anarchy. Crazy good. I don't watch any of that real
housewives BS or other garbage which is maybe rare for a girl, I'm
not sure. I can't sit here and list all the books and authors I've
liked, we'd be here all day, but I can read, I swear.... ;-)
The six things I could never do without
My family and friends
I spend a lot of time thinking about
where my next vacation will be
how to function on fewer and fewer hours of sleep
whhhy is this person walking so slow????
Things like "how can space not end???"
On a typical Friday night I am
usually out to dinner or drinks with friends...or home watching a
movie. I unfortunately have to work some weekends so my schedule
can allow for a weds or thurs night to be a lot more fun than a
friday depending on the week.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm blind as a bat and probably wouldn't recognize my own family
without my contacts. Beyond that, you'd have to wait to find out
but I'm pretty much an open book.
You should message me if
You're a fun, happy, intelligent, energetic and adventurous guy.
You can hold your own when meeting new people. You work to live,
not live to work. You genuinely enjoy your life and are looking for
someone similar. Hope to hear from you...
