I love to make people laugh.
I maintain an active, healthy lifestyle and regularly play rugby, run, do yoga, & bike.
I do all this so I can eat Thai food and 16 Handles on the reg.
Also because doing crunches and learning to safely tackle people engages muscle groups that come quite in handy during certain other activities.
I like having intense conversations about the philosophies and purposes (or lack thereof) of art.
The more stupid the pickup line, the greater the chance of my liking it.
I can't do Karate. Figured that out the hard way.
I'm masculine, sensitive, nurturing, and don't usually get along well with people that find these traits mutually exclusive.
I've got a good head on my shoulders & strong values.
I'm really good at putting spinach and kale into things that spinach and kale should never go. Like cookies.
Natalie Dessay and I once had a great conversation and then she sang to me and it made me tear up. Afterwards. Because I'm composed like that.
Love is great, and wonderful, and painful, and powerful, and I like it that way.
One time I hit a hole-in-one on the windmill hole. Fellow mini-golf enthusiasts will appreciate the nuance this requires.
And now, maybe the most important: I'm looking for a serious relationship that could ultimately be "the" relationship. Not in an overbearing sort of way, but if you're not sure of want you want, I'm probably not your guy.
Also: reading in Central Park, visiting pretty much any museum/gallery, plotting my escape from the country, or lamenting the decline of letter-writing.
Cooking: I'm a nice Jewish boy, and I'll make you a chicken soup your grandmother would be proud of.
Entertaining: My mom raised me to be the consummate host.
Planning adventures: Here or abroad, one pair of underwear or two suitcases for which I had to flirt with the check-in lady to get out of extra baggage fees.
Music: I've been in music management for 5 years and I'm a classically trained singer, so if you're ever longing to have an aria (or a Billy Joel song) sung to you, I'm your guy. Also Billy Joel, but I'm more readily available.
Scrabble: It's a bit lamentable, really; my friends won't play with me anymore.
Using semicolons; in fact, having good grammar goes a long way in my book.
Getting dressed up: it's one of the best byproducts of having a Met subscription.
Playing the spoons -- pretty sure I'm one of the only Jews who knows how to rock out a cèilidh.
Talking about art/philosophy.
Scouring used book stores.
Finding happiness in simplicity.
Being a big spoon.
3.) Joni Mitchell
4.) cycling shoes
6.) Thai food
Philosophy (particularly French & surrealist)
How much of a cop-out the Picardy Third is
What to do on my to do list
When the next time I can take of my pants will be. Seriously. Pants are way overrated. Or maybe wearing boxer briefs to work is underrated. Maybe I'm just going to show up pantsless and see what happens.
How amazing my future family will be.
The best way to get to new galaxies without the Millennium Falcon.
Strategic mapping of the Duane Reade locations that carry chocolate Twizzlers.
Which I could more readily give up: cheese, or (receiving) oral sex. It's a question I struggle with every day.
You are inspired
You get my screen name
You like Bruce Munro, Roger Ballen, Mark Bradford, Kumi Yamashita, Anselm Kiefer, or if you think Damien Hirst should just switch to designing wallpaper.
It doesn't bother you that the guy you're dating will, from time to time, quote obscure poetry and/or Biggie rhymes.
You really, really, really, want to zig-a-zig ahh
