My self-summary
As much I may think I'm crafty with a turn of phrase, these sorts of self-descriptive attempts at catching your eye tend to turn me into a blithering idiot. Trying to be sincere comes off as cliché. Trying to be funny often comes off as immature. Is it sufficient to suggest I'm a sane, fun, educated, gainfully employed, reasonably well-adjusted fellow who -- despite being a born and raised New Yorker -- finds the whole "scene" here to be a bit daunting? Is it too much to ask to find that partner-in-crime who will end up with me in one of those couples videos that are scattered throughout "When Harry Met Sally"?
What I’m doing with my life
I chose a career in the arts (on the business side), thus crushing the hopes of Jewish mothers everywhere about "my son, the doctor/lawyer/accountant, etc." Actually, to be fair, she's always been very supportive. OK, maybe more so now that I've achieved a certain measure of success so she can brag a little to the neighbors.

Besides work, I love to travel and don't get to do so nearly as much as I'd like. Many places still on the list to explore. Music and culture are a meaningful part of my life even away from the office. Sports as well -- though more as a spectator than a participant -- with an emphasis on football and baseball (with golf, basketball and tennis close behind). I can be an incredibly supportive cheerleader for your spinning, cross-fitting, boot-camping, kickboxing, and/or marathoning passion, and I do try to hit the gym 2-3 times per week myself, but I don't yet find my own personal nirvana in such activities.
I’m really good at
The well-timed one-liner. '80s and '90s movie and stand-up comedy quoting. Learning new words in foreign languages with the proper accent.
The first things people usually notice about me
My sense of humor and (apparently) unusually blue eyes.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'm an avid moviegoer and will see almost anything, with the possible exception of horror flicks.

Ditto for music -- I'll listen to just about anything, though I can't claim to have encyclopedic knowledge of anything. Old school Billy Joel and Elton John will get me every time, though.

Not an especially adventurous palate. Italian and Asian food + steak are my most frequent go-tos.
Six things I could never do without
A good mattress
Hot water pressure
The weekend
Air travel
Air conditioning
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The lottery winners whose lives were ruined by the fortunes they won, and how I wouldn't mind being the exception that proves the rule.
You should message me if
You might have occasion to use a semi-colon now and again -- and use it properly.

You have an affinity for, or at least an appreciation of, ketchup.

You can sing well and enjoy doing so publicly (and privately). (Ok, I'll settle for a love of music and the arts in general.)

The number of reality shows you follow closely is less than or equal to three.

You have a highly-developed appreciation for double entendre and innuendo.

You only fit into 3 of the above 5 statements.
