I had written a profile already, but I am finding that I am not getting messages from likeminded people, so I am going to be a bit more forward. With all due respect, there is no need to keep reading if you are:
1. Under 35
2. Want to have children
3. Don't have a passport (or have never used it)
4. Are married
5. Have never heard anyone say, "You are so funny!"
5. Are female
6. Don't ever drink alcohol
7. Not creative in some way, even simply your thinking
I am a creative person with a fringe-y attitude towards life. For example, I just considered setting up my funeral on my thanksgiving table as a joke on my parents. They would love it. (As long as dinner is still going to happen:)
I am a liberal thinker with a Master's degree. I speak Brazilian Portuguese. I don't watch TV but will watch shows on Netflix. I like to think I am a reader, but I am not. My work is heady and when I am relaxing, I rarely end up reading. If I didn't work for a living, I would probably attend school for nutrition just to learn about it for myself, not to consult with overweight smokers about trying to cut down on bacon. I like to drink alcohol socially. My first relationship lasted for 10 years and ended amicably. I learned a lot about how to be in a relationship from spending such a long time in a healthy relationship. But have probably forgotten all of it by now. Kidding.
I don't smoke cigarettes anymore, but if they weren't bad for you I absolutely would. I love dogs and cats, although I don't have any of my own. I use Facebook. I like electronic dance music, among other kinds of music. I truly do like just about any kind of music, it is more about it being matched to the appropriate mood/space. I am 5'5" tall and have eyes and skin. I like to take pictures and goof around with taking videos and video editing. I live in Rhinebeck (100 miles north of the city and 5 min from the train to NY) and spend a lot of time in NY and on LI where my parents live.
Never been married, not sure if I want to but may feel differently if I were to meet the right person. I really enjoy fine drink and thoughtfully prepared gourmet food. An ice cold vodka martini or negroni and grass fed beef tartare rocks my world. I am not a vegetarian, but completely respect vegetarianism. Traveling is my passion - always happy to be heading to JFK or LaGuardia.
I have spent a lot of time downgrading my needs in the last year. I rented the house that I own and moved into a very small apartment. And I love it. I want to be able to pack a bag and go at all times. I am trying to learn to meditate but am lazy about it and find that getting a massage or acupuncture is easier. iPhone, Pod, Pad, Mac, etc. Love it all.
There it is. Blah blah blah, me me me. That's all I can think of to try and give an idea of who I am and for you to see if we would be a good match.
My last jerk thing - I won't respond to profiles with no pictures or to messages like, "Your pretty we shud hang" or "I bet you know my wife". Seriously.
Drop me a line if I sound like someone you would be interested in meeting!
