Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
First, since you'll read this before anything else, ignore my last
online thing. It's usually wrong. I get phone notifications right
I'm fiercely loyal once I've gotten to know you well as a friend.
I'm accepting of a lot, and let things go really easy. I like to
have discussions about stuff. I try to be informed on a lot of
things, but there's always more to learn. Talking to people about
it instead of just reading also helps me really understand other
points of view. I'm usually laid back and relaxed, but when I put
my passion behind something I put my whole self into it.
I'm a bit of an introvert, but don’t mistake that for anti-social.
I'm not against going out, but I definitely don't enjoy the "party
scene." I just like some relaxing fun. Watching TV or movies,
playing video games, and even reading a good book. I'm really
sarcastic, witty, intelligent, very opinionated and just a little
odd (but aren't we all.)
In spite of my general preference for logic and reasoning, I'm a
romantic at heart. I love corny and cheesy. You'd be surprised how
often the lame things can really convey what you mean, and it says
something about how you feel for another person that you're willing
to come off a bit silly to prove something. Ultimately, I'm looking
for love, but I'm a realist about it. There needs to be a spark
with someone, but the flame builds up over time. So just give me a
chance. Talk to me on more than a superficial level, and let's see
if something's there. If there is, then you never know where it'll
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work as a software engineer downtown. I really love my job, and
it's definitely always interesting and full of challenging.
Outside that I'm still fairly new to Chicago. I've only been here
about a year, so I'm still discovering fun places to go and stuff
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Singing! Not just your typical singing either. I love singing in
choirs/classical singing as well, and I've spent quite a lot of
time doing it.
I'm also really good with electronics. Not just the programming
stuff I do for my job, but taking them apart and putting them back
together or fixing them. I love tinkering with hardware, but I keep
the left over bits and pieces tucked in a closet or something.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
-The Name of the Wind, The Wheel of Time, The Inher- fantasy...
I'm also a huge fan of Sir Arthur Cocan Doyle (Sherlock Holmes,
anyone?), I love Lewis Carol's Wonderland books, some Mississippi
fun with Huck and Tom, Kidnapped, hell, my Kindle is full of books
old enough to have been written before copyright.
Books are really important to me. You should just know that up
-Lucky Number Slevin, Muppet Treasure Island, Don't be a Menace to
South Central While Drinking your Juice in the Hood, Disney movies,
Star Wars (which probably seems kinda obvious if you've read the
rest of the profile).
-Star Trek (All but Enterprise, because it sucked), House, Stargate
SG-1 before the last 3 seasons, Stargate Atlantis, before the last
10 episodes, Cold Case, The Twilight Zone, Law & Order except
Criminal Intent because that big guy is awkward.
-A little bit of everything, only no -new- country (aka pop with a
twang), dubstep(though some good dubstep exists), or rap.
-Steak, other awesome meats.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
The fan I use to sleep.
Chairs.... No really.. Imagine a world where there aren't any
I know it would make it seven, but you could also include the
friends/family that everyone else says. But honestly, if you didn't
see friends and family as important, you probably wouldn't be on
here looking for people to talk to.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The future, friends/family, life, school, whether or not a higher
power exists, crazy fantasies in which I impress people in
outlandish scenarios with a skill I deem awesome, but is actually
unimpressive (see the XKCD comic on knowing regular expressions (I
actually have that as a shirt!)).. all kinds of things.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Playing video games, reading, hanging out with some friends or by
myself watching something.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Oh boy, this'll be fun.
I'm affected when something emotional is properly conveyed in books
and movies like a character dying, or that horribly sad scene in
The Fox and the Hound where the old lady takes Todd to a game
preserve and that song plays. Oh yeah, I love Disney movies. I've
deep-throated a pickle for a dollar. I'm a counter-tenor, which
means that I can sing like a girl. I scream like one too, when
poked in the side unaware. I'm having trouble thinking of more. Shy
of getting into explicit sexual details, or things I just see as
more mundane, I don't have anything else. I'm just an incredibly
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You think I'm interesting and wanna talk. I'm interested in some
kind of relationship, so don't expect some kinda one night stand or
I should note that I don't have an issue with the idea of
long-distance relationships. Someone I like is someone I like. At
least not at first. If it becomes a real relationship we'd have to
meet sometime, and we couldn't stay apart forever though.
