My self-summary
That's it, I'm convinced: the election is over. Pay no attention to the media in the last few days. It is in their interests to say "the race is narrowing," but they will be predictably lying. If you doubt me, read the 538 Blog in the NY Times: detailed, neutral and insightful analysis. It shows that Obama has a 83 percent chance of winning. Yes: 83. And I believe it.

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.
What I’m doing with my life
Working. Laughing. Trying to spread good karma. I'm a writer by nature and profession.
I’m really good at
Reading, writing, grammar.
Wide-ranging conversation.
Wandering museums and taking in lectures.
Cooking and entertaining.
The first things people usually notice about me
My "FM voice," or my laugh perhaps. Visually? My hair: I have plenty, it's staying, and I don't have any grey.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: an English major, I am "well read" and a writer by nature. I like books (fiction and non) but also read The New Yorker. I can't help but read at almost all times. Shakespeare is my favorite. Not an Ayn Rand fan.
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.
Six things I could never do without
Family, including five nieces and nephews
Old and dear friends
Sunshine/outdoor time (this is Manhattan)
Good strong coffee
Great food and wine
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why we're all here. What's next. Politics/current events (I'm a liberal Democrat). How to make people smile - myself included!
On a typical Friday night I am
Likely out in Manhattan with friends. I also like wandering about the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the American Museum of Natural History. (I am a member of both.) If you'd like to wander with me and help me see things in new ways, so much the better.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Ask and I will gladly tell, with the right encouragement.
You should message me if
You want to make a positive connection.
The two of us
