I really love anything turn-of-the-century New York--I'm not really sure why. I go ga-ga over cobblestones and old buildings, and actually went down to the municipal archives to research the history of my building and neighborhood. I bought a beautiful map of my neighborhood drawn up in 1885 (my building was built in 1884, and was a chocolate factory/steam laundry before it became a wagon factory) and love having that piece of New York history in my home. I also love antiques and old things--every piece has its own unique story.
I have always thought of myself as easy-going because I'll pretty much do or try anything, especially if it makes deciding on where to go or what to do easier for the group... and also if I know it will make the people around me happy. But, in a conversation with an old boss, she believes that the right term is "accomodating." Apparently, I have opinions so can't call myself easy-going.
That said, hopefully you can respect a woman with opinions... I think I can hold a healthy conversation on lots of different topics and value a man who can do the same.
As for work, I am in Consumer Insights + Brand Strategy. My last job brought me to a lot of interesting places... worked on two projects in Saudi Arabia and have gotten to see a bit of the region. I'm now at a new place that doesn't require as much travel and am loving the time to enjoy life in New York (!!) and hope I can now meet someone worthwhile. :)
Board games. Maybe not really good at, but really enjoy. I love hosting a dinner party with some kind of game after--with groups it usually ends up being Heads Up or Cards Against Humanity. If at a bar, Connect 4 (yes, I will beat you). Let's play!
Oh, and cooking for friends. My next culinary challenge is to make a suckling pig. Perhaps before the holidays.
Books: Paris, New York (love Edward Rutherfurd), Cutting for Stone, Cider House Rules, Freakonomics, Super Freakonomics, Survival of the Sickest, Blink, Tipping Point, David + Goliath (fyi, Outliers wasn't as good), Predictably Irrational.
Food: I eat everything but cilantro (yuck) and love getting Cuban or going to Japanese noodle bars.
Music: Just about everything (except country).

Is the % match accurate and indicative of anything?
Do men still write poetry, or is it a lost art?
