My self-summary
I'm a media maven with a killer education and special skills. I'm ambitious and nowhere near ready to call it quits. I am soft and resilient, have experienced love and loss, and keep coming back for more. I'm the one you click on when you're ready to go the next level of self-exploration. When you're ready to be vulnerable, challenged, laugh harder, feel deeper, think sharper, see clearer, feel safer. I'm not for everybody. Please move along if you're looking for another mother, a personal assistant, a nanny, or that person who takes your calls and texts 24/7 to hear you whine about how tired you are all the time. I have two teenaged daughters who live with me (don't pity me; they rock) and though my address is what it is, you'd be mistaken to define me by my suburb.

I'm looking for a manly man who knows what he wants. Who has tastes and passions, who knows that the more he knows, the less he understands. I want to be with someone who triggers my laughter, tolerates my (occasional) tears, and allows me to do the same. If things work out, there should be room in our relationship for all our friends, our families, us and ourselves.

What happens in the world around us matters to me. You read the whole newspaper (or its digital form) and you're fine talking about anything in there. I'm happy you have a past, and I'll take you as-is... just ask you do the same. We're probably not going to change much from here on out.

Bringing you coffee in bed and giving you a great massage are among my great joys in life, especially when I can do them because I want to, not because you asked. Your random acts of kindness toward me and others will be appreciated and rewarded in ways you can never imagine.

I have lots of long-standing relationships, including the man I was married to. If that freaks you out, sorry. It's non-negotiable. Our girls will always connect us and being friends is easier, natural and no threat. I don't compartmentalize my life or live in shadows. I am who I am and I operate in the truth. It's sad to me how many people neither understand that or can function that way. When I committed to that life, everything became so much easier.

The way to my heart, or any other important part of me, is through laughter. I'm really good at finding the things that will make you laugh. Sometimes at the wrong time. Usually when you need it most and expect it least.
What I’m doing with my life
I help run a major NY news operation. I'm raising two teenagers. I've always worked, and I've been a mom for 17 years. I'm so not an at-home mom, and I bow in reverence to all parents. It's much harder than anyone told us it was going to be. And much more rewarding than I ever imagined.
I’m really good at
figuring you out, whether you like it or not. I'm really good at fixing things, whether I like it or not. Ordering food, deciding what to do, wasting time, taking naps, making something out of nothing, being peaceful, finding the humor in everything, rationalizing, prioritizing, showing up on time, teasing, making people feel comfortable, understood and valued.
The first things people usually notice about me
My eyes, my hair, my skin. Really. They say I don't look my age. They tell me I should lie on these things, because I don't look or act my age. Well, I'm proud of where I am and how I look after getting here. I have a presence. I don't know this because just because people tell me; I just know it.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
TV is always first for me. Homeland brings Sunday nights back into my life. Dexter is gone. But Masters of Sex, wow. Happy HBO's The Newsroom will get a third season. Very inside Sharon. Most of the rest is on hiatus. Mad Men. Nurse Jackie. Veep. New SNLs. Old SNLs.

Movies: don't get to as many as I want to, but my life has been in a huge wave of transition and getting to the theatre is just never as easy as it should be. Enjoyed Blue Jasmine and Lee Daniels' The Butler. I'm one of those people who can go to the movies by myself, and often it's the easiest way to see what I want to see when I want to see it. That being said, holding hands and kicking someone's legs while I recross mine is one of life's perfect pleasures.

Favorites are those that helped me think and feel or get me through a long afternoon, like Sound of Music. Life is Beautiful, Airplane, Stripes, Broadcast News, Lost in Translation, Rear Window, Some Like it Hot, Hair, Crash. I've never walked out of a movie. But I've taken some naps.

Bookmarks: nyt, wsj, wapo, reddit, buzzfeed, business insider, espn, gawker, deadspin, mediabistro, huffpo, dailybeast, nypost, linkedin, facebook, twitter, and for now, okc.

Books: My profs would be delighted to know I'm still referencing my business school texts. Use it or lose it. Shantaram is the longest book I ever read, and I hope it makes it to the big screen at some point. Love everything Jon Krakauer writes. These days I favor the long form journalists who write books. Tom Friedman, Malcolm Gladwell. I've read a lot and if you're someone who needs to be with someone who's always reading, I'm probably not the person for you. But I'll leave you alone to read while I'm on the computer or in the other room watching tv.

Music: classic rock. Vampire Weekend is my new New Music crush. I love ordering mashups on Pandora and I have Zeppelin, Clapton, JT, van Morrison cds in my car.

Food: seriously? I like my meat rare, and respect everyone's choice to eat what they prefer. I enjoy all kinds of ethnic food, clean better than I cook, can't do super spicy and I'm not a big drinker.
The six things I could never do without
I love stuff as much as the next person, and I'd like to think I could live without most of it. Not that I'd want to, but that I could.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to be more effective. What I'm going to have for lunch. Sex. If there's anything good on tv. What Gawker just posted. Is it ok that I don't worry about my kids more. I know they're going to be fine. How happy I am to be back in NY after so many years in the diaspora. I enjoyed the diaspora. It makes me who I am today, and I'm feeling like I'm home again, even though I think about "what is home?"
On a typical Friday night I am
game. At least I like to think I am.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
in my digital footprint that lasts forever?
I’m looking for
  • Guys who like girls
  • Ages 40–55
  • Near me
  • Who are single
  • For long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
You like my look, you like my attitude and think you're the kind of guy who would do it for me too. I have an age range here, but it's a guide. Please don't just message me asking me if I like younger. Sometimes I do. Give me a reason. A "hey" isn't going to do it. You're more likely to get a response when you write more than a one-word email, perhaps even showing you did more than just look at my pics and even going so far as to share something that I couldn't have known from simply reading your profile. Ok cupid?
