Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a native New Yorker, which apparently makes me some kind of
unicorn, because every time I mention this to someone, they say,
"wow, you're the first one I've met!" When I follow that with the
fact I've never had a license, I usually blow people's minds.
Basically, I try to be a good guy and remain true to myself. I have
a generally positive attitude, because being negative gives you
frown lines, and Botox is expensive. I'm pretty extroverted, though
I definitely have my moments of quiet and shyness. I try to keep my
life full of fun, which means anything from dancing my butt off
until 4am to sitting home with someone watching a movie (though
admittedly of late I've been doing a lot more of one than the other
- seriously, I can't remember the last time I saw what 4am looks
like). I like going to karaoke at bars with cheap drinks.
I'm by no means perfect, but I generally have my shit together.
Anything else you want to know about me, just ask =)
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work in marketing...don't worry, no one else knows what that
really means either.
I just moved to the UWS to my own apartment (yay, look at me, I'm
an adult...sort of). What this really means is I can now walk naked
from the bathroom to my bedroom and only the cat will see (and
perhaps the random passerbys if the cat pulls the curtain out of
the window again). Oh, so I have a cat. She's like having the best
dog in the world who doesn't require me to say things like, "I
can't go away for the weekend, who will watch the dog?"...and no,
I'm not that guy who will talk endlessly about his pet (she is kind
of amazing, but I think I can manage a better conversation than
A while back, someone asked me, "If you had to pick one thing to
define your life, what would it be? Would it be love? Money? Your
job?" As cheesy as it may sound, my answer was "the pursuit of
happiness," so I guess that's what I'm doing with my life.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm like a walking IMDB. I'm also really good at some other things
that would make my mother blush (actually, knowing my
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Personality-wise, I tend to be told that I'm really genuine and
that I have an impressive vocabulary
Physically, guess it depends on if you're seeing me from the front
or the back ;-)
(which leads to the second thing people notice about me
personality-wise - I'm confidently sarcastic)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
FOOD: Ice cream, anything wrapped in bacon...other than that, I'm
not necessarily adventurous with what specifically I'll eat, but I
will try any cuisine (i.e., I'm sure I can find something on the
menu at the South African place besides the Ostrich). I also really
like trying new restaurants. Cupcakes are an excellent way to
persuade me to go anywhere with you.
TV: Currently I watch Revenge, Grey's Anatomy, How To Get Away With
Murder, Empire, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Vampire Diaries, Once
Upon A Time, Glee, Modern Family, American Horror Story...and
probably some other stuff I'm forgetting. Past favorites include
Buffy the Vampire Slayer (don't knock it til you've tried it),
Lost, Nip/Tuck, Sex and the City, Veronica Mars, Six Feet
MUSIC: I have a pretty wide range of music, but in the interest of
space I'll say I'm a Top 40 kind of guy with a penchant for sassy
chicks that span various genres
MOVIES: I love going to the movies. Some favorites include: Fight
Club, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Gone with the Wind,
the Harry Potter movies, Mean Girls, The Devil Wears Prada, Finding
Nemo, all the various superhero movies (I was a huge comic book
geek growing up), Enchanted, American Beauty, Pitch Perfect...and a
myriad of other stuff
BOOKS: This could get complicated. Let's just say I enjoy reading
and we can discuss further some other time.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Oh lists, I enjoy lists:
1. iPhone (it would be like gay castration)
2. DVR (I'm too addicted to TV but I refuse to let is rule my
3. Ice Cream (if I became lactose intolerant, I'd grab several
pints of Ben & Jerry's and die happy)
4. Excitement (self-explanatory)
5. Dancing (I tend not to go out dancing as much as I used to, but
if it's really been awhile there tend to be impromptu dance parties
in my living room)
6. My friends (awwwwwe)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.

On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?

long week) or out with friends at a bar

I have two tattoos
In college I was in a play where I was covered in champagne,

...you have balls. If you're into me, have the balls to ask me out.
If you're not into me, have the balls to let me know that too. If
you're energetic and witty, genuine, have good manners and you're a
little bit dorky...we'll get along just fine. If you can respond to
texts in a timely manner, you've already got brownie points in my
book. Oh, and don't be flaky...this is New York, time is worth too
much for us to waste each others.
I told myself I was swearing off dating for 2015, but my exception
was if someone was proactive and asked me out (instead of me asking
them) then it was OK. So, I guess you should message me if you're
