Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I love to laugh; have many interests (eating out; walking (the
latter possibly being necessitated by the former? :); reading
(mostly fiction); live music; NPR; a few favorite TV shows; have
been a very regular movie goer all my life; culture - love the
Frick; Metropolitian Opera (even if I'm sad that the more
"everyman" City Opera is no more); off-broadway; love stand-up
comedy; sports (Jets & Mets...I really can pick them :) and I
was museum docent for a decade.
I have a lovely circle of friends in NYC; around the country and in
Ireland (where I grew up), who are (on most days) joyful;
enthusiastic; grateful, generous, non-judgmental & reliable and
I can't imagine my life without them.
My friends would say that I'm a good guy...then again they would
What am I looking for?...I suppose what most of us are looking
for?...fun and laughter; some shared passions are I think
essential. A woman who is smart, stand-up, soulful & sexy (with
a love of alliteration!)..Independent, a little quirky (within
reason!) and edgy is cool, where we complement one another and who

the idea of people completing one another).
I view dating as a journey rather than just a destination...if we
find romance - great...if not, to me that doesn't make the fun; our
shared activities; real emotional openness & connection; sex;
cuddling & lying-in we share together less meaningful.
I'm looking for a relationship where we are committed to one
another; enjoy our time together and at the same time value our
independence and alone time.
I prefer to meet, rather than have extended correspondence, as I
enjoy an hour spent over food/ a drink much more than a dozen

...And whilst I'm at it, Naples must be the world's greatest
city...for no better reason that it invented both pizza and

Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'll tell you if we meet...I think life's stories are much more fun
when told over a beer or a nice glass of wine

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Big fan of Pete Hamill
Loved Anchorman (in fact most things with Will Farrell...The
Cowbell skit makes me laugh every time I see it, but my favorite
skit is still Jon Stewart's riff on Donald Trump and NYC pizza), La
Vita e Bella, Dodgeball, Scott Pilgrim v the World; Argo and more
recently Silver Linings
Big Bang Theory, South Park, Person of Interest; Elementary and
I used to describe my tastes in music as eclectic...now I realize
that its just all over the place!
Love Italian, Spanish, Indian & Chinese food in
Possibly my favorite expression is - "True nobility of spirit is
not being better than anyone else, its just being better than you
were before"...I also liked something that I read recently..."We
may not control the length of our life, but we control it breath
and its depth"
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Trying to stay in the present moment - it's much harder than one

Whether the Mets will ever have a winning season...when I get to
