About Me

Here I am all shiny and new to online dating. I finished grad school in ‘06 and since then I’ve spent little time in the bars or out and about meeting new people. In fact, if you don’t work downtown and aren’t interested in hedge funds, then there’s no way I would’ve met you before now.

Needless to say, my job has sort of overtaken my life and now I’m trying to get back on the bus and into the world of dating. First stop?

I’d be lying if I said I didn’t want a relationship, I do. But I’m not about to just jump into one. I’m much more interested in meeting someone for a fun date and seeing where that takes us. I don’t jump into decisions at work and there’s no way I’ll jump into a relationship either.  For now, I’m interested in going out, having fun, and getting to know someone who will respect my job and all the time it requires of me.

If it turns out we make better friends, great, and if it’s more than that, then even better.

So here’s the real questions. Do you know what a hedge fund is?

Profile critique

One good thing – Craig did a good thing by asking a question at the end of  his profile. Now, whoever decides to e-mail Craig has a conversation starter.

One not-so-great-thing – There’s no need to announce that your new to online dating. Many people say this in their profiles because they are uncomfortable with online dating and they want to make it known that they are “new.” For whatever reason that makes the whole experience better somehow. We were all new to online dating at one point or another so there’s no need to justify it.
