Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hey, I'm Alvin. I'm normally very specific with my words but it
seemed like I wanted to write a novel about myself, so grab your
Venti Caramel Macchiato (skim milk and no whip cream), or a Jasmine
Green Tea and enjoy the read! :)
I love laughing and making people laugh. I really enjoy the friends
and family that I have, and I wouldn't trade it for the world. I'm
the kind of person that can go anywhere or live anywhere as long as
I have the people I care about asking for the ride. I'm nowhere
near an adrenaline junkie, but I do have a taste for enjoying what
life has to offer.
I work in the video game industry, so games are a big part of my
life. That's not to say that is all I do, but to be with me you
have to understand that this is not just some childish thing that I
do. It's been my job for over 10+ years and pays the bills, so if
you think that's going to be an issue then feel free to stop now.
Not trying to be rude, but I've had a lot of girls that think that
I should grow up and find a "real" job. It's a billion dollar
industry and I'm in management, so I like to think that it's about
as real as you can get. :)
I'm an ambivert, which means I'm both an introvert and extrovert. I
definitely enjoy going out and having fun with my close friends,
but I also need time to myself to wind down.
I like to THINK I'm a hilarious person, but sometimes it's a very
witty or sarcastic humor that a lot of people don't really get, so
yeah, you'll read below that awkward jokes happen a lot. (If you
got this far then maybe my coffee or tea joke finally hit)
My life is not about what I own but what I do for fun, with people
that I truly care about. I'd like a woman that can take jokes and
give some right back. A relationship where we are equals.
I guess what I'm looking for is a woman very similar to myself,
that can clean up well but also just chill on the couch and binge
watch some Netflix with me. Someone that can hold her own with my
very sarcastic friends and family. A woman that would be down to go
see a sports ball game (whether at a bar or a stadium), a random
trip to Vegas or SF, or a fancy dinner date. If I'm seeing someone
I want them to know that they are special and everyday I feel like
I've stolen a little bit of sunshine and I'm the luckiest man alive
for waking up next to them.
TL;DR I work in games, it's a real job, I love my friends and
family, weird humor, and I want a really cool and down to earth
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
"What an i doing with my life?" Geez mom, get off my back! :p
I'm very impressed that you're still reading.
Honestly, I spend most of my time working. There's always a lot to
do, and you can always be better, so I can spend most days and
nights just sitting at my desk trying to mage processes at work
I've recently gotten into hot yoga, so I spend a couple of nights a
week there, as well as the gym. And I'm trying to run more, but
that's been a struggle.
I love cooking, and would definitely use an excuse to cook more
(hint, hint ladies ;) ).
I also like to travel, so I've been planning more trips for 2015
And finally, any additional time is for my own personal projects to
get my own game company off the ground.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
-Singing (at least I think I am)
-Dancing (at least I think I am)
-Making awkward jokes (I'm REALLY good at this, just watch)
-Bowling (just try me)

Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
-Video or Board Games
-My cellular device

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Life as a whole and the social interactions of people around me.
I'm a people watcher.
Before I got my position in games I really wanted to be a
Psychology teacher, so I'm still constantly trying to understand
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Hanging out at the bars or small get-togethers with friends. Or,
just chilling at home reading, writing, playing games, or working
on ideas for the company I want to start.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!

already picked that up)
