Quality-junkie in all my pursuits. I believe that what you get out of life equals the energy you put into it, and that can be applied to any endeavor...relationships (both romantic and other), planning a vacation, cleaning a closet, making lasagna (see pics), taking a yoga class, raising kids, writing an online profile.
What am I looking for? A partner. A quiet trust. Someone who appreciates the complexities of a relationship, who wants to build shared experiences. Someone to establish a home and a life with, to get in bed with at the end of the day. Although I'm independent, I don't think people were made to live alone.
For work I'm a successful, fully-employed classical musician, which in NYC is a very lively livelihood. Hard-working and passionate about my profession, and am attracted to that quality in others.
Be brave out there, guys. A lasting relationship is not for the faint of heart.
