Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
To be honest, I was always one of those people that really looked
down on online dating and said that I wouldn't do it. But then I
had heard of some of my friends doing it and in one case a really
great relationship had been started because of it so I figured I
would give it a try.
I'm from a relatively small town in the Poconos region of
Pennsylvania and I went to the main state university in PA (Penn
State). I moved to NYC for graduate school and I'm enjoying it.
It's really cool to be able to go to a new bar or restaurant every
I would say I'm looking for some one to have some fun with and make
the city feel a little smaller.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm currently pursuing a Master's in Nonprofit Management at The
New School and working part time. I'd like to work for a nonprofit
full time and maybe be a professor some day.
I'd like to stay in the city for around the next five years and
then try to get a good job in a smaller town. But you know, as they
say, man plans God laughs.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I would say that I'm good at understanding other people's point of
view. My major in college was Sociology and a lot of sociology is
about understanding different cultures or groups of people. I've
always been really averse to conflict and I would say I'm good at
talking things out before getting too angry.
Also tennis and basketball. I love to play sports with small groups
of friends as long as it doesn't get crazy competitive.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I think the first things people notice about me is that I'm
relatively quiet and pretty laid back. I like small talk and after
I know some one a little better I am more talkative but it's hard
for me to be really outgoing right away.
In terms of physical appearance the first thing people notice is
probably my glasses and my hair.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
In terms of tv shows I've been really into True Detective and House
of Cards lately. I also really like Archer, Louie, and Key &
I don't read as much as I would like to so my books list is pretty
embarrassing but I really liked 1984 and I've been listening to a
bunch of crime solving books by John Sandford on the subway
starring a interesting cop named Virgil Flowers.
In terms of movies i really like comedies and some sappy love
stories. Casablanca, Anchorman, Airplane, Sleepless in Seattle, 500
Days of Summer, and Gattaca are some of my favorites than I can
think of off the top of my head.
Music has always kind of been in phases for me but some bands I've
always liked are Counting Crows, Jack's Mannequin, Bon Iver,
Rancid, and the Rolling Stones.
Can't get enough Indian food since I moved to NYC. Pizza has to be
my overall favorite food though.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
coffee shops and diners
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
To be honest I spend a lot of time thinking about the future and
how to find my place in it.
I really like politics so often I will be thinking about different
types of policy solutions (gripping stuff, I know).
On a lighter note, I love comedy and enjoy thinking about why
things are funny. I really like standup comedy (Louis CK and Jim
Gaffigan are my favorite) and some times I will try to think up
jokes in my head. My friend recently tried out one of my jokes on
stage and it got some laughs I was pretty happy about that!
Also, I think space is fascinating.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I tend to go out either Friday night or Saturday and attempt (key
word being attempt) to get work done the other night. If i'm out
Friday night I'm usually out with a small group of friends drinking
at a small bar usually in either the Village or Brooklyn. I like
playing games (drinking or pool) while drinking with a small group.
I don't like bars that are too loud cuz to me the whole point of
going is to talk to the people you came with and blow off some
I've also been really wanting to get more into movies so I would
totally be down to stay in and watch a movie from time to time.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I kind of took this to mean embarrassing things that I'm willing to
put out there so some would be:
I really like smooth jazz and also country music.
I really like movies with Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks like Sleepless in
Seattle and You've Got Mail.
I thought Temple University was a Jewish school until I turned
I used to carry around a small bottle of axe deodorant when I was
in high school and spray it on myself whenever I was paranoid that
I smelled bad.
and also I hate clothing hangers.
