My self-summary
*Note: I am here to meet guys that I might not encounter on my daily path. After a slew of recent messages that I have found disrespectful I need to be upfront and say I want to meet men who are open to actually dating. If you are looking for a one night hook-up; I am not your gal. If you are not; keep reading : )

* Additional Note: I haven't really been finding what I am looking for here so I really only check this once every month or two in case I am wrong :)

More about me:
As an only child with parents who lived in different countries, I developed a fearlessness of doing things on my own. The truth is though- most adventures are so much better to discover, experience, laugh and tell stories after, when there is someone with you.

By nature I am a creative but I am willing to learn and be taught about things beyond my nature, especially by those passionate about what they are doing.

I want to meet someone who is ready and wanting to get to explore getting to know someone with the potential of falling in love and sharing something amazing. However, I don't believe we can know if any of that is possible until we actually meet and spend time together so please no long introductions or sales pitches.
What I’m doing with my life
I am a Private Chef in Manhattan. I am working on a solo show. Not to long ago I exec-produced/starred in a play in LA. That's what I do, is that what I'm doing with my life? I don't think I can truly answer that question ...
I’m really good at
Getting people to share their secrets.
Cooking
Making people laugh when they need it most.
Walking long distances in all kinds of weather.
Snow skiing.
Rambling.
Witty texting (Can provide Strong References.)
Tongue Twisters...
The first things people usually notice about me
Depends on who is doing the looking and what I am wearing. My eyes and smile would be high on the list...
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I am shortening this list to keep some mystery:

Books: ** Always Desperately seeking a new great novel or non-fiction piece of brilliance. Two I have loved one fiction one non:
Shadows of the Wind
The Outliers

Movies: Picking 5 of my mix. One comedy. One Indie. One Thriller One Foreign. One Doc.

Row Hard
Old Boy ( Korean not the remake)
The Usual Suspects
Beginners
The Hangover

TV: Picking Three. One Primetime Network. One Cable Network. One Premium Cable.: The Good Wife, Suits, Game of Thrones

Music: Yes please. Lots. Always looking to discover new local bands that stay with me to the point I need to download them and play on repeat for days on end walking the NYC city streets. Any suggestions?

Food: Too many. I am a chef. Three specific picks.:
Chinese Crab with Black Bean Ginger + Chili,
Melting hot buttery chocolate chip cookies,
Brötchen mit Frühlings quark und Gouda
The six things I could never do without
OK assuming water, food, air and sleep are covered.

I am going with:
Laughter
The Ocean
Touch
Music
A good pillow
My iphone.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My next creative project...things and people I shouldn't be thinking about...the environment...wondering what other people are thinking about as they walk about their day...the state of politics in this country...films...food.... Wishing I could beam places...like Whistler to ski for four days then Bali...then Baldwin Beach in Paia to swim.
On a typical Friday night I am
No typical- Some work, some play, some solitary.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am very allergic to cats.

I use too many spoons.

Also seriously no jokes about my username. I've gotten all of them. It relates to an email address I created in 1997 and I can't change it unless I want to upgrade my account.
You should message me if
For any reason you like...but here are a few suggestions:

- You actually want to meet up in person. I am not really looking for pen/text pals ;)

-You are single. If you are in a committed relationship do what you need to do but that's not for me.

- By single I also mean not in an open relationship looking to add a new flavor for the evening. No judgement, I am just not your flavor

- You are confident you can make me laugh so hard my drink will spill out of my nose.

- Because.. I'm not likely to contact you first ;)

-You are between 30-46. Not into much older or much younger guys.

P.S. I'm much more likely to respond if you have a photo posted where I can see your entire face, including your eyes. Not that I don't love your dog, sunglasses, abs or surfboard but I would prefer to see you :)
