Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm an attorney and I actually like my job, especially since I just
I love getting lost in a NY Times crossword puzzle or a good book
-- I'm partial to fiction and to books I've read before. (That's
the problem with my kindle -- I can't just open to my favorite
section based on the crease in the binding). I've recently
discovered drawing and painting, which makes me sound far more
artistic than I am, but it's relaxing and new, so I'm going with
it. You're more likely to find me at a pub trivia night than
rappelling off the side of a mountain.
I was in St. Louis in 2004, which was amazing (just ask me for my
story about what would have happened if there was a game 5!), but
in New York in 2008, which was not nearly as much fun; I could take
or leave hockey and basketball, though I can get on the bandwagon
of the latter when we're doing well.
Autumn in New England -- I'm not sure it gets better than that.
Though I do love Winter in New England...and Spring... and Summer
is pretty good. After moving around the country a bunch (St. Louis,
Chicago, NYC), I'm pretty set on New England now, and Boston in
particular. I've met a great group of friends since moving back
here, and now would love to meet a great guy.

Help your potential matches find common interests.
When I moved to NYC for law school, I had no cable, a proclivity
for procrastination, and the complete series on DVD of the West
Wing and Friends -- I can quote pretty much every episode of both.
I love Aaron Sorkin's writing and followed him to Studio 60 and the
Newsroom, but have had no desire to see the Social Network... go
figure. I read pretty fast, so I love big, plot driven books that I
can get lost in by authors like John Irving and George Martin. (And
if he dies before telling me what happens to Arya, I'm not going to
be a happy camper. I really hope he has the answers in some safe
deposit box somewhere.)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.

(tights aren't pants!)

- why I write everything important on post-its or index cards and
stick them in my planners and notebooks (both for work and in
general), rarely writing on the paper.

I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I love pen shopping way more than any person should.

This is where we are supposed to describe the kind of person we are
looking for, right? So I'm going to skip the nice, cute, funny,
smart, etc. as I know no one who doesn't think that applies to
So how about someone who can follow the double negative in the
sentence above without getting confused, because I do that a lot?
Someone who has an enormous heart and who is an all around a great
guy. Someone who has confidence balanced by warmth; someone who
goes after what they want. Someone looking for an emotional and
intellectual equal. Must love cuddling. Bonus points for being two
or more steps down the path to being what you want to be when you
grow up. Even more bonus points for being Jewish and taller than
(Turns out, the Jewish thing may be more than just
bonus-points-worthy-- it might be a dealbreaker. I know I want to
have a Jewish house and Jewish kids eventually, so being on board
with that as a possible "someday" scenario is, I guess, a
Other than that, I defer to your judgement, though I can't
guarantee that will happen often (that's the downside of almost
always being right). If you fit the bill, I look forward to hearing
