Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hey there guys. I always never know how funny and sarcastic I
should be on these things, how much I should really say about me,
and how much of this is playing the on-line dating game. I reread
my profile recently and thought, hmmm maybe too much tongue in
cheek and too many sex references so I ll try to be more serious
and chaste. I am so much better when I meet people in person, but
hey, what the hell I am on OK and have a profile, so here
I am an active and "successful" guy with a great bunch of friends,
buddies and network of peers in my work, who keep me busy and
happy. I am on OK Cupid to meet some interesting people who I
usually don't see out and about (or maybe I do see you but we never
connected). I really don't have an agenda and have no expectations
except maybe meet some interesting people and have some good times,
on the way to meeting someone that might turn into something more
I'm very active. I play in the Gay Flag Football League and have
bowled and played dodgeball as well. Played sports (football,
wrestling, crew and track in field) throughout school and even
played intramural basketball in grad school but am a hack on the
courts. I love to ski. Love the outdoors, hiking, kayaking etc. I
travel a lot and have been to every continent except Australia and
Antarctica. I plan on going to Antarctica in the next 5 years
before global warming makes its impact.
While I love the outdoors and sports, I also love the city life.
Theater, art, museums, street fairs, dancing, parties. While I live
in Manhattan, I appreciate Brooklyn the Brooklyn scene and
definitely not a borough phone. I love to cook, eat and walk down
the street with food in my mouth.
Far from a prude and the physical aspects of life and love are
really important to me. Have you read "The Ethical Slut"? That
said, I am a relationship, romantic and faithful guy when I find
the one. I mean I am Greek.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am a self-employed consultant with a practice that focuses its
work on social justice issues for a variety of foundations,
organizations and campaigns. I am always planning my next great
project and my next great adventure while in the meantime looking
for whoever whatever may come my way. I write with one published
book under my belt and have taught as an adjunct in a number of
well known universities. I teach social change and social
movements. I have a relatively unconventional career and work-life
which allows me to travel and take breaks when I want, or work from
I like to combine hard work, my career, fun, sports and
friends/family. I have a great network of people in my life and
love to have them over for dinner and drinks, see them on the
weekend and evenings, and vacation with them. My friends and family
are very important to me.
