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, amirite?
I'm a lifestyle/gender issues writer living in Manhattan looking for someone who seeks a partner, a sounding board, and a companion. I'm 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.
I prefer grit over machismo and muscles.
I'm looking for someone whose personal mantra might be, "Nobody ever said life was fair."
I'm kind, self-aware, sometimes giddy, supportive, encouraging, compassionate, empathetic, and a little goofy.
I'm looking for a guy with whom I can develop something substantive, emotionally fulfilling and physically satisfying Yes. That way. That part is a must.
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 together.
Some fun facts about me:
*I realized I was in serious need of grammar and punctuation lessons, so I just signed up for a course with Gotham Writer's Workshop. (I am also going to take their Novel and Fiction writing courses.)
*If Zoolander is on TV, I set aside whatever I'm doing to watch it.
*I am fortunate to have friends who encourage me to learn as much as I can about out nation/world.
*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.
