My self-summary
Before I say anything else, I should just mention: I'm married to my wife banana_muffin88 and I am not looking for a romantic or sexual relationship. However, I am open to being contacted for any other reason, whether you are looking for a pen-pal, a new friend, a confidant, a partner for a tennis game, somebody to play Tekken with, a Dance Dance Revolution partner... yeah, whatever you can think of. If I don't like your proposal, I'll make sure to let you know, but don't be afraid to ask.

Also, before you read too much into my profile, I haven't updated it in over two years, so... it might no longer be accurate. Same goes for the way I've answered some questions. I'll try to get to working on that, but in the meantime, I apologize for the potential inaccuracy of the way I'm presenting myself below and in answers to questions.

I'm a computer geek. I'm a software developer by profession. Computers have fascinated me ever since I was a little kid, and I knew from the moment I got my own computer (this was at age 9) that I wanted to work with them when I grew up. Usually when I tell people this, they seem awe-struck and tell me I am lucky that I found out what I wanted to be at such a young age.


Although I'm a geek, I'm probably not the stereotypical kind. I don't do Dungeons & Dragons, LAN parties, or any such ordinarily geek-related activities. At least not on a regular basis. Mostly, though, this is due to a social shyness more than not actually desiring to do such activities.

During my free time, I typically surf the Internet, play computer or TV-games, study a topic I'm interested in or want to learn more about or work on a hobby software project I have going.

I'm an extremely liberal person. I tolerate pretty much anything that doesn't harm anyone else than the person doing it. I abhor censorship, and I believe all non-private information should be available at all times for everybody. It is just sad and annoying when you're listening to an "explicit" song on the radio or you watch a program on TV, and half the lyrics are missing, or half the program has been bleeped out.

I'm an agnostic apatheist. I don't think there is a god, but I'm open to the possibility. In either case, it doesn't matter much to me. I'm a socialist at heart, but act more like a capitalist in practice, mostly because I don't have a choice due to the way society works. I'm a secular humanist.

What I’m doing with my life
I already mentioned this, but I'm a software developer by profession. I like to study things, especially in fields I master well, such as computers and languages. One of my goals in life is to learn to speak ten languages (including my native language) fluently before I die. I have two down, and I'm currently working on my third.

I would like to come up with some great idea that would gain me a huge amount of money so I could quit having to work for money. It's probably not going to happen, so until then, I'll just stay at my profession. You know you've got the right job when going to work is something you look forward to most of the time.

I'm rather standard when it comes to the "I'd like a nice house, a loving wife, some kids and a well-paying job that I like" part. Yeah, sounds nice to me. Additionally, I'd just like to travel a lot, meets lots of interesting people, and see the world.

I'd like to accomplish something big someday. I've always told myself that I would like to end up in history. Not really sure how that's going to go down, though...

I’m really good at
Being nice to people whether they deserve it or not. Computers, for sure. Languages, especially using them properly, and writing correctly, and I'm also quite good at deciphering the meaning out of a sentence from a language I hardly know, assuming that I know it a little, and have enough time on my hands. Driving... at least my passengers have claimed so. Letting my mind wander/going off topic and ramble. I'm a good listener.
The first things people usually notice about me

Probably that I'm quite shy when I meet people initially. This is very context-specific, though. If there are lots of people I know around me, I'm quite a bit less shy.

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Concerning books, I haven't read too many, but my favorites among those I have read are the whole Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy series, and The Da Vinci Code.

I haven't seen many movies either. Or, rather, I've seen very few that really caught my attention so much that "Oh, gotta see that one again and again!" I can proudly (or reluctantly...) say that I have not seen any "Lord of the Rings" movies, and I have only seen the first three (You know, the original, old) Star Wars movies.

My taste in music is highly diverse, and what I choose to listen to, or the combination thereof, perchance, is quite original. My most favorite genres (in no particular order) are (symphonic) metal, rock and pop. I am known for trying listening to anything before either embracing it or ditching it. Tendencies are that I dislike hip-hop, country and too noisy/bassy electronic music. However, as they're just tendencies, I've found myself liking some from those genres as well. Even if music means a lot to me, I don't make it much of a topic with friends, unless their tastes match mine closely. If they don't like what I listen to, I just don't play it when they're around.

I love food, but due to my unorthodox (although well founded) convictions concerning the relationship between food and health, there are very few foods in today's society that I can eat. I mostly eat meat, dairy, nuts, fruits and combinations thereof. I completely avoid eating grains, legumes, foods high in sugar and starch and foods that contain "vegetable" oils.
The six things I could never do without
Family, especially the close ones. My mom has already died on me. I don't know what I'm going to do when my dad dies...

Friends! I don't have very many, but I have good ones. I believe in quality over quantity! I'm quite picky about people.

Music.

Intellect present with others. Whether or not I have intellect is not really for me to judge, but based on feedback, I have a good idea about my own standing.

Technology. I love technology. If I had the money, I would own every gadget on the planet, big or small.

Food, and I don't mean for survival's sake!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How I have lots to do, but never find incentive to do it. I'm a procrastinator. I also think a lot about everything and anything. The strangest things can happen to occupy my mind for a long time.
On a typical Friday night I am
Playing games or watching TV with my fiancée.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am a lot more of a child than most people perceive me. I watch cartoons, I listen to music made for kids, I still read comic books, I can easily play with kids, some toys are still able to amuse me, and my humor spectrum includes some of that of a child's.

I do want to make it clear that I'm not a child trapped in an adult, though. I just happen to have a lot of my child still left in me, and I am in fact very content with that. People who completely "grow up" are so incredibly boring. It's like they've lost their spark of life.
I’m looking for
  • Everybody
  • Ages 18–45
  • Located anywhere
  • For new friends
You should message me if
You want to talk to someone who is intelligent, but not supercilious; friendly, but not clingy; compassionate about the people and things he cares for, but not obsessive.

You are intelligent yourself. I like to speak with intellectuals. If you're well read, or people say you have great common sense, that would be you.

You don't mind someone with a very liberal mindset. As such, I fail to see what's wrong with homosexuals; gay marriage; obscure, yet safe sexual practices and fetishes; euthanasia, and so on. If you don't mind either, that's good! If you do, that's not too big a problem either. I accept others to have different opinions than I, and several of my friends disapprove of homosexuality and/or euthanasia and other relatively sensitive topics.

You are NOT a racist. This is the one exception to the "accepting others having different opinions than myself" rule of mine. If you are racist, you can contact your local neo-nazi party instead of me. At the very least you can just skip contacting me. And yes, it is racist to think that interracial marriage is wrong. Also, if you use the word gay as a pejorative, you can just get lost. I hate you people.

You think that although these OKCupid scores and tests are fun, and probably are able to bring the right kind of people together, there's no way to know if you'd really fit them until you've had some words exchanged. That's how I feel anyway.

One more thing. I would like to make you aware that I operate under Crocker's rules. You don't need to know what these are to message me, but it can help you out a lot if you do.
