Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hey there! So...things you should know about me...
I'm a person who loves learning and exploring and finding out new
things about the world. I love meeting new people, and after moving
to a new town, I really need to do that more. Doing pretty much any
activity is always more fun with someone to share the experience
with you. I think that's a pretty good guiding principle for life
in general, and it's probably what's brought me here to OKCupid.
I'm looking for someone to share life's experiences with that I can
engage with on an equal level.
I guess I'm at the stage in my life where I'd like to focus on
inner peace and contentment and engaging with the world and other
people more fully and authentically instead of letting my delusions
and biases get in the way. I'm working more on becoming a more
peaceful and compassionate person, which I guess brings me back to
what I'm doing here. I think any good romantic relationship starts
out as a really good friendship and I'm looking to meet friends
first of all, and hopefully a romantic relationship will blossom
out of that.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I recently moved to St. Louis for a new job. This will be my first
job in the IT field and I'm really excited to begin learning all
about what that career sector is all about. In my spare time I'm
teaching myself programming, working on my creative writing skills,
and every other night or so I spend some time at the gym either on
the treadmill or the elliptical.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Being funny, I guess. I love watching and reading comedy and
working it into my writing. I'd like to write for a website like
cracked.com. That's the kind of writing I excel at. A funny skit or
essay never fails to lift my spirits. I love entertaining and
making people laugh. That's usually my role in any group that I'm
I also know how to turn a good phrase on paper and in person. To
me, writing and public speaking comes naturally. It's always been
that way. I see myself as a born wordsmith. I know my way around
The first things people usually notice about me

People always say I talk a lot and very excitedly. Fair
Physically, I guess a lot of people say that I look a lot younger
than I really am, and maybe also a bit geeky because of the
glasses. I'm trying to wear contacts more. I probably will wear
contacts on a date, just so you know. Also, people always ask me if
I'm of Asian heritage. I've gotten that question since high school.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
My favorite kinds of fiction are probably somewhere in the
speculative catagory--sci-fi, fantasy, horror. Basically if it's
got weird stuff in it, it's a pretty good bet that I'd like it. I
tend to read a lot of graphic novels too, anything from
Transmetropolitan to Neil Gaiman's Sandman graphic novels.
As for movies, my tastes really run far and wide. I'll watch pretty
much anything once if it's critically acclaimed or if enough
friends recommend it.
Music: I'm a huge, HUGE EDM fan, especially trance. My top 5
favorite DJs are ATB, Armin van Buuren, Tiesto, Paul van Dyk, and
I love live music. It doesn't matter what kind of genre, it
automatically sounds amazing live.
I have WAY too many favorite shows to list, but my top 5 would
probably be The Wire, Breaking Bad, Six Feet Under, Twin Peaks, and
Doctor Who. I also love comedies--any kind, really.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. my laptop
2. my Galaxy S4 (I'm a bit of a smartphone geek, comes with the
job, I suppose)
3. my friends and family
4. my car ('cause I need it to take me to work and stuff)
5. my bookshelves (with the books in them, obviously)
6. a good night's sleep, every night. I'm a night owl and in
college I pulled all-nighters, all the time, either partying or
writing papers. It doesn't work out. Sleep is awesome.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The world is so weird and incomprehensible and amazing. I'd like to
take in as much of it as I can someday.
"There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, than are
dreamt of in your philosophy." The world is so awesome, and I could
spend my whole life learning about it.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
...probably going out to the bar or club. Any night I go I try to
enjoy myself, and get the most out of a fun night. Friday nights
are my night to shine.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm probably the biggest Britney Spears fan that you will ever find
in an adult straight man. And I'm not gonna apologize for that!
