Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a nice, grounded, guy who's easy-going with an ambitious
streak. I value passion, drive, and smarts in others.
I have great friends and a job I enjoy, I love living in NYC and
all that it offers, and I get to travel a lot for work and
pleasure. I've been single for a few years now, and I'm ready to
expand upon all of that with a great guy.
Let's split a bottle or two of great wine at the cool wine bar down
the block. Let's cook a big dinner party for our friends. Let's go
for long runs together and push each other to do better.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I've loved the airline industry ever since I was a kid and now I'm
the guy that you can blame when you think airline tickets are too
expensive. I try to take advantage of my flight benefits as much as
I can, and I love flying to a beach for a weekend in the sun with a
big stack of magazines and books.
Outside of work, I run a lot and seem to always be training for a
marathon (which I'm having some angst about; I may switch to
shorter distances soon).
Other than that, I'm lucky to have a group of great friends in the
city, and I'm always game for grabbing drinks, having a meal,
throwing a big dinner party or just walking around the city. A big
game of Celebrity with friends is about as good as it gets for me.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
- Explaining why the airline industry works in the crazy ways it
does (BTW - there is no "perfect" time at which to buy the cheapest
- Throwing big dinner parties. I really like cooking for big
groups, and can pull together a great meal in a few hours.
- Being reasonable (which can be a blessing and a curse)
- Running for a long time
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My beard. It's a relatively new thing for me -- I grew it last
winter and am debating how long to keep it going. (Update: I shaved
it for the summer.) But I find that people make the oddest offhand
comments about it. One very butch pilot I was in a meeting with
told me that he was in awe of my man hair.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Despite my best effort to work through the backlog of un-read books
on my shelves, I more often than not reach for the last thing I
bought. This is becoming a real problem now that I'm in two book
clubs. Recent terrific books include The Satanic Verses,
Transatlantic, Where'd You Go Bernadette, and The Round
From a music standpoint, I have a soft spot for lesbian folk music,
oldies, showtunes, and newer folk/pop people like Joanna Newsom and
I love going to the movies and usually bring my own popcorn. When
the stars align and some combination of Whoopi Goldberg, Sally
Field, and Kathy Najimy is in a movie, I am very happy. I'm also a
sucker for a cheesy romantic comedy when I'm on a plane. From a TV
standpoint, I'm loving The Good Wife and Suits, and have a very
soft spot for Grey's Anatomy.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Air travel and the ability to fly away on a whim
2. "$100,000 Pyramid" reruns
3. Running shoes
4. A strong fan when I sleep
5. Newspapers, magazines and books in their proper, paper
6. Activities requiring stamina
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Why so many people think it's acceptable to text or read email
while walking up and down the subway stairs. Why I should be
running more. Where to fly next weekend.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I'm equally happy staying in as I am going out, so it's most likely
very relaxed dinner or drinks with friends at home or out.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

I will write someone off if they're wearing those Transition lenses
that get dark in sunlight. I recognize that this is extremely
