Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a pretty shy and quiet guy, really. I'm much better at talking
over the internet than I am face-to-face, at least until I'm
comfortable around you. In social situations that involve large
groups, I function much better with people I know and am
I much prefer socialising with one person at a time, or in small
I'm quite interested in physics and linguistics, and, in fact,
anything that involves taking something apart to see how it works.
That includes the people around me (minus the "taking apart" bit!)
I like paying attention to small details and learning each person's
idiosyncrasies. If that seems creepy and off-putting to you, then
I'm afraid we probably won't get along. I also have a life goal of
learning every language that there is. It's not realistic, but it's
Also, an important note which you should really read: both
pansexual and straight are on my profile because panromantic
doesn't seem to be available. Both straight and asexual are on
profile because I'm gray-asexual (grey-hetero, really). Really
though, we can probably talk this out if/when it becomes relevant.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
After finishing high school, I took a year out and went backpacking
for three months in Europe with my then girlfriend. It was an
absolute blast, and I would recommend it (but take more money with
you than we did).
I came back, quit my job, and moved to Sydney with the intention of
studying, majoring with honours in physics, and moving to
Switzerland to work on the LHC project. I've wanted to do that for
as long as I can remember.
But I changed my mind, and I am now doing a Bachelor of Arts at the
University of Sydney, with a focus on Linguistics and French. I'm
also learning Chinese, and teaching myself Italian in my free
For this year, though, I've put that on hold to try and get myself
a little more financially stable - so I'm working in a post office.
I'm contemplating transferring to do my degree online
Long-term, I want to end up in a job that involves travelling,
learning new things about the world and experiencing different
cultures. I hope to work as a translator/interpreter, or anything
that involves speaking different languages and meeting people from
all around the world.
I'm also very much trying to improve my awareness of how to be a
good person. I'm working hard, day by day, to educate myself on all
the different sorts of people that make up this world, myself
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Learning different languages, and linguistics (no, not the same
thing, I'll fight you), playing the guitar, and playing table
tennis. People who have known me a while tell me I'm funny, but my
delivery is very very dry, and I sometimes forget that when making
jokes, which can mean that people don't realise I'm joking - this
is something I'm trying to be conscious of and improve.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I don't really know. I used to have green hair and that would have
been the answer. Now I guess I'm just completely unremarkable, that
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Possibly my two favourite book series are Douglas Adams'
Hitchhikers' Guide to the Galaxy series and Stephen King's Dark
Tower series. I also recently finished reading the first Dune
novel, and really enjoyed it.
I don't know if I have a favourite movie, I like most of them.
Notable high points are The Princess Bride, the Star Wars films,
Watchmen (which I haven't read yet), the entirety of the Marvel
As far as television goes, at the moment I am into Game of Thrones
in a big way. I am also quite a fan of Marvel's Agents of
S.H.I.E.L.D. and I have just started really loving Bob's Burgers. I
don't tend to watch much television, though, really.
My favourite bands and musical artists include the Red Hot Chili
Peppers, Gorillaz, Deltron 3030, and Uyama Hiroto, as well as
Electric Six, Boards of Canada, and Daft Punk, the Arctic Monkeys,
Stromae, Ryuichi Sakamoto, The Whitlams, Zaz, Panic! At The Disco,
Fall Out Boy, Boy and Bear, Ball Park Music, Yves Klein Blue, Angus
and Julia Stone (and Lady of the Sunshine), The White Stripes,
Kanye West...basically, assume I like it - I'll tell you
I love most kinds of food, but I have a particular soft spot at the
moment for all kinds of East Asian and South-East Asian foods.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I don't know about six. I need a purpose, whether I make it for
myself or it's given to me.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The abundance of usernames on this site that end in "-tron" and
"-inator". Did I miss this trend? (Actually, thanks to a lovely
person from Croatia, I now know that this is what OKCupid does when
you choose a name that's already taken. Much nicer than sticking a
bunch of numbers on the end! Thank you, Eulbthecat)
This will seem like a HUGE cop-out, but everything. When I take a
shower, I sometimes zone out and muse about the implications of
special relativity, or quantum mechanics. Sometimes I'll be eating
dinner, and then I'll start trying to figure out whether the
problems we see today are a product of our societal structure, or
inherent to humanity. I have, on at least one occasion, interrupted
coitus because I had an idea and I didn't want to lose it.
I'm *THAT* guy.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Sometimes working, sometimes out for a quiet drink, usually at home
wishing I had something better to do.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I can't think of anything off-hand, I don't consider very many
aspects of my life private, and those that I do are private to the
point that I'm not willing to admit them.
