I practice yoga and pilates often. Being healthy and eating well is pretty important to me. Right now I'm eating only unprocessed foods and alcohol very very sparingly. Sounds lame but it's doable so a date would probably be a coffee outing or a walk.
Before my exercise regimen and healthy eating lifestyle, I used to be the laziest girl you've ever met. I would eat bad for you food and would whine if my heart pounded too much. I am really proud of my change for the better and could never have done a headstand 8 years ago. This means my ideal boyfriend would be healthy as well. No smokers or big drinkers please. :)
Would choose a cute hole in the wall coffee shop over a Starbucks any day but would choose a Starbucks over a Dunkin Donuts if I had to.
Born and raised NY'er. Never left in 36 years. Hope that changes one day.
I enjoy the Health section of the NYT (especially the Well Blog) more than any other section and am really interested in rare diseases or perplexing ailments. "House" was one of my favorite shows. I got the diagnoses right a lot of the time. :)
I get giddy at Trader Joe's when it's empty and I get even more excited for farmers markets in the summer and fall.
Love farms and taking trips outside the city to visit them.
I tell the best stories and hear I make people laugh a lot.
I'm ambidextrous but write with my left hand. For some reason, people who meet me are fascinated by this.
I don't play games with dating. If I like you, I let you know. If I don't feel it, I also let you know. I'm very straightforward and dates have always said how much they appreciated it. I look for the same. Life's too short to be left wondering. I'm sensitive though and always make sure never to hurt someone's feelings. I respect others who do the same.
