Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
*Fair disclaimer before everything else - I have a dog, he's
awesome. You must like dogs, this is a deal breaker if you don't.
If you're nice, I'll even let you snuggle with him.
I'm a NPR listening, jeep driving, fast walking, whiskey sipping,
flaming liberal New Yorker with a vicious dog. Wait, did I say
liberal? I meant flaming progressive. I also happen to throw
awesome BBQs in the summer(also flaming).
It would be nice to meet someone who wants to troll through
Brooklyn Flea, go on crosstown adventures to track down that new
food truck serving lobster rolls, laugh awkwardly at bad stand-up
comedy shows, jog around Riverside park with my dog, or just lounge
around on one of those pedestrian tables at Bryant park and people
watch on a lazy weekend.
My friends describe me as genuine, fiercely loyal clever and
generous, with an occasional dose of sarcasm mixed in for good
measure - basically all the nice things under the sun. Originally
from northern California, I moved to NYC 7 years ago and ended up
getting a little apartment in midtown with a patio where I try to
convince my dog(rescued from the shelter), a crayfish(rescued from
a Chinatown fish market) and half dozen birds(pigeons and they're
really squatters) to get along. Personality-wise, Briggs-Myers ISTJ
for what it's worth...
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I have a minor in something I love, but would have a hard time
making a living with, likewise with my dream job.
As for the day job, I'm contributing my part to the financial
system to keep the economy from collapsing again. Most of the time
I sit at a desk daydreaming, but when the shit hits the fan, I make
Starting fires, starting trends. Making good, doing good, making
bad and making by.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
-Making inappropriate comments at the wrong time or laughing when
someone says "this is no laughing matter"
-Being clever, solving problems and creating new ones.
-Not wearing a coat during the winter - gotta have a heart that's
warm enough for two.
-Fixing your computer (the first time's always free...)
-Giving great back massages.
-Leaving people better off after they met me.
The first things people usually notice about me

Wow, they do make tall Asian guys!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books - Marley and Me, The Things They Carried, and The Art and
Science of Influence. Or anything Chuck Palahniuk, if only for his
dark brutal honesty.
Movies - I have a weakness for indie/foreign films and any movies
involving zombies. Films with some type of meaning. Gattaca,
Contact, Shawshank Redemption, Black Hawk Down, Crouching Tiger -
Hidden Dragon, Amelie, The Lion King, The Count of Monte Cristo.
The Walking Dead and Fringe is usually on my queue and recently
discovered Battlestar Galactica.
Music - Does NPR count as music since it's on the radio? I've been
rediscovering all the sappy R&B and gansta rap that was popular
in the 90s'.
Food - I will survive when the apocalypse comes and there's nothing
but crickets and pinecones to eat. Otherwise sushi or the prix fixi
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
A good song.
Rules to bend.
An escape plan.
Various forms of exercise.
Things made with protons, neutrons and electrons.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Why people trying to get onto the subway always block the people
from getting off the subway by standing right in front of the
How to make a better person. Broken people, I can't fix those. Only
they can fix themselves, it's the only way. Bendy people on the
other hand, now that's cool.
A good friend said this to me recently and I'm still thinking about
it: "It took me a long time to learn that the only people worth
spending time with are those that make you better. It sounds
selfish but it isn't if you think about it. If two people who both
make each other better are together - as friends, as a couple, etc
- that's a good thing for both and the world."
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I tell myself Friday morning that I'm going to have a quiet night
at home with my dog, catch up on Netflix and unwind from a hectic
What usually ends up happening is that I find myself at a bar with
friends 2 subway transfers from home wondering what went wrong with
my original plans.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

When I used to live with housemates, I would always try to be the
last person to go to sleep because I had this fear that they'll
attack me in my sleep.
At times, I find this online dating venture an exercise in madness.
Sort of like how the American Indians felt after they realized they
traded the entire American West for a bag of beads and an otter
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
I'm drawn to good writers, and smart idealistic types. Being
considerate is a must and able to hold a conversation (*hint
conversational reciprocation). You're comfortable in jeans and on
the occasional dance floor. You feel that we can share a laugh or
two every day and you want someone who can resonate with you. Bonus
points if you're kinda tall.
And you get the humor in my username my dog is in the kitchen
cooking with me, and not cooking dogs.
