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.
I just moved to New York and have settled into the East Village
from Minnesota. Its so much more fast paced here but I really like
it so far! 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 do take exercise and fitness seriously enough, but it isn't
everyone's cup of tea and that's fine. I don't judge for
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.
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. 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. 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.
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'm always willing to lend
a hand if someone needs it.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Definitely my size. I'm 6'4" and not terribly skinny.
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.
Just getting back into reading for pleasure. Its been a long time
reading just textbooks and it sort of kills the desire to. But if
you have any recommendations, please tell me! 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.
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!
I'm less confident than I look!
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.
