Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I’m a gay Korean boy from Connecticut, so much of my time is spent
dancing to Gangnam Style while wearing as much L.L. Bean as
possible. In the rare moments when this is not my life, I spend a
lot of time with my friends over an assortment of New Yorky
activities – waiting in line at Ippudo, running in Central Park,
day drinking in Central Park, talking about visiting more museums,
shopping sample sales, discussing apartment situations, blaming my
tardiness on that damn [F/G/L/1/6] train.
I spent my post-college years living in Asia, first in Tokyo and
then in Hong Kong. Tokyo is amazing because it is endless, weird,
and packed with seriously fun stationery. Hong Kong is amazing
because it is a genuinely global city (and hopefully will remain
so) and you can buy beer at 7-11 for $3.
Eventually, I moved back to America to become more educated, spend
more time with my family, and understand television humor. So I got
my MBA three years ago, allowing me to take on the official role of
check-splitter at group dinners.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work at a real estate development firm, where we buy, develop and
redevelop buildings. I love the mix of finance, architecture and
urban planning and would love to develop a major building in New
York one day.
Outside of work, I like staying physically active. I go to the gym
regularly, run along the East River, do those overpriced group
classes every once in a while, and undertake larger athletic
endeavors when there is an exciting trip attached (i.e. mountain
climbing, scuba diving).
Otherwise, I watch a ton of movies, read a lot of news, read real
books as part of my book club, trade stocks, and eat out.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
- Making friends. I'm an only child, so my friends have always
played a very important role in my life and I love 'em for
- Obstacle courses
- Picking restaurants

In general, I like going out. Gay bars, dive bars, hotel bars, jazz
bars, whatever. As long as it's not a sports bar, I'm down for it.

rounds of Internet messaging. I'm more relationship-oriented, but
open to fun as well.
