My self-summary
Why should you get to know me? Why not? I'm good people who's fun to be around who also has a whacky sense of humor. How many people will tell you they just decided to head to Connecticut to grab a burger from the first place in the U.S. to serve hamburgers? Or hopped in the car to see Waterfire in Rhode Island? Not many, I bet. Aside from fun day trips, loyalty and dependability are traits that are very dear to me. To prove that, I've been with the same co-workers and friends for over 3 decades! I originally set out to be a photographer, but reality set in so I nixed SVA and opted for responsibility. I work in midtown, live in Forest Hills, and play everywhere. I still carry a camera around (cell phone doesn’t count) for when that Kodak moment arises. I can't believe I'm well into my 5th decade.
My glass is half full, I live life to the fullest, I am as comfortable in jeans, and love clichés. That being said, I do want to find a mate, and it seems you do too, but it has to start with you responding to an email, and following through with going out because even though we match on paper, the human interaction is the missing piece of this puzzle. Go ahead, and hopefully we can complete this puzzle!
What I’m doing with my life
After losing a loved one, I realized that there's more to life than constantly looking for overtime and trying to prove yourself. For 30 years, I've been a paralegal for a small law firm. I'm now at a point where I'd like to do something else. I'll figure that out once we thaw out from this winter. My coworkers and I have developed some great friendships. We dine out together, sometimes travel together. With that being said, loyalty means the world to me, and I hope to all people close to me. Spending time with family and friends is key. For instance, last year, I took my mom, aunt and cousin to our childhood building and neighborhood in the Bronx, followed by a delicious meal in Little Italy. Spending quality time with those you love...well, it doesn't get much better than that.
I’m really good at
Staying cool under trying times. That, and being spontaneous, if given enough notice to prepare.
The first things people usually notice about me
my sparkling wit...and modesty.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Good Lord... Financial books, Charade (movie), Alfred Hitchcock, Woody Allen, comedies...Lady Gaga, classic Elton John, a good steak, classic rock, classical music, rough jazz, Take 5, Smokin' Al's, ribs, hamburgers, chicken, fish, root beer a good pastrami on rye, Real Time with Bill Maher, miss Seinfeld.
Six things I could never do without
Health, air conditioning, oxygen, water, my family, a normal night's sleep, and you.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why there's war...hate...greed... and that there's been a general lack of integrity for the past 50 or so years. Why it seemed easier for people to get together in our parents generation than ours. It never ceases to amaze me how many reasons someone can come up with to "next" someone. On a more selfish note...I can't wait till warmer weather and longer days arrive.
On a typical Friday night I am
Going out with friends, or hanging at home unwinding from the week.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Right now? If your Iphone is one of the six things you could never do without, we're not a match.
You should message me if
You think we'd like each other.
I'd get you.
You'd get me.
You believe New York encompasses more than just the island of Manhattan.
You know what's really important in life, know what you want, and are ready to get it.
The two of us
