Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am a traveler, a cook, a gamer, a gentleman and a recreational
athlete who recently moved to Seattle.
I grew up in England (no accent, sorry), traveled through Europe,
and I have been working on seeing as much of the US as I can. I
would love to see Japan, Australia, and Egypt, as well as many
I will try to cook anything at least once. My favorite kinds of
food to cook are Thai and Sushi, but I can usually whip up
something for any occasion.
I play just about any kind of game you can think of. I have played
Table-top games like Dungeons and Dragons, I occasionally play card
games like Magic:The Gathering, and I play board games and video
I was raised to believe that chivalry is only as dead as you
believe it is. I hold the door open for others, I offer to pay for
dinner or activities (friends or otherwise makes no difference), I
offer my coat (even if it means I am freezing).
I try to stay as active as possible, mostly through walking around
the Seattle area while listening to audiobooks or podcasts. I love
a good game of frisbee or soccer, or any other sport for that
matter (I played hockey in school and have been known to play rugby
and dodgeball in the past).
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work as a systems admin and that takes up a good deal of my time.
Free time usually goes to activities with friends, walking around
town or just staying home and trying to clear my head.
I hope to move up to move up my field, and have been taking
computer certifications to such an end.
Bars and clubs are not typically on my list of places to be, but I
have been known to be dragged to them to keep a friend company or
such, so that leaves a bit more of my nights free.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Putting a smile on the faces of those I care about.
Listening to others and helping them with their problems.
Taking apart electronics and (mostly) putting them back together.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Physically? I have been told my whole life that I have giant doe
eyes. I also look very young (facial hair helps this).
Personality-wise? I have been told I have a very vivid presence,
that I am usually at or near the center of attention.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books - Anything. I have read just about every
Sci-fi or fantasy series you can come up with, but I am always
looking for suggestions. My favorite books are... Brandon
Sanderson's Mistborn series, Terry Pratchett's Discworld series,
Vonnegut's Cat's Cradle, Diana Wynne Jones' Chrestomanci Series and
the Romance of the Three Kingdoms.
Movies - I like movies that make you think, or
ones that allow you to turn your brain completely off. I range from
"What the bleep?!" to Spaceballs and everything in between. I also
know every word to Aladdin. My favorite movie is probably
Shows - I do not watch much TV. I have not had
cable in years, and pretty much rely on Netflix and Hulu to keep up
with the shows I actually care about. When I do watch shows, I seem
to prefer the ones that get cancelled quickly (Jericho, The Cape,
Firefly, etc) though I am enjoying Game of Thrones quite a bit at
Music - Most of my time with headphones in my ears
is taken up with audiobooks. When I do listen to music, I prefer
the likes of Journey, Chopin,Billy Joel, Nobuo Uematsu, the Beatles
and Muse. My favorite music to listen to is Meatloaf (blame my
parents, I was raised on it!)
Food - I enjoy just about all foods and will try
anything at least once. Favorites include sushi, fish fingers and
custard, anything with buffalo sauce... the spicier the
Video Games - Video games have been prevalent in
my life for as long as I can remember. I am a card carrying member
of the "Video Games can be Art" camp. My favorite games are:
Old-school RPGs (Final Fantasy 1-X, Chrono Trigger, Suikoden
series, Legend of Zelda, etc...), Modern pseudo-RPGs (Bioshock,
Borderlands, Fallout/Elder Scrolls, etc...), Smash Brothers (any),
and I will take any challenger at Mario Kart or DDR.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1) Internet access - I am a computer geek. I need to be connected
at all times or I deflate.
2) A book - Audio, Ebook or physical, it doesn't matter... just
something I can use to keep my mind active.
3) Friends - I am a social person who lives alone, so I rely on my
friends to stop me from going crazy.
4) My Crockpot - Follows on from 3. I often bring food over to
friend's places and I have yet to find a better method of moving
and reheating food than a good crockpot.
5) My Cat, Cecil - When I am at home alone, my crazy cat Cecil
keeps me company.
6) A nice coat - While I love these 40-50 degree, foggy days out
here. I enjoy them more when wearing a fancy coat with lots of
inside pockets. I grade my coats entirely on the number and quality
of inside pockets.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The rate of technological advance in the past 20 years and what
will be around in my lifetime.
What I would do in different post-apocalyptic scenarios (Nuclear,
zombies, Robot Attack, Alien Invasion, etc...)
How many licks it takes to get to the Tootsie Roll center of a
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Either over at a friend's place watching a movie or playing
Out on an extended walk through the downtown area.
At a coffee house or other public area talking to people and
playing board games.
