Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I try to be easy to get along with, a capable communicator,
self-aware and secure, and make sure to have fun! I strive to be
kind. I have a great group of friends scattered about the world and
love to ponder big ideas with them, joke around, and try new
things. I hope to find someone with whom I have many of these
important things in common.
So many people talk about their hunt for the "right person", but we
have to put at least as much time and effort into becoming the
"right person" too, no? I've been putting in that

What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Did my undergrad at Harvard and MBA at smaller, special schools in
Europe and China. I'm in New York 2.5 years now, studying the world
economy and speculating about the future at a small/entrepreneurial
investment firm. A good track record so far. I love being in the
know about world affairs..
In the off hours, I like seeing different kinds of live music,
exploring exotic cuisines around Manhattan and the other boroughs,
meeting new people, and just really feeling energized by it all.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Being interested in different kinds of people and new ideas.
Various practical talents: I went to Boy Scout-type summer camps. I
like to be capable and to master new challenges! I love languages,
and have dabbled with or attained some proficiency in a few more
than are listed here. I have an ear for music, can dance...
Volleyball, Basketball (not just for being tall :p), team sports in
general to a degree

Changes of scenery, exploring and people-watching

I am less loving than average--wrong!)
Chocolate chips and yogurt (I try to eat healthy, but I have my
Sunny days...help me out a little NYC!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How to use my talents to make the world better.
Which traits I admire in others and how I can adopt them.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Having a good meal, taking in the activity on the street, dropping
in to city social events or shows with friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I bop to the beat of music at retail stores. I want to be a leader
in my field but keep a French work schedule.
