My self-summary
The older I get, the more I'm interested in other people. How do people make decisions about what kind of work to do, whom to marry, or whether to have children. I'm fascinated by the random forces largely that govern our lives. Given that randomness, how do you make decisions about how to spend your time, energy, and money? I've chosen to invest a fair amount of each in my two children, with whom I've built a close relationship.
What I’m doing with my life
Practicing tax law, hanging out with my kids playing cards or Rummykub or chess, surfing the internet looking at power laws, chaos theory, and 17th century history. Reading Commentary, the Atlantic Monthly, and City Journal. I also like hiking, bowling, miniature golf, farmers' markets, and, in limited doses, art fairs.
I’m really good at
Staying out of (serious) trouble. Grilling things (charcoal, not gas). Figuring people out (most people), and having fun with a wide variety of people.
The first things people usually notice about me
People usually don't notice anything about me at first.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
The Black Swan, Fooled by Randomness, Thinking: Fast and Slow, Up in the Air, The Power of Habit, Classic Rock, Indian food, Ethiopian food, sushi, coffee (I roast and grind my own beans), beer (unique, I know).
The six things I could never do without
coffee
Lebanese food
My kids
a car (or at least a mule. An air conditioned mule)
the internet (although apparently I did fine without it for the first 30 years of my life)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why people make the decisions they do. Why the windows in my car go down for no reason (actually, I did figure that one out: low battery voltage). How to help my kids be happy and successful adults. Tax law.
On a typical Friday night I am
playing chess with my son, exploring the nuances of high school social networks with my daughter, at a restaurant or bar unwinding with friends, sometimes on a date, or possibly staying late at the office to get some work done so I can dive into the weekend first thing Saturday morning.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I think people's reactions to this question are interesting. The question doesn't ask you to admit something very private; it asks you the most private thing you are willing to admit. I'm willing to admit that I have a 401(k) plan. That's private in the sense that it's not obvious to anyone who sees me on the street and is not a matter of public record, but it's also not intensely private.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 35–50
  • Near me
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
