I'm a decent, considerate, artsy/musical, intelligent/discerning
guy, looking for someone with whom to have fun, share love and
support. Ideally I'd like to create a family, or be part of one, in
whatever way that works. (Got questions? please ask!)
I'm looking for a woman who wants to be in a relationship, is
considerate of others, and reasonably responsible. If you're
particularly religious, drink habitually, or smoke, probably not a
I enjoy being in nature, playing non-violent sports like tennis,
and I appreciate fine cuisine, music, and art. I have a dry and/or
silly sense of humor, and can have a bit of an edge at times.
Certainly more Jon Stewart than Vin Diesel. I might be more honest
than most people, and sometimes have to remind myself to engage my
filters, but I also need honesty in relationships.
I've been told that in person I look better than my photos (I was
flattered, but not sure I believed it). Check out the photos'
captions for a date stamp.
Other stuff: I enjoy singing and playing musical instruments, but
only occasionally perform professionally. Sometimes watch TV. I
still read books occasionally, and finish most of them eventually;
although the more technology has crept into my life (I'm talking
about you, iPad...and you, laptop...and now you, iPhone...), the
less literature I consume.
My agnosticism and buddhist leanings belie my Jewish upbringing.
I'm the child of a Holocaust survivor. I sometimes meditate at a
Buddhist temple. NOT religious.
I have loved and been loved, yet sometimes love is not enough to
make a relationship work. I am seeking the relationship that
One more thing...I haven't yet perfected a method of discerning
compatible "chemistry" by reading anyone's self-description or
analyzing a series of photos. Until then, meeting in person and
spending some time together seems to be the best way to figure
things out. (In other words, if we find each other interesting,
please let's make a date.) I welcome any feedback.
What I’m doing with my life
Considering modification to my career path, currently pursuing a
post-masters certificate at a local university.
Counseling and music. I help people learn, grow, and like
themselves better. Then I try to do the same for myself. Oh yes,
I'm also looking for an epic (or compatible) romantic relationship,
and being part of a family.
I’m really good at
Being a good friend, talking, listening, playing music and singing,
analyzing social interactions, delivering a joke with a straight
face, missing the basket, and seeing the glass as half-full AND
half-empty. Also fairly good at frisbee, pool, table tennis, and
The first things people usually notice about me
Maybe that I punctuate well, and use emoticons to indicate
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Spike Jonze's "Her." Louie, Moonrise Kingdom, Flight of the
Conchords, Lonesome Dove, Love in the Time of Cholera, classics I
haven't read yet, Cole Porter, JCS, 70's Bowie, XPN's Sleepy
Hollow, Shark Tank, documentaries, something new and different,

The six things I could never do without
Friends, family, movement/exercise, food and water, music, quiet
time; adventure, safety, belonging, responsibility, purpose, and
humor; Love. Yes, I know that's more than six.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
my future, my past, other people, food, music, money...and also, I
wonder who you might be.
On a typical Friday night I am
Spending time with friends watching a movie, going to dinner,
playing a game or an instrument, surfing the web, seeing a live
performance. On a bad Friday night I will be looking at this
website, cursing my fate. Please, no more bad Friday nights. :)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Nothing today. Probably a lot if we get along well.
OK something happened today I feel like sharing: the news headline
read "Tyson Recalls Chicken Nuggets," and my brain processed this
as Mike Tyson reminiscing about chicken nuggets.
You should message me if
You want a loving, fun, life-long relationship, or a date. You
express your thoughts and feelings in mostly healthy ways. You are
not selfish. You look fine without makeup. You don't require
alcohol on a regular basis. No matter how sweet your pet is, he/she
is not your favorite person. You've read my profile and looked at
my answers, and think we could be a good match.
