My self-summary
UPDATE : Hi guys! Thanks for the visit. :) Check out my music on soundcloud: https://soundcloud.com/stephanie-chen-music

(Profile is not up to date and is under construction.)

UPDATE: I'm back!

FINAL UPDATE: I'm no longer actively looking to meet up on this site. I've moved out of the city, so the time I spend in NY has significantly decreased. However, if you are insistent, I can probably fit you in for coffee during the day, but no guarantees. ;)

It's been a full year, since I first started using OKCupid, and it's been nothing short of a full-blown, intense relationship rollercoaster ride for me. Looking back, I've been on 77 dates in the past year, met 34 different people, spoken to over hundreds, and have still kept in contact with a handful of wonderful people. In the relationship-sense, some may say I have failed, because I didn't end up finding "Mr. Right", however, my OKC experience has been just as memorable, nonetheless. I've created some truly meaningful relationships with the people I've met and overall, I've really had a great run.

I know I'll miss you guys dearly... Best wishes to you all. I hope the rest of you have just as much fun as I've had.

Always remember: Enjoy it while it lasts. :)

Out,
-S

UPDATE: Finally learned how the star rating system works. Mhm... I like it. Rate me! :)

Won't stop until I get there.

What I’m doing with my life
I'm currently completing my undergrad at NYU studying Economics and Chemistry, in hopes of finding the missing link between the social and hard sciences.

I started using online dating just shy of a year ago after a string of long-term relationships that didn't seem to work out. Like most, at first, I was extremely skeptical of the idea of finding dates through a dating service. But, one of my close friends convinced me to sign-up and only after a few weeks in, online dating became one of my greatest assets for broadening my social circle. I went on some pretty wonderful dates, met a lot of great people in the city, and really got the chance to get to know myself better. Online dating sites don’t just give you the traditional experience of dating; they help you learn what really works and what doesn’t. I don’t think I’ll ever get over how magical a scientifically calculated algorithm can be, and for that, I find this to be truly amazing.

I'm looking to meet new people and form different types of relationships. I want to take things slow and just see where things go. I think this helps to take the pressure off of everyone, which makes everything just a little more enjoyable. :) Message me if you want to hang out, grab coffee, drinks, or food, or, just to get to know me a little better. I’m usually up for anything, so let me know and I'll get back to you as soon as I can. :)
I’m really good at
If you have a serious question for me, you're going to have to meet me to find out :) I suggest we talk - preferably over coffee, tea, or beer - when we meet. Locals. You're solution to this madness. I'm usually around midtown, so you know what to do...

However, for those of you who are hesistant to the whole meeting up thing, for starters, apparently, I'm fantastic at answering mass amounts of OKC questions. Ever seen anyone else with such a high number of answered questions? It took me the first month to get that done - Disclaimer: Not all answers may be accurate now. Life's always changing.

Regardless, if you do have a higher total for answered questions on this site or come close to the amount I have - first of all, congrats - and secondly, you should seriously message me. We'd probably find a lot of things in common: i.e. work-ethics related issues. At least that's my psych analysis on that.
The first things people usually notice about me
Looks, height, legs, and bro-ness. But, color me biased - someone's got to sell me for me, right?

Nevertheless, you are free to come to the same conclusions on your own time. ;)

Literature: Rebecca, Speak, Stargirl, Flowers for Algernon, Catcher in the Rye, The House of the Scorpions, Hunger Games, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, etc...

Lately, I've been listening to a lot of alternative on Pandora and Spotify. I'm in an indie rock band at the moment - and, I play violin. Yeah, you think about that. ;) Better making music than listening to it, right?

Food: desserts, chocolates, cupcakes, pasta, bread, butter, pizza, and milk

However, I've been on more of a health fringe lately since a friend from this site MMarc0 introduced me to some savory, home cooked, Italian tastiness. :)
The six things I could never do without
the 5 basic needs, the ability to feel emotions, meaningful conversations, healthy and unhealthy obsessions, time, and second chances.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I spend a lot of time thinking about...hm...I don't know haha. I don't usually think about the same thing for an extremely long time. It's usually a bunch of things for a short and concentrated period of time. Well, I guess since it's relevant to the question at hand, I did spend a fair amount of time thinking about how to answer this question - via redirection and evasiveness.

But, sometimes I do wonder if OKC plots some sort of probability distribution for all the stats they collect on how many visitors each person gets on this site and if I'm representative of an obvious outlier point or not.

ANS: OKTrends
On a typical Friday night I am
meeting up with fellow OKC members, going out with friends, at a bar, wandering the streets of NYC, relaxing at home watching my latest TV series obsession, staying in and studying up, or back in Jersey desperate for some unnerving rest.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Some of the most hilarious things said to me come in the form of OKC messages. I archive all of them into my inbox until I'm forced to clean it out to receive more new messages. Saddest day of my life;(

I use Locals very often.

I fall in love easily.

I have binge streaks: id est, those 40-piece McNuggets for only $8.99 are looking mighty delicious for tonight...

I eat my candy the way sick Americans pop pills.

Those 5 things all happen to be true. I'm not going to tease you. ;)

Oh, and I look nothing like live Barbie. (That should definitely be a plus.)
I’m looking for
  • Guys who like girls
  • Ages 24–30
  • Located anywhere
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
you want to meet up, hang out, or grab coffee, drinks, or food.

Cheers to you all and hope those in search of love find it.
