My self-summary
The girl I'm looking for: joyful, intelligent, beautiful and enthusiastic about her passions, particularly if one of those came to be me.

Me: generous, witty, kind.

My idea of a first date would be more like a drink at The Dove Parlour and less like dinner at a fancy Italian restaurant. Simple to begin, just a conversation, easy--

--Maybe that restaurant, definitely that restaurant in the future, lots of restaurants in the future....Definitely looking for a long term relationship with the right woman. So say hello.

Let's not waste any more time…..
What I’m doing with my life
I teach essay/creative non-fiction writing about art at a university downtown. I recently went back to school to become a shrink.

I like the idea of having two different careers simultaneously.

I work out a lot, see my friends, watch a ton of movies, and generally love NYC.
I’m really good at
At least I used to be: dunking a basketball. I also like trying to write amazing sentences. I can make pretty good pasta sauce from scratch. Also, I'm almost always on time. I'm also good at not complaining and balanced, and affectionate.
The first things people usually notice about me
That I'm tall, I suppose, which is an obvious reply to an obvious question.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

I spend a lot of time thinking about
art, family, politics, stories
On a typical Friday night I am
Either out at a bar with friends or reading & writing......sometimes watching basketball. But if I found a woman I liked, well…whatever we were doing, it would be awesome….
You should message me if
If I messaged you, it means I am sincere. So say yes if I ask you out!
The two of us
