Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'd love to say something about myself, but wouldn't you rather
make your own impression?
Fine. I've never lost my keys. I'm joking somewhere around 80% of
the time, but I wouldn't mind meeting someone willing to get
serious. I'm also pretty sincere for someone once described as
"drier than July 4 in southwest Egypt."
I'm often told that I don't seem like I'm from New York (although I
am). I love this city, but that's about the highest compliment I
could hope to receive.
Oh, and when I recently asked a date how I was different from my
profile, she paused and said, "I thought you'd be ... meaner." So
sorry to disappoint.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Born and raised in Manhattan; living on the UES. In college I was
an English major, baseball player and the singer in a cover band
that would gig in bars and frats. Today I correct grammar, play
soccer (goalie, which of course means I'm very responsible, and
good with my hands) and sing in a choir.
I'm a copywriter at an ad agency. I'll spare you a Mad Men joke. I
love what I do.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
A) Cooking my own tomato sauce, b) singing, especially at
inappropriate times, c) complaining about terrible sports
announcers, d) knowing the capital of every country, e) Minesweeper
and f) correcting grammar errors.
Jeez, those are my skills? The hell have I been doing?
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Probably that I'm white as a ghost? But what I get from new people
the most is definitely, definitely how sarcastic I am. Which, I
know I said I'd show rather than tell, but just know that we're
aware of the problem and we're working on it.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Movie: "Shakespeare in Love" - Unabashedly.
Shows: I watch a lot of sports, but I've been known to enjoy
watching Stacy and Clinton have a laugh about how much better
looking they are than the poor woman they brought on their show. I
like when they go into her closet and theatrically trash
everything. Like you'd waste that many good hangers.
Music: I ostensibly bought the Jersey Boys soundtrack for my
parents, but we all know who got the most mileage out of that
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. My shower - the only place in town that lets the singer do Boyz
II Men, Metallica and Josh Groban all in one set.
2. Pio Pio - It's basically Peruvian crack. Actually Peruvian crack
is probably actual crack. Their chicken is awesome, is what I'm
3. Gummi Bears - there's a point where you start bringing gummi
bears into the cab on the way to the bar that you realize you may
have a problem. By "you" I mean "I."
4. My Jay Sean Pandora station that also plays Breaking Benjamin,
Killswitch Engage, etc. - which you know I've been working on for
years because it's a Jay Sean Pandora station.
5. Turkey, yogurt, eggs, cottage cheese - Let's just say it's not
the most creative weekday menu at the Blanquito Mansion.
6. My New York Mets pajama pants - but we're not really at that
stage yet, are we?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Isn't "short-term dating" just failed long-term dating? And why am
I supposedly looking for that?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Like the rest of us, I'm making sure my azaleas are watered.
Actually it's not so much the watering, it's more just leaving my
scent in the garden so the woodchucks won't come in and eat
everything while I'm enjoying a night out with my friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Kindness is very important. Sorry to get serious on you there. I
know that came out of left field. More jokes follow.
Also a lifelong Mets and Knicks fan -- proof of my dedication to
long-term relationships under the most trying of circumstances.
