Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am a simple and easygoing creature of habits, some actually good,
who seeks a loving companion for exploring the City, quiet evenings
at home, time on the beach or in front of the fire at my beach
house on Long Island's North Fork, bicycle rides, tennis or
kayaking. So, how do I spend my working days? I have had the
privilege of working for 30 years in a rewarding and fascinating
position handling litigation over important public projects that
have helped shape the City's landscape. I would like to find the
right woman with whom I can take greater advantage of our City's
many cultural offerings. I like going out to eat, but I am a
dedicated carnivore who barbecues regularly. I would describe
myself as a decent cook and I can even make a couple of vegetable
dishes. I enjoy going to the movies and theater, watching HBO and
Showtime, and all of the New York sports teams. I like to head out
to the North Fork to relax whenever I can.

I hate speculating about what others think. Maybe: my eyes (I have
two) or the back of my head, depending on how we're oriented; that
I'm sarcastic, yet lovable; that I'm a bit shy; and/or that while
earnest in my work and aspirations, not all that I say should be
taken entirely seriously, even here (I rarely stalk or trap).

I like detective novels (Raymond Chandler; Ross MacDonald) and
humourous fiction (TC Boyle, Carl Hiaasen, John Irving); most
movies except horror movies; Broadway shows; many rock, soul,
country and blues artists and some classical music; and any food
not moving too fast to put a fork in it, particularly Chinese,
