Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Doin the whole life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness thing.
Born & raised in Long Island by two loving parents, and
mentally abused by two older sisters. Always worked hard in school
and found time for sports and arts. Got into an Ivy League school,
worked a lot, got an MBA part time, ran the marathon, broke my leg,
picked up playing tennis, worked even more, burned out, working a
lot on my small business, wrote a self summary about myself.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Right now I'm trying to make my business succeed while continuing
to enjoying the city, and hopefully i can share my experiences and
create some news ones with somebody from this site.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Listening and hopefully giving good advice. Fixing things and
figuring stuff out DIY style Eg, replaced my iphone dock when i
dropped my phone in yogurt, resoldered new capacitors in my iMac,
I'm practically an electrician having installed hundreds of outlets
and have done multiple plumbing lines, a boiler and HVAC. What
else... In one day I can bike all 5 boroughs of the city. What else
am I overly proud of myself about... Figuring out what ingredients
went into the processed foods at the supermarket - you don't need
me, I guess, if you shop at whole foods. I like explaining science
for you to get it and if you appreciate hearing my science
ramblings, that's good. If you can further the discussion- that's
even better. Can hit a bulls-eye in darts- I can play you for
money, or some other dare ;)
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
As I approach you'll notice my red cheeks, and as i leave you'll
notice my butt cheeks.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Movies: I'd say anything including Woody Allen or Bill Murray:
Sleeper and What About Bob are classics; Monty Python's Meaning of
Life; I enjoy a good action movie or suspense any day. I was a fan
of the UCB theater from day 1, but I got overloaded on improv and
now I go to see a show now and then. I took classes but it requires
too much commitment (no pun intended.. you have to 'commit' to your
character. ha ha.) I'm a food scientist, so am a decent cook. I
love thai food, probably because of the sugar in a lot of their
sauces. I spent a month in Taiwan and two weeks in Japan, so I got
into their cuisines (I love me some shabu-shabu.) I am addicted to
Call of Duty, so I don't allow myself to own the game. I have a
friend who brings it over and we kill each other. I'm a nerd and
like reading about science, and I've been learning about Arduino
programming. History novels are good as well, but I currently just
read the WSJ every day. I want to read either facts or something
funny, at least at this stage in my life. Music: Johnny Cash is the
man. I'll sing any of his songs Karaoke, some by heart. I really
dig Ratatat. I found I like some Jazz, like Lou Donaldson. 5 years
ago I loved Arcade Fire, and now I can't listen to a single song.
It's the old stuff that you don't get (nearly as) tired of. Also, I
just realized I still know by heart, word for word, every They
Might Be Giants song between about 1989 and 1999... deep down I'm
still a nerd. Not even that deep :)
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
The six things I could never do without:
This question makes everyone sound overly dependent on material
things and technology... I'll answer it as "six material things I
(1) iPhone (2) Wikipedia (3) Excel (I know... dork) (4) Steak (I
friggin love steak, not that I don't like rice and veggies, but you
can't beat a medium rare cut) (5) Tennis (a healthy but serious
addiction) (6) My girl... talkin 'bout my girl :)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I'm mainly thinking about work, but I'd like to have kids
eventually. I think I'm done with casual dating.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Meeting up with my 9-5 friends, hopefully in my hood (the East
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm a terrible swimmer - I had to take a swim class in college in
order to graduate (requirement was to swim 3 lengths of the pool. I
passed! I find I get water in my ears really easily and it won't
come out for weeks, so I need earplugs. I'd like to get better.
I've done snorkeling, so I'm not afraid of water, but I have a
life-sustaining respect for the deep :)

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
• You're not a brat and you receive very little assistance from
your parents (I have trouble relating with privileged people)
• You can cook, and so do you
• You look very closely like your pictures (You're wasting both of
our time with misleading pics)
• You're in very good shape and active (I am very healthy - I don't
want to be your personal trainer)
• You don't complain much about your life (but you are finding ways
to improve it)
• You're self confident and strong, but also kind, warm, and
• Call me old fashioned, but I need to talk to you on the phone
before we meet for a drink or dinner.
• If you proudly describe yourself as a "bitch" or get
misinterpreted as "bitchy" a fair amount, it ain't gonna work. I
need a nice girl for this nice guy.
• Don't be all high and mighty against gym selfies. There's nothin
wrong with a little pride after taking time to tone your body. Gym
mirror pics are a lot better than all the excessive drinking and
partying pics. Or the one time you did Tough Mudder. :)
