Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Like every guy on this site ever, I traveled, I went to school, and
I heart dogs. Heart them. What makes me different?
I was born at a very young age. I'm an Israeli-turned-native
Washingtonian. Cake is more delicious than pie, given the right
cake/frosting ratio. I'm friendly to people and bugs alike. I
already chose my future childrens' names: for a boy, Mangerine; for
a girl, Delightra. Although I'm not spiritual, my life is driven by
strong ideals: I work hard, love a lot, and put my family and
friends above everything else.
I'm sweet, curious, and sometimes a bit silly once I get to know
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a research scientist who builds robots. I love that I can
explain my esoteric, technical job to a five year old. My job is
part mad scientist, part Tom Hanks in the movie Big. I love my
robots (currently Domino and Marzipan) and I hope they love me too.
Who am I kidding they have to, I programmed them that way. When I'm
not doing research, I spend my weekends volunteering for Habitat
For Humanity (careful, that's a load bearing poster!), or working
on my website at my second home aka Starbucks.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Buying stuff off the TV.
I have a Sham-wow (so-so), a Magic Bullet (a-MAZING), a Swivel
Sweeper (did you know the area behind the toilet can get dirty??),
and a Juice Tiger (it could juice a hockey stick). I know, I have a
problem--I'm a sucker for "easy payments"
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
From far away: I look a bit like Elijah Wood.
A bit closer: I'm probably doing something silly. Or tripping over
myself and trying to make it look like an impromptu experimental
A LOT closer: Remnants of childhood freckles. But be forewarned,
you have to be pretty close so I better be pretty fond of you!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I'm nothing like these people ------------------------->
Books: I read.
Movies/shows: I watch (only occasionally)
Music: All the time!
Food: Now we're talking! Really now, does anybody care what books,
movies, and music a random stranger likes? Food is the universal
language though, and if you like me we'll be eating a lot of yummy
food together. Especially if it involves a culinary torch (one of
my above mentioned TV purchases!).
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1) Chai tea
2) Tai chi
3) Bustin' mad rhymes!
4) Making lists
5) Never finishing lists I start
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How to make myself a better person. It sounds corny, but hear me
out. I've got a list of 101 goals to complete in 1001 days which
I've been slowly but surely making progress on. One of these days
I'll have an organized closet, be able to drive stick, and eat a
peanut butter and jelly sandwich (or what the British call "a
breaddystack of nut-gum and fruit spleggings").
Email me if you have knowledge that you want to trade. I can show
you how to how to make a really good pesto if you can teach me how
to sketch things without it looking like a child drew it. For
pretty much anything I'll teach you calculus, the most sensual of
the mathematical branches (try writing out the integral of e^xy
without blushing. See? Sexy!).
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
After a long week I love low-key Friday nights with friends.
Shabbat dinners, netflix nights, or visiting my folks is always
fun. Saturday nights are far more irresponsible and foolish.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Naturally on a "dating" site (there, I said it), people only write
good things about themselves. I've read through a lot of
profiles—many of them sound like they're an OKCupid adaptation of
Sex and the City. While I'm not the antithesis of [character of the
week], I am imperfect:
• Sometimes I like being the little spoon. I call this a
• One time I poured Capri Sun into a glass.
• I can never get the first pancake to come out right.
• I'll forget your favorite flower. Every time. But I'll still buy
• I'll probably forget your birthday too; the only birthdays I've
ever remembered are my brother's and sister's. But give me a nudge
to remind me, k? I'll surprise you with misshapen pancakes and
imperfect flowers. :)
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're amazing, and looking for somebody equally amazing to laugh
at your jokes and tell you how great you look in those jeans.
Ideally you're Jewish or willing to learn about Jewish culture and
traditions (and I'm pretty flexible on what that means).
You're in the market for a quest. My bucket list includes building
the world's biggest sandwich, and opening a restaurant called "What
the Hell is This!?".
