Currently work for a high tech software startup. Just finished my law degree and am exploring a career switch. Been thinking about San Fran or Manhattan. I work from home about 11-12 hours a day and, well, that's about all I do. The house is a wonderful old house in a historic district north of downtown with a very relaxed vibe to it.
Usually too tired to go out, but typically my friends drag me somewhere at least on the weekends. Not much of a bar guy.
I love museums like Moma or the Cooper Hewitt. I go every time I'm in Ny. I have no interest in sports, except maybe soccer/golf. I generally don't watch tv unless it is cspan. I love political debate. I love high tech toys. I love movies but not rom-coms. I have a passion for terroir and like to pretend I know a lot about wine. I don't know maybe I just like a good glass every so often. Napa and French country are some of my favorites. I think I am past Italy, but I'd never pass up a chance to do Florence again.
I will argue with anyone about anything. I usually win, and not by force. There, that's my ego at work. People say I'm both a smart ass and a nice guy. I like to listen more than talk, which some people find a bit strange. I admit that I fall into the nice guy category lately, in that I do things like listen to NPR for fun, am overly sensitive and hyper aware of other's feelings, and never really bother to deal with approaching women. Too many good relationships that last a long time but then just seem to stall. I think it's because I have some boundaries but I don't put my foot down right away. It takes a long time to get to know me.
I make terrible witty jokes all day long, to the point where you probably want to punch me in the arm. And then I tell even more! The story of the panda who eats shoots and leaves pretty much sums it up.
I am never the center of the party. I only have close friends and suck at maintaining casual friendships. Socializing has never been my strong point. Inane debates on policy on the other hand and you will have my full attention, for possibly hours. But beware, I spend a lot of time reading giant boring books on things like constitutional law.
I'm looking for a woman to balance it all out, and to lower the seriousness, and to have fun and enjoy life together. All I ask for is honesty. Pretty much have zero tolerance for mind games. Oh, and a good smile. If you think you got those two qualities, well then what are you waiting for?
