Until I joined this site, I never realized that there were so many
guys in NY who "love life", are "down to earth" and "take full
advantage of everything (fill in the blank - life, the City, etc.)
has to offer." Apparently lots of you see the "glass as half full",
"love to laugh" and "love to travel." And most of you like to
either stay in or go out in addition to being comfortable in jeans
or a tux. This is good news! Most of the guys I've dated have not
been like this, so I would be excited to meet you!
What I’m doing with my life
I'm still trying to figure it out. However, I did just make a major
change - after 20 years, left practicing law and bought a doggie
I’m really good at
Spelling, grammar, Words with Friends, white water rafting, being
on time, giving thoughtful gifts, being a good friend.
The first things people usually notice about me
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Atlas Shrugged, anything by Edith Wharton, anything by
Michael Crichton. As an aside, I am ashamed to admit that I started
Fifty Shades of Gray but am proud to admit that I didn't make it

Movies: There are so many - a few are Apocolypse Now, Office Space,
Spinal Tap, Moonstruck, anything by Tarantino.
Shows: Generally, I like going to the opera (favorite is Turandot).
Broadway-wise I love Hair (grew up on that music), Avenue Q, Wicked
(it's cheesy I know, but I really liked it). I see lots of shows.
Most recently, I saw Baba Brinkman's Evolution of Rap (awesome!)
TV-wise, I watch Chelsea Lately, John Stewart, The Colbert Report,
Breaking Bad, Mad Men, Fringe and Law & Order SVU reruns.
Music: Most except jazz. I have tried to develop an appreciation
for it but still think it sounds like musical barf. Am happy to
have you try to change my mind. I generally listen to hip hop, pop,
Food: Pretty much everything. Except innards and rubbery or slimy
food. I have a particular weakness for cheese.
The six things I could never do without
The ability to be physically active (After a life-changing ski
accident - I'm fine now but wasn't for quite a while - I appreciate
Something to read
Great wine and/or vodka
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why people don't give up their seats to elderly and disabled people
on the subway.
On a typical Friday night I am
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I may not like you as much as my dog Moo - she's known me longer,
is probably more loyal than you are and has never sent me mixed
signals. But I definitely have room in my heart for a significant
other, especially one that won't pee on the rug.
You should message me if
You feel like it!
And you should know that great teeth and good grammar really do it
