Hi. Thanks for coming. Would you like a drink? Make yourself at home. My Italian background taught me to go out of my way to make sure guests are comfortable, well-fed and sharing warm laughter and simple but real, respectful interaction that seems to be increasingly hard to find in the so-called reality/internet age.
As for me, I'm a native New Yorker who loves staring at the skyline from my rooftop, but the view could be better if I had the right company.
I like to be goofy and absurd one minute, then ready to drop into a deep discussion the next. I realized a dream by writing a pair of non-fiction books, but I'm aiming for different dreams these days. I want to eventually write something more personal. Maybe a comedy. Maybe a drama. Maybe all of it, as long as it makes people think and feel.
I like comedy, theater (I've performed in some amateur productions) , swing jazz, museums, lounges, dancing and the joy you get from the silliest moments you didn't expect to have fun in. Humor and music can get you through just about anything, I've found, so most of my free time is spent finding a way to incorporate one or the other, or both, into my activities.
Who I'm looking for: She'll dance in my room with me at a moment's notice and forgive me when I do something silly in public. She'll laugh with me, treasure God and her family and realize New York City is supposed to be so much more than the black-uniformed mannequins marching off to the latest club.
She has a wonderful heart. And a soul. And a passion that matches mine even as it stirs it. A desire to uncover the simplest pleasures that often get buried under the most absurd burdens as we chase the wrong things. She's funny, too. Kinda cute. And she wants to fall for me as much as I want to adore her.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
Anything from an intriguing activity in the city that lets us take advantage of its wonderful diversity and adventure to a simple cafe or park bench where we can get to know each other and go from there. Talking and eye contact is a nice start, because it will help us determine if we want more of both.
