My family did not prepare me for the realities of the world. Raised to have integrity, to be honest, appreciative and grateful, to treat people well and to share my toys, I find I gravitate to those who have an equally unrealistic view of the world.
Smart and funny is a favorite combination and good conversational skills are much appreciated. Cynicism is the default of the lazy in my book - so, if that's your thing, we probably won't be a match.
Having seen parts of Africa, Asia, South America, Central America and Europe only makes me want more - so many places still to explore!
I'm into moderation in all things - including moderation.
To me, great food is one of the finest pleasures in life. It doesn't always have to be fancy - I love french fries and foie gras - why choose? (I also like healthy food - I love it all!) Cooking brings me pleasure, though don't do it as often as I'd like. Maybe you can inspire me . . .
Though I've loved them, I have to admit a certain suspicion of those who don't drink coffee.
The young'uns seem to like me, but I'm looking for someone closer to my own age . . .
I was raised Jewish "Lite" and identify more with the culture than the religion - a soulful pragmatist (Agnostic).
I can drive a standard.
You will hear Carl Kasell's voice on my home answering machine. Seriously.
I was married. I was divorced. I am single. (divorced over 7 years ago) Nothing hidden here. . . Fit as a fiddle and ready for love, as the old song goes.
Limiting scope to NYC locals (for practical reasons, not snobby ones).
Truth in advertising: Please be honest in your profile and have a recent photo - and not just of your eye, or your torso or crotch (you know who you are), or hiding behind sunglasses - if you want to make contact. This is a visual medium. You've seen me. It's only fair...
And remember, the question is "what is your age," not "what do you wish were your age."
If you think there might be a connection here, send me a note - If I feel the same I'll get back in touch and we can take it from there.
