Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
My glass is half full. I'm a people person and I'm active, so I'm
always out and about. Friends and family are amazing (grew up
locally so I'm lucky to have them around), but it really is
priceless when you meet someone you just click with - that same
I'm inquisitive, so I ask a lot of questions. I'm also open-minded,
spontaneous, and more carefree than cautious. I think it's because
I tend to assume everything will turn out just fine.
I do much better with open, honest people who say what they're
thinking versus reserved types. I'm a sucker for a good
conversationalist too. I like to admire the way someone thinks.
Nothing captivates me more than smart wit (humor requires
intelligence). Also love when it's effortless for us to seamlessly
swap between meaningful and meaningless banter just the same.
Lastly, I'm very drawn to people who have both a creative and
business mind. I'm forever throwing myself into a new project or
interest, and would love someone who thrives on the same type of
thing. Let's constantly introduce each other to new passions, and
try everything we come up with at least once.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I write the strategy for ad campaigns. And, there's always a
meaningful side project in the works. Otherwise, I'm usually doing
something with friends/family like hiking, biking, cooking,
snowboarding, the beach, photography, wandering, etc. Let's pick an
activity, any activity, and do it for hours and hours until we
deserve a drink, burger or nap (though I'm awful at napping). Oh,
and I live and work in the West Village, so life's pretty easy at
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Writing, drawing, cooking (I'm half-Italian, so it's in the genes),
anything creative (which I consider cooking to be), spooning,
The first things people usually notice about me

Either my eyes - my family all has the same color. We're like a
bunch of tigers.
Or my laugh. It's appreciative.

A definite 'foodie' - love to cook, dine out, discover new
recipes/ingredients, savor every bite, bond over loving it, ride
bikes to get it.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Why 6 and not 5? I'm going for 7
Coffee (I don't trust people who don't drink coffee)
Cheese (please tolerate lactose!)
A great pair of jeans and high heels
Those I adore

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I'm a ponderer. I'm also paid to think about things, so tons of
stuff - love diving into a new subject and putting my own spin on
I think about having a country escape someday, possibly upstate (I
spend a lot of time in New Paltz)
I think about restoring a house with someone.
As for online dating, I think about how easy it is to pass up
someone amazing, and how we'd never, ever know it.
Also, why anyone jumps straight to IM without first making a
connection. That level of assumption creeps me.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Low key. Friday night is such a great reason to chill with people
who are great to chill with.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

It all comes down to the kiss. It's the one thing that can make me
fall weak to someone.
