Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I believe in chivalry and equality and that the world is decidedly
lacking in random acts of kindness. I’m fiercely loyal and will
drop anything for a friend (or a stranger) who needs help.
I’m ambitious, spontaneous, intelligent, realistic, idealistic,
shy, outgoing, and quirky. I travel to strange and exotic places.
The best things in life are shared; I’m looking for my
partner-in-crime, a travel companion, and my best friend.
I enjoy skiing, camping, rock climbing, and volleyball. I've
recently become interested in Japanese language and culture. I'm an
engineer at heart, an astrophysicist by education, a
food-experimentalist on weekends, and a pilot during my lunch
I have an undergraduate and a Master's degree from Princeton, and
now I kind of have a an unhealthy affection for Gothic
architecture. I like the X-Men cartoon from the 80's, and I firmly
believe that guacamole and Bar-B-Q sauce make almost any food
better. I’m Canadian and proud of it. I’ll listen to the same song
a dozen times in a row without getting bored.
I collect spoons but can’t remember when I started or why, and now
I need to think up a new answer to "The most private thing I’m
willing to admit." I prefer large paintings. I tie my shoelaces in
the elevator and I like buying office supplies. I’m really bad at
doing nothing. I miss liking walking in the rain, and I live for
fierce conversations. I want a Siberian husky as a pet. My favorite
opera is Turandot, and my favorite musicals are Les Miserables and
Phantom of the Opera.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Private equity. You can ask me what that means, but, to be honest,
I'm still trying to figure that out myself. Let's just say that I
know more about milk, gasoline pumps, onion futures (and the
legally-mandated lack thereof), tire rubber, rural Iowa, and wooden
pallets than my six-year-old self thought I ever might.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Super Smash Bros. for the N64.
If that's not romantic enough, I've been skiing since I was close
to the ground and fearless, and I'm great at convincing myself that
I'm good at karaoke. I also make a mean mango chicken.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Hmm. Probably a toss-up between the crossbow and the pet
velociraptor. Coincidentally, it's also the *last* thing many
people notice about me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Escapist, epic, funny, pop, and Asian, respectively.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
• Problems around the house that can be solved using
• The Cheesecake Factory's avocado egg-rolls
• No, seriously, The Cheesecake Factory's avocado egg-rolls
• Clever representations of data (e.g., xkcd and all the things you
can't do in Excel)
• My goal to be inducted in the Traveler's Century Club (upcoming:
#56, the Azores)
• Friends and family (even though this list isn't too serious, I'm
pretty sure my mom would secretly be a bit hurt if I left them off.
It's not like I expect my parents would ever *see* my OKC profile,
but... they'd know)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
that time I decided to check out the profiles of the people who
ranked as my highest % "enemies" on OKC. I found someone with 93
out of 95 shared questions as unacceptable answers one way or the
other. And more than one person who found it unacceptable that I
"generally smile at little kids who cross [my] path."
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have a lingering childhood fear of spiders. And drowning. I don't
know what I'd do if I saw a drowning spider.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're an exceptional person who will challenge me emotionally,
intellectually, and physically. Someone who might go skydiving on a
whim and learn a new language for fun (probably not at the same
time). I'm looking for a girl I can talk to for hours on end,
regardless of the subject. Someone to share my passions, who will
introduce me to theirs, and with whom the perfect evening might
even involve doing nothing at all.
