Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm not too good about talking about myself, but oh why not.
I was born in Pakistan, lived in Greece for a year (learned how to
speak English over there when I was in first grade) We then moved
to Dubai where I lived for about five years. I finished high school
in Pakistan, and then came here for college and have been here ever
since. I'm usually a pretty optimistic person. I've been through my
share of personal pain and heartbreak, but like to think I've come
out stronger from those experiences.
I value my close friends a lot. We've helped one another through a
Once I get to truly know someone, I am very good at expressing
myself, and also understanding them pretty well too. I believe good
relationships always start on some sort of platonic level, where
it's just easy to talk to someone, and then you take the next step
naturally. If you can connect with someone on an emotional level,
then the rest pretty much falls into place. If you find that right
person, and sometimes they can even be closer than you think, it's
always worth the risk to let them know how you feel.
I love humor. I laugh at the silliest of things. Laughing amongst
close friends or with that special someone is a beautiful feeling.
I can appreciate a snarky/sarcastic sense of humor, as long as it's
respectful and not condescending. I can laugh at myself as well or
make myself laugh when I do something silly. I respect honesty and
people who don't have an atttitude or take themselves too
Arrogance and conceit are a huge turn off.
I'm an affectionate person. I love holding hands, hugging, cuddling
and all that stuff, but also respect someone's need for space.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work in finance in midtown manhattan. I like to think of myself
as the anti-broker broker. I'm pretty much the antithesis of the
typical d-bags you find around the office. True story!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
ping pong! ahahaha It's sad but true.
I'm also a good listener and have some close people in my life who
confide their deepest secrets and problems with me.

In music I like the bands Interpol, Sigur Ros, Foo Fighters, The
