I am not afraid of spiders. I am the worst frisbee player the world has ever seen, but I love to play. Seasonally-appropriate beer makes me happy. I live in Manhattan but have Brooklyn envy. Dreaming of a time when a log cabin in the woods might replace my city living altogether, but taking major advantage of living here now.
I have no problem jumping into a pile of leaves or a pond, because I'm the last person to worry about my hair or whether my mascara is running. I'm also pretty fearless when it comes to new or challenging situations. My family and friends mean the world to me. I'm happy in my own skin, and feel incredibly lucky to have the life I have.
I love meeting new people, and I think we can always learn and connect. But I'm looking for something real and lasting.
What else. I ran my first half marathon in Brooklyn this past May, and will start training for the NYC Marathon in April. I volunteer with NY Cares. I just returned from a wildlife volunteer trip in Namibia this past September, and am already trying to plan my next visit. It was pretty fantastic.
I find lots of reasons to be outside, particularly in the fall. I see plays and musicals and concerts. I also do not turn my nose up at a good Netflix binge. I bake. I recently got a bike and am trying to figure out how to ride in the city without getting flattened.
Finally, I'm an aunt. I take aunt-dom pretty seriously. My nieces are super, and we get along well because they're not intimidated by my towering stature.
- Pivot tables
- Dog, cat and wildlife whispering
- Making friends with children
- Getting lost in foreign countries and being excited about it
3. soda stream
4. my grandma's recipe collection
6. the fall
6. trees to chill under
6. great theater
Also. How did I miss the memo about including "taco" in my profile name.
Also - I'm pretty independent and I have a hard time asking people for help. This can be a good thing, but when I am in a Food Emporium trying to reach a box of Nilla Wafers on the high shelf - meh. I think those clowns are still talking about the time that the short girl literally took down an entire shelf of snack products and twisted her ankle in the process, just to get a damn box of nilla wafers.
Lastly, James Taylor sometimes comes up on my Simon and Garfunkel pandora station, and I don't always skip him.
I'm looking for something special. One night stands are not really my speed. That said, I'm also not a big fan of emailing back and forth for weeks and weeks - so if you think we might enjoy our mutual company, hit me up and let's hang out. Also, I'm not shy about emailing first sometimes if I think a profile is cool. So, there's that.
Haven't given up on kids just yet, so if you are absolutely clear that you don't want them, we probably won't be a great match at this point. Also not afraid of people who already have them.
Open relationship / swinger folks. I wish you well on your searches, but you are not for me.
Finally, no smokers please. And if you hunt animals for the fun of it, we will not get along.
