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've been single for a few years now, and while I love my friends
and my independence, I'm also ready to meet a great guy and build
Let's split a bottle of 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 use my travel benefits as much as I can and I love
flying to a beach for a weekend with a big stack of magazines and
Outside of work, I like to run and read and play old lady games
like mah jongg. I'm always game for grabbing drinks, having a meal,
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 to buy the cheapest
- Throwing big dinner parties
- 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 not a permanent fixture, but I've had it now for a
while. I find that people make the oddest offhand comments about it
(like, "I'm in awe of your man hair" -- true story).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I love to read. I'm in two book clubs and teetering on the edge of
being able to keep up. Recent great books include A Constellation
of Vital Phenomena, Portnoy's Complaint, and The Door.
From a music standpoint, I have a soft spot for lesbian folk music,
Motown girl groups, showtunes, and newer folk/pop people like
Joanna Newsom and Sufjan Stevens. Please indulge me some Ethel
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. From a TV
standpoint, I'm loving The Good Wife and Grace & Frankie, and
(still) 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 (which have been unceremoniously
removed from GSN and I am distraught)
3. Running shoes
4. A strong fan when I sleep
5. Newspapers and books in print form
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 while walking up
and down the subway stairs.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Most likely having a very relaxed dinner or drinks with friends at
home or out.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I often wonder why sex is not discussed in a more upfront way in
these profiles. It's very important to most of us -- arguably more
so than things like the TV and music we like.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
If you'd be up for getting together and grabbing a drink. I think
first dates are fun.
And as we say at work, "feedback is a gift." Constructive feedback
on the profile is always appreciated.
