My self-summary
Like so many, I'm searching for that fun and interesting person whose presence in my life makes it more fun than it already is. At this age, I no longer know exactly what that relationship will look like, since many of my pre-conceived notions haven't worked out. I don't think I really need someone whose interests are a mirror-image of my own. I like people who provide an interesting counterpoint to my life.

Somewhat more specifically, though, I do seem to like guys who are smart, accomplished, tolerant, generous, interested in and can discuss many topics (without going into a rant or monologue); actually listen, great sense of humor, with an edge but not a mean one. More like an edge that cuts through bull. You don't need to be strong as in constantly flexing your biceps and engaging in domination exercises with nearby alpha males. But rather with a core of inner strength that allows you to deal with situations appropriately, and to resort to more extreme measures only when people have left you no other choice. As they inevitably will, at times ....

SO, moving on to my self-description : first and foremost, I'm artistic. I work with metals, enameling; I design and fabricate jewelry. Some positives: I love to read and I am interested in the world around me. I am blessed to have interesting and fun friends. I love food and traveling, museums, theatre, dance, movies, books, but that's not an inclusive list. I like interesting things of many stripes and colors and am open to new. My background is eclectic, having studied law, history, and before that, modern dance. Also worked in the legislative office of a NYC agency and in college spent 6 months in Albany as a legislative intern for a non-profit.

I find that many people on this site describe themselves as living embodiments of the Boy Scout Oath: honest, kind, courteous, great campers (OK, not necessarily that), etc., and while I do believe those things of myself, I believe even more that this is something YOU must decide upon getting to know me! We have all experienced that some folks on the internet perhaps do not so much lie as describe themselves as they would like to believe they are. And yeah, OK, others just outright lie ....

Disclosure: I don't live in New York City but nearby, in New Jersey. I visit NYC often. Would like to meet guys from both states, as well as Connecticut and other nearby East Coast states.

BTW, I'm told that if you have the OK Cupid app on your phone, it looks like you are online all the time. So rest assured: I am not on 24/7 looking for that elusive Something Better no matter how great someone is. Just on a reasonable amount of time, looking for that right someone who is so difficult to find!

And one final thing: if you are the kind of guy who outright dismisses any woman who is not his physical type, especially as defined by Hollywood and the fashion industry, then we are not a good match. Ditto for card-carrying members of the Food Police. I will talk to almost anyone to try and find out who they are on the inside before I make a judgment. We should share this quality ... in spades!
What I’m doing with my life
Working on jewelry and art. Socializing and finding fun things to do with my friends or solo.
I’m really good at
design, art, travel, culinary appreciation, conversation, friendship, amusing myself and hopefully others
The first things people usually notice about me
My eyes and smile. I think. And I have a wardrobe of fun glasses, people often comment on that. My primary photo is recent and I am wearing my current lenses, tortoise shell with subtle flashes of lavender: attractive -- so I'm told ... by people I believe to be ruthlessly honest ;^] It's true: these are people with little or no ruth, so what they say goes.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Reading -- all kinds. Fiction, non-fiction, educational, trashy. Mix it up.

I also went through a phase reading all about Antarctic exploration. I'm sure I will continue with that at some point.

TV shows: The Closer (over now, sniff!), Bones, Criminal Minds, Law & Order -- all permutations, Criminal Minds. News programs, exposes (Dateline: thank you, Chris Hansen, is there anything better than watching predators squirm?) and educational, documentaries, MSNBC -- Rachel Maddow, Lawrence O'Donnell, Chris Hayes and the wonderful Melissa Harris-Perry, CNN -- Fareed Zakaria, Candy Crowley. Some sitcoms if I am in the room and they are on: How I Met Your Mother, Two Broke Girls, Whitney, Mike & Molly. Oh, and HGTV -- House Hunters, House Hunters Internaional, Income Property, Property Brothers, High/Low Project, although that fascination seems to have waned lately.

And, finally, anytime I can catch a Comedy Central Roast -- of anybody. They are vicious, politically incorrect and oh so funny. Joan Rivers was my favorite (and made me totally rethink Gilbert Godfrey), followed by Larry the Cable Guy. However, I recently learned that nothing can make Donald Trump appealing, even being the subject of a Comedy Central Roast. I'm sorry, but that guy is just one gigantic ferret cleverly disguised as a human being to wreak havoc upon the earth. Apologies, Donald Jr. Sorry, Ivanka. Sorry 3rd-not-as-famous-Trump-son. But seriously? Have you never looked at The Donald and wondered if there is a Humane Trap big enough to do the trick? And bonus: they'd just let him loose in the countryside and well ... it just may take him awhile to find his way back to civilization. But that's OK! We could all use the break. Meanwhile, maybe he could convince the squirrels, armadillos, warthogs and other miscellanweous wildlife that Obama was not born in the United States. They may be his most receptive audience for that opinion at this point. Yup, it's true. I hear the armadillos and warthogs in particular are staunch conservatives. And like many conservatives, they advocate a return to an earlier, more idyllic era. Unfortunately, in their case, it's the late Pleistocene. What can I say? This kind of thinking goes down big in the forest.

And in some of your red states.

I'm here all week, folks!

I enjoy many types of movies. No one real favorite though. Recently saw "To Rome With Love" and decided I could start liking Woody Allen movies again despite his apalling personal behavior ;^] Also just saw "Intouchables" -- charming, sort of a Disney-esque, feel-good movie built around a very unusual plot.

Ah, food! Almost all types. Spicy ethnic is a particular favorite. Sushi. Italian. French. Steaks. Seafood. Eastern European, maybe not as much. But still ... pretty much everything.
The six things I could never do without
The internet.

The news. Design and color ideas. Relationships, friendships. What makes people tick? Why is the sky blue? Oh wait, that was 50 years ago. Can't remember the answer, though.
