Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
The succinct version:
I'm educated, athletic, ambitious, and looking for the same. While
I am driven, I also love to have fun as much as possible and don't
take myself to seriously.
I enjoy working out, learning, movies, comedy clubs, watching and
playing sports, golf, pool, cooking, trying new restaurants and
bars, and spending time with family and friends.
What I’m looking for:
Someone who is down-to-earth and looking for a serious
relationship. I like a girl who is educated, has a great sense of
humor, has a career established, is responsible, and ambitious
(this doesn't exactly mean someone looking to be the next Hillary
Clinton, but rather someone who wants to better their economic
standing in life). Also, I would like to be with someone who likes
to try new things whenever possible. In my ideal relationship each
person is an equal, we are best friends, and want to make the best
life for each other. I think communication is key and I prefer to
be open and very direct at all times.
On a lighter note, after going on "a few" dates I've learned that
many people can look like a match made in heaven on paper. However,
it really is all about having chemistry when you meet in person...
and I'm not talking about a class you failed in high school.
Further, I think a lot of people overemphasize having similar
interests. I think having personalities that mesh is more
important, but that's just me. Bottom line, there's either a
connection or there isn't. So, just because we both like Seinfeld
and The Wu Tang Clan doesn't necessarily mean we'll be growing old
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work downtown in financial services and am currently working on
completing the CFA.
Also, I just took my first big international trip to China and
loved every smoggy minute of it. I'm really looking forward to my
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Winning hearts and minds, making people laugh, pool, problem
solving, navigating, parallel parking, Monopoly, one-liners,
cooking, listening, and just about anything else I put my mind to.

My sense of humor. And no I'm not the guys who thinks he's really
funny, but everyone secretly thinks he's a jackass.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Reading: Da Vinci Code, Angels and Demons, Outliers, Rich Dad Poor
Dad, The Millionaire Next Door, WSJ. I genuinely enjoy learning and
usually prefer non-fiction. Unfortunately though I don't get to
read much outside of material for work.
Movies: I'm a big movie buff and I like most genres with the
exception of horror (they're scary) and romantic comedies.
I’m also a big fan of stand up comedy particularly the HBO specials
and the Comedy Central roasts.
TV Shows: I don't watch much TV day-to-day but when I do it's
either CNBC, Family Guy, Seinfeld, The Simpsons, Two and a Half
Men, or the The Big Bang Theory.
Music: Just about anything besides most rap and country. I mainly
listen to classic rock and love everything from Motown to
Food: I love to eat and there is not much I don't like. The only
thing I won't eat again is Indian food. I like spicy food but now
my mouth starts to burn when I look at India on a map. However,
some of my favorites are Italian, sushi, Chinese, Mexican.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
3. Working Out
4. Good food and coffee!
5. Olive oil
6. Air conditioning
I listed seven instead of six. Sorry, but it's the bad boy side of
Things I could do without:
Snow, the DMV, and the phrase "zombie apocalypse"
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
If I should make a career change, why people are so resistant to
talking on the phone, my next meal, and the next property I'd like

Bachelorette. I wonder if they would beat the Super Bowl?

Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Doing whatever I am in the mood for. This can include going out

I once had the theme from The Godfather as my ringtone. It was
quite a conversation starter.

You have a good sense of humor, are intelligent, ambitious, lead a
HEALTHY lifestyle, and are serious about a relationship. If you
want to know more just ask...rumor has it that there are no awkward
moments the internet. Also, since living in the burbs appears to be
equivalent to living in Siberia for those who live downtown, let me
say that if you live within an hour of me I'm willing to make an
