First of all I am "post-op", and I could just put "Woman" instead of "Trans Woman" but Trans* is part of my journey so I identify thus. But, just so you know, I have what any other woman has, nothing "extra..." ;)
Second, I have very little patience for online dating. I don't get on much and my patience for a whole bunch of messages is super low.
That all being said, if you're still interested, please read on...
I am a sophisticated woman looking for a sophisticated partner. Please have something to say and be able to put at least a few words together. Also, please know who you are and what you want. I have lived and worked in Manhattan, in Budapest, and in San Francisco, and I have travelled. I know what what comes in a good martini and can make one. My favourite place in the world is Lincoln Center. I love opera and jazz and cocktail hour in little black cocktail dresses. I read and watch movies and love music. I also love to be at home, to cook wonderful things, dress nicely and please my lover.
I am a beautiful, magical, spiritual, being, living here in this physical body. And I do like luscious pleasures of the physical world. I love touch and sex and food and wine and stones and other crystals and whispey curtains and soft bedding and pretty dresses and shopping!
I was born into this world, as a male, but I am female really, a transgender female. And I love who I am, and am wonderfully comfortable with myself and my femininity and am looking for a partner who is also. As an earth child (Taurus), I love all things sensuous, cooking, eating, dressing up, drinking wine, raising energy, burning candles and incense. And I'm looking for partners, what a drag life is alone. Of all the amazing experiences I've had in my life, it has been the simple pleasures of the company I have shared that have been the most precious.
So please come and talk to me, perhaps you can be part of the next set of precious experiences.
I feel like I have done everything. But more and more I realize I am a storyteller. I love writing and finding other ways to talk about what life has shown me. I am also helping others through life transitions, gender and otherwise. Generally, trying to make the world, and me, a little better. I am also practising and teaching Reiki, reading Tarot, and doing personality type testing (Myers-Briggs).

And FOOD yes. Thai, Vietnamese, Mexican, Greek, Indian, Brunch!. All of it almost. And cooking it. Smelling the spices heating in the oil and wafting their aroma through my kitchen. Yummmmm.
Clothes that make me feel; mmmmmmmm, just you know, feel delicious and delightful
My Tarot Cards.
Jewelry & crystals. The kind that heals and feeds my energy.
Kindness & compassion
Books, especially books that inspire and make me feel more alive and more in love.
Food. Anything that feeds actually; the body, mind or soul. Art can be food.
How to have an impact on the world, and how to have and create more community. Americans are so disconnected and New Yorkers so busy. Like everyone, I need my friends and a person in my life and it just seems so difficult to connect to anyone here. I miss Europe.
Ok and shopping. I love shopping and cooking. Hanging around the kitchen with friends and cooking whatever.
Or... if you just feel it!
