Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
how does one summarize the self? i'm a person of passion and
curiosity--almost to a fault. i believe in travel and constant,
life-long learning. sport and artistic experiences fuel me. i'm
intense and strong-willed; in some ways a very old soul, in other
ways an eternal youth--
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
actively pursuing my dreams and goals--both professional and
personal. i'm a very independent person, with an independent set of
ideas about what makes life actually compelling enough to live. we
go around once, and my life is my own. i'm looking for someone who
shares a similar sense of purpose. and...who can think out of the
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
carrying a tune...i'm a professional opera singer. i'm also pretty
decent at striking a tennis ball--
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
probably my eyes, and...my imposing presence when entering a room??
seriously. this is a toughie. maybe also whatever i'm wearing on a

Help your potential matches find common interests.
books: my favorite novels include moby-dick, the magic mountain,
lolita, and the picture of dorian gray. non-fiction would be all
over the place; but, i have a keen interest in philosophy, history,
and theology. i also read tennis.com every day. and! i wiki a LOT
of random stuff--
movies: i'm pretty broad in my film interests, but i am most into
the golden age of hollywood (bogart, bacall, etc.). being a child
of the 80's, i also love the horror genre! and, some foreign stuff
(fellini, visconti, jean-luc godard). pretty much anything with
catherine deneuve and/or marcello mastroianni. i also like the work
of ingmar bergman--
shows: being a singer, i love live music. places like lincoln
center and carnegie hall in nyc excite me. i also love hitting jazz
clubs. and...the occasional broadway theater.
music: see above
food: i'm a very liberal eater, and enjoy most things...exceptions
being eggplant, beets, artichokes, and stinky cheeses. the best
food is found in small french bistros, but i also am very fond of
italian, and GOOD (read, gourmet) chinese. on occasion, indian food
is very welcomed. and comfort foods! like meatloaf, fried chicken,
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
espresso, books, travel, live OR recorded music, my tennis
racquets, the ocean and mountains--
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
who's going to win the next major tennis tournament, career
aspirations and goals, for what purpose we are actually on earth to
serve. also...if i'm ever going to meet someone who captivates me
enough to settle down and raise a family--
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
checking out the scene in boston...usually nicer hotel bars, but
sometimes staying more local (davis sq., somerville).
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
keeping things quiet in a macy's fitting room, when two people are
super-hot for each other, is amazingly difficult--
