Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm an introvert with a public job -- I guess that means I'm a
walking contradiction. I can work a room but need downtime to
I'm industrious, thoughtful, talented and skilled at many
I am passionate about my own growth and development but not high
strung or too tightly wound. Napping is never a challenge.
I'm pretty committed to living out loud, as they say. I enjoy my
public job and I also know the difference between being in the
public eye and my private life at home.
I'm a writer so I could go on but I'd rather discuss any of this
over coffee or a walk.

The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
No idea. I'm tall and my head is shaved. People sometimes seem
compelled to rub the top of my head.
One of the first things I notice about them are their shoes. No
foot fetish here, but good shoes catch my eye.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I spend a lot of time in non-fiction land so I really enjoy
mysteries -- the Swedes and Norwegians especially. It's a great
escape from work.
I love Indian food -- I live near "Curry Hill" so I'm often

Movies run from light romantic comedies (that are well-written and
performed) to challenging cinema. Love action movies and things

I like smart writers who don't make a point of reminding you how
smart they are.
I put myself through college playing drums so I have a good sense
of time and rhythm. I like songs I can sing along with.
Silence is fine too sometimes. The sound of the tide coming in is
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I've done without plenty. I'd prefer to not be without:
Clean water (for drinking and/or bathing)
Loving and thoughtful people, especially ones I already know
The ability to communicate
The opportunity to touch another person
A view of something green and living out of doors (if indoors)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
People I love
People I haven't met yet
The concept of god/spirit/universal something within each living

Why so much about organized religion seems to divide people rather
than unite them -- what's that about?
How I can do/be better
What I need to clean up

any of the above piques your interest.
You should have a sense of humor and be passionate about something.
I'm pretty driven and if you're just hanging out, it won't bother
me but it might bother you.
I love to laugh -- I'm serious about my work but I also appreciate
the big and small absurdities that make up life every day.
Hopefully you can remind me of them when I'm holding onto something
that is causing me grief and I can do the same for you.
