I'm Russian born-with an exotic look and penetrating eyes-but I've spent my entire adult life in NY. However, I've benefitted from both worlds, with the traditions and values from my close-knit Russian family and my independent, adventurous spirit from America. I've been called feisty and outspoken, but underneath my tough exterior lies a very sensitive and nurturing soul. I have varied tastes in everthing: food-from plov to sushi and everything in between. Music - I love Beyonce and Kirkorov, as well as opera, ballet and Broadway. Travel is a must and though I'm neither a spendthrift nor miser, I want to enjoy the finer things in life with someone. I'm fun-loving and I'm looking for a person who likes to let loose and have a good time, but who also knows how to be serious when the situation arises.
