Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm sure you've been bored to death by reading Generic Dating
Profile #523, so I'll save you from hearing about how I like to
read, walk on the beach, kiss puppies, etc.
Straight to the good stuff!
I was once stranded on an island.
I once won an 'Nsync dance contest with the routine from Bye, Bye,
My family was on a game show in the 80s and Bob Eubanks gave us a
I once won a karaoke contest by singing Girls Just Wanna Have
Now I'm taking singing lessons so I can sing for my mother and
grandmother as their christmas present (Neil Diamond for mom and
Frank Sinatra for grandma).
I started weightlifting just so I could one day do the dirty
I'm a huge Lakers fan, and I don't care how terrible we were this
year. I will never turn to the dark side (the Clippers...).
My worst first date ever lasted almost 24 hours and ended with me
sitting extremely confused through a catholic mass in Buenos
So enough about me; I'm here to meet you! As you can probably tell,
I enjoy people who have a zest for life, who have a desire to try
new things, and who want to explore/learn/laugh/etc. At the same
time, kindness, family, friends, reliability (I know, I know, how
boring!) are important to me.
My perfect day with a significant other would involve doing
something adventurous during the day (who wants to try trapeze!?),
something classy at night (I'm a dancer, so some tango maybe!),
home a little early to watch an episode of that netflix show we're
watching, and end the night with CENSORED CENSORED CENSORED
CENSORED until the swing breaks.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Daydreaming about being one half of the modern version of Fred
Astaire and Ginger Rogers
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Besides dance, I'm a pretty decent singer and guitar player (though
I need to practice more).
Buying plane tickets. I always need to have at least one in my
email. Sicily coming up soon, and then maybe Ireland!
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Apparently that I am a tour guide (I'm not). I get asked for
directions everywhere. I think it's the glasses.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Oxygen (aren't I original taking this literally!!??)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Why the world is how it is. Why people are as they are. How can we
improve things. Wondering if am I earning my time here.
Also, we have sesame seeds, but what the heck is a sesame?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Some recent Fridays: jazz bar, salsa dance, west coast swing
dancing, milonga (tango), contra dance, National Theater, shabbat
dinner (more social than religious for me), Disneyland, house
party, watching a movie with some friends, cooking a big meal for a
bunch of friends then playing Rock Band and Mario Kart on my old
school, still functioning, Nintendo 64.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I fully believe chivalry and romance are not dead. Learning tango I
was taught "you are the frame. she is the painting." I completely
support the feminist movement, and enjoy exploring boundaries in
dance (ask me about switch dancing!), but I am not afraid to admit
that I embrace many traditional "masculine" qualities. That said, I
love intelligent, strong, independent women who can challenge me
and push me - but if you'll get offended by me opening a door,
pulling out a chair, walking on the road side of the sidewalk, or
other such gestures, we won't work.
