Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm the type of guy that values the intangible things like good
relationships, good friends, and good conversation. Oh, and good
food! Can't forget that. I strive for a nice balance in life
because it's just too short to do otherwise
As far as personality goes, I'm pretty easygoing, and pretty
talkative with people I feel comfortable around. I place a high
value on trust and being kind/considerate. Not necessarily in the
"save the world" kind of way, but more in the "live each day as
best you can" kind of way. I tend to be fairly honest myself (I
hope), though ironically you only have my word for that right now.
This doesn't mean I'm blunt though. I will try to tell you honest
things in as nice and friendly a way as possible. How you say
something really does make a difference.
People say I'm a great guy, but you can find out for yourself =). I
like to think that I'm the classic "nice guy".. but perhaps I
shouldn't admit that since a lot of girls may find that boring! But
yes - that's as close as I'll ever get to saying something
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm currently a scientist (biology/biotech), but pivoting towards
an entirely different field (law). So I guess I'm reinventing
myself in a sense.
However, since work will never never beat play (unless I'm an ice
cream taste-tester), I try to have a lot of other interests,
whether it be trying a new restaurant/coffee shop, thumbing through
a book of classic art, or baking.
The baking thing I only started recently, and it's part of my
idealistic hope that I can become a pastry chef later in life. I
figure I need the 20 years of experience =). That is one
non-negotiable thing with me -- life is too short for bad dessert!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'd like to think that I'm good at holding a conversation, making
people laugh, and above all, being a good friend. My friends do say
I'm pretty good at listening and being available to bounce
ideas/emotions off of.
And I try to always be considerate to wait staff. They have a hard
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Umm.. I'm kind of tall for an Asian guy? Actually the first thing
people think about me is that I'm smart.. which I don't think is
true. Besides, I'd rather be known as an overall good person, not
just for one facet of my personality.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
"The Great Gatsby". Definitely - my favorite novel. I've been
reading classics recently because I figure.. they're classics for a
reason and must be good. I've also been told I'm one of the rare
guys who has read (and enjoys) Jane Austen's novels.
I'm flexible here. I have a nostalgic love for classic Disney
movies. Anything that's based on a true story, or a good book, or
has some sort of inspiring tale will likely draw me in.
Pretty flexible here as well. I'll be OK with most things, as long
as it has a good tune.
Gotta love food! I like lots of different foods, but sometimes I do
feel like sticking with "safe" dishes I know are good. I'm not a
fan of spicy dishes, just because I never ate them (but of course,
I don't mind if you do!)
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1.) Good friends are a must.
2.) Sunshine (it's a native Californian thing).
3.) Interesting people/thoughts
4.) Witty conversation
5.) Anything else that makes life worth living =)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Anything that strikes my curiosity. Don't let the scientist bit
fool you -- I'm just as happy learning about art or
I can also think about random things, like why I prefer broccoli
over cauliflower (my conclusion: I think the white color of
cauliflower just puts me off.. veggies aren't supposed to be white!
They're supposed to be a nice leafy green).
(I apologize if you loved cauliflower and that comment just ruined
it for you.)
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
.. just hanging out with friends, doing whatever. As long as I'm
surrounded by great people, it doesn't really matter. I'm not picky
- I don't *have* to be doing anything on Fridays or Saturdays. I
think this goes along with the fact that I'm easily amused.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I don't ever want to grow up. Being an adult is over-rated.. Hmm,
maybe that's not a really private thing, but I don't mean
child-like in an immature way. A child-like sense of joy and wonder
is pretty important. I tend to think that people who lose this
become too cynical and lose a little bit of their soul.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
.. you're a kind person who enjoys a good conversation. Or possibly
if you think I'm interesting/fascinating =)
