Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Unashamed dance and computer nerd. Although apparently both appear
to be a bit fashionable now so let me tell you I was doing it
before it became cool. Take that hipsters.
I'm married to the beautiful Vyctryx
and we have an equally beautiful
daughter. My wife and I are polyamorous for want of a better
I am the sort of person that enjoys life without having to do
anything outlandish. I suppose it's like being a contented sort of
a person, but with more verve.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Making games again. It's probably what I do best and feels good to
When I have the time I like to dance ballroom, Latin, West Coast
swing, and probably a lot of other styles. Admittedly those
opportunities have been limited this year, although the right
partner could always change that :)
Allegedly I can also play musical instruments, although short of
practice it tends to sound more like an attempt to play a musical
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Not keeping my profile up to date. I'm either getting better or
worse at that depending on how you read the statement.
I think I'm a reasonable dancer, matched only by my ability to
One would hope I would be at least serviceable with technology too,
given it's what I'm involved with most of the time.
Talking with unnecessary volume.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Apparently that I'm super friendly. I don't really know what that
means but I have a picture in my head of Snoopy with an open grin
and handshake greeting.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Firstly, I'm openly proud that I have read more than one book this
year. In fact it's the first time I've read a book in over 5 years.
I tend to read biographies or autobiographies as real stories are
the best - unless they're boring in which case they're the
Also, people who know me well know I have trouble sitting through
movies. Anything longer than an hour and I get a real case of the
"I could so be doing somethings".
For TV I've enjoyed Glee, Death Note, and Boston Legal, and I also
enjoyed listing those shows in that order. I watch a lot of cricket
and football during respective seasons.
Musically I'm an eclectic, but not in the hipster sense of the
word. I grew up listening to Pet Shop Boys, Depeche Mode, and New
Order. Recently I've enjoyed Karnivool, Royksopp, and whatever the
exact opposite of Nickelback is. I have a classical music
upbringing too, and love the Russian composers and Mozart. I could
probably talk for hours about music alone.
For food, I will go anywhere that has good coffee within reason.
I'll draw the line at eating concrete but really good coffee is
worth almost anything.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
b. Family. More specifically mine.
iii) Something to stop me from being bored.
[five] I remember John Carmack once saying he would take a compiler
if he were stuck on a desert island. I can relate to that. Although
wifi on the desert island would also be useful in that
* A sense of humour. Preferably mine, but really most people's will
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The nature of existence. The nature of thought. Should I be using
one space or two after every full stop?
The latter point probably more than the first two.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
These days it's getting hit with balls. Really hard.
On occasion I also get to hit people with balls.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
One time I accidentally the whole thing.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
1. You like my profile. This one isn't actually mandatory. I'm
quite ok with people who don't like my profile messaging me.
2. You aren't a bot. I don't even know if OkCupid has bots, but if
you are bot you have been warned.
3. You're poly-friendly.
You should especially message if you like going for coffee.
