I love traveling, learning new things, reading, dancing, and spending time in the mountains. The coolest place I ever visited was Paris. I have never been to a city that was more alive! There is just so much—music, art, beautiful buildings… ah to be a Parisian girl, eat baguettes every day and stroll down the banks of the Seine!
Originally from Russia, ironically, I now work as an English teacher. I used to be in the public schools, but I now have my own private practice. I tutor kids, helping them become better readers, writers, and thinkers. I really love what I do because it has all the joys of teaching, minus the craziness of the schools. I find it amazing that I can sit in my study with windows open and discuss To Kill a Mockingbird with a student AND get paid for it!
I am looking for my partner in life. Someone who is a kind and honest soul, a guy who has passions and interests, who wants to hike mountains, travel the world, and laugh over a glass of wine or a cup of strong black coffee. My friends say that I want a romance from a 19th century novel, and perhaps I do, if that means finding someone who wears his heart in his sleeve, who loves deeply, reads and ponders books, and who will wake me up in the wee hours of the morning to head on some grand adventure.
Update: As of this spring, I am taking improv classes! Yes... and! It's scary but strangely freeing. =)
Favorite movies: Life is Beautiful, Love Story, Forest Gump, Dirty Dancing, Chacolat, When Harry Met Sally
Shows: Mad Men, Wonder Years, Parenthood, and... Sex and the City. =)
Music: classical, the blues and Jazz
If you aren't looking for a serious and honest relationship, or if you are still hung up on on some past relationship, move on please.
