Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I recently reactivated this thing because New York is dumb and
everything is hard. Hello!
I like to tell stories. I ride my bike a lot. I'm always hungry. I
can grow a beard in a week. I was a camp counselor for a million
summers. I play a made-up sport on Sunday afternoons in Prospect
Park. I really hate mayonnaise. I really love scary stories. I try
to make things good and make good things.
But really, I just want someone to play Spaceteam with.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a founding member of a theater company whose name comes from an
old Nickelodeon gameshow. I write plays and direct plays, and more
and more rarely, I'll act in plays.
I teach playwriting to undergraduate drama students at NYU.
I teach theater at a charter high school in Brooklyn.
Sometimes I sit at home in my undies and make websites for people.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Napping, pratfalls, talking passionately about things, making
sandwiches, eating sandwiches, Minesweeper, the NYT crossword, flip
cup, memorizing things, keeping my computer desktop really
organized, articulating how I feel about things over the
For balance, here are some things I'm bad at:
Talking on the phone, pretending to like things that I don't like,
juggling, riding my bike with no hands, getting to work when I
should be getting to work, singing (although I really love
The first things people usually notice about me

This question is BORING so I'm going to answer a different
Q: What's the best Juicy Juice flavor?
But honestly, probably my eyebrows? Or if I have a beard at the
moment, maybe my beard? Also, now that it's getting warm, I wear a
cool summer hat. So maybe that hat?

Help your potential matches find common interests.
Picking favorites is hard but if I had to:
-Infinite Jest (book)
-The Graduate (movie)
-Six Feet Under (show)
-Neil Young (music)
-The Salty Honey Pie from 4 + 20 Blackbirds (food)
If you asked me this question when I was in 7th grade, I would have
-Maniac Magee (book)
-Empire Records (movie)
-The Simpsons (show)
-The Red Hot Chili Peppers (music)
-My bubby's noodle kugel (food)
There are so many more things I like, though. So many more.
Recent stuff I've read/seen/experienced and been really into: The
Americans (almost finished season three), Rick and Morty,
Nightcrawler (best movie of 2014), If on a winter's night a
traveler, Soho Rep's production of An Octoroon, Hop Along's new
album "Painted Shut."
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
3. My bike
5. Good pillows
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The universe, "art", how did I get this subscription to Time Out
NY?, how will I get on The Amazing Race, scary stuff, fonts,
optimal laundry-doing times, I wish I could sing really well, how
much time it will take to get to where I need to go, who is writing
all the Craigslist missed connections, WHERE IS ALL MY MONEY??,
events from my past, the last episode of Breaking Bad, Vietnamese
sandwiches, how to get my pillow to stay cold on one side always,
"big art," movies that have time travel in them, mumblecore, Louis
Theroux, autobiographical graphic novels, David Berman,
rollercoasters, Neil DeGrasse Tyson's twitter feed, should I eat in
or order out?, how cool and weird it is that we all exist, etc.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I'd be happy if all my Friday nights resembled Elisabeth Shue's in
the movie "Adventures in Babysitting."
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I know all the words to every song from Les Miserables. I have an
unhealthy Popeye's addiction. I watch A LOT of reality television
and I will defend its merits to the death.
There. A few things.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You want a cool, honest-to-goodness connection with another human
being. You're a goofball who can be serious. You enjoy a good fart
joke. You laugh easily, often, and out loud. You like sharing the
things you love with people you care about. You can teach me
something weird. You can teach me something useful. You can sing
the Eagles' fight song.
Bonus points if the idea of all-you-can-eat gourmet tacos doesn't
gross you out.
