My self-summary
I take joy in the merely real. I find wonder in the simplest things. I am always curious, always looking to know more, to understand better, and to share my blessings with the world. I don't like keeping good stuff for myself. I certainly don't like acting like I'm more entitled or deserving of good stuff than others.

I question myself a lot. I try to be honest about my feelings, to myself and others. Sometimes, that means I don't suffer in silence, don't pretend I'm tougher than I really am. I don't like pretending.

I like knowing why I do stuff, especially if the answer is ugly. I like knowing why others act the way they do. I like knowing the whys of stuff in general.

I like learning languages. It lets me understand more people, and be understood by them. I like understanding.

I like making stuff. Serious things, that work, and solve problems. That's why I'm an engineer. Also silly things, useless beautiful things, like puns, etymology, metaphors, and writing in general. I love stories; it's like feels and memories and hopes and dremas we all share, taking a life of their own.

I like striving for ideals. I'm a do-gooder, and a dreamer. But I don't like being naive about it. The way to fly, to soar in the sky, is to understand gravity really, really well, and then tricking it into letting you. The way to succeed is to understand all the ways in which one could fail. And to hang on, and not give up.

What I’m doing with my life
I'm finishing a degree in General Engineering, with a view to work something related to renewable energy sources, or maybe biotech, I'm not quite sure yet. I'm not gonna lie; it ain't easy. However, if that's the price I've got to pay to achieve my childhood dreams and get do lots of flashy science and technology, I will pay it gladly.

I am also otherwise trying to improve into a well-rounded, all around excellent guy; it's not enough to be a good scientist/engineer, one also needs people skills, and self-awareness, and a healthy body, and... "There is more to do, than can ever be done; more to see, than can ever be seen..."
I’m really good at
Generally, I'm good at pouring my soul into stuff I like; few things drive me like the possibility of fashioning my dreams into palpable reality, of impressing my mind upon the world, of making it a better, awesomer place to exist in.

As for skills, I'm very good at learning, and at coming up with ideas, especially strange and unusual ones.
The first things people usually notice about me
"You're crazy!" They say it like it's a compliment... Also "You sure love puns" and "you sure love singing".
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Literature: Isaac Asimov. Terry Pratchett's stories are imbued with love for humanity, and hope for its accomplishments. The only irredeemable, expendable bad guys are obvious sociopaths — the rest are just misguided or scared or stupid but never outright evil, and get some chance of redemption. The gods are there to be mocked, not venerated; truly benevolent higher powers (like Death) don't care what people believe. And basic human (dwarvish/trollish/undead/etc.) kindness and decency always, always wins the day in the end. Also, he's funny as hell.

Philosophy: Look, it is possible to like philosophy without being a haughty snob about it. Kant blew my mind, Nietzsche inflamed me, Eliezer Yudkowsky made sense of stuff.

Video Games: Spec. Ops, The Line; which deconstructs what happens when someone wants to be a hero at the expense of doing what's right. Anything by Bio-Ware; very engaging, likeable characters. Portal: lots of fun. Proteus: there are no words. I try to avoid video games as much as I can; I get addicted very easily.

Films: Blue is the Warmest Colour. Explaining why would be a spoiler. PACIFIC RIM: awesomest dumb movie, or dumbest awesome movie?

Anime: FLCL, Eva, Bebop, Attack On Titan, Madoka, Ouran, Psycho-Pass, Gankutsuou (dem fabrics!), Kill La Kill... ultimately, they're all about understanding and accepting oneself and one's world as they are, to throw away one's very self for the sake of that which is truly precious.

Comic books: Alan Moore, Neil Gaiman, Jodorowsky, Métal Hurlant: strange, shocking, mesmerizing. Lanfeust/Troy saga: hilarious.

Manga: Berserk, Vinland Saga, Akumetsu... and then there's Jojo's Bizarre Adventure, which I'm still not sure I *like* but which certainly *fascinates* me...

General: John Green. He is awesome.
The six things I could never do without
As long as the basic needs are met, just find me a library and somebody to love.

Seriously. Only when I'm in a loving relationship, do I function at my full potential. Otherwise I just sort of passably get by.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to become a better person, how grateful I am for what I have, how good the world is, how to make it even better, moral dilemmas...

And whenever I've watched or read something really thrilling, I think a lot about that. Or when I'm writing a story, and ideas keep flowing and flowing. Or when I've met someone awesome.

Also, when I have a lover, I tend to think about them, what I can do to make things better for them, what we'll do together the next time we meet, what we did the last time and what it might have meant...
On a typical Friday night I am
It's been a while since I haven't had a typical Friday. I don't even remember what those were like...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I tend to gravitate towards this kind of relationship

If you don't like being fawned upon, smothered with affection, or regarded as the best thing since sliced bread, start looking for another lover, because I can't help but do those things. Believe me, I tried.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 18–28
  • Near me
  • For new friends, long-term dating
You should message me if
You are an ambitious dreamer, who has faith and hope, in themselves, in humanity, and in the future.

STATUS NOTE: I am currently dating someone really cool. While I focus on that, I won't be available for dating others. Contact me only if you're only looking for friendship.

For those of you who live close to me, I have a request; that we make meeting in person our priority, and keep messaging to the strict minimum necessary to both make sure we're people that we'd actually enjoy meeting. Otherwise, we may run afoul of what I call "Movie Adaptation Danger"; "Harry Potter didn't sound like *that* in my head! Also, weren't his eyes *bottle-green*?"

There is one more thing, one very important rule. "Yes means yes, maybe means maybe, no means no."

If you're coming to Barcelona and I have met you or talked to you at length beforehand, feel free to message me; I'll most probably take some time to show you around, and I might even have a couch to offer (though I'd be thankful if you used couchsurfing.org to ask for it, it helps with the couch cred ;P).

If I haven't already gotten to know you from before, you're still welcome to contact me, but you may find me rather more likely to refuse (but, rest easy, I'm never rude about it).
