My self-summary
*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 worry.

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
Studying archaeology 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. Loudly singing made up opera to my dog.

Spending a few minutes every day studying the Dao De Ching and contemplating the inherent patterns of the universe.

Teaching myself Turkish, teaching Hebrew to children, exploring unorthodox romantic relationship styles, and enjoying my time on the planet.
I’m really good at
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
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.
Sometimes I say really silly nonsensical things.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'm always looking for a good book and the time to read it. Right now I'm halfway through Utopia. My understanding of light pleasure reading may be a bit unorthodox.

Horror and Science Fiction are usually my favorite film genres, though I have a soft spot for Mel Brooks and Monty Python. I'm also convinced that Jim Carrey is a wonderful dramatic actor, but that he has one of the worst agents in modern history.

My musical taste spans from classic rock to the baroque. My listening preference all depends on the day. Today was about Norah Jones and Daft Punk, and the day before was about Led Zeppelin and Shubert.
I can assure you that the way into my heart is through a mix tape.

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 prepared tofu.)

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
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 definitely be a disappointment.
My understanding of ephemerality is kind of ironic considering I intend to be an archaeologist and value the preservation of ancient artifacts.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
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.

How much wood woodchucks chuck when nobody's looking.
On a typical Friday night I am
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
Sometimes I wear glasses.
(Update: I'm near-sighted in one eye and far-sighted in the other. I should wear my glasses more often.)

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
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 concert. Or a very cool exhibit at a museum. Or to play checkers in Central Park.

Lastly, in case none of the above apply, you should message me if you think we'd get along. I like to think I'm a very open-minded and accepting person.

-I'm in an open relationship and am only looking for casual dating and fun.
This is my very beautiful girlfriend's profile:


We also have a couples profile:


-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. I also know a poltergeist who's interested in haunting someone with so little to say. I'll point him your way at no monetary expense to you.
