Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Well, let's start with gamer. Playing games is often my activity of choice, and
I'm good at it. Board games, card games, role-playing games, video games: you name
it, I'll probably enjoy it. I detest head games, however.
I go through a pretty extreme dynamic range. I can be very quiet
and laid back at times, and energetic and animated at others.
Luckily, I'm at the extreme appropriate to where I am and whom I'm
with more often than not.
I am unabashedly a geek, a nerd, and a weirdo. I tend to surround myself with
people who are at least one of the same.
I am free-spirited, strong-willed, and open
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I got tired of waiting for the wind to shift and send me in a
new direction, and decided to stir things up a bit. At the end of
the summer I gave my landlord notice, then started looking for a
new place to live and new employment. About a week later, a good
friend mentioned they had a room opening up in their place. So I
packed up and moved to the Boston area. After about two months of
searching, I've located employment as well, and will be diving back
into Software Engineering after a three year hiatus.
Outside of any time I spend earning the money to support my
lifestyle (and learning new skills), I try to be constantly doing
something I find rewarding in some way. For scheduled stuff, I'm in
a weekly board
game group, a vintage dance group, and a
dance class, which should leave me with two work nights and
plenty of weekend time for more spontaneous activities. I hate it
when I spend time watching TV or wandering around the Internet
because I can't come up with anything better to do; doing so
because I want to is a different matter. I try to learn to
cook new foods
It seems like this section of my profile is getting changed
every month or two right now, so check back. Change is still
definitely in the air around me.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm really good at games, of course. I'm also a very good
programmer and tinkerer. I've recently discovered that I'm
quite good at learning to dance.
I've often been told that I'm a good listener, and experience
has shown that I'm good at getting people to trust me and open up
to me. I like to believe I am worthy of that trust.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'll have to ask some people. Probably my hair (usually in a braid
that reaches mid-back) if they see me from the back. I'd like to
think my smile or laugh from other angles, as I do both frequently.
Maybe the vest if I'm wearing it.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
(a) Another Day, Another Dungeon by Greg Costikyan, followed closely by
anything by Terry Pratchett or Douglas Adams.
(b) I really couldn't say for certain, although if the question
were what movie I'd seen the most times, it would easily be
"The Rocky Horror
(c) My favorite genre of music is filk (please, ask). My typical playlist
contains a combination of filk, traditional folk, modern folk, and
pop (largely 80s pop), with the occasional surprise of something
orchestral, or TSO, or something else random. I really like songs
which tell a story.
(d) My favorite cuisine is probably Indian, with Thai and
Japanese coming closely behind.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Other than the necessities for life, I've done pretty well at
getting by without most comforts at times. Air, water, etc. make a
pretty boring answer to this question. Instead, I'll say I'd never
want to be without companionship, trust, joy, wonder, freedom, and
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I don't think I really have a typical Friday night. If it's the
weekend of a convention I'm attending (probably about six a year at
present count), then I'll show up in the filk room at some point.
Otherwise, I'm hopefully spending the evening with a small group of
friends: likely a nice dinner followed by games, quiet
conversation, or watching a movie or a geeky television series on
DVD. Barring that, I'm either at my computer talking via IM, or
near it reading or playing a video game. This is rougly in order of
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
There's little, if anything, I won't share about myself if asked.
However, this seems as good a place as any to mention this: I'm
It's not something I go out of my way to tell people unless it's
relevant to them. However, I do make certain that potential lovers
know and understand what that means to me so they can make an
informed decision about whether they want to get involved with me.
It seems to be a term that means many different things to different
people, so please, do feel free to ask me about it. There's little,
if anything, I won't share about myself if asked.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You are a geek, a nerd, and/or a weirdo who would like to meet more
kindred spirits. You believe a nice dinner followed by a board game
would make a good date.
