I need to update this profile soon....

NEW: I made another profile where I explain some important stuff: the username is FromTheFutureNow. (<--- you can click on it! If the hyperlink doesn't work, here's the direct link: www.okcupid.com/profile/FromTheFutureNow)
If my inbox is full here, you can still message me there.
------------------------------------------

Hi there! My profile is long, I know. But you don't have to read it all, or at all. Just scroll through the sections that might be relevant to you, if you want.

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.

One thing: I came to discover that it's common practice here for the guys to send photos of their dicks as soon as they have a girl's number. I do ask for facebook or whatsapp sometimes, but I don't send photos of my dick (or anybody else's dick! lol), ever.
Also, when meeting in person, I never take anyone to drink alcohol so that they can get tipsy or drunk and be more likely to have sex. I'm not on a mission to get laid. Of course, it's not like it wouldn't be nice to be close to someone, but it has to be someone I actually feel attracted to, otherwise it's kinda pointless.
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 games, 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 experience that goes beyond what the typical room escape game can offer.

(update on this subject: this hasn't worked out so far :( )
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.
- Elaborating on things I want to explain.
- 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.
- Celebrating things and making it look like my life is so cool (all that people do nowadays on facebook).
- 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, Nok from the Future, B.Lay, Ronnie Radke, Marilyn Manson and some more.
So I guess my main genres are rap, rap-rock/metal/core and nu metal, also like 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 more rarely even ligher music like pop, R&B and soul sometimes, depending on what the song is about.

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 really watch any shows or series. Series I enjoyed in the past were The X-Files (ages ago), or some anime series like Ergo Proxy, Neon Genesis Evangelion, Ghost in the Shell and GANTZ. Salad Fingers was an animated web series I really liked.

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 used to eat a lot of pizza, pasta, cold milk with muesli, hummus... but now here in HK my eating habits have changed quite a lot. Mostly because I don't have a proper kitchen to properly cook at home. So I often eat outside now, since it's not too expensive (but it's still expensive to eat outside often!). I'm a bit ashamed to admit that I go quite often to McDonald's. But I still have a varied diet though, and eat plenty of fruit. Not getting fat yet, I even have a bit of abs :P

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
There's a gazillion abandoned places here in HK but I still haven't explored any, incredibly. Maybe I just don't have that much interest in doing this activity alone anymore, but if I had someone to go with who was also interested, then it would be fun.
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.
And finally: how do I get rid of these horrible eye bags/dark circles? If you know of a remedy please let me know, seriously!
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
not sure of what I am doing.
My life here in HK has changed a lot compared to what it was in Barcelona. I used to have a super huge circle of friends, around 40-50 people all part of the same mega group, mostly 18-22 years old guys and girls. We used to always do all sorts of fun activities together.
Now, here in HK, I'll admit that I don't have many friends, so I'm not really going out to party much.

Also, places like LKF are really not my kind of place. People tend to assume that that's actually my natural environment since I'm a westerner, so supposedly I'm supposed to like getting drunk and try to pick up chicks all night. Not really my thing though.

I do like to dance actually and I have very low inhibitions when it comes to dance, even though I don't drink, but clubs in LKF are way too small and overcrowded to even have some room to move. Also, people don't really seem to dance at all, they mostly stand there with their drinks in their hands while barely nodding their heads to the music and checking their phones. And don't even try to have a conversation in a club, you can't hear shit.

I still like to meet up with people for anything, eating, cooking, exploring new places, hiking, watching a movie, or just sitting somewhere and talk.

If I'm alone on a friday night, then I'm either still working on stuff, or home alone reading wiki articles, playing games, watching scary movies, 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 building.
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.
You should message me if

And if you read my entire profile, you should definitely message me!

PS: I always reply to first messages, even if I think we're not compatible at all.
A reply doesn't really cost anything... and I know how shit if feels when people choose to ignore you completely without even giving you the chance to start a conversation.
