Just thought I would list the typical disqualifying issues that women mention on this site.
Before you delve further into my profile I wanted to dispute one aspect of it. While I mostly agree with Okcupid's assessment of my personality, I disagree that I am extremely arrogant. Unfortunately, there is not an "are you an arrogant douche bag" question, which is far more germane than most of the questions.
I just returned to New York City after spending the previous ten years across the country and world. I was born and raised in Manhattan; however, I fit few NYC stereotypes. I went to college in upstate New York, and I spent the last four years in the Marines.
I love staying active, and I usually run or go to the gym every day of the week. I spend much of my free time reading about history or current international affairs and watching sports (fall weekends are devoted to football). In general, I love learning about other cultures, traveling, and drinking at sports bars.
Before all else, I look for women that are attractive, unique, and fun. Other qualities that I appreciate: women that are athletic(especially runners and crossfitters), have more than a cursory knowledge of world affairs, are more intelligent than I am, are independent, enjoy watching sports, have ambition, and possess a crass and sarcastic sense of humor. Additionally, if you have a number of grammatical/spelling errors in your profile, you probably should not list yourself as fluent in English(and yes that is embarrassing if it is your first language).
Despite my overly sarcastic take on a profile, I am actually a pretty good guy. I have fairly traditional values, and I hate it when people refuse to give common courtesies. I am always the first guy to give up my seat on a bus or help a woman carry her stroller up the stairs in the subway. One of the first things I notice about people is how they treat people in the service industry(i.e. waiters, bartenders, and doormen). I don't think there are many better indicators of a person's ethics.
