Let's go with this:
Cultural omnivore seeks same. Romance and irony a must.
I think Myers-Briggs is a useful personality test, and have ever
since one former girlfriend found out I was the same type as her
last three boyfriends. For those interested, I score as MBTI Type
INTP. The N, T, and P are pretty strong, the I is less strong, and
more context-based. The more comfortable I am, the more extroverted
What I’m doing with my life
I practiced law in NYC for about five years before deciding that I needed to see if I could make a living in comedy. For the past few years, I have been seriously pursuing a career in comedy, primarily as a stand-up comedian. I am capable of not making jokes when not making jokes is the appropriate behavior. I get some money from that, but I mainly pay the bills doing prospect research.
I’m really good at
Conversation. Singing with enthusiasm if not technical proficiency.
Analyzing and synthesizing reasons and incentives. I have also been
told by multiple others that I have a very good laugh and a killer
The first things people usually notice about me
My dimple comes up, and at the moment I have a fairly full beard. I
am also a big person generally, both in height and (though I
struggle with it) width. I'm not "Mike and Molly"-sized, but it's
enough of a thing that I'm rooting for them to make it. At the same
time, it's not enough of a thing that I watch "Mike and Molly."
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Pride & Prejudice, The Selfish Gene, Live From New
Movies: Topsy-Turvy, Manhattan, Pennies from Heaven.
TV Shows (current): Mad Men, Billy on the Street.
TV Shows (all time): The Simpsons, The Wire.
Music: The Hold Steady, Stephen Sondheim.
Food: Sushi, Italian, Chicken & Waffles.
The six things I could never do without
This seems like the kind of semi-BS category where you're supposed
to write "Coffee! LOL."
I can do without the six things I'm about to list, but they are
things that thoroughly improve my life.
--Comedy podcasts. (Scharpling, CBB, Klausner, others)
--An internet-connected phone.
--The NY Times.
(RIP, the no longer listed 'sliced mango'. I still like you, tho'.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Primarily, how to make people laugh. I find this almost endlessly
fascinating. So simple and so complex at the same time.
Also, I think a decent amount about the news and the culture.
On a typical Friday night I am
At a comedy show or mic.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Here? Jeez. Admitting private things seems like a better thing to
do in person than on the internet. On the other hand, I said my
favorite movie was Topsy-Turvy. I think that probably implies some
reasonably personal things about me. I'd be happy to elaborate with
an individual, as opposed to the universe and the subset of the
universe that owns and/or operates OKCupid.
You should message me if
the above information seems like it describes a person you'd be
interested in dating. And you've got sufficient ovaries to ask a
As far as what I'm looking for, the ability to have good
conversations with is the most important thing by a country mile. I
want a smart, funny woman who lives in NYC and plans on doing that
for some time to come.
No worries if you don't, but if you have opinions about Tom
Scharpling, Louis CK, or the UCB theater, that's definitely a plus.
