I only recently discovered that I like green olives. I was certain that I liked black olives, pickles, and other assorted antipasti, but this new awareness has added a whole new flavor to my palate. And that's how I embrace this online dating: a chance to look for the characteristics that I know I connect well with in another person, while remaining open to being delightfully surprised by an unexpected green olive along the way.
*I cook in order to unwind.
*I am a scotch and bourbon fan (on the rocks, of course).
*Favorites of mine include the Big Lebowski, Tom Wolfe's Bonfire of the Vanities, NPR's This American Life, The New Yorker.
*I wind surf in the summers.
*I'm loving the BBC right now: Downton Abbey, Luther, Sherlock
*I enjoy hoppy microbrew IPAs, potato chips inside my sandwiches, olives, and spicy food.
*I love to laugh, I like humor with an edge. I am stimulated by dry wit.
*I have the travel bug (I've been to 24 countries).
*I scour the city for the best eggs Benedict and savory cocktails that include jalapenos or pickles.
*I wish I could go backpacking and camping more often.
*My favorite day for crosswords is Thursday.
*I think tapas are overrated, but I'm a sucker for tasting menus.
*I'll watch any Frasier rerun on tv.
*My dad taught me how to keep a scorecard at a baseball game, a skill that is underused in my life.
I'm an adventurer and explorer. I consider myself grounded, spontaneous and fun. I have lived in NYC for the past 7 years and have a full life, but I would also like to meet someone who is fun, confident, introspective, passionate and engaged in his own life, and who is looking for a relationship. I am looking for a partner with whom to explore this city and expand my world.
