Try to err on the side of listening rather than talking - sometimes it works out other times not so much. Will be a harsh judge upon myself but always allow and assume extenuating circumstances for others - strangely one-sided view that I am hoping to come across more often than not.
Lived in Brooklyn for a couple of years - city was nice but I am not a big city guy at heart. Moved to Montclair NJ late May 2017 and I really like the area a lot. Definitely more my type of city.
Pretty busy with work but this is a pretty common issue, so no excuses from my perspective, just being up front about it.
I am a real sucker for raw fish - both sushi and ceviche - would choose the later over the former if I was forced but it's sort of a Sophie's choice for me.
finding the silver lining to the situation, but then usually just ignoring it
being in nature - i was a Lumberjack in MN for a period of time - no joke
Movies: bit of a film buff, so, yeah, this is a long list
Music: Alternative, 90's, jazz, classical - basically everything but commercial rap and country
Food: adventurous - if it's good enough for someone to cook it, that implies it is good enough to try (at least once)
you want to get a drink and discuss all those things that no one else seems to be interested in
you want more info
you have a good head on your shoulders and would like to meet someone else who is cut from a similar cloth
