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 woudn't they!!
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 & what we already have in our lives (I don't really believe in 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 e-mails.
...If there is a better pizzeria than Arturo's in NYC, I've yet to find it
...And whilst I'm at it, Naples must be the world's greatest city...for no better reason that it invented both pizza and icecream!!
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 Channel 13
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 particular
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"
What we're all doing here (and I'm not talking about being on OK!),
Domestic & world affairs
Whether the Mets will ever have a winning season...when I get to this last one, I try to stop thinking :)
and finally..."where the hell did I put my glasses?"
