Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
A college professor once asked me on site if I was from California.
I said, "yes, how did you know?!" And he said in a very dry tone,
"because you're smiling."
NYC has roughed me up around the edges but at my core I'm still a
pretty bubbly person. That said I also have a serious side and
appreciate people who can be authentic and straightforward as
I think planning is fun :) Vacations, budgets, parties, whatever. I
don't need to stick to my plans (and often don't), but I enjoy the
"Foodie" is a fair label. I experiment in the kitchen and, though
the results are mixed, I do enjoy trying!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work in PR/Comms which is something I never thought I would do
and the jury is still out if it's for me long-term.
I serve on several committees for/a civil rights
I travel a decent amount. I like cities but I really love being out
in nature (hike, swim, scuba, star gaze) and would rarely say no to
a little R&R at a resort. I believe it's good for the
Otherwise I'm bopping around NYC.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Making a big deal about holidays- even the Hallmark ones ;)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Reads: I don't read enough plain old books, but when I do I prefer
non-fiction. As for magazines, I subscribe to The Economist,
sometimes InStyle, and always look forward to US Weekly at the nail
salon :) Does perusing cookbooks count as reading? I definitely
Music: I'm a bit of a weirdo for my generation in that I'm not "in
to" music the way everyone else seems to be. I'm rather clueless
about artists and bands. I get 90% of my music from movies and TV
shows. However, I do like all kinds of music! The lezzie in me
loves folk and singer/songwriters, the gay man in me loves show
tunes, the Cali girl still thinks the Doors are the awesome,
Beyonce and I have the same birthday...
Movies: Chick flicks (When Harry Met Sally, Love Actually, The Way
We Were), superhero/comic books (original Superman, X-Men), Out of
Africa, The Blind Side
TV: West Wing, Star Trek: TNG, Mad Men, Game of Thrones,
Food: everything from street meat to Wolfgang Puck! Favorites are
avocado, sushi and cheese. And throw in a good ribeye.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Google when I can't sleep
Breath of fresh air (breaks from city life)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Personal growth, compassion, if I should bother painting my walls,
why my cat meows so much, where to take my next vacation, etc...
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Out with friends or Netflix binge

You are curious, thoughtful and intelligent.
Like giving and receiving affection.
Not arrogant- really- I find it very, very unattractive. Confident
and secure is great.
