ABOUT HER & WHO SHE'S LOOKING FOR

I'm an autumn baby so I love this season, particularly in New York. It's busy now through the holidays but that's when the city is abuzz so...let's play!

First, to get this question out of the way: professionally speaking, I'm a chef (and sometimes-writer) who gave up my corporate-ish job years ago. I love my work. I own my own company. At its core, my job is to make people happy and create memories -- and I believe I'm good at my job.

Personally, I'm interesting and interested. I'm fun AND funny. I value intelligence (of all kinds) and I'm smart myself: a quick learn, high EQ...plus I possess an expansive knowledge of trivia and pop culture that allows me to be a kick-ass trivia team member! (now, if I could just find a way to monetize that non-skill...). I'm an upbeat optimist with a healthy dose of sarcasm-cynicism. I can be a smartass of the highest order, then disarmingly sweet -- but never false or mean. I'm supportive without smothering. Both forward-thinking and old-school, driven and independent. Family and friends are incredibly important to me: I'm close with my family and have had most of my dear friends for decades. I'm well-read, well-traveled, but always have a little positive anxiety about the vast amount of things I still want to do, see, experience, and learn, and the great people I have yet to meet -- this propels me forward.

I can hold my own out with the boys, but I'm also unapologetically feminine: I have soft skin and curves and I smell good. I'm a great travel companion. Spontaneous. I'm quick to laugh and find humor in things -- there's so much absurdity and FUNNY stuff peppered throughout life, if you can't laugh at it, what's the point?

I lived for many years overseas, in Italy -- an experience that taught me the value of making time for the enjoyable things in life...and reinforced the importance of family, good friends, and the blurring of the line between the two. It also taught me to be open to new experiences at all times -- great things often come from where, and when, you least expect them.

I've had an amazing, fun life so far with no regrets, full of wonderful people and amazing experiences...and have chosen this over "settling" for the sake of simply having a ring on my finger or satisfying someone else's idea of a time line. I've seen too many people who are miserable and/or full of regrets. I, on the other hand, want to fall into bed each night beside a man with whom I'm smitten. That's paramount, in my opinion, and worth waiting for. I'm finally ready for it.

Physical attraction is important, for sure, but mental and emotional attraction even more so. I'm affectionate and hope to find someone who is also generous and demonstrative. I believe chemistry and sexual compatibility are key components to a fun, healthy, successful relationship. But for chemistry to exist, our brains need to click as well. My ideal partner? He possesses emotional intelligence and is empathic. Smart, curious, someone who is interested in learning throughout life. A funny, dedicated best friend and travel buddy/co-adventurer who could, in theory, carry me out of a burning building, but who isn't afraid to show me his softer side, too. We crave each other on numerous levels. We laugh constantly. Ideally, my partner would understand and enjoy food and its focal role in my life -- and hopefully we could wine and dine each other now, and on into our shared future.

I'd like the person I'm with to understand the importance of being together as individuals. I feel couples should complement (and compliment) each other. A limitless sense of curiosity? Turn-on. Imagination? Check. Strong sense of loyalty? Bingo. Game playing? Not appealing. And also: please be taller than I am. Really, truly taller. Sorry, it's just a thing I have.

Does any of this resonate with you? If so, I'd love to hear from you.
