Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a geeky, stereotypical nice guy.
I spend way too much time on my computer, either dinking around
online or playing games.
I really wish I could go to Comic-Con... the one in Chicago is
cool, but I don't think it's quite the same.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm working on finding a career post-college. I might end up going
to grad school, but at this point I'm really not sure if it's worth
investing the time and money, even if I think it'd be fun.
Really want to move out West right now, preferably Washington or
Oregon, but I'm not too picky. I crave mountains.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Oh. People seem to think I look like Harry Potter.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I've got way too many favorite books and movies, but if I had to
narrow it down, I might say Dune, The Dresden Files, the Vorkosigan
Saga, and American Gods for books, and Death at a Funeral (Brit
version), Star Wars, Stranger Than Fiction, Cloud Atlas, and Grand
Budapest Hotel for movies. The Studio Ghibli movies are pretty
As far as shows go, Doctor Who, Archer, Arrested Development, Lost,
Fringe, and The Venture Brothers. Oh, and Game of Thrones. Been
digging some Black Sails and various quirky British murder
My favorite music is pretty haphazard; mostly I find stuff through
soundtracks. I like a lot of pretty movie scores, like Michael
Giacchino and Alexandre Desplat. I like David Bowie and the Beatles
quite a bit, and I also enjoy Feist, Zooey Deschanel, and a
smattering of more recent big artists like Adele.
I really like any kind of food that involves meat, pasta, or
cheese-- basically, comfort food. I don't think I could handle
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My laptop, the library, the internet, my mp3 player, my family, and
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How things work. Not just physically, and usually not mechanically.
Biologically to a certain extent-- but the origin of social
behaviors can be really fascinating. It's interesting to think
about, for instance, the cultural evolutionary factors at work that
could have influenced the development of a certain custom.
And as long as we're on the subject, if you blankly refuse to
believe in evolution on religious grounds, we will have issues.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Hanging out with my significant other (the position is vacant), or
relaxing by either reading, watching something, or messing around
on the computer. Occasionally playing Magic with friends from work.
Staying up way too late no matter what.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I own a lightsaber. It's pretty awesome.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're geeky, and would like to chat about Marvel stuff, Star Wars,
Pokemon, Studio Ghibli, Game of Thrones, Neil Gaiman, or Doctor
Who. If you are going/wish you were going to comic-con. Or your
favorite thing about Chicago is the museums. Or if you're just a
nice person and want to say hi.
