I am a NJB, 5' 11''. mid-thirties, blue eyes, black hair,no facial hair, good shape but not muscular, banker with GS and definitely like women blonde with blue eyes. but not into one 'type'. I drink moderately and never enough to end up the next dawn with my trousers rolled-up standing in Sloane Square with a glass of Champagne in my hand. This would imply that the previous night's date had long gone home out of boredom or frustration
Have not been to Temple (Synagogue) since I was Barmitzvah'd and went to Israel once when I was 15 to pick melons on a Kibbutz in Gallilee where I got to know nice Israeli girls who were very friendly. I admire the 'Church' from an architectural viewpoint. Went to School at a day private school and then London University and Columbia Business School in New York City. My two favourite towns are New York City and London. I hate anything Sloaney (which also seems to have an undercurrent of antisemitism) but I have mastered my English education enough to sound English whilst thinking Yiddish. I find Public School (UK) Preppy (US) types boring. Don't like shooting or fishing and as far as Annabelles goes, I prefer to have fun above ground. I don't care if I never go to a Ball and I like my invitations by phone or in person and never on an embossed card, unless it is a wedding or a Barmitzvah.
The 'Palace' is the the place where I turn right on the way home after dinner in the City. The Mall and Park Lane would make a great Formula 1 race course and the winning car could be flagged in by the Monarch from her balcony. Unfortunately there is always a member of the Metropolitan Police to give me a speeding ticket when I try to see how quickly my car will go 0-60 down the Mall. Gentleman's Clubs are an ananchronism and poor value for money unless you play squash on a regular basis. I don't belong to any. I read the Wall Street Journal, USA Today, Hello, and lastly, the Mail because I want to know what everyone else is reading and it's entertaining. I have no political affiliations. Don't believe in military service e.g. Queen's Royal Lancers or in the USA, the Marines. Far too dangerous. However, for a good cause I would volunteer. Don't wear hats and don't use umbrellas. i buy one if I get caught or catch a taxi.
I like my women to be beautiful, 5'6 to 5'10' and to dress more Vogue than Tatler or Harper's & Queens. I like them to wear shoes with high heels such as Jimmy Chou and Manolo Blanik and fashion designers such as Chanel, Gucci, D&G, Prada, Valentino. Esacada is old lady and Hermes is nice but very old money. Husky, Burberry and Barbour are definitely out. I personally would never wear an 'English-Cut' suit or paisley pattern neck wear and I love Italian ties with a thick knot such as Pal Zileri and of course Marinella. Pants (trousers) should be flat panel without a cuff. Pinstripes should be slightly adventurous. I would never dream of wearing velvet slippers for a dinner party at home. Unless you are Daniel Craig, I think 'black-tie' usually signifies an activity in which I am forced to share a table with people I don't like and have never met for almost as long as it takes to fly from London to New York.
Coats of Arms belong on Ralph Lauren or Michael Jackson. I like my initials on my cuff and never on cufflinks or shoes. I prefer simple shirts often without cuffs or ties. My idea of a good night out is a one-on-one dinner with somebody who I find sexy, stylish and intelligent and with whom conversation is effortless. A night together afterwards is a perfect dessert or pudding as the English call it. Anything food or wine that tastes good is usually not from England. There is no point ordering a burger in London. the meat just doesn't taste right. I always have to get a burger fix when I get back to New York. I also miss coffee shops and Diners when I am out of the States.
Weekends would be in a romantic hotel somewhere west of Terminal 5. I currently live in South Kensington and New York. I hope this gives you some impression of my general likes and dis-likes. If you see anything in the above which amuses you or strikes a cord, write back.
