So the details: first, I'm a big guy. So if you're into more huggable guys, I'm right up your alley. And most people can't tell right off what my race or ethnic background is. People have made guesses all over the map, but I'll let you off the hook: I'm Filipino with some other seasoning stirred in.
I'm a geek. Kind of mild-core, though. I like to surround myself with other friendly geeks and nerds who aren't too far out in the deep end. And date them if I'm lucky. Which is why I'm lurking around here on OkCupid rather than, say, Adam4Adam.
What makes me more conventionally geeky includes my interests in comics, video games, tabletop gaming, anime, Star Trek. I have been going to the San Diego Comic-Con since the 80's, which is pretty much the mecca of all things above.
But I also geek out on artsy-craftsy stuff like sewing, sculpture, design, drawing and writing. And then there's the complete nerd side of me that is into user experience, web development, and trivia.
But I'm also pretty normal. I like to hang out with friends, watch TV, go to movies, play poker, eat at holes-in-the-wall. I like to go out and drink, though I don't get messy. When I am with folks who are crazy enough, I love going to sing karaoke—in a room, but I prefer a stage. And when I'm on my own, I like to explore the nooks and crannies of San Francisco on my scooter. And I always have my fingers dipped into some community-based project or another.
I live a somewhat bohemian life for someone my age-- I live on my own without anyone depending on me and am involved more with doing creative and community-oriented things than, say, sweating about investments and social standing. This may not sound grown-up, but don't confuse my interests and lifestyle as a lack of maturity.
Historically, I've dated primarily Asian men, but I don't have a rule or anything. I mean, I am totally into gingers, but that doesn't really fit my history. I just try to date folks that I'm attracted to and get along with.
I am big, geeky, and generally pleasant.
