***FYI...I don't reply to anybody who hasn't properly filled out their profile or who doesn't have at least 3 pics on their profile. Nor do I reply to anybody outside of NYC or outside of my specified preferred age range. NO EXCEPTIONS. Seriously.***
I spent my first month in NYC living in a convent. True story. No, I was not considering taking a vow of celibacy. But it's a great opener.
I am passionate about various forms of expression and art and inquisitive about what makes us tick. I'm equal parts carnal and creative and believe wit is far more arousing than sarcasm and prefer grit over machismo and muscles.
I'm kind, self-aware, ambitious, supportive, encouraging, compassionate, empathetic, and a little goofy. I can offer a sympathetic and objective ear, and a solid shoulder on which to lean. I believe in the art of diplomacy.
If you like tooling around the kitchen and heating up some stir fry, having someone to bounce ideas off of or act as a sounding board after a long day, or like discovering new wine bars we'll probably have a lot of fun.
Some fun facts about me:
*While I've never wanted kids of my own, I'm not opposed to dating someone with kids. I get why that might not work with folks who have kids.
*I try to learn a few new words a day.
*I wear bold colored lipstick when I run. Just because.
*I really want to check out an absinthe bar. For writing research. No, seriously.
*If Zoolander is on TV, I set aside whatever I'm doing to watch it.
*My friendships are ride or die friendships.
*I'm a Dan Savage fan and know what GGG means.
*I own maybe 8 pairs of shoes but wear my sneakers the most.
*I added a Pee Wee Herman sound clip app to my phone and play it when stressed. My favorite? "Why don't you take a picture it'll last longer!"
*I moved to NYC 20 years ago by myself without knowing a soul.
*I can walk 65 Manhattan blocks in 45 minutes. If Madonna is playing on my iPod, I can do it in 42 minutes.
*I volunteer to walk dogs who have been abused.
