Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
My name is Adam and I work on computers. I enjoy archery and
fencing. I like astronomy and astrophotography. My apartment is
full of telescopes. I turn normal cars into faster cars and I love
a good drive. I don't watch much TV or movies... in fact I don't
even own a TV. The computer fills in though for the important
I'm pretty much completely nocturnal, evening person, night owl...
whatever you want to call it... Mornings are not my happy time. On
the other hand, I have seemingly endless energy from midnight to 5
AM and am most creative at 2 in the "morning".
I *do* like... well dressed girls, girls who take the time to have
a nice appearance, but not so far that it interferes with their
lives. I *don't like*... "odd" piercings and tattoos, smoking, or
girls obsessed with brand names and status symbols. I also am a
tiny bit hypocritical in the sense that I have some traditional
habits and like that in a girl, but in other ways I'm very modern.
I want someone I can care for without all the silly outdated
expectations... but I'll still always hold the door for you and
give you my coat when it is cold. I find "prim and proper" girls to
be irresistible. I hope that doesn't offend.
It might appear I'm a negative person, but that isn't true at all.
I just figured that if you aren't scared off by now, then we will
probably get along just fine. I tend to excel in music, both pure
and applied sciences, and mathematics. I'm not very good with
foreign languages, but I try all the same.
My idea of the perfect date is one with all the bells and whistles.
That includes suit and dress, valet parking, reservations... all
the good stuff. Which brings me to my next point. I really like
getting dressed up. Suit and tie.
I'd rather have a few real friends than a thousand acquaintances
and it shows. The few friends I do have are basically family to me
and we are always getting into nerdy mischief.
I'm actually a little picky when it comes to romance and dating.
However, when I find someone I really like, I spoil them rotten. I
cannot stop thinking of fun things to do with them and they get
treated like a princess.
Having children is *not* a priority of mine. I haven't ruled the
possibility out in the far future but right now I just have no
interest in it.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I went to Indiana State University for physics. Then I went to
Purdue. Now I found myself in Shanghai without a clue. The world is
a crazy place. Who knows where I'll be tomorrow.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Just about everything.
Naah, I'm just kidding. I'm a nerd through and through. Anything
academic and I can do it blindfolded. I'm not too shabby in the
musical department. I like to build computers and tune cars.
I'm a fairly good cook, and I'm not talking about in a "I can read
a cookbook" way, either. Like can *actually* cook. I guess that's
to be expected, though. I used to work part-time at a restaurant
where I prepare sushi.
Well, what I'm *not* good at...
I'm totally socially awkward and cannot make friends to save my
life. I live alone and spend most of my time in front of the
computer, learning crap. I scare girls away because I have no
"game", that is, I am just honest with however I feel. Apparently,
girls don't like that very much.
My fashion sense is a little whack too.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
People think I'm really weird when they first meet me. I'm pretty
shy, clumsy, and tend to say weird things. I might seem like my
thoughts are random but, believe me, everything is connected from
I forget people don't know what I'm talking about when I talk about
obscure things in science, engineering, or technology. This
probably contributes to the "saying weird random things"
I look very young for my age. I figure that might be a good thing
down the road. Perhaps when I'm 50 I'll look 40? One can only
I have blue eyes, I'm about average height, I'm not fat (noteworthy
in today's society)... I kind of have a large butt.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books... wow too many to count! I suppose schoolbooks don't count,
but I always get a kick out of reading the DSM-IV-R.
Movies... I swing both ways on this one... I love an action movie
with tons of stuff blowing up, but... at the same time I love
comedies and romances, even better when they are blended
together... I loved 10 Things I Hate About You. Basicly a modern
day version of Shakespere's "The Taming of The Shrew"
Music... Everything from classical to alt. rock, and everything in
between. Not really rap, though... Just not feeling it.
Foods... I can cook up a storm so I've got myself covered here. As
I have already mentioned, I used to be a sushi chef and that kind
of got the ball rolling. I've only advanced from there. I've been
told time and time again I should be a chef, but I don't think I'd
enjoy it as a profession.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Food... specificly, good tasting food... uum, the
Internet/computer, for real. I get the shakes if i go a whole day
without checking my e-mail. Newegg.com - I needs my fix of 'puter
parts. My tool collection - Believe it or not, I'm a real gearhead
and am always tinkering with something. Uum, let's see. Music -
there's a song for every person and every situation. Finally, my
telescope collection. I guess it is partially related to my major,
but I still do it just for the fun of it.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I also have a very scientific/mechanically inclined brain. I tend
to look at every man-made contraption on Earth and think of ways to
make it better. My father thinks I'm insane because of it. If it
isn't perfect, it is flawed in my eyes. I guess that's the engineer
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Cooking! Or perhaps taking pictures of the stars... who knows.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I don't like being being called "Baby" or "Babe". I'm a guy, not a
Corsets, evening gowns, and frilly girly clothes turn me on like a
light bulb. The more extravagant and impractical, the better.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You are nice. I like nice girls. I want the most sweet,
kind-hearted person who's ever walked the planet. A lot of guys go
for the "bad girl" persona, but I like the total opposite.
You like to eat! I love to cook and I'll do my best to fill your
belly with yum-yums.
You're not badly out of shape. Sounds shallow but there are health
concerns there too...
You are smart. I really like smart girls... Brains are hot!
If you're still on the fence, check out my food album. See if that
earns me any brownie points.
