Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
The name's Ryan.
I'd have to sum myself up as an internet-loving, game-playing
adventure fiend! Travelling and seeing new sights excite me to the
nth degree, but when I'm in my home town I love nothing more than
to snuggle up in my room and computer alone or with friends online.
I have a fascination with the world on both scientific and social
levels, leading me to frequently geek out over new techs or
advances in various fields. Computer games and traditional
role-playing games are my sedentary hobbies, rock climbing and
cycling when I feel like being active. I have liberal leanings as
my main principals are equality, choice and non-censorship. The
list of types of humour I like is not so much exhaustive as it is
exhausting, I like sarcasm, irony, puns (the worse the better),
dark humour, pop culture references, slapstick, deadpan... I think
you get the picture.
In summary: total geek, travel, sarcasm and gaming.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Just started university at Anglia Ruskin in Cambridge. Studying
computer game technology.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I like to think I have intelligent conversation to offer. I'm
supportive of my friends and like to facilitate a good time. Making
people laugh brings me immense pleasure, but often I just make
myself laugh instead.
I can also snap my fingers quite quickly and rhythmically.
So you might say I'm good with my fingers... sorry, that was lewd.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I can be a bit quiet when meeting someone in person for the first
time. I tend to hold back and assess people (mainly trying to find
their sense of humour) before gradually easing into
Some people tell me I dress smartly, apparently tucking in a shirt
is all it requires these days.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I don't read an awful lot due to a shortish attention span, but
I've been getting into audiobooks lately (since I can do other
things while listening to them). The Song of Ice and Fire series
has been my main following as of late, but I finished it recently
so now I need something new.
Disney and/or Pixar films are unconditionally loved, Mulan and
Aladdin are my favourites.
My absolute favourite films are Cloud Atlas and Forrest Gump, after
that it mostly falls under genres such as fantasy(LOTRs, The Hobbit
ect), sci-fi and biographical, or my favourite directors such as
Quentin Tarantino and Duncan Jones.
The usual mix of geek and mainstream. Dexter, Firefly, Game of
Thrones, Breaking Bad, How I met your Mother, Doctor Who (although
I've grown slightly distant from most of the recent series),
Community, Adventure Time, Whose Line is it Anyway?, The I.T Crowd,
Blackadder, Archer, Garth Marenghi's Dark Place. Avatar: The last
Airbender. If you've seen You're the Worst please tell me, I need
more people in my life that have seen the genius of that show. I've
also gotten into anime in the last year, subs no dubs!
My main tastes are vaguely alternative/electronica. Cloud Control
are my favourite artists at the moment. I also like classic 80s and
70s music. My Frank Sinatra playlist is extensive.
I'm fairly adventurous with what I eat, often trying new things and
enjoying the flavours of a variety of cultures. Meat is my bread
and a juicy, rare steak is what I crave wherever I go.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
In no particular order:
The internet. My various computers and devices. Quiet time. A few
good friends and meat.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Mathematics. Philosophy. Science. Fantasy. Sci-Fi. That interesting
thing I heard about the other day...
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
At home, and you can bet it'll involve being on the internet.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm on a dating website, don't tell anyone ;)
