Here's where i try to appear humble: I know I’m not perfect. I’m impulsive at times, but too often overly cautious. I cry too often at movies and embarrassingly at some commercials (the one with the homeless and abused dogs gets me every time). I'm a terrible singer. I’m too often skeptical and I can be surprisingly gullible. I’m trying to find ways to be a better listener, to be more generous and to make a difference.
Geography? I’ve lived more years of my life in New York than any other place, but since I grew up in Chicago, have lived in California and spent a good chunk of my life travelling the world (more for work than play), I don’t feel I’m quite a full-fledged New Yorker.
Here are a few things I like: strong coffee, contemporary art, dark chocolate, South African wine, modern architecture/design, performing arts, goofy dogs, quirky cats, spicy food, smart men….
You want to know more you say? I work too much. I have status on two airlines and over 400K miles. I like bananas on my cereal, my second toe is slightly longer than my big toe, and I own my own drill...impressed?
Here comes the dreaded checklist: I'd love to find someone bright, compassionate and passionate about something in life, hopefully including me. You should be single (just not into people who are already committed to someone else) and honest . You have a decent level of self-awareness and are a good communicator. You value family, like animals and treat people kindly (is that so hard?). You know and care about what's going on in the world. You complement me well, and occasionally compliment me as well (when in doubt, look it up on grammar girl). Really, I don't ask for much - there must be one person out there!
Hint: You might try writing something thoughtful or substantive. Maybe comment on something in my profile or ask me a question…i.e. a simple "Hullo" or "sup girl" might not do the trick. Then again, you may not have read through all this drivel to get the message.
