Saying something especially sincere will almost certainly come off
as cliche and trying to be wildly funny would be immature. Suffice
it to say, I'm a sane, fun, educated, gainfully employed,
reasonably well-adjusted fellow who -- despite being a born and
raised New Yorker -- finds the whole "scene" here to be a bit much.
The importance of how you looked or what you wore may have been
more important than what you had to say when we all were just out
of college, but now I daresay it's the other way around. Yes, looks
still matter -- my libido works quite well, thank you -- but you're
just as likely (if not more so) to turn me on with witty banter
than a low-cut top and a short skirt (if you offer both, you're a
dream come true).
What I’m doing with my life
I chose a career in the arts (on the business side), thus crushing
the hopes of Jewish mothers everywhere about their son, the
doctor/lawyer/accountant, etc. Actually, to be fair, she's always
been very supportive. OK, maybe more so now that I've achieved a

Besides work, I love to travel and don't get to do so nearly as
much as I'd like. Many places still on the list to explore. Music
and culture are a meaningful part of my life even away from the
office. Sports as well -- though more as a spectator than a

golf, basketball and tennis close behind).
The first things people usually notice about me
My sense of humor. I tend to be the funny one. Or try to be.
OK, and my eyes. People often insist they are colored contacts, but
nope, they're all mine.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'm an avid moviegoer and will see almost anything, with the
possible exception of horror flicks.
Ditto for music -- I'll listen to just about anything, though I
can't claim to have encyclopedic knowledge of anything. Old school
Billy Joel and Elton John will get me every time, though.
Food: Italian, Chinese and steak are certainly my faves. Very
conventional, I know.
The six things I could never do without

Hot water pressure
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The lottery winners whose lives were ruined by the fortunes they
won, and how I'm determined to be the exception that proves the
