My self-summary
Hm. Former ballet dancer (now a lawyer - long story...I've finally found my place in non-profit land where I hope to live forever!) I realize now that whatever else I do with my life, I will always identify first as a dancer. It took me a while to come to that realization but now I'm good with it since it's not about what you do but how you see the world. And, that I'm a true Taurus - physical, sensitive, sensual, tuned in to touch, visual beauty and taste, but sometimes still a bull in a china shop - kind of a klutz when left to my own devices!
Spent my first life travelling the world, settled in NY ages ago, but still love to travel. Usually to where my friends are but there are so many places still to see... I'm learning every day that the transition is endless and ongoing, and not always welcome, but usually results in some kind of unexpected magic.
What I’m doing with my life
You know, the usual - enjoying my friends when life in NY doesn't get in the way, becoming more appreciative of my family, looking forward to new experiences, accomplishments, challenges, travel, friendships. Just trying to make sense of it all.
I’m really good at
Listening, cooking, dancing, being there for my friends in a crisis and not.
The first things people usually notice about me
Legs. That is if I'm wearing a skirt. And eyes. Apparently not a normal color - but it must be something like tickling yourself - I can't really see it.
And empathy.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Historical non-fiction, biographies, human stories, all movies except horror, tango, blues, rock, food of all kinds (can't think of any I don't like - well maybe not monkey brains), Belgian beer, good wine.
Six things I could never do without
Never? Well, never say never, but I kind of like my family, friends, New York, travel, books, tango, hope.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Sliding every single decision we make has the potential for changing everything. That may sound weird, but I've accidentally run into people I know in this enormous city so many times in unexpected places, and it strikes me how if one of us had stopped to do anything else at any other moment that day, that meeting wouldn't have life that random? Or is meant to be that way?
Was that first true love ever possible to find again with someone else? Is it possible find that complete, passionate connection?
And recently I've thought a lot about how things take time, and how it's possible to re-imagine your life if you are with the person who opens your eyes and heart to a new idea of what life could be about.
On a typical Friday night I am
Out dancing or relaxing with friends or watching a movie or falling asleep and missing all of the above. Oh well.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
That I pretend to know what I'm looking for, but really - you only know when you know. And, I'm a reluctant romantic...just can't help it.
You should message me if
If you think we might be able to carry on a conversation, one that includes something about you and not just today's news. Then again, not only about you without some knowledge of what's going on in the world....I just realized there are two sides to that equation. If you're funny and smart and make me fall off my chair laughing, even better. If you don't have a sense of humor, I can't take you seriously. And if there is chemistry, I won't say the rest goes out the window, but you might distract me from the fact that you're not so funny. Then we'll see what happens.
(Apparently it's time for me to make a comment here - as nice as it is that I get lots of messages from all kinds of people, I'm just not looking for a hookup, tonight or any night. If that's what you're looking for, I am certain you will find it somewhere on this site, or somewhere else, but not with me!)
The two of us
