My self-summary
As a single gal in the big city, I enjoy groovy friends, self-employment, two cat pals, yoga & poker, my book group of 20+ years, and a steady diet of urban street life & culture. Life is full, and yet.... still wishing for a playfellow who gets my jokes and curls my toes.

Stats: Born and bred in the wilds of Long Island, a New Yorker since 1985. Lived in Japan and snorkeled in Australia. Never married or had kids, though open to all possibilities.

Like a piquant dish, I'm a mix of flavors: sweet and tart, pungent and mild. Beneath my polite exterior lies a surprisingly punchy sense of humor. Also a soft heart. I try to treat people and animals with fairness and kindness. A dedicated leftist, I'm comfortable with counter-culture and attracted to edgy. I will readily surrender myself to a night of bhangra dancing. I also seek the romance of old New York--highballs at the Algonquin or a rendezvous at Grand Central Station. Country living is an easy transition--love to hike, camp and swim. I attend, and even occasionally understand, esoteric lectures (the latest one was a heady combination of neuroscience and psychoanalysis). I generally/genuinely like the company of kids.

I believe in the work I do teaching communication skills to budding doctors and nurses. I also appreciate my flexible schedule--the gym is great in the afternoon when everyone else is working!

I’m into healthy, vegetarian food (snaps to my neigborhood greenmarket) and regular workouts. Among my bad habits: I like to stay up late, may leave dishes in the sink, have watched "Wife Swap" more than once.
I’m really good at
schmoozing. My friends say I'd make a great talk show host! I hope that means I'm sensitive to social nuance and good at drawing people out.
The first things people usually notice about me
Probably, as Katharine Hepburn says to Spencer Tracy in "Desk Set," that I'm female.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Two favorite genres are popular science books (I like learning about how people and the universe work) and 19th c. British novels.

Poetry: H.D. Doolittle, Robert Frost, Shakespeare's sonnets (I like to recite them in private), Elizabeth Bishop. A favorite poem:;view=fulltext

Movies: Satyajit Ray and Michael Powell (directors), 30's and 40's Hollywood, X-Men.

Music: Folk/rock (Richard Thompson, Donovan, Joni Mitchell, Neil Young), alternative/indie (White Stripes, Belle and Sebastian) standards (Ella, Sinatra), classical--particularly opera (Handel, Mozart).

Food: Diverse ethnic cuisines, spicy. My current favorite fruit is a small yellow mango with bright orange flesh.

Activities: Yoga, vegetable and apartment gardening, winning at poker, adventurous travel (rather rough it than take a cruise), hiking, dancing, swimming, smooching, strolls in Central Park (my backyard), lectures/talks, films, opera, concerts, museums, meditation (is that active?).

Least favorite things: Narcissism, right-wing politics, cutting in line, the street corner odor of honey-roasted nuts, highly processed food, cruelty in any form.
The six things I could never do without
My cats
Seasonal fruit
The great outdoors
I’m looking for
  • Guys who like girls
  • Ages 44–58
  • Near me
  • Who are single
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
you've got an inkling we'd get along.

My wish list: You’re brainy though not self-serious, warm, competent, physically fit/at ease in your body, into the arts and/or progressive politics, a keen observer and a graceful conversationalist (both give and take). Extra points if you can change a flat. Of course, none of us is perfect, so I'm prepared to appreciate your lovable quirks. And I won't mind at all if you are nice to look at.
