Respond to me, please, if the idea of a man who will stimulate, challenge, and tantalize your mind intrigues you. Do not respond if the name of your designer appears on the outside of your sunglasses, handbag, or shoes. As far as I'm concerned, a Chanel is an option on a television (which I don't watch,) Kors is a brand of beer (which I don't drink), Ferragamo should be a type of pasta, and it's no accident that Manolo's name starts with a 'Blah.' The sexiest organ on a woman's body is the one between her ears. The rest of her body are her 'accessories.' Any adornments on top of that are mere distractions.
I'm more than a tad off-kilter. Not a fan of convention, mores and norms. If there's something I'm curious about, or that I think will enhance my life, I pursue it. It's a well-worn cliche because it's true: life is short. So when opportunity knocks, open the door and let it make love to you.
I really, really, try to be fair and decent to other people. I dabbled with religion for a bit...it wasn't quite for me, but the values struck a strong chord, and stuck. Being kind, being respectful, and being sympathetic to people (when need be)...irrespective of their lot in life....are fundamental and critical values I hold dear. Women who exhibit the same characteristics - who are compassionate and sensitive, who don't feel 'better' than anyone else, and who accord the same dignity and respect to a doorman as they do to a doctor...melt my heart and make me smile.
I love to entertain...and by that, I don't mean that I'll cook for you. I really can't cook for my life, primarily use my kitchen for storage, and am considering subletting it altogether. I'm proud to say that I've mastered the art of boiling water and making cold cereal, but beyond that, I'm stumped. Toast is a complete mystery.
I am completely consumed by the ratrace, and spend virtually every waking hour of every day working my off. But at the same time, I don't particularly care for money or materialistic things. I do spend a considerable amount on ready-made food (see above) but beyond that, I guess I'm saving for...I dunno...splurging on a JDate wife and baby?
And I like to think, analyze, contemplate, and wonder about things and their meaning...Like - I've started virtually every paragraph so far with the word "I." Um, what does that say about me?
Oh, and I'm really, really close to my family. They taught me how to be good (even though I'm not, always) and how to love and how to be sensitive and all that other good stuff. But they never did tell me how to make toast.
