My self-summary
Some of my favorites: workaholics, glass egos, news addicts, humorless know-it-alls, pedantic snubs, self-righteous do gooders, tone-deaf demagogues, selfish lovers, self-haters, consumers of ideas, sheep. Men who have all the answers but no real questions. Men looking for a short cut, a bargain, their muse, their princess. Men who call me sweetie. Men who want a down to earth girl. Something easy like a thai takeout minus the clean up. Men who want their mommy. Men who hate their mommy. Please be all of those things. And so much more.

And your prize? This bossy pants harlot. Curious, funny, combative, tender, irreverent, quick to laugh and slow to dance. But do insist. It's worth the effort.

Being Jewish... is an endlessly messy, intimate tangle. I'm happy to elaborate in person over much whiskey.

I would like to meet kindred spirits, sharing in my awe of nature, the power of ideas, the majesty of language, the mystery of the human and the humor of the divine.
I’m really good at
Negotiations. Clarifications. Laughing at myself.. and you. Doing 20 things at once. Leading on a dance floor. And intuiting deep, highly personal and often embarrassing thoughts.
The first things people usually notice about me
Smirky sass. World class lass.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'm no literary snob but love the printed text, the smell of weekend New York Times I drag to bed to smear on myself like a cat in heat. If you don't own book shelves, we won't get passed the first drink.

Really enjoying Adam Phillips (who should really do more Audible!) and Andrew Solomon (who should stick to print); outgrowing Jonah Lehrer but falling for the neuroscience and pop psych folks like Jonathan Haidt. Fiction-- Kafka, DeLillo, Bellow, Nabokov top of the list. Whitman, Pushkin, Bialik, Ackerman and bunch of young poets whose names I can't remember but love discovering.

Anything before 1880 and after 1940. The stuff between leaves me cold. Blues over jazz, bluegrass over rock, swing over pop. Some electronica for cure the slump.
The six things I could never do without
birds chirping
good coffee
hiking/running shoes
lazy Sunday mornings
the Seventh Thing
I spend a lot of time thinking about
how to stop thinking so much. It takes real effort to quiet the mind.
On a typical Friday night I am
Lighting candles, having a dinner with friends, plotting to transcend material reality, and honoring the sanctity of creation.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am a feminist who loves courtship and men acting... well, manly.
You should message me if
your inner child is friends with your outer adult. If you appreciate the difference between an argument and a fight. If you are not looking for a perfect woman to fill a space in your already full life. If you have the energy, the time, the stomach for the unknown, the messy, disruptive, unpredictable miracle of building a life with another human being.
