I've got to admit that the Advanced Search functionality on here is quite misleading. Upon inputting my wants, POF simply came back with "does not compute." I guess my dream man doesn't really exist. Or maybe the moral of the story is that we often set a laser focus on one thing, causing us to miss what else is out there and may be even better for us.
That said, I'll kick it off with a recent story. I was walking through Herald Square behind a swarm of tourists on my way to lunch. They swerved left, swerved right, and I quickly dodged left to try to get around them. A man was handing out free pizza to the left, so they darted across the sidewalk to grab a slice. My hunger got the best of me and I muttered "move" under my breath. The guy walking next to me laughed, agreed and gave me his number. I feel like we meet the best people when we're not really trying. Yet here i am, looking anyway.
When I commit to something, you can count on me being there 100%. I've spent my time in New York working my way up in my career, occasionally forgetting to make time for the other things I enjoy i life. Only over the past few years have I re-kindled my true passions of sports and travel. After crossing the finish lines of races like Ironman and Comrades, I decided to round out my adventures with surfing in Costa Rica, skydiving in Switzerland, running overnight through Vermont, swimming around Manhattan and mountain biking through the Alps. Next on my list is hiking Machu Picchu or checking out the adventures that await in Thailand. Locally, I'm looking into rock climbing and boxing. I'm a newbie at both, so take it easy on me.
Life's not all an adventure, so let's get to the next story. I've been through it all with New York renting. I could spend our entire first date telling you stories, but then I wouldn't get to hear about you. I've had slum landlords, leaky ceilings, no heat, mice (I called them Feivel), been evicted (not my fault, I promise) and guy roommates that turned our apartment into a revolving door for 19 year olds (they were 34). After going through enough bad apartment situations to write a book, I broke down and bought my own. I was young and working way too many hours, so I'm just now getting around to renovating the kitchen so I have enough counter space to hone my skills in the kitchen. I'm currently welcoming all recipe recommendations and accepting applications for a sous chef.
I clean up well and I make a great wedding date. I can hang out with anyone from your friends to your parents. I'm generally happy and have a knack for bringing out the best in people.
My parents are still together after over 45 years and I look forward to one day following in their footsteps. As I get older, we've given up on the gifts in favor of spending more time together and seeing new places. For their 45th anniversary, we took Vegas by storm. My 70 year old dad even got carded by a very large bouncer. Beat that for family time.
When I was a teenager my mom warned me not to laugh on dates. She told me my laugh was too loud and that would be intimidating. Ah, the advice of an older generation woman. Fortunately she also taught me my pleases and thank yous and to appreciate the good people that come into my life.
So now that I'm re-evaluating this, I've stopped inputting what I think I want in a partner and a friend, and I'm just looking for someone who can inspire me. If you think that you fit the bill, please don't hesitate to drop me a note. I've written quite a bit about me here, so if you only have time to write a one-liner, please hold off until you have time to share more of your story.
