Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a man... M.A.N. As in, that really repetitive Muddy Waters
song? As in, a gentleman but not a pushover? I'm a grown-up punk
rocker and a sophisticated Jewish boy. I'm a writer and real estate
entrepreneur who happily resides on the East Side. Also, I have a
lot of eyeglasses. Why? Cuz...
Cooking, I'm quite good at. Baking? That shit eludes me. I have
kick-ass taste in furniture. I'll good-naturedly argue with you
about restaurants and so-and-so's last album, but tend to eschew
politics unless I know you... though, if you're a right-winger, I
probably won't date you. I'm inked, but not too inked- a couple of
arm tats. I have 2 moody cats and a super chill Boxer. I will
happily jump on a plane with you, but never out of one. And I'd
rather go to a campy movie than go camping.
I'm looking for someone I can talk to, laugh with, argue with, eat
with, drink IPA and whiskey with, and eventually wake up with. I
want to do silly/serious/tragic/happy/sad stuff with this person.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Property-related stuff (yawn). Writing silly stuff about silly
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Writing stories and jokes, being delightful.
The first things people usually notice about me

My blue eyes. And my poker face. I'm Steve McQueen, but only in my

Movies/TV: '70s American cinema, French New Wave, Mel Brooks...
shit, tons of stuff, ok? Netflix (of course!), old
horror/exploitation, dumb comedies, Silicon Valley, Veep, Bojack
Horseman, The Americans, True Detective, Game of Thrones. If you
tell me TV sucks, then you is just ignorant.
Music? I've got a good record collection, but I'll briefly
summarize: 60s- garage, funk, ska/reggae/dancehall, psychedelic.
70s- funk, Sabbath, Zep, Big Star, Raspberries, Keith Cross/Peter
Ross (Bored Civilians), Jerusalem, old school punk 45s.
80s/90s/00s- British art/post-punk, indie rock. I regularly steal
what the kids are listening to on Spotify.
You don't have to be into all the same stuff that I'm into. Maybe
some stuff, though?
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Dark denim/boots (I have a lot of 'em)
Danish Modern furniture
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How you're going to cook my steak. Heeeyoooo! Seriously, I'd like
to travel more. The Italian Riviera is my next destination, then
probably Southeast Asia.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
With friends, seeing a band at the Echoplex, movies at the Vista,
dining at a restaurant/taco truck/home, at a comedy show.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
Your pics consist of you participating in actual human experiences,
rather than lots of posed "look at me" headshots (calm the f down,
L.A.). You're fairly chill, funny, happy (but not boring L.A.
Pollyanna-on-helium happy), and have confidence and poise. Also, be
available. I assume you want to date me, right? At least 59% of
