I am originally from Brooklyn. Just moved to Staten Island in September. I work in Manhattan... thats 3 out of the 5 boroughs if you are keeping track ;-)
I work on the Upper West Side of Manhattan and its a terrible commute but I do like my job which is what keeps me going back each day! In my free time, I enjoy reading (what else can I do on such a long commute to and from work!), working out (I have lost a significant amount of weight and am working to get the rest off), and spending time with my friends and family. I don't have much time for TV, but when I do watch, I am guilty of liking some reality shows as well as some sitcoms and also love watching reruns of shows from the 80s and 90s (they dont make TV like they used to!). I dont follow sports too much but I do like going to sporting events and even WWE wrestling shows and events (don't laugh, they are fun). I love music and love almost all kinds of music. My ipod has a little bit of everything on it.
What I am looking for is someone who is hard working and ambitous but also knows how to have fun anywhere and can turn a dull moment into something interesting. The qualities that matter the most to me are honesty and a great sense of humor. Laughter is the best medicine and I definitely would like to date somoene who can make me laugh. I am too old for games so please mean what you say and say what you mean. The person I am looking for is someone who is not into game playing. I really do not have time for any games, so please keep it real or keep it moving. I am absolutely not interested in a long distance relationship of any kind. I would prefer someone who lives in either Brooklyn or Staten Island (possibly Manhattan). I have dated guys who live far out in NJ and Long Island in the past and after a while, the distance becomes too much. I would rather spend our time together and not sitting in traffic. Generally speaking, I like a guy who has meat on his bones. I am not really attracted to skinny men at all. I also prefer tall guys (5'11 and taller). I am 5'7 and it would be great if I didnt have to worry about how high my heels are before a date! Most importantly, the man I am looking for needs to be stable in all aspects of life -- emotionally, mentally, professionally, etc. If this sounds like you, let me know ;-)
