Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I used to have a full essay here, but I'll shorten things up and
make life easy for anyone reading.
First thing, I will only be in Madison until mid june, so a
committed relationship isn't as much of a priority as much as
finding people to explore town with.
As far as education, I just finished at UW with a double major in
finance and entrepreneurship, plus a certificate in Middle Eastern
studies (half Iranian, halfway capable of speaking farsi).
In the summer, I'll be shipping off to New York to do investment
banking on wall street.
I do take exercise and fitness seriously enough, but no I don't
love talking about it. And no, I don't want to talk about crossfit
I love to do things outside (though I'm trying to branch out on
this and do more), but I'm definitely okay spending a night in too.
Definitely a gym rat and care a lot about my fitness, but I don't
expect everyone to. I have a couple of really great roommates and
friends, and I love to go out on the weekends when I get the chance
to. I think I can pretty easily be called an open person, and I'm
always happy to make new friends too.
For those who are about to ask, that is my family's dog, not mine.
So you can't cuddle with him! But I am wanting to get my own dog in
the near future. Definitely prefer big dogs over the tiny ones.
Bernese Mountain Dogs and Golden Retrievers are my favorites.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Like I had said, I am heading to New York in the summer to work in
the financial services sector. It will be interacting with hedge
funds mostly. I figure it's not the place to name the company
publically, 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.
Putting together a killer workout (Not so good at avoiding overuse
injuries. Shin splints for 2 years now). Studying, as sad as that
sounds. Was pretty good at soccer, had a rocket in tennis.
But mostly, I'm good at being the good guy for people. I don't try
to act like a goody two shoes, and I don't judge people for who
they are. But when push comes to shove, I'll be ready to step up.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Definitely my size. I'm 6'4" and I've been a weight lifter since I
was in middle school basically.
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.
Can't say I've read a whole lot for novels lately, but my friend
loaned me a copy of Game of Thrones so I'm working my way through
that. Not bad so far. Other than that, all of my reading has been
textbooks. So unless you get your jollies from Derivative Financial
Securities, I don't think we'll have many books in common.
For movies, I'm pretty easy to please, but my top picks are Dumb
and Dumber, anything Mel Brooks, most dramas, some action movies.
Rom Coms aren't really my thing, but I'm not universally opposed to
them either. Just try to pick a good one if you plan to try to
force one on me.
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!
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 much.
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.
Diet and exercise science, space, the move out east (I've only even
been there once so it's a big deal).
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!

You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're a fun person I guess. Honestly if you're a level headed
person and actually have an interest in talking some, then you'd be
the kind of person I'd talk to. It bugs me so damn much when people
give the shortest answers possible.
