Mostly I work all day and then like to watch tv in my underwear. I'd like to change that by doing less of the first thing and doing more of the second thing, preferably with another person who I really care for. We might also, occasionally go outdoors. We should definitely be holding hands though.
(this video is about two years old, but gives a bit of an idea...).
I am the General Manager of a ballet company in the city that focuses on diversity through dance. They produce the second largest holiday show in the city each year, and I've been with them for 8 years. I am also the Creative Director for a jewelry store, doing window displays, marketing and design for their store. I teach cooking, baking and cocktail classes at Boston Center for Adult Education as well. I am 100% freelance and work for myself, so when those clients need less of me, I am an event planner, private chef, and I have a cupcake delivery service called Bad Boy Bake Shop. It keeps me active and I never experience the same work day twice. It may sound like I'm very busy, but I'm not. I maintain regular workday hours, I just work 360/365 days a year usually, but sometimes only for a few hours a day, or remotely from home. It's very easy for me to plan around, but when I'm single I do fill every hour of the day with work, usually, so that when I eventually meet the right guy, I can relax and work alot less, knowing I have saved up for that!
My favorite movie is House of Yes. I love a dark, witty comedy.
Also: Clue, Serial Mom, Love in Thoughts, Precious, Goonies, Troop Beverly Hills, She-Devil, Death Becomes Her, Funny Games, lots more.
Honestly, I fail at music. I don't have an iPod, a single song on iTunes, nor do I own a single cd. Make me playlists and teach me the ways of the musically inclined.
I love trying new restaurants. Hungry Mother is currently my favorite, Red Lantern, Rattlesnake, Anchovies, ICOB, Marliave, Bukowski's.
All of the tv; I like it all. However, I watch it exclusively on HULU. I love Please Like Me, BattleStar Gallactica, Keeping Up Appearances, Orange is the New Black, Misfits, Inbetweeners, Workaholics, Summer Heights High, The Librarians (the Australian mockumentary, not the sci fi one), Parks & Recreation, The Office, Grey's Anatomy, RuPaul's Drag Race, How I Met Your Mother and some really awful, but addictive shows on ABC Family. I just started simultaneously watching X Files, Freaks & Geeks and It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia from the beginning. I've also recently experienced the entire series of Gossip Girl, Pretty Little Liars, Ghost Whisperer and a variety of other excessively embarrassing tv shows. I can't lie, I loved most of them.
What in the hell is short term dating? Is there a deadline? Do you go in thinking this will fizzle in xyz time? Or do these people think they can't sustain a relationship? I thought the end goal was forever?
