Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
On one leg: Grounded, naturally happy, kind, reliable,
adventuresome, intelligent, committed, sharp witted, and has
character. The rest may be commentary, but here it is anyway: I'm a
Jewishly committed and genuinely open minded man, though a healthy
skeptic (my father would be proud). Although a certified teacher of
meditation, am no vegetarian (though these days it has got to be
grass-fed as well as kosher--Michael Pollin, shall I send you the
bill?) Love playing guitar with and for people. I've been told that
I have the ability to make people feel at ease around me and that
I'm "disarmingly friendly." Transplanted from Los Angeles, and
having lived in Jerusalem and Denver, I feel strangely at home here
in Manhattan--like LA, this place is anything but "parve," and,
next to Jerusalem, the most stimulating place I've ever lived. I'm
driven to grow, explore, and be successful. So far, so good. I'm
spontaneous, but don't mind working out a plan. Love traveling. I
balance responsibility and passion. Love grilling Shabbat meals
with friends. A friend recently called me: An emotionally mature
version of the camp counselor you had a crush on in 8th grade and a
'sexy rabbi.' My dog Boychic and I are a team, but there's room for

Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.

I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Listening. Conversing. Imagining. Grilling. Cooking. Laughing at
myself. Playing Bim-Bam.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My eyes, or so I'm told. Then it's my dog. I'm a rabbi, play
guitar, am very easy to be with and am anything but a stereotype. I
take people by surprise.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You are intrinsically kind. You have a sparkle in your eye and
creativity in your spirit. You are deeply committed to something
important in your life. I don't care what that is, so long as
there's something you're passionate about. You strive for balance,
speak your mind, and prefer to laugh rather than let the veins pop
out of your neck when you feel like losing it. I'm looking for a
partner. You've got class and character. You can make me laugh, and
you love being a woman. Judaism informs some deep part of your
life. You appreciate tradition, and are not irrationally
fundamentalist. I don't think I have much of a "type" anymore, but
I tend to be drawn to skinny/slender women with long hair. My
Ezer-K'negdo, as I'm looking to settle down.
