Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
**I live in Syracuse, NY but I'm back and forth between NY and
Ontario very frequently.**
Sell myself in 100 words or more... I hate this part and I'm trying
to come up with something clever, but as always I'm just too sleep
deprived at the moment...
Have been dealing with some serious health issues these past
several months - nothing too dire (or contagious), but enough to
keep my sidelined for the better part of a year. Been very
isolated, looking to socialize with people outside of my team
health care professionals. Apologies to anyone I lost touch with
before my health took a turn for the worse. Getting back into
fighting shape - send me a message especially if you're looking for
a work-out buddy!
I'm always looking to try new things and expand my mind as well as
my circle of friends...
I enjoy lots of artsy/nerdy stuff and I let my freak flag fly...
while everyone else is having kids and getting sober, I instead
grew up to be a fanboy
must dash when i think of more i'll add it...
I am intellectual, imaginative, and expressive
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Lots going on: finishing my graduate degrees, working, always
Started my own business a few years back, so I'm always on the go
and my schedule can often change. If I'm not in contact right away
and/or frequently, don't take it personally...
Trying to maintain a place in life that allows me to be successful
as myself with a platform for creative expression, but also
provides financial stability without having to be surrounded by
empty materialistic people only interested in keeping up with the
Johnson's and dying with the most toys...
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Making people laugh, discussing ideas, generally being creative...
not terribly good at summing myself up in quips on internet
"It's true. She's very funny and great to be around. :)
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
my sense of humor, my hair, my smile, my out-spoken attitude!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Off the top of my head: Freakenomics, The
Fountainhead, Les Miserables, The Portable Dorothy Parker,
Shopgirl, whatever the latest cultural studies book that i've
Movies: Have to admit that I am a movie-geek who will drive
an hour to catch some little indie flick (yeah Cornell Cinema &
Fall Creek) and has been known to say "well, yes, and in the
original Danish version..." To name but a few of my favs: Wonder
Boys, Peter's Friends, LA Confidential, Layer Cake, Clerks, Fight
Club, Mrs Parker & the Vicious Circle, The Baxter, Fantastic Mr

angry-young-man-on-prozac alternative rock, classical, opera...
basically whatever provides the soundtrack to my mood at the
Food: I'm a foodie, love to cook and try new things; my food
snob friends keep my tummy full... still prob my fav food is pizza
because you can make it quick and from just about anything
(flatbread, bagels). Oh, and Newman's Own Limeade is my crack...
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1) My Friends: the people who challenge and inspire and just make
2) My pets: they just continue to delight and amaze me
3) My books: should be obvious enough
4) My car: I have a strong sense of wanderlust and love a
spontaneous road trip
5-6) still pondering...
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Everything... my mind is always at work...
Mostly books, movies, comedy
, music, comics
, art, travel
& cooking; current events,
politics, religion/philosophy, psychology, genetics, language, and
lots of other little non sequiturs that trigger my neurons...
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Out with my friends having good time and a good laugh (movies,
dinner out, get-together, etc.), or sometimes at home catching up
on movies, shows or a good book
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm mildly manic-depressive; it's not as much of an issue for me as
I've made an effort to lead a healthy life and remove any
unnecessary stressors (like corporate bullshit artists and
soul-suck amateur dramatists). I only bring it up as a preemptive
explanation as to why sometimes I'm the raucous life of the party,
while other times I'm quiet and contemplative and prefer to keep to
All that should matter to anyone is that I'm a loyal, devoted
friend, but I'm complex and sometimes I bring the crazy (which
isn't always all bad, trust me)...

You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
- You appreciate the finer things in life (e.g. theatre, cuisine),
but not to the point of such insufferable snobbishness that you
can't delight in simpler pleasures (e.g. popcorn movies, midnight
pancakes at the local diner)
- You've actually developed a personality and sense of who you are,
and as such do not expect me to fall over you merely because of the
numbers in your postal code, bank account, or penis length
- You understand the merits of a real J-O-B (or even a career), but
not solely for the sake of obtaining status seeking toys and
- You're tired of the same old nonsense and want a challenging new
person who's nothing like you've known before...
