My self-summary
WARNING: For some reason, OKCupid apparently says I'm always online. In actuality, I'm only online for a small part of the day. If you've sent me a message and I appear to be blowing you off; I recommend that you muster some confidence and wait patiently, rather than throw a tantrum and delete your profile as others have done. Thank you. ^_^

_____________________________

Page under extensive renovation. Everything you see is old information; take it with a grain of salt. A good number of my questions are out of date as well.

At the core, I'm obsessed with self-cultivation. I'm constantly striving to be the strongest, smartest, kindest person I'm capable of becoming.

I exercise religiously, mostly for the joy of it. I love the satisfaction of finishing a workout completely exhausted, and going to bed knowing I'll wake up just a tiny bit stronger and faster than I had been. If no part of me is sore at all, it makes me feel weak and sickly. Exercise consumes a large amount of my time and has sweeping implications on my lifestyle, so naturally it's a large plus if you share my passion for it.

I'm a strong-casual chess player; I collect chess sets and I love playing with friends over dinner. I default to chess imagery when I need a good metaphor. I'm currently working on writing a chess-playing AI program with the goal of making it strong enough to beat me; it's not quite there yet, but it's good enough to make me sweat. If you're not interested in a relationship, by all means still feel free to shoot me a message to play a round or two if you like. It's not at all necessary for you to share my interest in chess, just as long as you're not put off by it.

I'm always upbeat and optimistic and I can't abide gloominess and lethargy. Unenergetic people are among my biggest turnoffs; you have to be vivacious, and rarely if ever say "I want so-and-so but I don't want to get up and do something about it...". I love making people laugh. I'll always lend an ear to anyone who needs to vent a little, and I'll help out if I can.

I'm completely uninterested in casual sex; I'm demisexual, so I don't experience sexual attraction to anyone until a romantic bond develops first. Before a relationship and well into the beginning of one, I'm as cold as a corpse in midwinter. I mention this in case it's a deal-breaker.

I'm mostly here for the conversation. Good conversations with interesting people, and equally so for the unsavory sorts; sometimes bad conversations can be at least as amusing as decent ones. I don't favor my odds of finding dates; the place seems to be geared more toward the short term than suits my personal needs. Generally speaking, I prefer to make the first move; I don't mind rejection nearly as much as I hate rejecting people. Nevertheless, go ahead and fire off a message if you're so inclined; just at least give the last section on this page a glance beforehand if you do.
What I’m doing with my life
I want to leave the world a little better than I found it, and I want to brighten the lives of everyone around me. I want to challenge myself and continue to grow mentally and physically.

Right now, I'm working as a software developer; I love the job so much, it nearly feels like theft to accept a paycheck for it. I plan to stay where I am for a good few years at least, maybe longer.
I’m really good at
Seeing the bright side.
Making the most of an unfortunate turn of events.
Math.
Chess.
Exercise.
Taekwondo.
Refusing to quit.
Puns.
Riffing terrible movies.
Writing and defeating game-playing AI.
The first things people usually notice about me
Online: My height. I'm told my pictures make me look tall, which is funny because I'm actually a bit short.

Meatspace: I'm quite thin; people often worry whether I'm eating enough, until they see how large my meals tend to be. I also wear all black (right down to the stitching on my boots) about five days a week on average, and mostly black on the rest.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: The Wheel of Time; Game of Thrones; Viva la Repartee; and I, Lucifer. At any given time, I'm usually partway through at least six or seven books. Right now I'm reading A Memory of Light, A Feast for Crows, The Amateur's Mind, Java for Dummies, and Final Fantasy and Philosophy. I'm also a huge sap for yaoi doujinshi, good and bad.

Movies: Kill Bill; Bunraku; Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon; Kung Fu Hustle; Return of the Dragon; The Karate Kid; Drunken Master; basically any martial arts flick, no matter the quality. I also enjoy movies with a lot of wry humor and entendres, Monty Python and the Holy Grail and the Clue movie being stellar examples. I'm a connoisseur of really bad film; I spend most weekend evenings watching D-grade movies with some friends and riffing them MST3K-style. Bonus points for really awful martial arts movies.

Shows: I watch very little TV. I enjoy The Big Bang Theory when I can catch it; otherwise I only ever watch anime, mostly shonen. Full Metal Panic! is far and away my favorite, and I'm working my way through Mobile Suit Gundam Wing.

Music: More than 99% of the music I like comes from video game soundtracks. I particularly love the music from Touhou Project, Final Fantasy, Myst, and Pokémon. I like listening to smooth jazz covers of classic video game pieces when I'm feeling a little stressed. Apart from video game composers, I have very little artist loyalty, the two exceptions being DJtheS and Smooth McGroove (both YouTubers who cover video game music).

Food: I care more about nutritional value than flavor; food is mostly just fuel to me. I like tuna steaks seared rare, peanut butter, red apples, sashimi, protein shakes, grilled vegetables, sharp cheddar cheese, black decaf coffee, and tomato juice. I'm fond of East Asian food, especially Japanese, because it tends to be cooked simply and without most of the ingredients I avoid. I don't consume sugar, wheat, alcohol, or caffeine. I prefer chopsticks to flatware.

Video Games (should totally be included in this section):
Must be challenging. I most enjoy the Touhou series, Resident Evil, Devil May Cry, Myst, and Final Fantasy.
The six things I could never do without
1. Friends and family.
2. A quiet refuge; I'm a hermit by nature.
3. Kettlebells.
4. Whey protein powder.
5. Chessboards and chess sets.
6. Black clothes.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Any puzzle that happens to catch my interest (perfect play in Connect Four, at the moment), plans for the rest of the day or farther ahead, and chess. I will also do mental math problems compulsively whenever numbers catch my attention. And why the heck do some gay guys take almost all of their pictures with women?
On a typical Friday night I am
Generally working out on my own, or else riffing bad martial arts movies. I'm not much for going out unless I'm with friends or a date.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I haven't slept in a bed in ages; I prefer sleeping on solid foam exercise mats, on the floor.

I also detest all hair that isn't on the top of my head, my eyelashes, or my eyebrows. I shave most everything else off.
I’m looking for
  • Guys who like guys
  • Ages 18–23
  • Near me
