Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am extremely confident in my ability to survive - and even thrive
- in a post-apocalyptic world. Zombies, nuclear holocaust, virus,
you name it - you'll want to be on my team.
Ok, fine. You probably need to know more about me, given the low
likelihood of an apocalypse. I grew up outside of Pittsburgh (but
across the border in Ohio), lived in Columbus, Ohio for many years,
then moved to Charlotte in 2005. I love it here, and don't ever
want to face another Northern winter.

I'm an attorney, and I work for a big law firm HQed in NYC. Our
office here in Charlotte specializes in capital markets and
structured fin....zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz...... As Nate Ruess so
aptly puts it, "So this is it? I sold my soul for this? Washed my
hands of that for this? I miss my mom and dad for this?" Don't hold
it against me, though. I was recently introduced to someone who
said, "You don't look like a lawyer." I wasn't sure if I should be
flattered or insulted. I think I was just confused. What does a
lawyer look like?
I appreciate a person who knows the difference between "your" and
"you're", even if they don't always take the time to get it right
in a text message.
I am crazy about animals, and a sucker for a stray. I'm starting to
log countries as a result of my recent commitment to world travel -
so far I can check off Canada, Mexico, Costa Rica, the Bahamas,
Italy, New Zealand and Australia. Next up is France this summer.

What I’m doing with my life

I’m really good at

making people laugh, telling stories, following detailed
instructions, trouble-shooting electronics, installing ceiling
fans, over-thinking things, word-smithing and being skeptical.
Also, using sugar packets to shim restaurant tables so that they
don't wobble while we eat.
The first things people usually notice about me

is that I look much younger than I am and, apparently, that I don't
look like a lawyer. See "My self-summary", paragraph 4, above.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I read a lot, mostly fiction. I enjoy going to see almost any
movie. My iPod contains mostly current alternative, classic
alternative, and classic rock. I like all types of ethnic foods,
especially Middle Eastern, Asian and Mexican.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.

fresh fruit, and a hot shower.

You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
- you're interested in meeting a thoughtful, charming polymath who
will make you laugh;
- you have a foreign accent (especially Kiwi, Aussie or Irish);
- you have an interesting name.
You should probably not message me if you reference God or Jesus in
your profile. Having faith in and of itself isn't a problem for me
- I do believe in a force out there that is greater than us - it
surrounds us and penetrates us... it binds the galaxy together
(bonus points for you, if you can identify that quote), but if your
religious faith is a very important part of your life and/or you
attend church regularly and would expect me to, we're probably not
going to be a good fit.
