My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
First of all, yeah, my profile is long. But you don't have to read it all. Or at all. Just scroll through the sections that might be relevant to you. Or don't.

I'm Italian, from a city in the south east called Taranto.
I lived 4 and a half years in UK, then 3 in Spain. Now I moved to Hong Kong in September 2014. I'm hoping to live here at least 3-4 years.

MY EXPERIENCE WITH MEETING PEOPLE FROM THE INTERNET
(this is a whole extra section that I wrote up but you can just skip it)

I'm an expat, have been an expat for many years in different countries now, so meeting people from the web is my main way of making new friends. This is normal for me.

My experience in meeting people for friendship-or-potentially-more has been mixed, so far. I did meet a lot of people in person. Not only through okcupid, but through other websites as well like couchsurfing or facebook.

Most of the times however, when I meet someone, we only meet once and then never meet again. This is not because the first meeting goes terribly, quite the contrary, I think that pretty much always when I meet someone, we have a fairly good time. And, no, we don't have sex. All we do is meet up for lunch or dinner and talk. I'm very talkative and easygoing so even when the other person is shy or doesn't talk much, we can still have some sort of conversation going. No awkward silences.

But most of the people I met, we've only met once, or in some rare cases, two-three times. I came to realise this is because people simply can't be bothered to get to know someone and actually meet them often enough to not completely lose contact with each other (say, 2-4 times a month?).

People would simply prioritize the long time friends they already have, which, I guess, is fair enough. In today's busy world, where everyone is always working or studying and never has time for anything, people would rather meet up with their old time friends than "invest" their time with a random person from the internet.

I met some people in person and it looked like we had a good time and we could at least be friends. But ask them if they are free to meet again at any time, and they will always be busy.

I don't know what kind of situation girls expect out of an okcupid meeting.

There's the kind of guy that tries to buy your interest in them by being forcibly and overly sweet and romantic right away and trying to make you feel like a princess. Like you're such a special girl and they might actually want to have a serious relationship with you. But really, they don't even know you.
I can understand why some girls easily fall for that. Aren't we all just waiting for someone to finally recognise how special and unique we truly are? It's a nice feeling, I understand. You just shouldn't trust when someone acts like that without actually having spent enough time with you, learning more about you.

Then there's the guy that does the complete opposite and sends you photos of his dick on whatsapp with the caption "U like?". I don't know what's the success rate of that.

I'm neither of these two types of guys.
Whenever I meet someone new, I never act like I'm prospecting a potential relationship or anything, but neither I am on a mission to have sex with as many girls as possible.
I just meet you, talk to you, tell you about my life, thoughts, feelings... and ask about yours. There isn't anything I try to accomplish, I just see what happens. Most of the times, nothing seems to happen. Rarely, there is a mutual attraction and in that case things do happen, but in a natural way.

Another reason why it's so hard to actually see someone more than once is that people simply "can't be bothered". A lot of the girls who join okcupid come here for sheer boredom, they install the app on their phone to check it out after a friend told them about it and they get flooded with messages in a few days, hardly reply to any, then likely disable or delete their accounts after a while. Most of the people here are not really looking for anything or anyone in particular, they are just bored and curious to see what happens here.

I don't know. Either way, I usually prefer to skip the text chat and just have a conversation face to face, usually over some food and see what happens.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I've been working as a freelance online translator for a while now. When I was in UK I worked for 4 years in the videogame industry as a certification language game tester and a team lead.

When I was in Barcelona, I was creating and organising various free real-life games for my friends, mostly outdoors, in city parks or abandoned sites. The games consisted of a variety of tasks, depending on the game: you had to explore the environment, find items, hunt your prey, escape or hide from your pursuer, solve puzzles and enigmas, cooperate with your teammates or deduce who's the bad guy.

Following my passion for creating real-life game, here in Hong Kong I have been trying to either join a room escape company, or even create a new one, for a new type of game that wouldn't be a typical room escape game.

