Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm my own worst critic and don't much like talking about myself,
but... I'm a college-educated, single male in Brooklyn. More? I'm a
history buff and fascinated (if not a bit disgusted) with the
current political landscape. I am also a huge sports fan (but don't
let it get in the way of important things), I enjoy photography and
taking long walks (no, really!).
Most importantly... my family and friends mean everything to
(PS - I actually don't like being called "Joey", but I allow my
nieces and nephew to do it... how could I not? And besides, it was
my judgement that, when my nieces were born, every little girl
should have an Uncle Joey From Brooklyn.)
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am trying to get better every day. I am fully employed and
consider myself pretty well balanced. Of course, we can all keep
learning and growing.
I also find myself losing faith in OKCupid. Care to restore it?
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
As I said, I'm my own worst critic, so I'll let you decide. I'm a
pretty good conversationalist, though.
The other night after counselling three different people on their
jobs, I also found out I give good advice (and have more patience
than I thought).
I guess you could say I'm a bit like a dog... I'm fiercely loyal,
very attentive, protective of those I care about, and if you show
me some love and trust, I'll give it back ten times over.
I have other skills... but I'll wait to share those as I don't want
to sound cocky! :)
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Uhhh... I shave my head and have been told I have nice eyes. Oh,
and... I'm short (5'6"). *damnit*
(Also, if you work with me you'll notice I tend to laugh at
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Good heavens - too much information to include here. I don't
discriminate with regard to entertainment. My favorites that I can
Music: Led Zeppelin
Movie: It's a Wonderful Life
TV: Family Ties, Cheers, Family Ties (old); Big Bang Theory, The
Blacklist, Grey's Anatomy (current)
Books: No "favorites" - I like historical biographies
Food: Italian (and yes, I know how to cook)
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Family and friends are most important to me, but not "things". So
(in no particular order)...
Something to write with/on
My Big Puffy Red Chair
My Nook (it's new and makes reading on the subway much
My DSLR camera (affectionately known as "my baby")
I'll think about number six...
(In truth, I grew up with a "packrat" (these days known as
"hoarders"), so I have gone the other direction and have very
little use for "things".)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I think a lot (I'm a writer at heart and a Virgo, after all), but I
can't pinpoint one thing. My mind is always active.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Having dinner or drinks with friends or home watching a ball game.
(Then I sleep late on Saturday.)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
One of my favorite quotes: "Tell me all your secrets and I'll tell
you most of mine." (Brownie points if you tell me where that comes
Ok - I'll share two dirty little secrets - I like watching American
Idol and So You Think You Can Dance *shame*
