My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
TL;DR:
I'm a tall-ish skinny nerdy INTJ extroverted-introvert dude that lives and works in downtown Minneapolis. I enjoy art, graphic design, video game design, technology, science, vegetarian cooking, organization, biking, living minimally, and playing piano. I don't drink, smoke, do any kinds of drugs, or follow any sort of religion. In a girl, I'm looking for someone who lives in the Minneapolis-St.Paul area, and who also shares similar interests. I value toughness, responsiveness, awareness, intelligence, and independence.

Here's the long version:

I am a calm and collected, nerdy, designery, extroverted-introvert. An INTJ and somewhat of a loner, too. My extroverted side makes me quite talkative to everyone, even strangers. The introverted side makes me prefer the company of only one or a couple friends at a time. Drinking, smoking, and drugs are all things I am not a part of. I'm fine being around people who drink a little, but I can not be around smokers due to allergies and the fact that it's just gross. I do not follow any religion or faith. I'm using this website to seek out a like-minded girl interested in hanging out in Minneapolis during the week doing nerdy gamery/movie stuff, attending events, walks, bicycling, or whatever activities we both enjoy.

Phyiscally, I'm 5'10" and skinny. Nutrition and getting out riding or walking several times a week are important to me. I enjoy cooking and experimenting with random foods.

I'm a clean and minimal person. I don't like having lots of 'things', so I actively donate or get rid of things that I don't need. I'm the opposite of a horder. Also, contrary to the stereotypical nerdy guy...I shower often. That may sound funny in writing, but it's one of those things you don't actively think about until you meet someone who smells really bad.

My life is more stable that it's ever been before. I live alone, independently and work full time downtown. I live a simple and peaceful life, so if you're someone who has a chaotic one, I would probably be a nice break for you. I no longer own a car, and instead bike everywhere (even in the winter) and using public transit. I love cool, breezy times of year when it rains and storms.

Art, technology, and design (web/graphic/game) are three critically important aspects of my life. They are what I do professionally and in my spare time. I also do Twitch broadcasting for fun. I now own a 3d printer and have been playing with that a lot too.

I am an opinionated and talkative person on just about any subject. However, unlike most highly opinionated people, I have a good gauge of appropriateness and tact to avoid coming off as a jerk (to put it nicely). I really dislike pretentiousness in a person, so I do whatever I can to not come off that way.

I'm a very independent person. I don't have a consistent group of people that I hang out with, and I spend the majority of my free time alone. I make my own paths in life, and experience it from the outside. I only allow myself to become a part of the lives of people who mean a lot to me. It's a quality over quantity thing. This paragraph will scare away the majority of the people reading this, but I'm ok with that. It's one of those sentiments that either speaks to you, or it doesn't.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.

I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
organization, electronics, design, self sufficiency
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm very animated when I speak, and look pissed off when not speaking. It's the eyebrows, man. It's very rare that I'm actually angry at anything.

Also, that I tend to sneeze around dust, cats, and cigarettes. Sucks. It is not a deal-breaker if you own a cat. I've lived with cat allergies my whole life, and have learned to not let it bother me too much.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
video games:
Half-Life 1 Half-life 2 Left 4 Dead Team Fortress 2 Mirror's Edge Portal 2 Minecraft Flower Journey Harvest Moon King Arthur's Gold Little Big Planet Animal Crossing: Wild World Animal Crossing: New Leaf Natural Selection 2 Heavy Rain SimCity Monaco Grand Theft Auto V and many more. I'm an amateur game developer, so try to be diverse in what I play.

movies:
Inception Children of Men The Truman Show Moon Amélie Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind Star Wars and many more...
I have a huge list of movies that I haven't seen and would really enjoy watching with someone *hint*. I have a hard time watching movies by myself, so my list is getting quite lengthy. I also live within walking distance of a movie theater *hint x2*.

music:
I have a wide range of musical interests, but my love lies in electronic music. I prefer instrumental, downtempo composition. I was a radio DJ for 2 years, with an ultra chilled late night show where I played soft, relaxing electronica.

A few random artists I enjoy: Yann Tiersen, Tycho, The Album Leaf, Helios, Pogo, Trash80, Daft Punk, Gui Borotto, Nobuo Uematsu.

I relate deeply to the music that I listen to, even though there are typically no words to be interpreted. Here are some examples of myself in musical form. It's a way of getting to know me in a pretty abstract way...

I've been on this site for about 3 years. I guess part of being mostly introverted is that things like friends and significant others take a long time to figure out.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
- You value art, design, technology, or video games to some extent. These are critically important parts of my life, and we'd probably eventually run out of things to talk about if we didn't have them in common.

- You live IN or very close to Minneapolis or St. Paul. I donated my car a few years ago, and rely on my bike and public transit to get around. It's hard to keep a relationship together if it's a big hassle to see one another.

- You don't smoke/vape, or are quitting. I have allergies, and smoking is just disgusting in its own right. Alcohol is ok as long as it isn't one of your biggest thrills in life.

- You enjoy being outside and are open to things like biking and long walks. I'm not big into fitness, but I adore being out in nature, especially on a bike. Even if you don't own a bike, I have a bike share subscription you could use with me.

- You're responsive. I'm a very talkative person, and would like someone else to talk my head off with. Being a native English speaker, or highly proficient in it is important too.

- You're cool with the fact that I'm somewhat of a loner, or are also a loner yourself. It sounds ironic for a loner to be seeking a companion, doesn't it? By loner, I mean that I prefer only having a couple significant people in my life at one time. I'm not a 'big group of friends' kind of guy.

- Appearance wise, all that matters to me is that you aren't big into things like makeup and perfume, or heavy amounts of body-mods. Piercings are cool, but huge ear gauges and septum piercings are hard for me to look at. I've found myself attracted to all different heights and weights before, so I'm kind of up in the air on body preference. I don't care what your skin or hair color is. Everyone is entitled to their own opinions on attraction, and this is mine.

Ok! Ugh! Enough bullet points!

I respond to all messages, unless it's just 'hey whats up' or some kind of copy-pasta, or if I spot an obvious conflict between us. I'm usually pretty good at sensing if I'll get along with someone.

I look forward to talking to whatever strange girl actually relates to me!

NOTE: I'd like to take a minute to help my fellow nerdy guys by giving out some advice to the people who may be interested in finding them.

It's no mystery that there are a lot of creepy ill-intentioned dudes that prowl around these types of sites, making things significantly more difficult for everyone. If the only type of messages you're getting are "hy butiful hw r u" from 1% matches, then it probably means you should take some time to help the right guy find you. As dumb as it sounds, things as simple as non-anonymously viewing the profile of a guy you're interested and 'liking' it means A LOT on a dating site. We're so accustomed to not receiving responses to our ice breaking attempts, that even the slightest hint that you WANT a message from a guy makes a huge difference. Of course, there's always the option of simply being the one to message first, too. Be ready to potentially face the kind of rejection we face on a regular basis though.

Thanks for taking time to read this. Good luck in finding love!
