My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a Christian tech nerd. I'm into math, computers, board games and video games, science fiction and fantasy, and the culture that comes with them.

I prefer interactive timesinks like games, internet and hanging out to noninteractive ones like TV, movies and music. I'm happy listening to music, but I prefer to sing it.

I'm honest to a fault, but some of the other virtues need work.
I like to cook for company, but not particularly for myself, so I eat out pretty often. My new roommate cooks all the time, though, so this summer I've been eating a lot of his cooking instead.

I'm not afraid of the Sun. I like to hike, bike, and play casual sports. I'm not overweight, but I'm not especially athletic either.

I like to build stuff, both on computers and in real life.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm living in San Francisco, doing tech research. This is my first "real" job, so I have no idea if I'll like it long-term (it's been about 2 years), but it's pretty fun for now.

I don't really have a long-term plan. Eventually I'd like to do something more... world-changing, or helpful to society, or something? But so far, the pattern has always been that one door closes, another opens, God provides.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Math, up to a certain level of abstraction. I majored in it, and I've participated in various math competitions.

Computer science. It turns out that this is a lot like math. It turns out that software engineering is not quite the same thing as computer science, so I'm still working on that.

Games. I'm pretty competitive. Word games, bridge, chess, Euro board games, some video games. Also table tennis.

Puzzles. I'm no expert, but I enjoy mystery hunting and the like. I'm not particularly interested in Sudoku, though... it's almost purely mechanical, and feels like the kind of puzzle you should write a computer program to solve (which I've done, of course) instead of solving yourself.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm super analytical.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: The Bible, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, Discworld, Good Omens, His Dark Materials, A Song of Ice and Fire.

Movies: Dr Horrible's Sing-Along Blog, Lord of the Rings, The Princess Bride, Harry Potter (haven't seen them all), Star Trek (some of them), Star Wars (IV-VI), The Matrix (the first one), The King's Speech.

TV: Firefly, Star Trek, Avatar: The Last Airbender. I don't watch much TV. At my old place, the TV was incapable of receiving broadcast (no digital tuner) and was used almost exclusively for Super Smash Brothers (each of the versions, at different times). I expect that I'd enjoy other SF series like Dr. Who, Babylon 5, Stargate, Battlestar Galactica etc, but I haven't watched them much or at all.

Comics: xkcd, Girl Genius, Questionable Content, Erfworld, Order of the Stick, Foxtrot.

Food: Pretty much everything. Southeast Asian, Chinese, sushi, Indian, South American, Italian, Mediterranean, Cajun, sandwiches, burritos, spinach salads with lots of stuff in them, crêpes, coffee. I don't have much of a sweet tooth, and often eat more dinner rather than having dessert.

Games aren't on here, but for video games Starcraft, Civilization, Braid, Portal. For board/card/paper/social games: bridge, Eclipse, Dominion, Agricola, Settlers of Catan, Le Havre, 7 Wonders, Scotland Yard, Race for the Galaxy, Galaxy Trucker, Bughouse (chess), Robo Rally, table tennis, Dixit, telephone pictionary.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
The Internet. I should probably cut down.

The Bible. I don't always understand it, and I have doubts, but I still come back to it. Other books are cool too.

Sleep. When I'm short of sleep, I'm miserable and useless.

Friends. Pretty much goes without saying.

Games. I should probably cut down on those, too.

Pencil and paper. Because I like to puzzle things out.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Math, computers, God, strategy, how I would explain modern life if I were marooned in the middle ages.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Hanging out with friends, playing Starcraft or hacking at some piece of code. I don't really do the bar thing, and I can't dance worth beans (but I'm willing to learn).
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
In my middle school years, I was a giant asshole and a liar. I like to think I've gotten over that.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
Any of these are true:
... you want to hang out with and/or date a nerdy Christian guy.
... you want to play some Agricola.
... you know about cab #1729 (this reference is way more obscure than I was going for, by the way, but I'm not A-List so I can't change it).
... you want to solve or design puzzles.
