My perfect sunday
Wake up and play tennis or go for a hike, meet with friends for lunch, run some errands and then maybe salsa in the evening.
The movie I've watched the most times
Gladiator (3 times in the theater alone).
My life history in 5 sentences or fewer
Born in Russia, moved to Oakland at 10 and have lived here ever since with the exception of 2 years in Chicago. I work in finance, exercise by going to zumba, playing tennis, hiking and such, and love spending time with my friends and family who are very important to me.
My first concert / My dream concert
Probably a russian concert, but first "real" recognizeable concert was Green Day.
I have a weakness for Guys/Girls who
love and have a great relationship with their family. Oh and chivalry is always appreciated.
For me, a first date no-no is
being late or checking your phone. But that's a general no-no for most dates.
A story you should remind me to tell you on our first date
How I ended up at a Chippendale's show in Vegas with a few friends.

First, I'd take a long trip and explore and see friends. Then, I'd use the money to open up a bakery.
