Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Let's see how far my inability to write a self-summary gets me
For starters, my name is Alex. I tend to be a quiet and shy person
in initial social interactions. However once I get to know someone,
I find it easier (usually) to open up and be myself.
I'm currently attending community college with a major in computer
science. I'm not exactly sure what I want to do with said degree,
most likely at least continue to a bachelor's. After that, my
career path is largely up in the air. As of late, however, I have
been reconsidering a career in healthcare (when I first started
college, I was going for biology and pre-med). Overall I'm not
quite sure what I want to do.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Currently, my life revolves around a part-time time job working for
a legal service based in Minneapolis and going to school. Aside
from that, I'm doing my best to piece together a semblance of a
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Listening; I am a very good listener, or at least that's what I've
Problem solving; I usually like solving problems, whether it's
algebra or my friends' personal issues.
Programming; I would like to think that I'm a good programmer (if I
didn't, then I probably chose the wrong major).
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
It's probably the fact that I'm quiet and timid. Though, it'd
probably be my tendency to be (sometimes overly) sarcastic, once
I've opened up (or while at work).
In the end, I can't really say what people usually notice first
about me; I've never actually been told. Maybe it's my facial hair?
Or maybe my seemingly inability to smile in photos?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Unfortunately, I don't really have the time to sit down and
actually read an entire book. I've tried starting several, but I
never get the chance to get very far. By the time I do get the
chance, it's been to long and I'd just have to start from the
It's hard to say which movies I call my favorites, since lately my
taste in movies as been really picky. I do tend to favor action
films revolving around sci-fi.
When it comes to shows, Netflix has been pretty much my only access
(which can be somewhat limiting). Like with movies, I tend to be
picky. Though not quite as much. Of the shows I've seen some of my
favorites include: Firefly, Heroes, The Walking Dead, Supernatural,
Two and a Half Men, Big Bang Theory, and House.
Overall, I have a general taste in music. Usually I like to listen
to fast-paced songs, but I tend to listen to almost anything aside
from most country, opera, and distasteful rap. I don't think I've
actually come up with a decision on what my favorite band is
I'm not a very picky eater, but when I have the choice I like to go
with almost anything Italian (I love pasta!). Sandwiches or salads
are a frequent alternative.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Coffee based drinks
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Space travel, women, programming, and how little control I seem to
have over my future.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Usually I end up going out with friends. If not, then I tend to sit
at home and wish that I had a better social life.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Sometimes I make really weird noises when I'm alone.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You want to make a new friend or hook up. While I may potentially
take a while to warm up, bear with me and just give me a chance. If
you want to know more about me, feel free to ask away; I'm mostly
an open book and wont bite (unless you like that sort of thing ;)
