I have always winced at the thought of online dating because I am an outgoing, decisive woman that handles herself with grace in any social situation. I thought that would be all I needed to meet "the one"… but in the name of open-minds and a changed society, I now consider it a viable option for seeking the love of my life. Several friends and family members, now happily married, have convinced me that meeting people here might not be the worst idea.
I am interested in a gentleman. I'm a firm believer that romance and chivalry are very much alive and well.
I do things with passion and spend quality time with those that are important to me. Being a doctor and having witnessed death, it brings one open to experiencing life fully, knowing our time here is limited. I approach all things, friendships, relationships with passion, perserverance and tenacity.
I like people who have brains, humor, wit, spunk, self-confidence, resilience, strength of character, humility. Those who have pushed through a storm and pay it forward. My gregarious, snarky NYC sense of humor is quickly evident. I grew up in NYC and moved out to California 13 years ago.
I have 2 children and custody is shared with their father, his wife and her 2 children. We get along well and have formed a nice blended family. Parenthood is a privileged priority. I have an adventurous life with my children. I am actively involved in the community and teach them the importance of empathy and serving others less fortunate.
On a lighter side, No odd facial hair styles (i.e. the playoff beard, chinstraps, mutton chops), high maintenance egos, and guys who think that playing video games is a sport.
Please don't take longer than me to leave the house.
I disapprove of doing drugs. I approve of work/life balance, big red wines, and Manhattans. I discourage overindulgence and under-stimulation. I encourage playing with children or animals, travel and learning a second language. I like culture, live events and Zagat.
Please have the time or be willing to take the time to meet. .Not interested in an email/texting buddy.
Send me a message :)
