Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I've been in the city for a little more than a year at this point.
Even though I love it, I'm still astounded that I still haven't
even heard of half of the bars, restaurants, etc. that my friends
mention. But I'm getting better. The upside is that there's still
tons to explore.
I tend to be pretty gregarious and outgoing once I've met people,
but I'm usually reluctant to be the first person to strike up a
conversation. My humor tends to be witty/sarcastic. Although my
friends have all sorts of different personalities, I usually do
better in relationships in which the other guy is more relaxed
and/or has a calming influence on me.
General interests: I'm a religious runner; a more casual cyclist; a
fan of baseball, football, and tennis; an arts enthusiast; a coffee
and beer connoisseur (OK, fine: snob); an avid traveler; and
something of a political junky.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I just started teaching law school and love it. I'm still trying to
learn the city (but so far, so good). And I can't figure out what
my next running goal should be, but I'll get that sorted out soon
enough. Right now, those are enough to keep me occupied for the
short- and medium-terms.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
running, foreign languages, making pancakes (not hard, but my
friends are always impressed), being a good friend - I should
probably add "law" to the list if that's what I'm teaching, right?
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Hmm, I guess my eyes and my wit. (People don't typically mention
what they notice first.)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: pretty much anything by Dostoevsky and Kafka; I've also been
reading a fair number of political biographies recently, and I've
enjoyed almost all of them.
Movies: I enjoy movies, but I'm not a huge film buff. Kudos to
Netflix for helping me catch up on some of the classics that my
friends chastise me for not having seen.
TV: Dexter, Mad Men, Modern Family
music: my favorite Pandora stations are classical stations, Green
Day, and Queen
food: Thai, Italian, Tex-Mex, but when I'm hungry (which is often)
I'm not very picky
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
In no particular order:
(2) loved ones (family and friends)
(3) my super-comfortable bed
(4) running shoes
(5) sun (it improves my mood by leaps and bounds)
(6) words with more than three syllables (at a party, a friend
challenged me to use words with no more than three syllables; I
basically sat around in silence)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
where this whole academic thing is taking me (and, at the moment,
the upcoming election)
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I'm not sure that there's a typical Friday for me. Sometimes I like
going out with friends, bar-hopping or going to a concert, and just
soaking up New York. Other times, I'm happy to ease into my
recliner with a good meal and the latest delivery from Netflix.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have a running commentary going on in my head. After two beers,
I'll probably admit a lot more stuff than that.

Delete the "if," and the sentence works.
I am usually attracted to guys who are thin and/or athletic with
good smiles and a well-developed sense of humor. Beyond that,
