My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
If I had to have a motto, I suppose it would be "That which doesn't kill me, makes me strong." I'm thinking about putting it on my tombstone, but I'm not sure people would get the joke. You got it, though. Right?

To provide a brief description, I have hair, a reasonably flat stomach, I speak in complete sentences and I don't live with my mother. I hope that counts for something.

Stable, relatively sane and gainfully employed in a job I actually like. Not rich, not poor and not particularly concerned about it.

Have been told by women whose taste and intelligence I trust that I'm not difficult to look at, though I'm honestly undecided. In good physical shape, I hate working out but feel that having worked out is truly sublime. I feel that way about a lot of things, really.

I like women who like guys who occasionally pull their hair when they kiss them. Among other attributes. Pliant, moderately dissolute a huge plus.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Day job as an editor at a financial news service; freelance magazine writing, covering photography, technology, medicine, and other subjects; finishing a novel; improving rusty photographic skills left over from former life as a professional photographer
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Writing stuff and taking pictures. Allegedly a wonderful conversationalist, too.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Hmmmm.... Maybe you should ask them.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Gatsby, by Fitzgerald; Demian, by Hesse; Portrait of the Artist, by Joyce; Hells Angels by Hunter Thompson; Last Exit to Brooklyn, by Hubert Selby; anything by Graham Greene, John le Carre, Dashiel Hammet, Hemingway, Salinger, Henry Miller, and three or four thousand others. Oh, and Goodnight Moon.

Movies: Orpheus, by Cocteau; anything with Dietrich; most documentaries; most film noir, and anything by Hitchcock, Billy Wilder, Kubrick, Scorsese, the Cohen Bros, Terrence Malick, Almodovar, Wes Anderson, Spike Jonze, John Huston, Fritz Lang, or Woody Allen before his brain fell out.

Food: Chili, and any recipe from Tuscany

Music: It's easier to say what I don't like -- Lawrence Welk, Barry Manilow and anything played while you're waiting on hold for tech support. They're piping the same stuff into Hell.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Horribly overpriced drinks in the lobby of the Algonquin Hotel

My motorcycle (what's left of it)
Women in very high heels

Mozart
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Nuclear non-proliferation. Yeah, right.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Somewhere else
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

I don't recycle. And I'm not ashamed.

For the rest you'll have to sift through all those nosy questions they asked when I joined up. The answers are all public.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You really, really want to and might possibly be interested in meeting for a drink and a few hours of pleasant conversation. Normally, I'd suggest the aforementioned horribly overpriced drink in the lobby of the Algonquin Hotel. Unfortunately, they've "renovated" the place (the Oak Room is history, alas) and it now looks uncomfortably like a Doubletree Inn. So I'm open for suggestion, although I do know a few reputable places we can meet. Several disreputable ones, too, but is that really a good idea for a first date? Bonus points if the answer is Yes.
