I value honesty, good sense of humor, ability to listen, and flexibility in attitude and views.
I am a political scientist by training currently working in finance. I have a fourteen year old son whose custody I share with my ex-. I am a devoted mother, so I would appreciate someone who can understand the level of commitment that requires.
I am into yoga, hiking, and lots and lots of reading. I read both fiction and non-fiction, high- and low-brow stuff, classics. I am a certified New York Times junkie. I am fairly involved in politics and love a good political discussion, even (and maybe especially) if we disagree.
I am extremely close to my family - we are a small but devoted to each other bunch.
I grew up in a Jewish family and I have always been involved in Jewish observance although my level of involvement has varied throughout my life for various reasons which I will be happy to explain if you are interested.
I grew up in Ukraine and have been in the US since high school. I would love to share my culture with you and cook you a good Eastern European meal.
Museums, plays, and artsy movies are regularly on my list of things to do as well as regular visits to the beach.

Not really into TV watching but love old favorites like Friends, Seinfeld, Gillmore Girls. Recently discovered Madame Secretary and love it!

A Job - need to eat!
