What am I looking for:
I want to have fun (don't we all?). I want to have coffee/tea/drinks, visit Museums, find little hole in the wall restaurants with "to die for" food, explore the city and stumble upon places I never knew existed and find really cool interesting people to do that with. That isn't too much to ask for is it? But alas it seems to be elusive so we've all come here. Finding someone you connect with and have chemistry with is HARD even amongst the millions of people in this great city. So I figured I would up my odds of finding someone by putting myself online.
Me: I'm imperfect (I know shock right) but I try everyday to be and do better. I'm not skinny and I'm not fat. I'm just right (like Goldilocks said of Baby Bear's things) but again that just right may not be your just right. I clicked body type as average but I wouldn't say I'm that. I would have checked curvy but a guy once told me that when a men read curvy online they take it to mean a women is FAT so I checked average. I'd say I was more curvy or voluptuous. By that I mean, my body looks more like Salma Hayek or Christina Hendricks from Mad Men (altho my Boobs are probably not as big as hers LOL). I try to keep my pictures as current as I can and to give some body shots so there are no surprises if we do meet. Looks matter. It isn't the main thing but anyone who says it isn't a factor is lying to themselves. I've been disappointed before so I try to be honest.
I'm intelligent, knowledgeable, funny, sarcastic and those are my bad traits :p I try to read a lot and keep up with what is going on in the world because I consider myself a citizen of the World first and an American 2nd. My parents are both from the Caribbean so I grew up with a world view different from my friends whose parents were several generations "American".
I'm compassionate and generous. I try to give back if I can whether that is monetarily or emotionally. Monetarily has been a little more of an issue lately since I no longer have a high powered job. Having said that, I support myself quite well and am not looking for a guy to take care of me! I'm really not one of those women who is looking for you to financially support me. In fact, in the past I've been the one who has given more financial support to my significant other. So Ideally I'd like someone who is my partner/friend/equal. If you see something I like (a book I mentioned or a shirt I saw), then I would appreciate it if you bought it for me but I'd also appreciate it if you sat and listened to a problem I had or rubbed my back.
*UPDATE Oct 2012- I just moved back to Brooklyn! So I'm looking for people who want to hang and help me get reacquainted with my hometown.
