Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
You'll find me laughing often. My friends know me to be whimsical,
thoughtful and they know I'd do anything for them.
The favorite people in my life radiate joy and a lightness of
spirit. I find myself smiling hours after spending time with them,
and I hope that I have that effect on both those I love and those I
know for brief moments.
I can’t think of a higher compliment than “you make me smile long
after you’re gone.”
And I'm charming; really, I am.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
So, I'm yet another engineer working and living in Silicon Valley,
and as it turns out, there's quite a few of us. I am, however, the
most dateable - trust me, i checked.
You live in SF, and you are apprehensive about dating some guy in
South Bay? Fear not! I am happy to come up to the city as often as
possible, and I am very, very seriously considering moving up when
my lease is up.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I don't know if I'm actually good at it, but I like to think that
I'm good at telling a story.
What could be more important?
Also, it makes me fun at parties (I think).
Also, making pancakes.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I've been described as "surprisingly athletic". Which I think means
that I move ever so marginally better than one would think I would
by looking at me.
So, I suppose I don't look particularly athletic when you first
Which kind of sucks.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Bravery and Bad Veins
So, I decided that I should read A Suitable Boy. I'm Indian and
I've never read any Vikram Seth, and he's "important". Good lord
this thing is huge. I literally cannot hold it over my face when
I'm reading in bed without fear of breaking said face when I fall
asleep. So, it went to the side, and then I started Midnight's
Children, which (unlike A Suitable Boy) has a digital version, so
there's no fear of breaking my face when I drop my tablet on it.
But then I started reading Game of Thrones, because one cannot live
solely on important literature. Um, I've put everything else aside,
and have become completely obsessed. I read all the books in an
absurdly short amount of time, and now I'm flipping back through
them to see if I can pick up on any supporting evidence for my
theories. Do you have theories about any of the large questions or
about what's about to happen? (I worded this vaguely to avoid
spoilers) We can discuss them until you cry.
The Godfather, The Usual Suspects, The Conversation, "Tinker,
Taylor, Soldier, Spy", Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade
I'd like to take this moment to point out how insanely racist
Temple of Doom was, and as a 7 year old Indian child living in Ohio
when that came out, I'd like to say to Mr. Spielberg and Mr. Lucas,
I hate you.
That being said, I have excellent taste. Clearly.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Joy. It doesn't matter how good things are if you can't embrace the
moment with joy.
Kindness. It's incredibly easy to be kind, it makes a difference in
your well being as well as those you encounter, so just be that
Humor. Make me laugh, make me smile, and I'm yours.
Soccer - I love this game.
Good stories. It doesn't matter who has the most interesting things
happen, what matters is who can tell the most interesting stories
about the most interesting things.
Adventure. I enjoy wandering about. I accept that not all
excursions are going to be life-changing, but a few of them will
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
So, you know that icon on mobile apps that's 3 horizontal lines, it
usually brings up a menu or settings? What's that called? I've been
calling them "hot dogs" at work lately, and I think I can make it
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
blah blah blah... no typical Friday night... I'm so interesting
doing such fascinating things... blah blah blah.
In all honesty, my typical Friday night involves good friends,
amazing food and wine. We're often chatting around a grill or a
table or a fire-pit. Those are the best Friday nights.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I don't separate my laundry - haven't for years. I'm pretty sure
the whole "separate by colors" thing is guidance developed by Big
Detergent to make us do more laundry.
I have not been to Machu Picchu, which, judging from the photos
here, puts me in the minority. So, we probably won't be able to
exchange notes from when you went to Machu Picchu. I have nothing
against Machu Picchu, and I would love to visit there someday. I
just hope you're okay with going back one more time (with me).

You're kind to absolutely everyone.
You love easily and you hate rarely.
The word hate rankles you.

You make me smile long after you're gone. (not dead gone, and not
