Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a smart, funny, attractive guy who's trying to make more of an
effort to get out there and meet some new people.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a grad student. When I'm not studying, I read, play tennis, go
for long runs, swim, if I can find a pool, hang out with friends,
and spend a lot of time thinking about future possibilities. I
realize this description makes me sound dull, but I'm not. I swear!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I suppose I do many things well, but I have an amazing ability to
do math quickly in my head. People who work in restaurants often
comment on it.
The first things people usually notice about me

There are many things about me that stand out, not least of which
is my blond hair. I'm also pretty tall and I have midnight blue
eyes, which are unlike the crystalline ones that most blue-eyed
people have. Maybe they're a genetic expression of emotional depth?
I'm not really sure. They could just be dirty.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

I read a lot of novels. I'm a huge fan of most things written in
the 19th century, but, as I've gotten older, I've broadened my
horizons. I love Philip Roth and am sad that he's decided to retire
officially. I also love Jane Hamilton.
I love most movies. I have a thing for Jane Fonda films from the
70s. I'm definitely on the Meryl Streep bus, and I try to sit
through each year's pack of Oscar contenders. I hate myself a
little for making the effort and will understand if you do
In terms of music, I like everything from top-40 pop to country to
I eat out all the time and am not picky. I would love to learn how
to cook well, but I haven't found the time. I'm also obsessed with
red wine and could probably drink most people under the table. Shh,
it has health benefits!
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Running shoes, expensive sweaters, youtube, my family, sushi, a
little chaos--if only to keep life interesting.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How hard it is to communicate all the things that go on inside my
head. I definitely have a rich internal life, and sometimes it's
vastly more exciting than the external life I lead. I wouldn't say,
though, that I've completely turned into Walter Mitty.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
At dinner with a friend, maybe headed to the movies, maybe in bed,
watching some bad TV show from the 90s.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm often perceived to be an ice prince, but I'm surprisingly
nurturing and grow to love most people. Just don't cross me or I
will break you down Philly-style.
