Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I have realized most people don't read these in the first place. I
used to have a full essay here, but I'll shorten things up and make
life easy for anyone who actually is bothering with the whole
I just moved to New York and have settled into the East Village
from Minnesota. Dealing with a few culture shocks, but I'm finally
feeling settled in. I'm hoping to make some new friends and go on
some dates now that I'm here to liven things up a bit. Being new to
the city can be a little intimidating.
As far as education, I just finished at UW(isconsin) with a double
major in finance and entrepreneurship, plus a certificate in Middle
Eastern studies (half Iranian, and less than halfway capable of
I'm working as an analyst for an investment bank now that I'm
I used to care a lot about exercise and fitness, but these days I
mostly do it as a way to justify eating all of the great food out
here. I like to go to the gym, but its not a big part of my
I like to go out on the weekends when I get the chance to, but I
prefer a lounge sort of bar over the densely packed ones where I
can't hear people. But I also am totally alright with cracking open
a book or putting on a show and relaxing. I think I can pretty
easily be called an open person, and I'm always happy to make new
For those who are about to ask, that is my family's dog, not mine.
But I am wanting to get my own dog in the near future. Definitely
prefer big dogs over the tiny ones. Bernese Mountain Dogs (going to
get one and name him Leeroy) and Golden Retrievers are my
favorites. But Utonagans are beautiful.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Just starting up my new life in NY in financial services. It will
be interacting with hedge funds mostly. I figure it's not the place
to name the company publicly, but message me and I'll be more than
happy to tell you who it is for.
Overall, I'm trying to broaden my horizons in terms of the things
that I am interested in and my passions. I want to try a lot of
things and really get my feet wet. I think having a routine just
gets so dull and boring. Why waste a life on that? So if you're
game to try new things (like hang gliding, blowing glass, or even
just cooking), you'll have my attention, especially if you're
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
getting lost in my own head
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Definitely my size. I'm 6'4".
After that? Shoes probably. My workout shoes are usually pretty
loud these days. I also wear a hat way too often. But I'm phasing
that out haha.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
For books, its been a while since I read for pleasure (college
textbooks don't exactly nurture the desire), but lately I've picked
up Martian and am working through it, and it isn't bad!
For movies, I'm pretty easy to please. One of my favorites is still
The Prestige. Very worth watching if you haven't seen it. Rush is
another great one.
For shows, I'm crazy about Arrested Development and Modern Family.
Archer and American Dad are pretty funny too. Top Gear obviously
(I'm a guy, after all). And Minnesota Sports too! Really though,
what I don't like are comedy shows that pick the low hanging fruit
too often (looking at you, Big Bang Theory). Otherwise, again I'm
pretty easy to please.
As for food, I like Persian, Mexican, Italian, and...well pretty
much anything. I didn't like fish for a long time but I'm working
on that. Still don't care for calamari. Creeps me out so
And last is music. Lets see. I kind of bounce all over the place
really. Haven't yet found much I care for with country, but I'm not
going to reject it just because its country either. All time
favorite single song is Iridescent. Lately I've been more
interested in classical and piano music when I'm not working out.
Ludovico Einaudi has been a staple recently.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My family, good food, a gym membership, a fun car...ummmm....a tv?
And my hat! I wear it too often.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Where to meet new people out here
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Probably out with my roommates at the bars. One thing is that I
definitely prefer a more chill place to have a good beer or some
whiskey with friends, but I can go for a night at the louder places
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
part of me doesn't like being so tall.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You are the type of person who doesn't bother much with chit chat.
I'm a very thought-based person, and intellectual stimulation is
something that I put a lot of value into.
