I like the company of strong, smart and passionate ladies who also use and appreciate courtesy. I will gladly hold the door open for you. I hope you will help me discover great new doors we can enjoy walking through together.
Having had long relationships I have a pretty good sense both for myself, and for what I want - and don't want - in a partner. I will always do my best to be positive and spread good karma, but at base I am on this site hoping to meet someone amazing and special (at least to me) I would not otherwise trip over on the Manhattan streets. Perhaps you can relate?
Checklist: good kisser; positive outlook; confident; love my family, love to travel; coffee lover. I want to wake up with someone wonderful each day - and yes, the same person. I smile at kids and dogs on the streets. Nice guy, yes, but with plenty of strength.
Wandering museums and taking in lectures.
Cooking and entertaining.
Movies: Love classics: "Casablanca," "To Catch a Thief," "The Day of The Jackal," "Sabrina," "Lawrence of Arabia," "Roxanne" and lots of others. The commonalities are good stories well told, bereft of meaningless violence and tired Hollywood cliches, particularly bad female characters like strippers, supermodel cops and hookers-with-hearts-of-gold.
Music: anything and everything.
Food: omnivore. About the only things I won't eat are anchovies, olives and mayonnaise. I have become a decent cook but will always defer to a true master.
Old and dear friends
Sunshine/outdoor time (this is Manhattan)
