Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a pretty quiet person, and I mostly keep to myself because I
quite honestly just don't enjoy the company of most people. I
suppose you could say that I'm picky about who I open up to, but I
prefer to use the word selective. The problem with this is I've
become so used to ignoring others that when I actually do want to
talk to someone I'm not entirely sure how to go about it. So yes,
I'm somewhat socially awkward. Even though I generally prefer to be
alone I've come to realize that I'm actually lonely.
I enjoy reading, writing, martial arts, philosophy, history,
movies, anime, and video games among other things. I love a good
story, no matter the format. I really enjoy learning new things,
but this can be selective. If something interests me I'll learn
everything I can about it, nut if it doesn't then I can't be
bothered. For instance math never held any interest for me so I
never bothered to apply myself to it.
My beliefs would best be described as agnostic, both because I am
of the opinion that you can neither prove or disprove the existence
of god, but also because I just don't care. I find the question of
whether or not god exists to be irrelevant. Either way it isn't
going to change the way I live my life. I'm pretty intolerant of
those who push their beliefs on others and blindly argue without
listening to reason, but if you keep your beliefs to yourself then
I have no issues with you. I'm a strong believer in living your
life however you want as long as it doesn't interfere with anyone
else living theirs the way they want. Aside from that I have my own
personal set of beliefs that I've developed over the years, which I
won't get into here. I consider myself a philosopher so I'd be very
interested in talking to someone who I could have a nice
philosophical conversation with. I'm not the kind of person who
will refuse to admit that I'm wrong when confronted with a good
argument. I make it a point to question myself, and think everyone
should do the same now and then.
I have a strong wanderlust in me. I want to travel the world and
experience and learn so many different things. I can't imagine
wanting to stay in one place your whole life. Maybe because I've
never really felt at home anywhere, but still it seems like
something I just have to do.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Trying to take over the world.
I've recently decided that at some point I'd like to walk across

Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.

People usually think I look pissed off, which is interesting
because I'm usually not.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I read a lot of classics, although I'm starting to branch out into
some more contemporary stuff. Some of my favorite books include,
The Count of Monte Cristo, Musashi, Siddhartha, Dune, Don Quixote,
Dracula, etc... I also like Neil Gaiman and various sci-fi and
fantasy books. I feel that the fantasy genre is generally
disappointing though. In a genre where anything is possible, it
seems that most people tend to stick to the same old tropes.
When it comes to movies it's hard to narrow it down to just a few,
though my favorite movie of all time is The Fountain. Darren
Aronofsky is an amazing director. In general I like movies that
make me think. I also tend to watch a lot of foreign films. I don't
watch much TV anymore. Pretty much the only shows I keep up with
are Doctor Who, Dexter, and True Blood... back when I still had
cable I watched a lot of Discovery and History.
I'm kind of a snob when it comes to pizza. I'm originally from New
Jersey and I've come to the conclusion that if you aren't from the
Northeast then you don't know what real pizza is. I'm also a big
fan of Japanese food.
I have a mild obsession with tea, particularly jasmine and chai.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My imagination, a notebook, a pen, and a hot cup of tea. I know
that's only four thing, but whatever.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Just about everything. Life, the world, history, nature, human
nature, dreams, the unexplained, myself, story ideas that are
always popping into my head. I think too much. I often find myself
with multiple trains of thought going on at once.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Doing the same thing I do every night, Pinky...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I spent two weeks in a mental hospital for depression.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You can be the Morticia to my Gomez.
You have any interest in talking to me and think that I would enjoy
talking to you.
You think you can crack my shell and are willing to try.
You can draw and would like to make a comic book with me. I've been
wanting to do that for a long time but alas I lack the artistic
talent. So it would be nice to collaborate with someone who
provides the artwork while I provide the story.
I'd really like to meet someone who I can have some intelligent
conversations with, and I'm open to many subjects. It's been a long
time since I've had a good conversation with anyone.
If you live somewhere interesting that I might like to visit and
would like to show me around.
If you want to fight a duel with me. No one ever wants to do that.
