ABOUT HIM & WHO HE'S LOOKING FOR

I'm a TV News writer and producer, who spends most of his day working on stories about politics, financial crises, celebrity scandals, and crime... plus the occasional animal who makes friends with other animals of a different species, and thus, is adorable. (Please see: "Monkey who is friends with Dog" and "Cat who snuggles with Squirrel.") I'm pretty good at my job, and I don't take too many things too seriously. Unless they're very serious, in which case I switch to my Serious Face. But that's a hassle, because I keep it in storage, and I have to go get the key, and grab a cab... you know how it is.

Most of my family lives in New York, and my parents are still in the same house where I was raised. Sadly, it's back in Brooklyn, and because I haven't updated my passport, I don't get out there too frequently. (What? It's far.) Happily my brother lives downtown, and I love going down to hang out with him, his new wife, and their dog. (Really, the dog is possibly the biggest draw, but don't tell my brother and his wife.) In all seriousness, my brother is amazing, and I love and respect him completely (but, since he's younger, I occasionally demonstrate my love and respect by sitting on top of him and giving him wet willies. I'm pretty sure that's allowed under the older brother/younger brother birth terms contract. I'd check it to be sure, but it's in storage, near the Serious Face.)

I'm looking for someone who's whip-smart, and sweet. A predilection for witty banter is always a plus, as it allows me to imagine that I live in the West Wing (Sorkin's, not Obama's... though that'd be okay too.) Ideally, you would also enjoy the occasional game of Scrabble, replete with good-natured smack talk (but, be warned, I occasionally like to make up fake words and see if you'll challenge them.) I play a lot of tennis in the summer, and I generally enjoy playing sports more than watching them (you won't find me in front of the TV watching football for hours on end.) I also love a good game of tipsy Ping Pong. Which definitely counts as a sport.

I go out to dinner or order in most nights; I'm relatively certain my oven exists only to provide storage for sad little pots and pans who gaze at me mournfully when I glance in on them, as if to say "Why do you not use us? Why must we remain in your metal prison?"
They're rather good at the guilt trip, those pots and pans.
I enjoy decadent dinners, with seafood towers (mollusks arranged in vertical form are decidedly tastier, I've found) but I'm also pretty happy relaxing on the couch and watching a movie. (Or sitting around coming up with dating-site cliches, apparently.)

I love to write, and I like to debate arcane points of grammar (which is exceedingly nerdy, I understand). I also love reading... Pat Conroy's probably my favorite writer; the sentences and stories that he constructs are just beautiful. I held out for years, refusing to get a Kindle, because I love the feel of a book in my hand, and the smell of the pages (nerdy also, check). But finally a buddy bought me one, and honestly, it's changed my life. I've read dozens of books this year (I read very quickly. It's like a superpower, but much, much, less impressive. Had someone offered, I would have chosen the ability to fly. Astonishingly, no one offered.)

I also enjoy taking things apart and "fixing" them. I'm surprisingly handy for a Jewish New Yorker, and my track record's decent: the DVD player, TV, and vacuum now work, but the toaster stubbornly refused to come back to life. Oh, and if you have any furniture you need assembled, I'm your guy. I find it weirdly relaxing.

My job is a little stressful sometimes, so my favorite vacations tend to be those that involve a beach, a hammock, and some sort of drink served out of a coconut.

Last read:

I read a lot. My favorites this year include The Book of Joe by Tropper, Indiscretion by Dubrow (kind of a modern-day Gatsby, but more salacious), Chanel Bonfire by Lawless (crazy memoir), and and a terrific novel by Jojo Moyes, called Me Before You.
