Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am an ambitious and energetic person and, admittedly, a total
nerd. I have a bright personality that I simply refuse to lose even
though I live in NYC. I am almost always up for anything (unless it
involves like bugs and snakes, I'm not much into them, but I do
like hiking). I love, love to laugh. I have an artsy-side, and was
professionally trained in ballet, and taking house dance classes
(to perform live soon!)
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am a lawyer at one of those big law firms (part of that ambition
thing). In some sort of odd way, I really enjoy my work, but I
definitely take out time to read non-law stuffs (non-fiction and
fiction - right now I'm on the hunt for my next book!) I also
returned to practicing yoga after a few years, which has been an
interesting and humbling experience. On Sundays, I sometimes fancy
myself as some sort of cook, and might even bring out some kitchen
appliance contraptions. I think I'm fairly decent at it, although I
don't try and rival actual chefs (I wouldn't say I'm a foodie, but,
well, I never turn down an amazing dinner). And other than taking
dance classes again, I'm also re-teaching myself to play piano
(work in progress for sure since I need to get the piano tuned!)
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I kick butt on the dance floor, and I'm a pretty good singer as
well and been known to rock some karoke. I'm also really good at
being observant and getting to know people. And generally I'm
pretty good at being super outgoing and ridiculous. I am not afraid
to speak my mind (which sometimes leads to interesting results!)
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
That I have short, funky hair that I change fairly frequently. I am
a bit spontaneous when it comes to my hair, and I enjoy having fun
with it (within reason, of course!)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I am not a big tracker of my favorites, but here's a sample:
recently finish up Kahneman's Thinking Fast and Slow - love that
for sure. I love Russian literature, pragmatist philosophy, really
enjoy Spanish red wine, big fan of Book of Mormon (the musical). In
terms of TV, I watch/have watched Mad Men and Battlestar Galactica
and Games of Thrones, Boardwalk Empire, etc. For movies, I loved
American Hustle and I really liked Her and Blue Jasmine. Princess
Bride is all time fav, as is Fear and Loathing and Office
And food - love food and love going out to eat. I also grew up in
Texas, so good southwest/Mexican/Tex Mex is always something I look
Music - love it. I have a thing for anything that sounds a bit like
the 80s new wave and/or the Smiths, so I love Interpol, Visage, and
We Have Band. But I love the 90s too, grunge as well (huge NIN fan
from that time period). Throw in some electronica, dance music, and
classical too (bit Philip Glass fan), and you'll have a sense of my
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
let's see...(1) friends and family; (2) books; (3) coffee; (4)
wine; (5) music!; and (6) a pen and paper so I could write things
This seems pretty basic, but then again, I have never understood
these types of lists.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
This is a really good question. I work a fair bit, so honestly work
does take up some space. But I also love music, a lot, and listen
to it as much as possible, so I spend a fair amount of time
thinking about (or obsessing) about the artists/bands I am super
into and when I might get to see them play. Beyond that, I am a
nerd, so I love thinking about a new and interesting idea, whether
that's philosophy, psychology, etc., etc. I like to quote
scientific studies. That's right, I like science. ;-)
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I can't remember the last time I had a typical Friday night...that
is a good question. Sometimes I'm out, and sometimes I'm home -
sometimes I work late, but the one constant is that I hope to have
a drink in my hand at some point in the evening.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Honestly, I'm not sure that I'm that private of a person, so I have
no idea what to put here...
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
Obvi if you're interested. But I should say something up-front - I
am busy and very energetic person. While I think a serious
relationship would be awesome (and I'd be willing to make it work
for the right person), my life is more conducive to something more
casual...although I could be convinced otherwise. ;-)
