Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Moved to New Orleans from Manhattan for new job in June. Am
originally from Seattle and have lived up and down the east coast
(Manhattan, DC, Boston) since college on the east coast.
I like going to alternative/indie music shows, parties, running
clubs, waterskiing, good restaurants, and traveling.
Have tested INTP/ENTP on Meyers Briggs -- but am fairly outgoing
and socially comfortable in new situations. I like to think that my
friends and family think of me as someone who is considerate, kind,
and generous as a person, putting them first before other demands
in life. That matters to me more than anything else.
For occupation, I work in mergers & acquisitions for a large
telecom company. In addition to interests mentioned above, I spend
other free time in a couple of social running clubs or working out
(am conscious about staying in shape -- former competitive, Varsity
Div I track (distance) and cross-country athlete), as well as
traveling to see friends and family.
What am I looking for? In terms of qualities, living in the moment
and being a fun person is an important attribute for me, after
being a warm person who is considerate and kind, thinking of others
often. After that, good conversation, listening, and sense of
humor. My date should know how to have a good time, and be past
playing games. Straightforward and honest are big pluses. Finally
-- drive, passion, and intelligence are pluses. Long list I know,
and ultimately I'm looking for a great person with all of their
flaws and imperfections, and not a perfect list.

I look 33, not 43, but current younger looks were paid for by
growing up as Butters from South Park (looking at age 13 like I was
in kindergarten). Also, my smile

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I once attempted to playfully and privately poke fun at George
Stephanopolous in a gym, telling a nearby female friend that
"Snuffaluffagus" (moniker for Stephanopolous) was totally working
the chicks (when he was younger), only for my female friend to
inform me with a happy smirk that he was right next to me and in a
not very amused way just heard every word of that.....*busted*
