my life and ambitions: in my work life i'm a social worker--i always knew i wanted to be one, and i feel fortunate to spend my days helping some of the people in nyc who need it most. outside of work (because that is super important), i have a group of friends who i absolutely adore, practice pilates, read, attempt to find the new and slightly unknown corners of nyc/brooklyn, and consider how to blog or write a book about the stories i’ve gathered in the last 10 years without saying whodunnit—then realizing no one would ever believe they were true. the only thing missing is a man to share it all with.
a brief history of my life: born awesome. raised awesome. grown awesome.
but seriously: i grew up in connecticut, spent ten summers at camp ramah as both a camper and counselor. i came to nyc for grad school. since then, i've been working my magic in the city hospital system.
my perfect first date: you bring plenty of your own stories but also are eager to hear mine. we find ourselves laughing more than we'd expected. we both feel there's chemistry, and look forward to next time.
i'm looking for: a jewish man (not religious, but culturally/spiritually connected to judaism) happy in his own life, who--like me--is just seeking someone to share it with. someone who is looking for someone to come home to at the end of the day, who wants to sleep in on saturday mornings together.
my ideal relationship: i am looking for a partner, someone to build a life with. in my ideal relationship, we have just as much fun at the flea market as we do out with friends later than night. we listen to each other--really listen--and work hard to honor and recognize each other's best interests. i want to be loved and doted on (and to love and dote on you), but also valued for my brain. i am looking for someone who challenges me and supports me as they do.
my past relationships: let's just leave those in the past, shall we? that's easily third date material...
