My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
tldr: Curious, contemplative, and cool under pressure. "Hey listen, bad wolf - there are four lights!"

Dwayne's never been to Japan or tried sky diving (arg, cancelled due to bad weather twice!). You? Anyone artsy/geeky who can introduce me to things I've not seen before is welcome company.

personality traits:
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Software developer on DirectX graphics rendering (particularly text/typography). I'd like to explore more nearby (seen a good chunk of the Puget Sound by now, but there's plenty left) and further (seen Mexico, Canada, Spain, and Italy, but not Australia, Japan, or Germany). Other pointless minor goals include: doing a handstand.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Drawing (pencil, pen, conté crayon, chalk), origami
Playing piano (started age 9, but rusty now - my Roland must feel neglected).
• Figuring out how things work, especially spatial puzzles.
• Handwriting (others are always surprised when they see my signature on a restaurant receipt).
• Being oblivious to signs that she is attracted to me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
• warmth - sun/hot chocolate on a cold day
• interesting people - show me new things
• little creations I've made - past drawings/programs
• some form of static media - my books and magazines
• some form of interactive media - games and shows
• internet - how else are you supposed to answer your burning random questions such as the world record for the longest hair or biggest collection of Daleks?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
"The more swiss cheese you have, the more holes you have. The more holes you have, the less swiss cheese you have. Therefore, the more swiss cheese you have, the less swiss cheese you have."

Whether it would just be easier to flirt with the cute girl at Subway, the crumpet shop, or the one who sat next to me on the bus than to invest all the effort of reading hundreds or profiles.

Why is it that people who are "out-of-phase" in all those scifi episodes don't fall through the floor? (among other unsettled plot holes) Why google advertises liposuction to me of all people when there are plenty of Inuits in need of good ice cubes? Add to that dozens of topics that pique my interest over time.

Motivations behind other's actions, and my own.

Je ne sais quoi... and why dating websites fail to capture it thus far. Maybe I need to create my own to solve this matching problem >_<... How do you know someone is worth the effort of getting to know them, even if just as a friend? What return on investment you can expect? Wouldn't it be awesome if you could somehow just know someone immediately without all the 'getting to know' them time?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Sometimes a movie, sometimes visiting a friend/vice versa to play either video or board games, sometimes just staying indoors catching up on a queue of YouTube/TED talk videos.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
"Nothing, for it's the big vewy scewy internet" ... Oi, show you have a sense of levity, and tell the world something completely completely harmless, such as...

• Hates hypodermic needles. Circus clowns are pretty scary too. Though, the number 13 is quite lucky.
• Was red-haired as infant until it darkened. Still sinister as ever though (left-handed).
• M&M's are eaten as follows: brown, orange, red, yellow, green, blue.
• My oldest known ancestor is Jonathan Andrew Tierce, born ~1745 in Ireland, and my initials are that of an American President (Yes, the dead one. No, the other dead one).
• Never too old for cartoons (series or movies).
• Don't play with them anymore, but I still have every one of my LEGO's.
• I danċe to the lively music when no one else is looking (care to sing to Haiducii Dragostea din tei with me? It's seriously happier than any song should be).
• I do not have IED, LFT, Münchausen syndrome, OCPD, Self-Abasement, or Asperger's Syndrome, and I definitely don't have hippopotomonstrosesquipedaliophobia, or else it would have taken all my courage just to finish typing that last word!
• I won't waste my time or yours with lies that you'd find out anyway - plus the truth is a heck of a lot easier to remember!
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over. want to say thanks but no thanks - rejection is like water off a duck's back to me. If you do want to meet though, I'll be a bit surprised: Please do say howdy if you are sciencey/musical/mathy/little weird/artsy whether you'd make a good romantic match or not, because I've met four cool friends including one of my best via this site.

Otherwise, bon voyage, and enjoy some links...
• Answer the OKC questions in ways that improve your match percentages:
• Why online dating leaves neither side satisfied (more is less):
• brief LEGO LoTR word-play humor
• some beautiful choir music
• being everything at once
• a commercial with inspiring music that makes you want to travel
• have I mentioned that I love Faun's music?
• and my website, devoted to random musings and old retro video game utilities ( which will turn away most of you, but perhaps appeal to the precious few.
• Dog goes woof, cat goes meow, bird goes tweet, mouse goes squeak...
