About you: Thoughtful (as in both considerate and filled with thoughts.) Open, adventurous, self-assured. Comfortable with yourself and your life and interested in sharing both. You treasure the challenges and rewards of a good relationship. You have something to say - and the ability to say it. In short, brains, heart, sense of humor, integrity.
I've had different careers in different cities and countries, but some time ago returned home to NYC. There's nothing like it. My work is important to me. Balancing work and the rest of my life is even more important.
Good friends, good times, good conversations - all contribute to a pretty rewarding life. I enjoy my own company, but am ready to share my life and my space with someone else. I am a single mom to a wonderful boy and I enjoy (almost) every thrilling, exhausting moment. Motherhood has been my happiest adventure and my greatest achievement. Maintaining close friendships is one of my skills (and passions), but I have yet to find that special someone with whom to share my life.
I believe that trust and laughter are key to any relationship. And, no matter how busy we are, or how many responsibilities we have, there is always room for a new adventure. Want to share mine?
Movies: The Wizard of Oz (really!); Casablanca; Gone with the Wind; others more recent
Music: Too much to name - classical, jazz, rock, folk, world music, standards, soul
Food: Wide ethnic range (Thai, Korean, Japanese, Indian, Italian, Ethiopian, Middle Eastern). Won't - under any circumstances - eat canned peaches. Otherwise, I'm easy.
2. My circle of friends and family, i.e. my village
3. Books, books and more books
5. Laughter (especially with #1 and #2)
OK, so I went for 7.
(Not necessarily in that order!)
