My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm originally from The Bronx but spent many of my formative years growing up in the Bay Area.

When I grow up (!) I want to be a novelist or at least get paid to write something, anything. :-) I've written for as long as I can remember, quite literally before I had words -I drew pictures (which goes a long way toward explaining my affinity for comic books). I fully admit to being a bit scattered in my interests. I'm a bit of a nerd and a complete cinephile. There are few things I won't watch (from obscure arthouse docs to the most asinine big budget comedies). I thought for a number of years that I wanted to move to LA and be the director of kick-ass action movies on par with a Kathryn Bigelow or Mimi Leder or the screenwriter of the next Die Hard.

In my youth, my other most serious and enduring aspiration was to be a veterinarian. That is, until calculus and chemistry royally kicked my ass in college. And yet despite my failure, many aspects of science in general and biology in particular still intrigue me; so I read the Science Times religiously on Tuesdays (just like my H.S. Bio teacher taught me).

That said, I'm still a prime candidate for the first seat on the short bus with regard to mathematics. Seriously, it's scary how much I don't know and can't manage to figure out (I think this admission is a viable choice for the "Most private thing I'm willing to admit" entry, but I told you here, bonus!)

Word to the wise, don't ever ask me to help you calculate the tip or tell you the sale price, I'll just make you sad (and cost you money).
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I like to think I'm a writer but nothing I've written has been published in quite a few years. (Alright I'll admit that I haven't submitted anything for publication in the same amount of time).

Right now, I think I'd like to go back to school to get my MFA. But no use in suggesting I plan on going back soon. Currently, I'm enslaved by the dread demon "Full-Time Gainful Employment" in the desperate and ultimately sisyphean task of placating the twin succubi "Bottomless Educational Debt" and "Mounting Personal Expenses".
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Listening, Laughing, Talking (a lot...no, seriously A LOT - underline, italicize, bold), Having fun. Treating people with respect. Apologizing when I'm occasionally wrong. Giving a compliment to someone who's earned it (or needs it). Giving really bad advice. Giving really good advice. Being loyal.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have large eyes apparently, a nice smile and beautiful lips (I swear that's not just me being an obnoxious braggard - blame make-up artists for that revelation). Oh yes and my very poor fashion sense....I wish that last bit weren't so (Viable candidate #2 for "Most Private Thing I'm Willing to Admit").
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
After reading some of the profiles of guys I thought were interesting, I'm kinda embarrassed to say my favorite books aren't more highbrow. It seems like one wrong choice...such as a weakness for Danielle Steele or Stephen King (just examples okay, EXAMPLES I SAY!) and all the cute Philip Roth fans or Cormac McCarthy junkies head for the hills! So let me just say it now, I do know who Proust, Hemingway and Faulkner are, it's just that my reading tastes tend to be far more pedestrian. Don't judge me... (okay, that was Candidate #3...are you keeping track?)

My favorite film...not sure, don't think I have one. I've seen too many at this point. Seriously, as a child, my step-dad's BFF owned a video store (it was like my own personal cinematic candy store - can you say R-rated movie marathons?!?!) As a result, we owned over 500 movies ourselves. So picking just one or two is tough, but I will say this, as a kid it used to be a tie between The Terminator and the aforementioned Die Hard (which I personally think is the best plotted, paced and executed action movie of its kind).

Other childhood favorites were Clash of the Titans (haven't seen the remake, and yes I do now know with my adult eyes that the whole thing was stupid with the mechanical owl and everything), Rocky Horror Picture Show (Time-Warp- 'nuff said), Miss Firecracker (I love Holly Hunter in this movie), Aliens, etc.... And though my tastes have certainly matured, I guess the truth is I'm still quite lowbrow. More recently, I saw and enjoyed American Hustle and The Secret Life of Walter Mitty.

TV: I watch more than I should admit- Assorted L&Os (SVU, UK, etc.- it's like comfort food for any NYer I think.) Greys, Scandal (it's so stupid but I can't stop- it's like "girl crack"), House of Cards (US), The Good Wife, Justified, True Blood, Archer, Homeland (at the urging of family and friends), Boardwalk Empire, The Walking Dead, Breaking Bad, Downton Abbey, Game of Thrones, Misfits (but I tapped out in the middle of season three).

Musically, I tend to be more of a generalist. A survey of my iPod would uncover R&B/Hip Hop and 80's Pop mostly but I'm open to all sorts of music. I'm completely willing to be musically educated. At work, I float between my "Sarah McLachlan", my "Eric Hutchinson", my "Police" and my "Aaliyah" stations on Pandora. (Side note: the "Sarah McLachlan" station plays very little actual Sarah McLachlan).
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I answered this on another site. Let's see, what did I say:
...a blanket (I can't stand to be cold)
a TV
pen and paper (I am a writer after all)
sugar (in any form, I have a crazy *insane* sweet tooth)
A book (I love to read).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
My friends and family, my health, my figure (what woman doesn't), what the future holds...
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Vegging out with some take-out and making it a Netflix night. Although usually my Netflix selection is collecting dust on my bureau. So it's really just me and whatever programs my fickle DVR (that I've named Josh) has decided I can watch.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I don't have a driver's license. As a result, I'm very nervous in cities without reliable public transportation options (whether or not I actually intend on using them).
I’m looking for
  • Guys who like girls
  • Ages 28–45
  • Near me
  • Who are single
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You can appreciate a little self-deprecating humor, you think you're pretty cute, you think I'm pretty cute, you've discovered that dinner with friends is always a good time, you like the actual experience of movie-going (cool theater, warm tub 'o popcorn, giant screen and someone to share it all with), you love a good conversation, a bad joke or a great book. And especially if you have something interesting to say- I love that!
