Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I live near the Ghostbusters headquarters (it's in Tribeca), and
I'm quite proud of that. I'm ambitious and hard working, but
definitely within reason. I'm pretty sarcastic, lack a filter, and
laugh at inappropriate times. I love to work out, and it's a big
priority in my life. It's hard for me to avoid quoting The Big
Lebowski or Point Break in conversations. I'm open-minded and
intellectually curious, and I enjoy a good discussion about
anything from the deepest philosophy to the most inane observation.
I love the outdoors and the indoors. I never use "lol", and I have
a really hard time sleeping without a fan running. Finally, I think
razor scooters should be outlawed.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.

I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Choosing the fastest line at the grocery store (the key is to avoid
people with lots of produce), being early, carrying heavy stuff,
finding my way around, awkward hugs, clotheslining skateboarders,
useless and useful trivia, making Duane Reade umbrellas last, and
starting fires with my mind.
The first things people usually notice about me

If I'm in my lawyer disguise, it's probably the volume of my voice
(I'm loud). If I'm in a t-shirt and/or shorts, then it's definitely
my tattoos. If I'm wearing a sombrero, then it's that.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: I love to read and pretty much only read literature. Blood
Meridian, Infinite Jest, Slaughterhouse-Five, As I Lay Dying, A
Confederacy of Dunces, and A Song of Ice and Fire series (the Game
of Thrones books -- I'm a dork) are some favorites.
Movies: I love movies and have so many favorites from Goodfellas to
The Lives of Others to Caddyshack to Commando.
Shows: I have a hard time keeping track of all the shows out there,
but The Wire is my all-time favorite, followed by Six Feet Under,
Rome, True Detective, Curb, Mad Men, Deadwood, Veep, and
Music: I enjoy everything from classical to Led Zeppelin.
Food: I love trying new restaurants. I'm an omnivore and will eat
almost anything. Mexican and sushi are probably my go-to
I'm a rabid NPR listener.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. the gym
2. a fan (see above)
3. a back scratcher
5. Dos Torros
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Whether those giant street sweepers are worth the gas and noise.
You really don't know or care that everyone can hear your awful
music through your headphones? Metaphysical time travel issues. The
death of the Oxford comma. Does anyone really watch TURN:
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Being mistaken for Ryan Gosling. That's a joke. I'm usually out or
in, like all New Yorkers.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I don't like leftovers, and I prefer to pickup my takeout rather
than have it delivered (the idea of this seems to drive some people

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You appreciate sarcasm, you possibly snort when you laugh, you have
at least some interest in fitness/health, and you're cool with
tattoos. That's it.
