Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
*I spend almost every weekend in Manhattan or Brooklyn, since that
is where my social life is centered. If you don't like engaging
with people outside the city, there is truly no reason to
Hello, Shalom, Merhaba, Guttentag,
Back in the 1950s my grandfather had some of his artistic works
temporarily put in the Metropolitan Museum of Art. His canvases
express an incredible blend of abstract expressionist and cubist
styles. Interestingly, he stopped painting for the public forum
just a couple of years after the aforementioned exhibition and I
can guarantee that you have never heard of him unless you read
obscure Spanish literature.
Every single thing that I have learned to become, as a man and
human being, is derived from my love of art, history, music,
complex morality, and my love of the pursuit of knowledge.
Let's meet up and write poetry over tea. There are many intriguing
ideas to unveil and I'd very much like new and intriguing
acquaintances to explore such things with. There's something
awfully fantastic about being quiet with someone without feeling
strange about the silence.
If you want to know anything about me, just ask. I'd love to answer
any questions as long as I can ask a few of my own.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Studying archaeology and conducting thesis research so that I can
go for my doctorate in the UK and work in the Andes. Fighting
Lactose Intolerance. Wondering how difficult my life would have
been as a socialist during the McCarthy Era.
I'm teaching myself Turkish, teaching Hebrew to children, exploring
unorthodox romantic relationship styles, and enjoying my time on
the planet. Who could ask for anything more?
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Keeping myself from gloating about things I may be good at. I'd
prefer to show you what I'm good at than have you take me word for
it. Although I must say that I am phenomenally good at brushing my
own hair. Legend has it that the power of my hair brushing once
stopped the construction of the Fourth Reich.
I've been told that I'm really good at abruptly creating
refreshingly serious conversations out of meaningless banter.
I'm told that I'm really good at reading people. It's not a skill
that I am especially proud of, nor one that I find especially
enjoyable. In the end, I'm just not one you want to try to lie to
if you don't want to be caught.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Probably my hair and the fact that I'm usually well dressed.
Or maybe it's just that I'm a klutz and can be fairly clumsy.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I'm always looking for a good book and the time to read it. My
reading list at the moment consists of James Joyce, Carl Sagan,
Stephen King, and some anthropological works. I've got my work cut
out for me in the best way.
Horror and Science Fiction are usually my favorite film genres,
though I have a soft spot for Mel Brooks and Monty Python. I am
also completely enamored with Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless
My musical taste spans from classic rock to the baroque. My
listening preference all depends on the day. Recently I've been
rediscovering bluegrass for myself and have fallen in love with a
Canadian band called The Wailin' Jennys.
I can assure you that the way into my heart is through a mix
Foreign foods, especially seafoods, are fantastic. As much as I
enjoy red meats on occasion, I find fish both healthier and
tastier. (Fun fact: I was once a vegetarian and now love well
The Twilight Zone is a favorite show of mine and there are others I
enjoy, but nothing that I would use to define myself.
M.C. Escher and Winslow Homer are my easily my favorite artists and
they have just about nothing in common.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
There is not one single material thing I couldn't do without. Every
single material object I have now will either cease to be, or cease
to be mine when I am gone. Such things are not a worry, though
losing some objects would be a disappointment.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Rainer Maria Rilke's theories regarding young love.
If the Russians love their children too.
How I can make my momentary insignificance on this earth matter.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Saving the world from giant robots. Have you ever seen a gargantuan
homicidal robot? No? Yeah, that was all me.
For some reason rogue automatons like Friday nights.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Sometimes I wear glasses.
When I was child, and still a religious Jew, I accidentally had a
slice of pepperoni and starting crying, because I thought God was
going to smite me as a result. The moral of this story, you ask?
Sometimes accidental processed meats happen. One must prepare
oneself for when they do.
(To be clear, I'm not going to post private things that actually
matter to me.)
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You should message me if you want to go get a cup of tea and talk
about anything and everything. I'm an open book and completely
respectful of the fact that you may not be.
You would enjoy accompanying me to the opera. Or a gypsy punk
Lastly, in case none of the above apply, you should message me if
you think we'd get along. I'm a very open-minded and accepting
person. At least that is what I've been told.
-I'm in an open relationship with an incredibly loving and
wonderful woman at the moment, and we have a very healthy as well
as trusting dynamic. You can rest assured that if we go out, she
knows about it. I'm also not interested in leaving her for someone
-We have a couple profile:
-My profile lists casual sex, but I will not bring up physical
interactions unless prompted. Further I will not ever push someone
into an uncomfortable situation. It's strictly against my personal
-Men- if you are shirtless or dressed badly, my reaction will
almost always be negative. I'm not interested in a man who believes
his body is God's gift to the world or who believes that he doesn't
need to take care of himself.
-If you message me with any variation of "what's up", there's a
high chance I won't respond.
