My self-summary
I remain firmly convinced that who I am (and you!) can't be boiled down into a few sentences. But to give you a small taste:
I love: exploring new cities, quiet nights with good friends, dancing out of my earrings, curling up with a good book as the rain hits my window, good (and sometimes bad) wine, laughing until I beg to stop, Paris, Autumn, the smell of snow, tennis, the sound a sailboat line makes as it slaps against a metal mast, the beach, black cashmere sweaters.
Not so fond of: blue cheese, lack of curiosity, willful ignorance, sushi, impatience (although I am guilty of this myself sometimes), wet socks, rudeness, atonal jazz.
I'm looking for someone smart, kind, and amusing to share life's adventures.
What I’m doing with my life
Taking next steps, enjoying my friends, exploring the world.
I’m really good at
Losing time while reading a book.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: The Sound and The Fury, A Separate Peace, London, Any Human Heart, Adventures of Kavalier and Clay, The Rotters' Club, Year of Wonders..... so many, many more.....
Movies: The Diving Bell and the Butterfly, Stolen Kisses, Dead Poets Society, The Breakfast Club, Pretty in Pink, Say Anything, Manhattan
Music: U2, Coldplay, Patty Griffin, Kaiser Chiefs, REM, Radiohead, Adele, Travis, The Frames, Chet Baker
Six things I could never do without
Friends, family, good books, music, beauty, imagination.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
If living in Paris would be as wonderful as I imagine. Why fundamentally intelligent people can be such idiots. If I have enough reading material to last me through the week. Trying to come up with a job where I get paid to read and think big thoughts. Why this profile doesn't ask me to name the most private thing I'm willing to admit. (For the record: I can't bear the sound of a ticking clock when I'm trying to fall asleep.)
On a typical Friday night I am
Taking in a movie, out having a drink with friends, reading, catching up on TV.....
You should message me if
You want to laugh over a glass of wine (or bourbon). You're not going to ask me to do your laundry on our first date. (Oh yeah, that happened.) You enjoy a woman who's smart, kind, cultured, and opinionated but always willing to listen.
The two of us
