I have lived in the NYC metro area all my life and am open minded and cosmopolitan. I am an empathetic, kind, nurturing person who values sincerity and I speak my mind--but gently.
People say I am easy to talk to, spunky and fun to be around, as well as physically attractive. Also, sane, reliable and responsible.
I like to cook tasty, healthy dinners with friends, drink some good red wine and talk and laugh into the night, go see some independent or foreign films, take in some interesting art, find some live music, eat in a little ethnic place, host a dinner party, go exploring in the city or far away, buy some fresh veggies at the farmer's market or just hang around the house and drink espresso and read the NY Times or the New Yorker or Nat Geo or articles about politics or maybe play around on the internet and find some intriguing bits of information to share.
I absolutely love traveling and have been to Europe, Asia, South America and the Carribean and, once there, i can't get enough of exploring, seeking, learning and understanding the culture.
I love political satire and like the Daily Show, the Colbert Report and Bill Maher. Watch PBS, HBO, MSNBC, Comedy Central. Like Curb Your Enthusiasm, American Masters, Boardwalk Empire, Downton Abby. Listen to BBC, NPR. Like This American Life, Radio Lab, Studio 360. Am a bit of a news junkie and have a keen interest in local, national and international politics and culture.
I like to listen to intense, upbeat music that makes my heart soar--soul, blues, rock, pop.
Things I am not into: fast food, intolerance, a lot of middle america, conservatism, fundamentalism, dogmatism, the bible, chain restaurants, aluminum siding.
I am looking for a hip, socially aware, sophisticated guy who is nobody's fool and has his love of life and libido intact. It would be wonderful to meet someone who is empathetic, educated, emotionally mature, with a salty sense of humor who is looking for a woman of substance. Must have a big capacity for affection and a generous heart.
