Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a bit odd.
I feel this is a good thing.
More often than not, I come across as being more than a little
dorky, but I'm by no means that nerdiest kid on the block.
I can switch between being introverted and extroverted fairly well,
and I need to spend time doing both in equal amounts. As a result,
you will often find me reading in public; it's the best of both
worlds. Come talk, and I'll quickly set down the book or iPad to
converse. I may live in my head a little more that is strictly
recommended, but I'm more than willing to come out and play.
I already had a degree in psychology, but I recently went back for
another in global software development. The change in gears has
been an interesting one, though I'm still not sure where it will
take me. For right now, I'm working as a consultant, helping design
solutions to help other companies improve their task flow and
product/systems usability. It is a nice combination of my two
degrees, but I hope to shift into working for a real firm.
I'm happily married, but don't let that scare you off. If you know
nothing about open relationships and/or polyamory, ask. I'm not
looking for a secondary, but rather another equal. Hierarchy is for
businesses, not relationships.
I'm not a fan of gender norms. Everyone can do everything.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm still trying to figure this part out.
I hope to have it at least half solved by the time I die.
Until recently, I'd been living life in Oulu, Finland. I was there
as a result of a long series of complicated events, which I don't
think I'd've ever gone there without. Given this, I'm glad I had my
time in Finland, as I've learned a lot and grown as a person.
I'm now back in the US and looking to re-establish some roots. I
have no clue where I'll end up, but I'm looking forward to the
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
A number of different things, but none of the ones popping into my
head have any real-world applications.
After forcing myself to think about it, I'd say I have fairly good
people-reading skills. I'd also like to think that I multitask
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have a face?
I'm not from around here?
Aside from that, I don't think I'm all that much of an open book. I
don't try to hide much, but I just don't wear my personality on my
To be honest, I'd really like to know the answer to this question,
since I'm not one of the people doing the noticing.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Hard science-fiction
Far reaching, cold, vacuum of space, polymer and metal, space
operas. I venture away from this as often as not though. I almost
always have something to read with me.
If the hero died, I probably liked it. If the villain was
glorified, more of the same. Really though, I'll watch almost
anything. Please note that I reserve the rights to utilizing the
"almost" in the previous sentence.
Music: Loud & synthetic
I was briefly an industrial/synth-pop DJ for a small club in
Portland, Maine. I miss music greatly, since Oulu was not on the
tour routes for anything but poorly aging metal bands. I hope to
find my scene here.
Food: Worldly and meatless
I last intentionally ate meat some time in 1998, yet I still
consider myself to be a foodie. It can be done. Asian influence is
a plus, but not required.
Do note that I'm not vegan; I'm NEVER going to give up cheese, as
it is a gift from the gods.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
A serviceable pair of shoes
A good, or at least entertaining, book
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Rules, laws, mores, societal expectations and how to get around
them. Culture shock and how assumptions shape our lives.
One would think that coming back to the US would put an end to
this, but I was gone for too long. Therefore, As a recent
ex-immigrant, I'm in the possition of having to start this proccess
all over again. Still, I think knowing is worth the effort.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Trying to be awesome.
"Trying" may, rather unfortunately, be the operative word, but I'll
get there sooner or later.
I spend most Fridays in, but I'm happy to tag along if anyone has
any brilliant ideas.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

I'm sure this is unoriginal, but doesn't it stop being private if I
admit to it on OK Cupid?
If you really want to know something about me, why don't you ask?
There are very few things I won't tell someone if asked directly.
You should message me if
