I'm a writer, living in NYC. I live uptown in Inwood but spend most of my time further downtown. I've been (and still am I guess?) a little hesitant about the whole online dating thing, but I was also really opposed to online music because I thought I'd miss browsing through Tower Records, but as it turns out, downloading music is super convenient.
Before I filled out this profile stuff, I answered 25 questions, which is really an infinite amount of questions, I found out. The computer algorithm, or whatever it is, kept telling me to answer more decisively (I forget the exact wording - but basically I guess I was too neutral and not opinionated enough). So then I started being a hard-ass with the questions. I think I answered 160 of them. I'm not sure if I agree with all of my answers.
I have a cat. She was sitting outside my apartment one night a few months ago, inside the building and outside my door. I gave her water and put up a sign in the building. No one claimed her so here she is. She's not very bright, but pretty sweet. I call her Dot.
