You know how some people are better looking in person than in photographs? I'm going to throw it out there and say that I'm more interesting in person than I am in my essay. Writing a summary of who I am and what I want isn't really my forte. That said, I'll do my best to see if I can intrigue you.
I'm from Ohio, but have been in New York for more than 5 years. I used to be an investment banker, but in June - after 5 years - I quit. This was a result of numerous things going on in my life -- and to treat myself, I have spent the last 3 months traveling around Europe. I got home in mid-October and thanks to the U.S. customs form - I know off the top of my head that I was recently in 19 different countries. It was one of the best experiences of my life.
I am a hopeless romantic and believe that there is love out there somewhere, and I'm hoping to find it one day. Since I'm not great at expressing myself in a written biography, I'm going to quote a song that I think sums it up quite nicely:
"I'm not surprised, not everything lasts,
I've broken my heart so many times, I stopped keeping track..
...I might have to wait, I'll never give up
I guess it's half timing, and the other half's luck,
Wherever you are, whenever it's right,
You'll come out of nowhere and into my life,
And I know that we can be so amazing
And, baby, your love is gonna change me
And now I can see every possibility
And somehow I know that it'll all turn out
You'll make me work, so we can work to work it out
And I promise you, kid, I give so much more than I get
I just haven't met you yet"
If you're interested, let me know - I'm looking for a connection and perhaps you'll be it ;)
