My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
erudite. thoughtful. organized. loyal. confident. sophistimicated.

my "thing" is food. and more specifically, eating out in nyc.

i like to think i have a good sense of style, for men and women, developed from lots of shopping, mostly in and around soho and barneys. i will unfailingly bug you to try stuff on.

i play a musical instrument. not the guitar. and not the kazoo.

i love playing sports, and am a bit of a pro sports nut. but trust me, i'd much rather wander the streets of new york on a sunday afternoon than stay in and watch nfl.

and as for shopping + wandering, i have a particular weakness for home i walk up and down the aisles, my knees buckle at the thought of things i could construct with that compound miter saw and all that lumber...and a PNEUMATIC NAILER. and a power drill. and a wet/dry vac. i subscribe to dwell magazine, i have a man-crush on norm abrams, and i want to pitch in on more habitat for humanity projects.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
living it, dammit! living!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
fixing stuff. good thing i've made a career out of it.

observation. and subsequent interpretation.

and running...marathons, that is. i've run 11 in the past 5 years...and i plan on running at least 2 a year until my legs fall off. i plan on being THAT guy you read about in the nytimes who runs the nyc marathon for 30-35 consecutive years. so far, seoul was my best, and paris was the most memorable.

and i'm discovering a flair for cooking. i'm pretty good with eggs. and i can make a mean kimchi fried rice.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
probably my glasses. and that i look pretty young. and usually people guess that i'm chinese...even the koreans.

lately i'm rocking a serious faux-hawk...think macklemore at the grammys. i find that people around my age love it; people around my parents' age hate it; and kids just stare at me. slightly disconcerting.

as for someone at a wedding not too long ago...i exchanged pleasantries with one of the guests, and then she gave me one of those up-and-down looks. the very next thing she said to me was:
"you look like a troublemaker."
thanks. (i kind of am.)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
i'm extremely opinionated about classical music and opera. other than that, i usually struggle to identify any song that wasn't from the 1980s.

as for movies, i'm quite partial to amadeus, before sunset, in the mood for love and 2046, an ideal husband, the remains of the day, rear window, midnight in paris, and most anything by tarantino (but especially kill bill and inglourious basterds. and ESPECIALLY django unchained.). no matter how terrible it is, i'm also willing to give any movie that involves new york city a've got mail, the peacemaker, friends with benefits, you name it. and, james bond is my hero...a close second is jacob palmer.

tv shows...i pretty much follow what's on hbo. with a little bit of showtime sprinkled in. it was all about the newsroom. and girls. now trying to catch up on homeland. true detective was.THE.BEST. i'm now hooked on kdramas, mainly to improve my korean. gentleman's dignity, pasta, my love from another star, it's okay, that's love...all great. now working on you are all surrounded., this is a tough one. i go out to eat a lot. in new york, my most recent memorable meals were at the nomad, momofuku ko, maialino, and sushi yasuda. in paris, l'arpège and le comptoir du relais. in montréal, au pied de cochon (and desperate to try joe beef.). i'm also a bit obsessed with nyc pizza...difara, paulie gee, motorino, roberta's, don antonio, nicoletta, to name a few faves.

[if you're wondering about the "vegetarian" thing, i've been inspired by graham hill's weekday vegetarianism and the vb6 diet by mark bittman. so far, i don't miss meat all that much. but don't worry: i can still out-eat most anyone.]

books...i've dabbled a bit in murakami, dostoyevsky, and david sedaris. i'm trying to get through the great gatsby, but only because i saw baz's movie first (don't judge). ultimately though, i've been opting for improving language skills over reading for pleasure. it's all about communication, ladies...n'est-ce pas?
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
-- iphone.
-- opentable.
-- google maps.
-- john varvatos.
-- old world wine.
-- mozart.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
my next restaurant reservation.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
usually at some bar in east village or les. mixology, wine, or beer. with fries. mmm fries.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
my guilty pleasure is lady gaga.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
you're not the kind of girl that declares, on the first date, that you're not willing to settle down with me and have kids because...a. i don't have a graduate degree and your parents will find that very disappointing, and b. you'd like to have the option of being a full-time mom but you don't think i make enough money to support a family on my own.

(true story.)

so, if that's not you, then fire away!

oh yeah, and...mentioning the fact that you have a 15-month-old son BEFORE going out to dinner with me would be advisable.
[UPDATE: i ran into this same girl's profile again today. STILL NO MENTION OF THE SON.]
