Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Note: If you "like" me or rate my profile highly or whatever,
please do message me. It can't hurt. I am not a A-List subscriber
and I'd like to circumvent some of the silliness of guessing who
did what based on who visited my profile. Its eh.
My name is Nick. It's short for nickname, because that is not in
fact my name. I'm on here every once in a while but if you message
me I will get it and respond asap, yay smartphones.
I am Jewish and being Jewish is very important to me. That said, I
tend to have a rather different perspective on what being jewish
means to me than most denominations typically express.
I guess the big ones are kosher and shabbat. So,
1) I keep a kosher kitchen, because I like hosting friends and
being able to cook for them. I do not keep kosher outside of my
home. Or I did when I had a kitchen. I recently moved and am no
longer of my domain. It is very sad. So sad kittens cry out of
2) My idea of shabbat is sharing a nice meal with some friends. I
try to make this happen every week; it doesn't always work out but
Some fun facts about me would have to include that I have often
been called a nerd. I tend to agree, though I will say, that
"nerd," like any label, fails to fully describe who I am.
I also used to go to this swing dancing club and really enjoyed it.
I wouldn't mind doing that again. I do drink, though rarely and in
moderation. My body can't quite handle that sort of intense abuse
anymore. College happened and it was great, but I think that's over
and done with. Now I suffer in grad school.
I tend to play a fair bit of League of Legends when I am able and
love sci-fi films/books/tv.
My favorite date ever was when I went to a Thai restaurant and
brought/played a board game, Settlers of Catan.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Im currently a grad student at NYU pursuing an M.S. in Public
Relations. I am also looking for a job. Because rent.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I am pretty darned good at writing. Better than many, possibly
most, but I am not the best of them all, not by a long shot.
I am also good at listening and making others feel comfortable. I
find myself having to do this more often than you'd likely expect
and I do enjoy it.
I'm pretty good at disagreeing without offending anyone. The trick
is to indicate understanding of the other's perspective and simply
state "I disagree" and follow it up by validating their
I'm also pretty good at meeting strangers and making single serving
friends (reference to the movie Fight Club - Airplane scene). The
trouble is that very often this new friend wants to continue to
develop a friendship via social media and I'm faced with the
choice. Sometimes it can be a hard choice to make.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
This is a hard question to answer, I've never actually asked
someone let alone known for certain what their thoughts were the
first time they met me. I think I will flatter myself in this next
paragraph and be a bit silly.
The very first thing people notice about me is how much I remind
them of their dream the night beforehand, in which the Fates told
them they would meet a fellow who's sweat turns to gold upon mixing
with the summers first dew.
I remind them of this dream because I look like the guy who was
carrying the Fates luggage. They were going on vacation and you
were their last appointment; it was a nightmare. (Heh. See what I
did there? Hehehehe)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
- I encountered the book, How I Became Stupid and really enjoyed
it, though the ending was lame.
- My favorite movie is probably Horsey. It's a candadian film and I
highly recommend it. I also refuse to watch it again; it's a good
memory and I don't want to risk ruining it.
- My favorite TV show is probably The West Wing.
- My mother makes this cows tongue recipe on special ocasions and
it is really delicious.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I've compiled a couple different lists that are all more or less
completely untrue. But then, I don't really think this list was
meant to be the most literal.
1) people, privacy, water, food, toilet paper/tissues, and my
2) the internet, chocolate, alcohol with friends, star wars, hair,
and the occasional coffee high
3) ice cream, vanilla coke, bagels, bug zappers, last years
textbooks and 24 hour bodegas.
4)coffee, sleep, more coffee, cereal & milk, more cofee, heart
palpitations - I really dont know what I'd do without these.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
1) I spend time trying to figure out if someone likes me or if my
feeling for someone are reciprocated. I have some trouble with
2) Where else can I send my resume?
3) I spend some time every now and again to think exclusively about
myself, a general check-up with some time to focus on whatever
particular thing is disturbing my equilibrium.
4) How can I meet more people?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Hosting a meal at home, or at a shabbos meal somewhere ro else just
relaxing and taking some personal time. Lately, I've been writing a
bit too, yay procrastination (for assignments due saturday
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

I lived with two girls. One of them was extremely passive
aggressive and, over the last few months, caused me a lot of
stress. Thank god that's over. The other was an excellent roommate,
if given to rely on homeopathic remedies slightly more than the
Some people think living with girls is better while others say the
In my opinion, its all the same thing.
