(The following was C&P'd from a questionnaire. I just can't write an "about me" in earnestness. It's accurate but don't take the answers too seriously.) I split my time between Michigan and New York with work. I appreciate people and I think that makes things work out in ways I can't predict. Does that make sense? If you have personality, are outgoing, interested in the world around you, we'll get along. Kind, trustworthy, loving, fun, empathetic and caring too? Surely that isn't so rare. Being down to earth and not taking life and myself too seriously are important but so is being responsible and accomplishing things. We all have our types. I've dated the prettiest girl in the room which may be a character flaw of mine, but charisma, confidence, big personality and how one carries themselves are important rather than simply appearance. Oh, and a little crazy is great, just be still functional, brilliant crazy not the bad crazy. Try it with me, being full of life, not sweating the small stuff, ready for a new adventure at any moment (-that was stolen, but it summarizes everything). I like to laugh, I'll jump into help.. I'm happy at the Tikki bar, happy being pulled along by the hand by a laughing woman... I'm pretty blessed; educated, financially well situated, in good shape physically, and have a circle of good friends and family. To cherish above all things the person who loves me and their love, especially if I love them is the biggest lesson I've learned in life so far. Female friends talk incessantly about too many guys being really "basic" and blah, tasteless, so I try not to be. Boring, mousey and overly-reserved isn't good in either sex. I know you can't always wear make-up, do your hair, get a tan, wear a dress or gown- but do you want to be all utilitarian ALL the time? It's great to workout and diet but it's also okay to get sun, eat and drink too and to look like ya do. My suggestion? Sing, dance, be loud, silly, sweet; engage people! Have fun with your hair (go big or go home?), wear big sunglasses or wear the sexy choker. Wear a flower in your hair and hand it to someone... send the sexy pic or recording of you singing to the guy you love... send it to me if you're Haifa Wehbe. What I’m doing with my life... I'm simple and I know what I want. I want good conversation, a good laugh, good food, good sex, good health, a good workout or dancing or whatever... to know business is good, to know I did a good deed, and to know people I care about are good. Above- to be loved with full commitment. If that happens and with some variation, I'm happy. To me, the best thing that can be said is that I'm a good person and friend- I hope I'm that. My family roots are mostly from Cuba and Lebanon (which means I really dance well. Not really. I do debka and salsa occasionally and soca too and I'm passable)... It's rare for me but I'm no stranger to hookah lounges, I will smoke a cigar on a special occasion with a bourbon or mojito at an event or even arak - it is no more bitter than life itself. You're welcome to join me but it's not a must. My household was religiously mixed, our practice intellectual more than ritual- religion does play a part of my life. Um, I did an MBA/MPA at NYU and Cornell but left law school though I loved it - gotta grow up sometime. By the same token I wish I had just used the money and years to do something else, just don't know what. So work is at an international consulting firm dealing real estate, financial investment and management, immigration (business and professional related especially) and legal issues. It's fine for now but... I also work at a university and do some college admissions /financial aid advising- pro bono at times to keep up the good karma. I formerly worked in international policy so I'm always up for a discussion of international relations, policy, sociology, etc. Whatever you do I'm fine, and whatever your goals and dreams are, I wanna help. It's an odd quirk. I enjoy helping people "potentiate" I think the word is. I'm in suits or jackets during the week but I'm happy to be casual, wear guayaberas, be at a tropical beach, hike, fish, etc, BBQ, DIY hobbies. (Once lived on a farm). I’m really good at: Projects. Being of help and improve the lives of other. Having information that may or may not be useful? Good convo. Excellent at fixing problems, often by using lateral thinking. Calculated risks. More than anything, being a good friend. Favorite books, movies, shows, music, food and art: Authors; F. Scott Fitzgerald, Guy de Maupassant, Nizar Qabbani, Evelyn Waugh, Elizabeth Nunez, Nick Hornby, Frantz Fannon, Ghassan Kanafani, TS Eliot, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Gore Vidal, Carl Jung, Sigmund Freud, Pierre Bourdieu ... This is silly, a favorite book list for me would just go on too long. Films: Criterion Classic type of films but also Wedding Crasher type of films if that means anything. Horror films with someone else. I've seen the "deep" and "make you think" films (Ingmar Bergman I'm looking at you), so I'm a little more light comedy and silly right now. Shows: I don't get to watch much television these days but I guess Frasier, Masterpiece, First 48 Hours, South Park once in a while if I'm vegging out, or a business as background when working? College sports, especially Michigan teams, New York teams. Food: Thai, Comida Criolla, Lebanese, Moroccan, Mexican, Argentine and Brazilian BBQ, BBQ in general... Salads, salmon, fruit smoothies and a weird love for pistachios pretty much is what usually happens. Tacos. Really it's easier to list what I don't like. I don't like pho. The word annoys me. Music: Everything- Acoustic, R&B, Trap, Electronic, Rap, Reggae and Soca/Calypso, Classical, Classic Rock, old Country, Arabic, Latin (Salsa, Rumba, etc.) I'm very analytical but I also love art and culture and being creative and expressive in a non douchey, non pretentious way. That can be painting, clothes, food, music, photography, interior design, architecture, sketching. I spend a lot of time thinking about: Enjoying now, preparing for the future, people who I love. Planning a vacation. And too often I think of what I messed up by being stupid and insensitive but I've learned the lessons and am better for it. You should message me if: You want to get to know me. And if you consider yourself caring, sweet, open, energetic, confident, loving and loyal. If you look like Haifa Wehbe, nothing else matters, just immediately contact me. Just want to give you heads up with that. ;-)
