Hey there, my name's Alan (if you couldn't tell from my username!). I'm a pretty easy-going guy just looking to get to know someone new.
I'm pretty much a geek. I like things like computers and video games and movies. I also enjoy exploring new neighborhoods, finding new restaurants, riding bikes, hiking, and going to the beach.
Personality-wise, I'm pretty open-minded, I have a sarcastic sense of humor, and I value honesty. I'm looking for a guy who doesn't take himself too seriously and isn't afraid to laugh at life. In my ideal guy, I would look for someone who is driven, honest, and down to earth.
Right now, I'm working as a web developer in Chicago, and I'm enjoying every minute of it!

What I’m doing with my life
Finished school in 2011. Since then, I've been working
professionally as a web developer. I recently switched jobs - still
doing web development, but at a new company. I couldn't be happier
with my new job!
Hoping now to get back into dating since I actually have time to do
I’m really good at
eating, sleeping, dry sarcasm, playing video games, making people
laugh, composing music, exaggerating, computer stuff, discovering
awesome song remixes, and creating obviously amazing OkCupid
The first things people usually notice about me
My crazy/weird/sarcastic sense of humor. Life's too short to be
serious all the time!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I like a lot of different movie genres. Action and fantasy movies
are great, such as the Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, and Harry
Potter. I also like superhero movies (loved the Avengers and the
Dark Knight). Horror movies, such as Paranormal Activity and
Insidious are great from time to time. In terms of comedy, there
are so many, but I enjoyed Austin Powers and the first couple Scary
Movie films. I'm also a sucker for a drama or romantic comedy every
once in a while. Silver Linings Playbook was great! Jennifer
Lawrence is amazing, so I'd probably watch anything with her in
My favorite show for a long time was 24. I also like Modern Family,
True Blood, The Walking Dead, Breaking Bad, Family Guy, Futurama,
The Good Wife, and Game of Thrones.
My musical interests vary greatly. Most often, I'm probably
listening to something upbeat. I listen to a lot of dance remixes
(Cahill is amazing!), and, of course, the latest pop music. I also
like rock (especially instrumental rock such as Dream Theater), all
the way to orchestral scores (John Williams, you're my idol).
For food, I enjoy all the things that are terrible for you, like
pizza and pasta and burgers and fries (oh, and Mtn Dew... yeah, I'm
surprised I'm not dead yet too). I do like to cook once in a while
and it usually turns out well. I almost won a bake-off at my last
job! At restaurants, Italian is one of my favorites.
The six things I could never do without
These totally aren't generic and lackluster!
- my laptop (can I also include the Internet in this item?)
- my piano
- pepperoni pizza
- my family (awww!)
- my close friends
- my Ventra card
I spend a lot of time thinking about
movie news (Star Wars Episode VII!!!), how to be an adult, my
friends, my cat
I also spend too much time thinking about ASP.NET and C#
programming. Probably because that's what I do at my job. I'm a
nerd, it's fine.
On a typical Friday night I am
going to the movies, hanging out with friends at a bar or one of
our apartments, or playing video games, etc. Whatever sounds fun
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I sometimes have a hard time finding things in large department
I'm really bad at sports. Like, all of them.
I thoroughly enjoy watching funny cat videos on YouTube.
Okay, that's 3 things. Whatever.
