To me, real intimacy means an authentic connection and a sense of comfort. It’s rooted in feeling safe enough to be vulnerable but also aware and conscious enough to hold space for the other person. I feel there is nothing more intimate than focused attention.
My Ideal Date
My ideal date would begin with drinks somewhere beautiful like The Beekman Hotel bar or Bemelman’s Bar at The Carlyle Hotel and catch up over bubbles. Then we’d go to Sushi Nakazawa – my favorite restaurant in NYC – for their incredible Omakase. If time isn’t a factor, a trip to the top of the Empire State Building makes for a lovely nightcap before dessert…
What Makes Me An Ideal Companion
I’ve been described as fun, lighthearted and easy going. I love getting to know people, especially from walks of life other than my own. I consider myself a lifelong learner so I’m always reading and researching subjects that pique my interest, quite a few inspired by my dates.
My variety of interests means I have just as much fun snowboarding and racing supercars at the track as I do shopping at Saint Laurent and sipping champagne at the beach. One thing is for certain – I’m a sucker for a good time!
How Important Is Attraction On A Date?
I think it’s a myth that attraction must be instantaneous – in my experience, the most authentic attraction may start with a spark but grows in intensity as you get to know each other. I have been fortunate enough to experience relationships and attraction that grows even more extraordinary over years of seeing each other and creating lasting memories.
My Dating Turn Offs
My biggest turn-offs include suboptimal hygiene, stinginess, and a negative attitude.
I like to be around people with open hearts and minds.