By the way, if you are interested in room escape games, feel free to join me in one of the weekly events I organise on this facebook group: www.facebook.com/groups/304105893108147. We go play a different room escape game every week, and people who come play with me have a huge discount (currently we have almost 50% off at Mr. X).
(btw, some people have mistaken this part: I don't work with any room escape company yet, it's not my job nor I get paid to find people to go play!)
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Things I might be really good at:
- Making lots of questions (ok, that's not something you are "good" at). Making questions is my way of understanding things. If I ask you a lot of things, it means I'm interested in figuring you out.
- Seeing things logically and rationally rather than impulsively and over-emotionally.
- Getting the it's/its, you're/your, they're/their/there etc. right despite English not being my first language.
- Making arancini (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arancini).
- Understanding what I'm feeling (emotion-wise) and why.
- Considering others in what they might prefer to do.
- Cutting my own hair.
- Googling the shit out of things.
- Not wasting my money.
- Muff diving.
- Organising things of life into filterable Excel lists.

Things I might not be very good at:
- Having regular eating and sleeping schedules (it's 4:10 AM as I type this).
- Being funny for the sake of being perceived as funny, rather than being funny as it naturally happens, within context.
- Laughing about things/jokes that really have no real logic behind it and don't make sense but are supposedly hilarious to others.
- Acknowledging supposed authority or merit.
- A lot more things I can't think of right now.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Probably that I don't sound or look Italian.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Music: I like different kinds of music, mostly anything that combines fast verses and harsh lyrics and chourses over hard beats. Favorites would be something like Linkin Park, Hollywood Undead, Deuce, Korn, Issues, Dangerkids, Scare Don't Fear, Eminem, Fort Minor, Splitbreed, Tyler the Creator, Young Buck, brokeNCYDE, Lie or Liar, System of a Down, Limp Bizkit, G-Unit, Attila, Marilyn Manson and some more.
So I guess my main genres are rap, rap-rock/metal/core and nu metal, and recently digging the hell out of metalcore and a bit of crunckcore and deathcore. I also enjoy electronic music too, especially dubstep, vocal trance, trap, goa-psy trance, progressive psy, and even ligher music like pop, r'n'b and soul sometimes, depending on what the song is about.
I don't really listen to Italian music, although I've been listening to a specific Italian album for almost a decade now (Mr. Simpatia by Fabri Fibra, catch it here on my channel:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NTflPf8pufs).

Movies: I watch quite a lots of movies, but mostly I go through periods in which I watch a lot and periods in which I watch nothing at all, focusing on gaming instead. I like movies where you have to think and try to figure out the plot as things are happening, movies with twists, those that maybe require a second watching to completely understand the story; also movies with an innovative or unusual story/idea behind them. I like the "found footage" genre. Some movies I really liked are: The Last Exorcism, Triangle, Grave Encounters, The Descent, Fight Club, Super, Ken Park, Oldboy, Lovely Molly, The Tall Man, The Butterfly Effect, The Mist, The Matrix, Chronicle, Cloverfield, REC, District 9, Kick Ass, Borat, Saw, The Devil's Double and many more.
I ended up on IMDb just to keep track of what I've watched: http://www.imdb.com/list/ls052715857

Shows: I don't watch tv so I don't really watch any show, if I ever want to watch one I download it. I know it's an old tv series now, but I was really into The X-Files at the time. I have watch and enjoyed some anime series, things like Ergo Proxy, Neon Genesis Evangelion, Ghost in the Shell and GANTZ. Salad Fingers was an animated web series I really liked.
The fact that I don't watch any tv series is something that really locks me out of a lot of conversations when I am with friends, or meeting new people, since they're always all about things like Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad, Walking Dead, Big Bang Theory. And I never watched any of any of that, but I still ended up learning a lot about them just because people are constantly talking about them.

