Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hmm... how to succinctly summarize myself: I'm an eccentric
half-Chinese/half-Irish engineer, looking to meet someone new.
For a more in depth explanation: I grew up in a broken home, to
parents of very modest means. I have worked very hard all me life
to better myself personally and financially. This has led me to
some interesting adventures, and I have met some very interesting
It has taken me a long time to understand who I am, and it would
not have been possible without the guidance of some very good
friends. They helped me to get a handle on a lot of anger and
frustration I had bottled up.
I don't resent anything that has happened to me, good or bad,
because it made the person I am today... and I like who I have
I am easy going, adventuresome, and inquisitive
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Trying to live
life to the fullest.
I have found that the best way to improve your lot in life is to
get a good education, so I went back to school for a master's
degree in Systems Engineering (Engineering Management) from the
University of Virginia. Its an accelerated, one year, full time
program, which has consumed most of my time until recently. Now, I
just need to figure out the best way to leverage my new
I'm looking for someone to share in the adventure that is my
life. I believe you should go into a relationship unsure if this
person is going to be your soul mate. The only way to figure it out
is to date them for a while; until you have an idea of who that
person is deep down inside. I can usually figure people out in just
a few dates. In a nut shell, I feel that you have to date in the
short term to meet a long term partner.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm really good at seeing the links between things.
master once said, "If you one skill, you have 1000 skills." In this
he meant that all things are interconnected. If you can see the
connections, you can apply your skills from one field to
I tend to be very adaptable, both personally, and with random
household implements. You could say that I'm a MacGyver wannabe. My
general fields of aptitude are strategic thinking
(tactics/logistics), the hard sciences (physics, biology,
chemistry), mathematics, scuba diving, and martial arts (Tae Kwon
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm very friendly and out-going. I like to laugh, make jokes, and
generally have a good time. Admittedly, I can come off as crass or
arrogent at first glance, though I can be a southern gentleman. The
enviornment will generally dictate my disposition.
It's really hard to say what people notice about me first. I
want to say it is something physical and superficial, but everyone
that I seem to meet claims they get a "strange" or "wierd" vibe off
of me... whatever that means. Perhaps someone could quantify that
for the engineer in me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
A) Favorite Book(s): I enjoy reading anything Sci-Fi/Fantasy
related. I have enjoyed reading Anthem (Ayn Rand), The Art of War
(Sun Tsu), the Red Wall Abby series (Brain Jacques), Starship
Troopers (Robert A. Heinlein), and the Harry Potter series (J.K.
Rowling). Since I spend a lot of time on the road, I have had the
chance to listen to several John Grisham and Don Brown novels on
B) Favorite Movies: Hmmm, not sure which movies. I do have a
soft spot for KungFu flicks, and action movies with a decent plot.
I find all horror movies funny. The worse the effects, the better
the horror movie.
C) Favorite Music: I'm really diverse in which music I enjoy. It
all depends on the mood that I'm in. Generally, I don't like RAP
and R&B, but as with all things, there are exceptions.
At heart, I'm a Parrothead. I love all of Jimmy Buffet's music.
D)Favorite Food: Deep down, I love to eat. Some say it's a
weakness, others just call me a human gabage disposal. In either
case, I will eat most anything you put in front of me. If I have to
choose a particular dish then I'd have to say authentic cantonese
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Air, Water, Food, Family, Friends, Love In all honesty, I have
spent so much of my life without much of anything. This lends
itself to being able to do without many things. I'm a strong
believer in self reliance, and planning for contigencies.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The universe and my place in it... Honestly, I spend my time
thinking a lot of where I am in life and where I'm going. Where do
I want to be? How do I get myself there?
I also spend (way too much time) time thinking about why people do
what they do. What is it that makes a person tick (or tock)? I look
for what motivates people, and why they think what they think.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Most friday nights you can catch me a home, resting from a long
week at work. If there isn't something that need to be fixed (there
always seems to be), you can find me surfing the internet, playing
video games, or watching tv. You might catch me out to dinner with
my friends, lamenting about our work week. It's not uncommon for us
to break down into friendly discussions on politics or religion
Every couple of weeks, I get together with my friends and we
have a Saterday game night.I won't deny it... I'm still into
strategy gaming with my friends. For me, its a unique outlet for
the creative side of me. If there isn't a game night, then you can
usually catch me out hiking, camping, or generally exploring.
Every couple of months, I get all of my friends together, and we
Diving. Sometimes it will be close by (Lake Rawlings), or we'll
go to a more exotic location (Cozumel). It all depends on how much
time we have.
I allocate one weekend per month to an Airsoft game. Usually, I spend about 3
hours training my teammates (friends) and then we spend the rest of
the day playing games to reinforce the lessons.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have freckles... you just have to look for them. If you want to
know more dirty secrets about me, you'll have to meet me in person.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
Are you are interested in dating a half-Chinese/half-Irish engineer
who breaks all of the stereotypes? Honestly, I'm just looking to
meet nice people (in person) to see if we are compatible for dating
or other activities ;-) I figure the first stage of finding that
special someone, is meeting her.
I'm looking for a woman that spar with me about society, economics,
politics and metaphysics. She must also be able to challenge me to
better myself physically. Finally, I'm in search of a woman that
knows what it's like to have nothing, so she can truly appreciate
everything. In a nutshell, I'm looking for a woman that is smart,
fit, humble, and sane.
Also, please let me know if you find misspellings, poor grammar,
and inconsistencies. I don't usually read over my profile. Thanks.
