Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I enjoy lively conversation, and tend to be both serious and a bit
ironic and enjoy jumping between the two.
A good day, for me, might start with a brisk walk through Central
Park to my office, lots of hours then spent treating challenging
patients, and perhaps dinner in an ethnic restaurant discussing
with my (hypothesized) romantic partner an upcoming trip to Berlin
or maybe Shanghai. I take a trip each summer and have been to quite
a few places that have great histories, proud people, and natural
beauty. I went to St. Petersburg and Scandinavia last year. I have
traveled with a girlfriend and a few times alone, and found both to
be great fun. Still, with the right romantic companion I believe
that my life (both here and abroad) will be enhanced tremendously,
and that I can make her life much better too.
Here's an idea of fun times, in my opinion: Go to Metropolitan
Museum show on the Mongol Empire's conquest of Persia (featuring
things like Persian rugs with wild dragons in them); debate with my
mate or date how many languages are being spoken at this very
moment in the Museum; go out later in search of Mongolian food (and
enjoy the fact that, in New York, you can find it).
I am sincere, skeptical, and like to banter
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I wanted to find work that was intellectually and philosophically
challenging, that involved perfecting a craft, and that allowed for
some meaningful care for the needs of others. When I was on a more
academic path I found no desire to think about my work while on
trains or in the shower, or talk about it at a party. I thought
that was a bad sign. My chosen professional life (psychologist) has
proven very satisfying. I enjoy having a general psychotherapy
practice--my oldest patient is over 80, my youngest is 4 years old.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Thinking, kidding around, planning foreign trips, finding my way
into interesting conversation.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I speak in mostly well-formed sentences, but am less cerebral and
more inclined to goofiness than I may imply. Also, I am curious and
know a little about lots of things.

Recently reading: The Yiddish Policemen's Union (fiction); Europe
in the High Middle Ages (nonfiction). Listening to a band called
the Flamin' Groovies, Cesaria Evora, remastered early Beatles, and
Tosca with Maria Callas.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Mangoes, BBC News with Sue Montgomery, TripAdvisor.com, NYTimes, my
friend N., and walking the three miles to work very briskly while
listening to music with a beat.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
To be perfectly honest, how much I'd like to find a relationship
that is both relaxing and stimulating--one where I enjoy my
partner's world and even her friends, and she can enjoy mine!
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
bushed. But up for good food.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I see nothing wrong with a person of one gender using the opposite
gender's one-person bathroom in a restaurant. Oh, maybe knock
