I've just come back (yet again!) from NY and the trip there is becoming a bit of addiction for me. Only problem is that it makes me ask questions like 'What have I been doing in London for the last 23 years or so?!' I'd love to meet some people who are either in love with NYC as much as I am or ex-New yorkers! (Though, this is not an essential criteria as such ;>)

I'd really like to make new friends in my age group now as all my friends are much younger.

I'm a very strong-minded and passionate person who does not subscribed to doing things half-heartedly. These can be good attributes if I want to achieve something but I'm also aware that it can get me into trouble at times.... I'm also a bit eccentric, (in an artistic sort of way) full of contradiction. (at least I'm aware of this!) Ambitious and a self-improvement enthusiast(!?) in many ways. I hate prejudice, self-righteousness and small-mindedness and I try my best not to fall into those trappings. Oh by the way,

I am slightly skeptical as to if you EVER successfully meet anyone on Internet; I have to confess I've done this very BRIEFLY about 3 (4?) years ago. I had coffees/drinks with some nice people but without much luck. (All come with those VERY precise shopping-list-like criteria. And maybe I was guilty of that too...)If you are overly prescriptive, you aren't giving 'serendipity' a chance, are you!?

So this time around, (also without any hang-ups of fresh break-up!) all I'm hoping for is a friendship.
So... anything else is a huge bonus.
And I want to be proven wrong on my internet dating theory.

Not glamorous as it may sound. Most of times is spent beavering away in a solitude. Going to openings are part of package but Art world is bitter and twisted. Only good thing about it is that my work takes me to places that I'll never go otherwise such as Brazil, Europe, US etc...

I'm not that interested in where I came from; I'm more interested in where I'm going. (sorry is this too corny???)
