I am a native New Yorker, and I just moved home from two years working in California's wine country. I have lots of energy, but am also good at relaxing. I love checking out new bars and restaurants as well as seeing art shows and live music, but I hate waiting on line so I tend to avoid anything SUPER trendy.
I am looking for someone with a great sense of curiosity, someone who is very intelligent without being pretentious, as well as someone who values honesty and integrity in others. While having a ton of money is not something I have ever aspired to, it is important that my potential mate have the means and freedom to strike up on new adventures and make the most of our time on this funny planet. Physycal attraction is a must, but, in my experience, cannot exist if two people are on completely different wavelengths.
I usually prefer reading over television, and I love to cook an amazing meal at home as much as I love dining out (which I love a lot). I have very strong opinions, but I pride my self on being incredibly open minded and (almost) always respectful. I have a vivid sense of humor, but forgive me if my profile doesn't leave you rolling in your chair- I do not claim to be a comedy writer!
I have had the fortune of getting to travel with great frequency and seeing new parts of the world is my #1 ambition. Most recent travels: Thailand, South of France, Hawaii, Sardinia.
TURN ONS: Chivalry, ambiguously red hair, rugged looking men, raunchy sense of humor, men who can and will cook for me, looking hot in business casual, looking hot in ski gear.
TURN OFFS: Pretty boys, egomaniacs, workaholics, bad tippers, video games, clubbing, cologne, chauvinism.
