My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm playful, warm, compassionate, focused constantly on refining myself, trustworthy, and trusting of others. I love to learn. I enjoy going out with friends, whether to the movies, live theater, a yoga class, a bar for a drink, an acoustic performance at a small coffee shop, a nice picnic on the beach, or a long walk (dogs always invited). I really want to be number one in someone's life again. I'm recently an empty-nester, with my daughter a freshman in college, and I now have the time and motivation to devote to a new romantic relationship. Oh, and I'm a liberal Jew.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
You know how many divorced parents argue about how to raise their kids? Well, a big part of my job is to help them get along. I also, in my job, help people look for opportunities in obstacles, hope for the best while sometimes planning for the worst, and collaborate better with others. I'm very grateful, because my job isn't just a job. It's a calling. (Does that sound corny?) I'm also pursuing some spiritual learning, but I maintain my skepticism throughout. :-)
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm good at seeing the ambiguity in life -- the gray areas and nuances. I have been told I have an artistic eye; I love taking pictures. I am a good communicator -- both in writing and speaking in front of groups. I teach a 6-hour class, and I'm very entertaining, if I do say so myself. I'm also good at making friends on dating sites. I'm just not so good at finding passionate love this way. I want to get better at it, which means this time around I really have to balance being open with setting boundaries.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Aside from my curly hair (Jew-fro), I think the first impression I make is of someone laid back, easy to talk to, funny and interesting -- except in those circumstances in which I'm feeling tongue-tied and a little self-conscious. Then I just seem shy.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Most Woody Allen's movies since Hannah and Her Sisters and Crimes and Misdemeanors (and I know he's not the most popular director right now), documentaries (political, social, nature), Most recently read: Far From the Tree (about loving children who might be harder to love), and Can't We Talk About Something More Pleasant, a graphic novel about losing elderly parents. TV: Seinfeld reruns, Law&Order: SVU reruns (I only watch TV when I have ear-buds in, at the gym), Music: Sweet Honey and the Rock, James Taylor, Carole King, Indigo Girls, random world music, folk, and bluegrass. Food: Thai and Vietnamese, Indian, sushi, green smoothies, thin crust, brick-oven pizza with eggplant, arugula, and green peppers.....
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
The experience of having raised a child, my camera, my dog, my career (and the colleagues who come along with said career), knowing I have at least a few friends who will always have my back, and -- though this might sound like a cliche -- my memories in the form of photographs (which gather more importance over the years as my memory fades).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
1. Becoming an entrepreneur and overcoming some of my fears 2. studying what some of the newest trends are in my profession and how I can "trend up" and make more money to supplement my current income, 3. whether or not there is a god (or many gods), whether or not things really do happen for a reason and, if they do, what the hell could the reason have been for THAT?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
What night is tonight? Hmmmm.... I am typically at the computer researching useless information (or at the movies ) in winter, but the rest of the year I like to spend time outdoors.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I will admit that on my last date I failed to chew my food as thoroughly as I should have, and I choked on a piece of duck. I stood up, grabbed my throat for effect, signaled I needed help, and i frothed at the mouth and drooled uncontrollably, like a rapid dog, all over my pink sweater. Just before my date got close enough to do the Heimlich, I remembered my CPR training, and coughed it up; the duck went flying at least five feet across the restaurant. And it was probably the classiest restaurant I was ever in. I hear it closed soon after.
