Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I think before I speak. This has a pleasant side-effect of people
believing me to be smarter than I am. This also means that I talk
less than most.
I value people's time and respect all ways in which they might
choose to spend it. Thus, I am extremely punctual. I expect others
to respect my time as well.
I try to see things without societal bias. My social views are very
liberal. I behave rather conservatively despite this.
I enjoy net sports. I am closest to competent at badminton, but
volleyball and tennis (and the table-top variety) are also
I enjoy gaming. This includes your euro-style board games (Settlers
is probably the most common example of one of these), Magic (the
trading card game), as well as computer games, mostly in the RPG
and MOBA genres. I prefer an element of randomness and hidden
information in what I play.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Immersing myself in select games and media.
Helping architect the data storage layer of an enterprise social
webapp meant for millions of users (which is not there yet.)
Saving up money so that mortgage loan that I'll need in order to
buy a home in the bay area hurts as little as possible.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Not much, but I'm better than average at:
-Making myself sound cold and unfun
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I like fantasy fiction. I tend to not remember the authors and
titles of what I read, though, as I will almost always only read a
title and author at most once. Some authors that I enjoy include
Terry Pratchett and Tad Williams. I also read manga and what
translated Japanese light-novels I can get my hands on.
The last time I watched a movie, I was an undergrad.
I pick out a few anime shows to watch each season. Some favorites
are Bakemonogatari and Steins;Gate.
I enjoy listening to ナノ, supercell, and Syrufit, and listen to a
lot of japanese pop in general.
I'm probably the most lukewarm towards Chinese food in general,
though there are certain dishes that are quite delicious.
Otherwise, unless it's too exotic, I'll tend to like it.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
-Basic necessities to support life
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Recently, how integral the bait and switch is to living as a part
of society. When we engage in new social interactions, such as in a
job interview or in a date, we are told to put forth our best
faces, almost always to the point where we stretch the truth. If we
do not, we are at a disadvantage since everybody else does. Once
this bait has been taken, we can let more and more of our less than
perfect selves show; they will often be accepted because we are
Also recently, I think about what kinds of issues we all keep
hidden from others and the reasons that we do so. There are
probably things that I hide that others already know, but they in
turn hide that knowledge from me, out of consideration.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
FNM, reading, gaming, watching a show.
