My self-summary
I love to laugh and enjoy being around others who do. I can be serious, but fun should be, well, fun! I cook (sometimes), I like to walk around the City, both for exercise and people watching. A weekend might find me staying out until 5AM or watching DVDs. I firmly believe sometimes doing "nothing" is essential. I like movies and books, museums and live music, sports and gossip, talking and listening, long conversations that help you get to know someone new and shorter ones that make you anxious for the next encounter. I'm a pop culture freak and am proud of being a child of the 80s!

I'm looking for YOU if you're thoughtful and sincere as well as independent in mind and practice. You are a woman who is not afraid to state her opinion and tell me I'm wrong. I need someone who likes to talk and above all, someone who has passion. You have an open mind and are accepting of all kinds of people, but aren't afraid to share your opinions. I am easy to get along with, so are you. You're clever and occasionally evil, in a delicious way. You like to cook, but like being cooked for even more. You like great film and literature, but realize there's room in the world for the enjoyment of trashy stuff as well.

Talk to me.
