This is actually not as important as one might think. I mean, sure, we live in NYC. There are a lot (a LOT) of hot people here, so let’s start with something we can work with. There’s gotta be something that gets you in the door. But the first four items on this list can bump you up a solid number and a half on the hot scale... or down.
This city has artists, activists, researchers, writers, musicians... and Google! (But we really have no idea what anyone does there aside from play foosball and eat sushi.) Point being, New York has some of the coolest jobs in the world. Do you have one of them? Or at the very least do you genuinely love what you do? Because that is pretty cool, too. Or are you dragging yourself out of bed every morning and coming home every evening to complain about bad coffee and lame pleasantries with the marketing department? That’s not my idea of dirty talk.
