My self-summary
I'm a study in contrasts: equally the homebody and the adventurer; the goof off and the den mother; the wallflower and the attention whore.

I'm unpretentious and unfussy, but I appreciate the finer things in life. I'm honest to a fault, but I've gotten a lot better at keeping my big mouth shut. I'm an unapologetic nerd and love to learn and solve problems. As a rule I value simplicity and the long term over flashiness and instant gratification.
What I’m doing with my life
I work in strategy at a large consulting firm. (What the hell does that even mean? Don't worry, I always get can get the details in person.) Essentially, I'm a professional problem solver, and as boring-sounding corporate jobs go, it's great fun...except for when it's not. But usually, it is.

I've largely followed my career around since college, but as soon as I got to NYC two years ago I knew I was home. People talk about the luster wearing off after a while, and maybe it does, but the more I know about and experience New York, the more I love it. I feel like I live in a movie every day.

My home base is very important but I also love travel. I try to plan one or two big trips every year to somewhere I've never been. I like all kinds of vacations: active, quiet, city, beach, mountains, you name it. And while I'm a big city guy at heart, I also crave nature and every few weeks need to just go walk in a forest or on a beach and cough the city soot out of my lungs.
I’m really good at
Finding humor in everyday life. Cooking comfort food. Questioning conventional wisdom. Accidentally rolling my eyes in inappropriate situations. Keeping my cool when babies stare at me, even though it creeps me out. Parallel parking. Entertaining. Always having a vacation planned. Getting my shoes on and off without untying my laces. Making strong coffee. Listening. Important decisions. Swiping my Metrocard without breaking stride. Making long meaningless lists.
The first things people usually notice about me
Probably how much I remind you of someone you know. I've had an unbelievable number of people tell me this.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Musically, I like a ton of things, but will always gravitate toward true talents. (I can't stand it when "artists" need to use autotune to not sound like crap...what is that about?) I use music to set a mood and have a pretty varied taste. I like some of the newer, up-tempo stuff when I want to dance in the shower or need headphone theme music for weaving through tourists in Midtown. Allman Brothers is perfect for when I'm cleaning or on a crisp Sunday morning. Simon and Garfunkel or Coldplay are my "the weather is crappy and I just want to lie on my couch" soundtrack. I'm on a huge Marvin Gaye kick lately, and I have an unexplainable weakness for anything that sounds good in a roller rink. (This is unfortunately not an opening to a cute date idea. I will fall down, a lot...not cute.)

I like to learn and explore, so anything on TV or in a book that feeds my natural curiosity quickly makes my short list. My inner nerd loves documentaries and any chance to learn something new about something that's already familiar. I've gotten into the binge-TV watching trend and loved OITNB and House of Cards. If you can convince me it has strong characters and good writing, I'll usually give it a shot.

Food-wise, I like pretty much everything so unless you are really into offal or over-processed food, we'll get along just fine.
The six things I could never do without no particular order:

1. A good book, when I want to enjoy a day inside my own head.
2. Strong black coffee. I grind my own beans and yes it makes a difference :)
3. Music, because life should have a soundtrack.
4. Travel, to feed my senses of adventure and perspective.
5. Humor, because life is better when you're laughing.
6. Leftovers, the lazy single man's answer to a home cooked meal.
On a typical Friday night I am
I'm generally a creature of habit during the week and switch to "I crave variety and adventure" mode around noon on Friday. I'm equally happy to go out or stay in, although I don't tend to seek out a bar if no one is pushing me to go. I love to entertain and I throw a mean Friday dinner party/game night.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Once I fell face first onto a greased bowling lane in front of 500 coworkers. I'm pretty good at laughing at myself but that one took a few years to be funny.
I’m looking for
  • Guys who like guys
  • Ages 28–40
  • Near me
  • For new friends, long-term dating
You should message me if
I look for guys with what I call 'the five S's': smart, silly, sexy, sweet, stable. I'm madly drawn to old souls that are happy being themselves...especially ones that have a cute dog I can love on.
