My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Here are some basics: I smile often and laugh easily. I’m pragmatic, grounded and independent. I'm honest and transparent, almost to a fault. I try to forgive minor transgressions quickly. I’m lucky to have great friends and a very close and functional family. I’m fiercely loyal to those I care about. I value playfulness, depth, intellectual curiosity and occasional irreverence.

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.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I have a great career that seems to impress other people more than me (yet I'm offended when people take no interest). It allows me to travel around the world, often to Africa these days, but thankfully I travel much less than in the past. I live/work in Manhattan and love the city, taking advantage of the arts and culture, but I also like to spend time in upstate New York where I garden for the satisfaction of simple accomplishments and for the love of tomatoes, and I find time to hike, kayak, cycle, sled,, etc.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
making friends with animals; baking; parallel parking (probably better than you even if you won’t admit it); being a cool stepmom (to a young adult now).
I speak Spanish well for a gringa, but if I ever had time, I would try to improve my French and maybe learn Swahili.

green eyes maybe? at least they used to comment a lot..
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books - recently read Cutting for Stone and Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks; loved The Road, Blood Meridien and other Cormac McCarthy novels, anything by Isabelle Allende or G. Garcia Marquez (RIP), God of Small Things, Kite Runner, even loved Dan Brown's books while recognizing their inherent trashiness.
Movies - so many favorites but loved Midnight in Paris. Art house films and mainstream movies
NPR addict
Sunday NYT, New Yorker when I have time (stopped the subscription because the pile up made me feel guilty)
Music - jazz, blues, classic rock, partial to female vocalists, from Sarah, Billie, Ruth, Etta and Nina to Amy, Regina and other contemporaries. Recently discovered that I really like Chronixx – whodathunk?
Food - pretty much everything (not a big red meat eater) love food trucks and ethnic holes in the wall, but appreciate great restaurants too. Love tofu, arugula, strong cheese, Korean, Thai, Japanese - pretty much anything Asian, Mexican (preferably in Mexico), Italian (like from Italy)
Mostly a wine lover, but I like an occasional beer, scotch or cocktail
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
my dogs, art, chocolate, family, friends, toothbrush
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Why the many people who apparently don't know what "wherefore" means don't look it up. How long could it take?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
breathing a sigh of relief
