My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I moved to the city a year and a half ago, and it was truly one of the most awesome decisions I've ever made. I haven't eaten nearly enough pancakes though! Still, been having an awesome time, but still looking for suggestions and new ideas of awesome things to do here, though I've been been keeping busy. Still...suggestions, please!?

I think I've decided that my new hobby will be finding new hobbies! Wait, does GroupOn count as a hobby?

Life here is awesome, and dating has been fun, but I'm ready to meet a partner in crime to share it all with. That doesn't mean I want to stop having awesome experiences, I just want some company along the ride! I am very happy to be living my life right now, and want to share that with someone right now! Also, I want to never write another paragraph as corny as that one ever again (read on, the rest can't be nearly as bad...hopefully!)

I appreciate Seemless Web and Pandora. I like that the internet exists. I love running in Central Park, even if it is way less frequent than I wish. I also am lately obsessed with taking the stairs in any tall building I visit/work in. I don't eat a lot of junk food, but was bummed when Hostess filed for bankruptcy (childhood memories die hard). I like scrabble and staying out a little later than usual drinking with friends, but I have great credit and am very ambitious career-wise. Lover of chocolate, music, quality TV and movies. I visit IMDB often. Take me to some bar trivia, I will help you win, I know some veeeery random things. I appreciate grammar, so misspelling one of the previous words was actually hard on me. I enjoy running and take the stairs over elevators whenever I can lately. I rock cross-word puzzles and logic games, and enjoy girls that laugh at bad jokes, puns, and sarcastic remarks. Big fan of comedy. I'm always looking for a new hobby or experiences, and people to join me in such activities. Sometimes I do standup, lately I randomly do Improv. I am getting back into art and painting, and realizing I'm kinda still pretty awesome at it. I enjoy a tasty beer (big fan of IPA's, lets go to a brewery!). Sometimes I write plays, sometimes I do stand-up. I love the city. Dating and meeting people has been awesome, but I'm all about meeting someone kickass to date seriously, because I'd love to experience all this fun awesome city/world/life stuff with someone else, and I am looking for a partner to join me in some crazy adventures. Did I mention in the absence of a real plan, I'd love to just relax at a random dive bar, abuse the juke box, and just talk all night. Oh, and people watching, writing, creating, and composing sarcastic comments and rants are def on the menu. Also, sexual chemistry/openness and physical compatibility are also really important to me. I'm basically a lot easier to get to know in person than on a computer....just saying. Though having an iPhone helps. :)

Also, kind of on a kick to become a better person and all that lame jazz...I think it is good to strive for self-improvement and that fun stuff every now and then. I mean, better than having the exact opposite goal is what I say! Though that would be an interesting endeavor!

PS: My office gets a lot of sunlight. If I text you and I tell you excitedly that.. "I have lots of widows!!!!!"....please chalk it up to a bad spell-check mishap. Just saying.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I haven't eaten pancakes in awhile but I miss it. I'm always striving to feel inspired and creative, and love connecting and having fun with new people. I code, think logically, and can predict the future behaviors of others around me to a frightening degree of accuracy (seriously, ask me about it). I am obsessed with hearing about other people's jobs; I always find that interesting. I work at a pretty famous institution and I use a combination of crazy logic, strategy, and sexy coding methods to make this place more money. Made a upward career shift recently but think I need to shoot for another leap just to keep things interesting! My friends are very important to me, yet I am also very interested in expanding my circle of friends. Every couple years I immerse myself in a different artistic medium, and right now I'm trying to figure out what the next "thing'"I want to try. Right now it seems to be a tug of war between Improv comedy, sketch writing, and 3D modeling and fine art. Thinking of expanding my physical hobbies as well. Wondering if I'd enjoy tennis...never played but curious. Used to swing dance and kinda am curious to get try that again. Mostly I just want to find someone great to try all this stuff out with. Also, I've been itching to travel again, hardcore, so looking for some company on that front as well! Lots of vacation time coming up!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Making people laugh. Creating something where nothing existed before; I've written/directed plays, performed standup comedy, produced art and developed computer/software programs. I can make a mean grilled cheese. I know some excellent wine bars, or craft beer spots. I can walk into a party and tell you who will hook up with who. I can talk whiney people out of complaining (too much). I am into showing the person that I am with that I care about them emotionally and sexually, but...you know...in kind of a cool, not-so-lame-all-the-time kinda way. I can find a fun and random date for us. Also, you'd be surprised at how many famous people I don't know. Like...there are a LOT of famous people I don't know. We should discuss.

Also, I'm quick with a sarcastic jab if that's your thing...

I don't know any magic tricks...so if you hate magic, I'm your guy.

I also basically kick ass in Chess, Scrabble, and Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon. Just saying...
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Hmmm...not sure. My Eyes? Cool glasses? Eclectic T-shirts? I stole all your good OK Cupid profile lines? I'm eating pancakes at midnight or at least trying to get to some? I'm pretty obsessed with my iPhone....actually, that is probably one of the first things people notice.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
iPhone
Sarcasm
Spellcheck
Readily available coffee on a weekday morning
Intelligent and Genially fun and free-flowing Conversation
People that point out that your shoelaces are untied and act like they just saved your life.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How much easier and more efficient my life would be if I were a morning person. Also, which profile picture I should make my "main" picture! Yeah....life is hard... :)
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Trying to catch up with friends. Drinking quality beer or a glass or wine. Friday nights haven't been 'typical' lately.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
If you have a cool quote, line, or reference in your profile, I'll probably steal it. I'm not proud of this.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You dig my profile and want to find out more about me; you enjoy intelligent, silly, or sarcastic conversation; you want to hang out and chat in person; you enjoy grabbing a drink and making fun of people; you are intrigued. I'm more easy to get to know in real life than on the computer I think, and I'm pretty awesome.
