Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
In His Own Words
Well-educated, well-read, physical, active. An eternal student. (Be
warned: I am an intellectual. I am geek. That doesn't mean I spend
my days/nights caught in front of a computer screen or behind a
book. I prefer to take my geekiness to the gym, the beach and on
I love to laugh loud, talk deep. I'm passionate about everything I
do--writing, teaching in the classroom, singing, cooking,
stretching my limits in the gym, reading, experiencing the cultural
wealth that surrounds me in New York.
Service is very important to me. I am proud of the two plus years I
spent as Peace Corps Volunteer. I am kind of a bleeding heart
I have a very full life, but I wish that I could make a long-term
romantic relationship work for me. It feels like the Final
I'm looking for someone who is passionate about his life and open
to sharing his passions. Not surprisingly, complacency is one of my
biggest turn-offs. Even though my own interests are very specific,
I don't really need to have someone who shares those same
intellectual or artistic or creative pursuits. I'd much rather find
a man who has his own.
There are few things I enjoy more than a man teaching me about
something he knows and loves.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I just finished my second Master's Degree, this just for the hell
of it. Now I'm trying to finish the book I started whilst getting
the Master's degree.
Constantly in the process of improving the quality of my life and
my relationships with friends and family.
Constantly finding new ways to make my job creative and
Learning to spend less time thinking I need to be constantly doing
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Making messes in the kitchen whilst doing the above
Talking on the phone
Helping friends out
Falling down and breaking things
Walking (provided that I do not do the above)
The first things people usually notice about me

My goofy crooked smile.

My resonant voice.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I can't really begin to list them all. I love Literature more than
almost any other thing.
My all time favorite novels are:
Master and Margarita
The Heart is a Lonely Hunter
The Brothers Karamazov
Toni Morrison's Jazz
Second only to Literature in my life is music. I have very wide
tastes from 20th Century Classical Music, to Ancient Music, from
folk and singer/songwriters, to BritPop. Put a chick behind a
guitar and I'm likely to love her. I'm easy that way.
I want to see more live dance, classical music and opera,
unfortunately I find it too expensive.
Gave up cable tv a few years ago and have not regretted it.
That said I still Hulu:
That so AWFUL it's brilliant "Spartacus" series on Starz. Put a man
in a loincloth and I'll watch it.
Gave up going to many movies a couple of years ago--I prefer to see
live people. I live in New York, why spend my time watching what I
could see if I were still back in Wyoming?
I don't really like most Broadway shows, however. I prefer the
off-off Broadway, small and experimental theatre; I love dance and
almost anything that the Brooklyn Academy of Music puts on a stage.
Taylor Mac. Joe's Pub. The Public Theater.
Taylor Mac's "March across America" & "Lily's Revenge"
Angels in America
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Pencil and Paper. (Is that two?)
Physical and mental exercise.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What I am currently writing.
How long it's been.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Taking up valuable tablespace at a restaurant talking too long with
friends over dinner.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Spirituality is central to me, rather than discuss it or wear it on
my sleeve, I try to live it. Increasingly I find ways to be
delighted with life and experience.
Also, I judge those who think that "it wouldn't be private if I
write it here" is an appropriate answer. Those people make me want
to teach them a class in critical reading. "The most private thing
you're willing to admit" does not mean that you have to share
something everyone would consider private. I rant.

clean up a messy cook. If you possess the wicked balance of culture
and grit. If you love big hugs and big lips.
