My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
There is a center to the universe. It isn’t me.

There is still room in a digital world for a bit of analog, I say.

Dating should be more like discovering a hidden waterfall while hiking, and less like shopping for a new pair of shoes.

“Don’t be a jerk” seems to me to be a pretty good guideline by which to live one’s life.

To say that coffee is absolutely essential to human existence vastly undersells its importance.

Most of us work in order to provide a source of income for our existence. Some of us are lucky enough to love what they do and who they work with, and feel like they get to make a difference in the world. I am one of those people.

There is no such thing as “online dating.” Dating is done in real time, face-to-face, no electrons involved. The online part of it is simply a more efficient means of meeting like-minded people than hanging out in bars, chance encounters, or hoping your friends will introduce you to the love of your life.

I embrace the random chaos of the world, rather than ascribe it to some grand plan overseen by a supreme being.

Quality trumps quantity. Every damn time. Especially when it comes to shoes.

Are we a nation of citizens? Or a nation of consumers?

Drama is great, provided it's on a movie screen or the pages of a book.

If I could go back in time and be anyone I wanted to, I’d be an amalgam of Cary Grant, Franklin D. Roosevelt, and Jonathan Winters.

“The only constant is change” is not a cliché, it’s a fact. Deal with it, or get left behind.

“Learn something new every day” is also, not a cliché. It’s a mission statement.

Perhaps the most depressing word in the English language is “average.”

I wonder what the world would look like if we all gravitated towards the things we love, and not towards the things we fear?

Yeah, I know you can open a door for yourself. But it makes me happy if you let me do it for you.

There's more, but let's discuss that over drinks or coffee, shall we?
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Doing my best to be a good person. Working hard, relaxing, exercising, traveling, spending time with friends and family, doing things that interest and amuse me, trying not to overthink this dating business.

I have a solid, balanced, and positive outlook on life, and I feel my best years are still ahead of me. I've been fortunate to build a great life for myself. And while I am perfectly happy with my single status, I can't help but wonder how much better life could be if it was shared with another special person. So far, she's proven to be elusive, but maybe she's you?
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Laughing, making others laugh, asking questions, listening, finding my way around unfamiliar cities, being a friend, scrambling eggs
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I do get a lot of comments on my socks and neckties, and people say I have a nice smile, but really, I have no idea.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Music -- jazz, classical, rock, pop, anything live
Movies -- Indies, drama, foreign, film noir, documentaries
Books -- I have eclectic tastes, lot of histories, biographies, but always on the lookout for a good novel
Food -- I'll eat anything. I love a great meal
TV -- don't watch it all that much, but Breaking Bad, Better Call Saul, Mad Men, Big Bang Theory are all recent faves (I prefer shows with alliterative or rhyming titles, apparently)

I’m interested in anything artistic, performing, static or otherwise. Museums, galleries, architecture, live theater, symphonies, ballet, opera -- bring it on. I like sports too, particularly the Blazers and baseball (go Yankees), and sports car racing. But I'm not a "watch TV all day" kind of sports fan.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Travel
Good shoes
Reading
Laughter
Friends
Conversation
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Where I'm going on my next trip.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