Books: I don't read books. I do read a lot though, online. Articles about what's new in the world, or articles about specific topics which are relevant to my interests; I use Wikipedia and other Wikis in general quite a lot, rarely I contributed to some Wiki article. I read on a want-to-know-more basis, but I don't have a book in my hands so that people can think how smart I must be. As far as reading for entertainment, I (used to) read some mangas online, like Gantz or Maka-Maka, or some webcomics like Oglaf. Novels don't entertain me, so I don't read them. You're a book lover, okay, shoot me XD

Food: I eat a lot of pizza, pasta, and cold milk with muesli. I also love hummus, but I try not to eat it as much. I like to believe I still have a quite varied diet though. Recently I started eating a lot more fruit than I used to. Still lacking on the vegetables area though!

And it doesn't ask for it but I do play a lot of videogames, usually anything that is story-driven or has a good degree of creativity involved in it, or just any game that is fun and engaging to play. I don't play MMOs or competitive-based games. I love survival-horror games like Resident Evil, Silent Hill, Cry of Fear, Alan Wake, No More Room in Hell; puzzle games like Limbo or Braid or mindfuck games like The Path. Some other games I really enjoyed are Project Eden, Obscure, Alone in the Dark, Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines, Shadow of the Colossus, Outlast, DreadOut, Minecraft, Robocraft, Lucius, Sleeping Dogs, Deus Ex - Human Revolution, Oblivion, Skyrim, Switchball, the series of Assassin's Creed, Hitman, Prototype, Prince of Persia, Splinter Cell, Tomb Raider, Dead Rising... I also (used to) play The Sims 3. Also always been interested in playing any game co-op, but I almost gave up on the idea after seeing how hard it is for people to do that seriously.

Another activity I enjoy doing when possible is the exploration of abandoned buildings/sites. I used to do this alone. You can see some of my explorations here: http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLD52CD41B5E4860AB
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Unless you want me to list banal things like "food" or "internet", I have been living most of my life without certain things that one is not supposed to be able to do without, at least not for such long times, so I don't really have six things that I could never do without, since I'm already without those things.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I spend a lot of time thinking and analyzing my thoughts, feelings, desires and behaviour, as well as those of other people.
I end up doing most of my serious thinking as I go to bed, sometimes talking to myself out loud, as having to construct an understandable sentence with spoken words helps me shape a mass of abstract thoughts into a more concrete and understandable idea.
I also spend a lot of time: wondering and researching about what's the proper word that accurately describes what I want to define; how to correctly pronounce words I thought I knew how to pronounce; other stuff I am now removing from this section.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Let's go with a generic night, not just a friday night: either out (or in) with friends, or at home alone reading wiki articles, playing games, watching scary movies, eating pizza/pasta/cold milk with muesli, and trying not to sing too out loud to the music in my earphones since it's like 3AM and my voice is probably the only thing that can be heard in the entire block.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm very open and can talk about my private things without many problems, just I don't want to write things here, for everybody. Let's talk and I'll tell you everything as it comes by.

But perhaps something that it would be fair to mention would be that, despite what it might initially seem, I don't have a very sunny personality. With this I don't mean to say that I'm not outgoing or friendly, quite the contrary. I'm always interested in meeting new people and doing new or fun things. What I mean to say is that I'm just not as easily cheerful as the average person usually is, as it seems harder for me to experience joy than all the people I see around me. I don't let this affect my interaction with others though, as I always do my best at having a positive and vibrant mood whenever I am with someone. I may carry my gloom inside, but I'm not the kind of person that would sit in a corner and whine about life without doing something about it, I am in fact constantly trying to improve my situation despite my insecurities and sometimes lack of energy to face the future. My moving from country to country (Italy, UK, Spain, and now HK) is a result of this inner restlessness.
I find affinity to people who share similar traits with me but even more I'm attracted to the people who are the complete opposite of me, those who always have a genuine smile on their face that can penetrate you and reach you in all of its strength.
