About me: I tend to be optimistic and honest to a fault, so I'm sorry for not being a stereotypical grumpy Northeast Jew! I like coffee, NPR, chinese food, good beer, and 80's music. I also enjoy exercising, riding my bike, and skiing - so I'm somewhat active but by no means am I a "gym rat". When I have nothing to do I enjoy watching HGTV or reading an interesting book.. After being on the market for a while now, all I can say is that there's nothing more impressive than a woman who is very smart and down to earth. Sophistication really tends to pique my interest and while I'm not necessarily looking for an intellectual, I would appreciate it if you are capable of doing more than just going to bars and baseball games (not that there's anything wrong with that, but there is life beyond alcohol and sports!). So, if I catch your eye, let's exchange some e-mails and then meet!
