Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Actor/playwright/free spirit. OK, that doesn't really "summarize"
me but it's what comes to mind first. Hmmm... What comes to mind
next? I like to sleep as late as possible and can spend a day doing
absolutely nothing but that's only if I'm not getting up for an
early morning bike ride or run or swim. Oh yeah, I started
triathlon training a few years ago and love it! But it's not the
most important thing in my life... More important: just, well,
enjoying and exploring. What I'm looking for: a man who likes
whatever it is he does, is smart, has a good sense of humor, loves
being in NYC, and appreciates the country as well. I definitely do
not need to meet someone who is super-athletic, just someone who
likes being active. Being active in many ways: now that's
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Having fun, I hope, learning new things as often as possible,
trying to surprise myself at least once a day. I have two fabulous
jobs - I'm a sign language interpreter, and a teaching/performing
artist using puppets to teach kids diversity. And I like to swim,
bike, and run, do yoga too. Not all at the same time. I live in the
city and try to take advantage of all it offers, as cliche as that
may sound. I'm a member of MOMA and love Coney Island and Central
Park and the Hudson River and the old Lower East Side. I also spend
a lot of time upstate in the Catskills reading, writing, x-country
skiing in the winter and barbequeing (sp?) in the summer.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Napping. When I'm not doing that, doing twelve things in one day
(see "what I'm doing with my life"), which is why I need to nap.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My off-beat sense of humor? Do you notice that or does it happen?
... It used to be my long curly hair but it's shorter now ... just
fyi ... and, they probably notice, if they are reading this, that I
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Movies - Harold and Maude, The Wizard of Oz, It's a Wonderful Life;
Books, too many to mention although a favorite is "Winter's Tale"
by Mark Helprin (as opposed to the one by Shakespeare, although
that's pretty good too). Music - Elvis (both of them) Bach
bluegrass and Bruce (Springsteen); Food - yummy anything
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
A body of water to swim in, real bagels, the library,
family/friends, the subway, trees, NPR. I guess I can't live
without SEVEN things.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The sad state of politics today, the weather (closely related to
climate change and also my triathlon training), if I'm going to
have iced or hot coffee in the morning. That last one is only in
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I don't like the word "typical" but -- I could be in Astoria with
friends having Greek food, at a movie somewhere in Manhattan, or at
home watching re-runs of something...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
It's too private to put in writing.
