Finding some unusual, hidden spot really excites me. I'll probably look forward to telling you about it or showing it to you when I see you.
I'm a recovering writer and now earn my keep making tech things happen. My favorite spot at CES is wherever start-up alley is. I binge-watch tech-crunch news on my Roku and end up feeling like a woeful underachiever.
In high school I saw a bunch of mean girls picking on a shy girl on the lunch line and I went over, got in between them and told the mean girls off. Years later that girl sung at my wedding and we still drive miles to see each other.
One of my favorite things to do is put my headphones on and go for a really long bike ride. Sometimes I just like to see how fast I can go, other times I like to explore and stop for pictures. I am fine doing this w someone or by myself. I do the same thing in winter when I'm skiing. I like to go with people but I will not hesitate to drive myself to the mountain. Head to the gondola and ski the back bowls by myself all day. Headphones on and a few battery packs in my backpack. After a long day on the hill, a nice hamburger and beer w friends talking about what we did and saw earlier, is the best.
If I sit around all day and do nothing I'll likely be mad at myself. Even if I'm sick I usually accomplish something. Even if its just listening to an audio book.
I was a lifeguard and a ski instructor in my early twenties. In my next life I'm going to do that a whole lot longer and not worry so much about the next phase of my career.
What I learned in lifeguarding I've carried with me throughout life. If we're in an emergency I'll be level-headed, quick acting and thoughtful, even if I'm terrified. I may fall apart after it's over, but I'll hold it together when you need me to. That doesnt mean I won't let you lead, but it means I'll be a help, not a hindrance.
I'm not really vain but I think it's important to keep up your appearance. It's just about projecting what you think of yourself, to the world. I don't like the way I feel if I'm not looking at least presentable.
What I like in men?
They must be mostly upbeat, not too important to get silly, have an open mind, not be easily intimidated, like a challenge, and be someone who appreciates an honest heart and good brain.
I live on the Upper East side, To be upfront I am a mom to one wonderful child aged 11 who lives with me most of the time. Yes I'm divorced after quite a long marriage and yes I was the one who pulled the trigger because I knew it was the right thing to do and we are both happier for it.
It's been a few years now that I've been on my own, so I'm finally ready for a real relationship again. The past is the past. Ask me about me, not my marriage or my divorce.
If you think you can handle me, reach out. If we go out and if I offer to pay my share dont be insulted or think I don't like you. I just don't have a sense of entitlement like that and I don't think its fair that a guy should do all the paying. I'm appreciative of the effort you made in coming to meet me. If it doesn't work out it's always great to meet new people.
I would bore you with my book selection. I like historical novels. I like Broadway, music is probably mostly techno and I still love Journey, food I'll try anything as long as it's not still moving or overly spicy. Sucker for good Indian food too.
I'm also directionally challenged but somehow I always manage to get where I need to go.
