Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I do not believe that there is any conflict between feminism and
chivalry, and I believe that the heart of both (for men anyway) is
to be a gentleman. I am a feminist, and I am a romantic. I am
considerate, playful, and patient. While I prefer more intellectual
pursuits, I will always do whatever it takes to protect my friends
My sense of humor is an important part of who I am, and most people
find me very funny. My sense of humor is sometimes a little silly,
sometimes a little dark, and usually very dry. I am passionate
about philosophy, politics, and social justice, and I can
intelligently discuss science and current events. I like working
out even though I'm somewhat nerdy, but I've never been into
playing or watching competitive sports. I never tire of exploring
this amazing city.
I want to be with someone who will stick up for me when I'm right,
stand up to me when I'm wrong, and snuggle up with me when it's
cold outside. The most important quality in a partner to me is
intelligence, so please don't hide how smart you are. As for
appearance, I would like there to be some kind of physical
chemistry. However, in the past, I have often been strongly
attracted to women who wouldn't necessarily consider themselves to
be conventionally beautiful. Regardless, I'm much more interested
in learning about what makes you special than I am in what you look
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am an attorney, but I do not practice law professionally, because
my brother and I founded a successful Internet business. I love
that I get to work from home whenever I want to, which is in
Manhattan, near Washington Square Park in Greenwich Village.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I'll generally love anything by David Sedaris or Kurt Vonnegut or
Malcolm Gladwell. Some of my other favorite books are The
Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, Flowers for Algernon, 1984, and
Some of my favorite movies are This is Spinal Tap, A Clockwork
Orange, Edward Scissorhands, American Beauty, Pulp Fiction, and The
My favorite television shows include Orange is the New Black,
Arrested Development, 30 Rock, Parks and Recreation, How I Met Your
Mother, Mr. Show with Bob & David, Six Feet Under, and
Almost all of the music I like is either 1) the stuff they used to
call alternative and now they call rock; 2) 80s one-hit wonder
bands; or 3) classic rock from the mid-to-late 60s.
If I were stranded on a desert island, and I could only get one
food, I'd pick sushi. And that works out really well, because if I
do get stranded on a desert island, then that's probably the only
food I'm going to get.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
7. Not always following the rules.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Philosophical paradoxes. How to be a better person. National
politics. Social justice.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have a weakness for women who wear glasses.
