I'm from the Midwest, but I have wandered around a lot since then. I've been in New York about 4 years and I work making cable television. History Channel, Discovery, Science, Travel Channel, A&E, Animal Planet, Weather Channel, etc. It's a lot of fun, and I work alot and travel alot. That means I'm not always around. It's cool though because I like to travel, particularly internationally. I'd rather travel with a backpack than a suitcase.
A few things that I find attractive in a girl is that she's not afraid to ride the subway and she has enjoyed or would enjoy traveling abroad by herself. Understandably though it's often more fun with a partner. I'm attracted to girls who are nice and respectful to strangers, yet have no problem making fun of their family and friends. Final thing I can think of is how I feel that "things" don't make me happy so much as good people and interesting experiences. I hope you feel the same.
I live in Williamsburg and I work in Manhattan... or on the road.
