My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
10 things you might want to know about me:

1. I consider myself an introvert, but some have disagreed with this — I also love meeting new people and having long, interesting conversations.

2. I'm a big Beatles fan, and when I watched this video of tons of people picking between "Lennon or McCartney," I realized I'd have to pick McCartney. But it's OK if you'd pick Lennon. If you prefer the Stones to the Beatles, that could be more of an issue...

3. I've been a vegetarian since I was 10. Don't worry, I get plenty of protein, iron, zinc, and vitamin B12. (I just had a nutritional screening.) I recently decided to make an exception for oysters, mussels, and clams.

4. I want to prioritize being happy and well-adjusted (which applies to myself and others). I've seen too many bright, original people hold themselves back with neurosis and angst.

5. I'm half-Jewish as far as ethnicity (that's why I included "Middle Eastern" under "race"), but I'm not religious.

6. I don't care very much about conforming to gender roles, nor do I define myself in opposition to them. I basically think people should live life the way they want to. Why would you waste even one minute of your life worrying about whether someone else thinks you meet expectations about what someone with your type of body is supposed to be like, when you could have spent that time focusing on something more important?

7. Politically, you could describe me as an amalgam of liberal and libertarian. Just to be upfront: if you have a strict ideological or partisan litmus test, I probably won't pass it.

8. I'm a big believer in equality. Anyone who answered "yes" to "Is homosexuality a sin?" should move onto the next profile, because anyone who has a problem with my friends and family has a problem with me.

9. I like grammar — I'm kind of a language nerd.

10. I tend to think and talk in paragraphs rather than sentences.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I have a great job doing meaningful, intellectually challenging work that affects New Yorkers of all different socioeconomic levels. I work a little more than 9 to 5, but I have a decent amount of free time. I've also been making music and cocktails.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Playing guitar. Questioning assumptions. Civil discussions of controversial issues.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I look younger than I am.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Lots of nonfiction. Lately I've been reading a lot of economics and philosophy. I used to read more straight-up analytical philosophy, but the books I've been reading lately might be better described as "wisdom": Human, All Too Human by Nietzsche, The Conquest of Happiness by Bertrand Russell, and the Discourses by Epictetus.

Movies: Woody Allen, Hitchcock, Kubrick, Back to the Future (I know what I'll be doing on October 21, 2015!), classic comedies.

TV: The Office (US), Shameless, Flight of the Conchords, Seinfeld, Stella, The State, Arrested Development, I'm Alan Partridge, Saxondale. (Those last two are both British sitcoms starring Steve Coogan — I've been delving into his work after seeing him in the movie The Trip.)

Music: I'm open to almost anything, and I don't worry about picking music to fit my personality. I love jazz, rock, Motown, and classical. A few favorites: the Beatles, Queen, Stevie Wonder, Jimi Hendrix, Buddy Holly, Sam Cooke, Leonard Cohen, Prince, Cyndi Lauper, Tori Amos, Nirvana, Smashing Pumpkins, Bjork, Regina Spektor, St. Vincent, Grizzly Bear, the Postal Service, Lorde...

Food: butternut squash, mushrooms, red peppers, asparagus, risotto, gnocchi. I love most vegetables, and I'm willing to try anything as long as it's vegetarian or bivalve (oysters, mussels, clams).
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Moleskine notebooks, fresh parsley, olive oil, autumn, 9th chords, my little brothers
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What do I not know that I should know?

Given that the cells in your body are entirely replaced every 7 years, can you really say you're still the same person?

Why doesn't everyone step aside and let everyone off the subway before they get on the train? Don't they notice that it saves everyone's time, including their own?

Why does OKCupid allow you to change your date of birth?

What's the deal with people on this site planning dates and then forgetting and going out of town on the day of the date? This has recently happened to me three times in a row, with three different women! Please don't message me if that's the kind of thing you do — I'm looking for someone reliable and considerate. If you're not interested in actually meeting, please just ignore my messages!

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You like going to cafes that aren't Starbucks, cocktail bars (somewhere not so loud and crowded that it's impossible to have a nice, relaxed conversation), oyster happy hours, art galleries, or karaoke, and would like someone to go there with you. You'd like to read books to each other and talk about them. You think you can beat me at chess or Scrabble. You'd like to go dancing, kayaking, or hiking.

You're independent, resilient, able to cope with life. Your profile says something about you that's more distinctive than that you like to have fun and love to laugh. You're someone who thinks about how your actions affect those you might never meet. You can handle a man with opinions. You're on here not just to look at pixels but to meet a real person.

Race is not important!
