People say I'm kind of a throwback. Yes I tend to get nostalgic and I like 80s music and shun the "latest fashion", and... oh ok I guess I am.
At first I was kind of hesitant to put up a profile like this. It's not easy going back to school after several years away. At first it felt weird and a bit intimidating being around so many younger people, but I've learned to just go with the flow and fit in. I realize that I'm still kind of a kid at heart myself and I've since found several really good friends here and now I often forget the age difference completely.
I love meeting new people and hanging out. 'Nuff said. Anyway I'm always looking to meet new friends so give me a try. Couldn't hurt, right? :)
I am humorous, friendly, and honest
Other than that I'm living on campus at Rutgers trying to re-live my youth (hahaha) :). I was in the computer field for several years but I just wasn't happy and I knew that if I didn't make a change "now" (2 years ago) then I'd never do it. I believe it's not a sin to know what you want to do in life and go after it, even if it means going back to school at 28. Sometimes you just gotta do it! I haven't regretted a single day.
I think I'm pretty good at conversation. I'm fun to be around cuz I'm always thinking of humorous things to say and I do awesome voices! I'm also good at math and computers but why would you want to read about that boring stuff?
B) Movies? Omg I could go on and on! I love dramas, especially psychological thrillers. Second would be sci-fi/fantasy. I like comedies too but they have to be SMART comedies (well thought-out plots, clever humor), not some ghetto/cheap jokes/Rob Schneider crap. I love movies that make you THINK. Turn-offs are shoot-em-up action movies and anything that doesn't require an IQ over 80 to understand. The following should give you a good idea:
Lord of the Rings trilogy, Star Wars saga, Artificial Intelligence, Dead Poets' Society, Titanic, Mr. Holland's Opus, Rudy, The Cider House Rules, The Day After Tomorrow, A Beautiful Mind, Rudy, The Butterfly Effect, Back To The Future, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Fargo, Sleepers, Pleasantville.
As far as TV shows, I don't get to watch TV too much, but I like South Park, Numb3rs, Law & Order.
C) I'm very diverse when it comes to music. In any single day I could go from classical to Simple Plan. Favorites are rock/pop, alternative, 80s, and classical. I'm kind of nostalgic. Turn-offs - Rap/R&B/hip-hop and death metal. And if you're a Bruce Springsteen or Erasure fan then I'm in love with you already! :)
D) Italian and Chinese. Oh and I'm Jewish so every now and then I HAVE to have matzoh ball soup, bagels with lox, gefilte fish and kugel!
A good friend of mine put it best - I'm a dreamer. Most people my age have careers, spouses, and some even have kids. The last two are not for me, at least not yet. Two years ago I realized I refused to be stuck in a go-nowhere career the rest of my life. Coming back to college after a few years away hasn't been easy, but nothing worth it ever is. I always dream of a better life and ways to make that come true. As George Bernard Shaw once said, "Some people see things as they are and ask 'why?' I dream things that never were and ask, 'Why not?'" Yes and I love quotes, glasses
Please note that nothing I say here is "set in stone" - just take them as GENERAL guidelines.
I'm looking for someone who has a good sense of humor, and knows what he wants in life (I don't mean have the next 20 years mapped out, but have at least some vague goal of what it is that you want). You should be somewhat intelligent and witty. Again, I'm neither an intellectual nor a rocket scientist and I'm not looking for one. Just be reasonably mature and have a good head on your shoulders. You should like the outdoors and like doing activities outdoors. I'm not THE most physically active person out there and I'm not your "rugged outdoorsman" but I like spending time outdoors, hiking, playing sports, etc. I also work out 3-4 times a week. Just don't be a couch potato. Be able to be as comfortable with yourself as you are with others. I'm not a party animal - I love going to small parties and meeting people but I also like more intimate or small group situations.
In terms of age, I often act like 21-22 anyway so I really don't care too much about that. I do like younger guys, I'll admit it. But it's mostly because I think I have more in common with them.
Physically? Well I'm human, and being as such looks are at least somewhat important. However I have to say that what I find physically attractive may be a bit unusual. I like guys who are at least average to a bit above average size. Whether it's muscle or a bit of baby fat, I actually think a little padding is a good thing.
Oh btw I find glasses kind of a turn-on. Can't explain why, but there it is! :)
