Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Nothing out of the ordinary here. Just your average geek composed
of equal parts strangeness, oddness, insecurity, perfectionism and

I suppose that I could also mention some of the basics, just to get
it out of the way. I am a three decades old year old Danish...
person. Yes, that means that English is not my native language, so
please bear with me when I venture out on a road never
Although I have a degree in computer engineering, it is not really
that interesting. Thank [insert your preferred deity here] for the
Danish educational system, where universities are free.
I tend to think better when I am running. Maybe that is why my left
knee gave in a while ago from overexertion.
I have been writing
a quite a bit recently.
Articles, stories and the like. And I think I like it. A lot more
I am quirky, sleepy, and contemplative.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Trying to get by while engaging my interests. And trying to make
sense of it all (although I realise the futility of this). Working
overtime at the job, because I am too good of a colleague (or quite
possibly can't say no). Traveling to foreign countries as much as
possible, both for business and pleasure.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Listening, although it is quite possible that it is just a side
effect of my introversional tendencies. Being cryptic (especially
in writing). Getting less sleep than I ought to. Acting
inappropriately at the most appropriate of times.
I am also quite good at overintellectualising everything, reading
and extrapolating meanings and correlations into places where there
aren't, or perhaps shouldn't be, any.
I also have a Masters Degree in Not Making Any Sense. Working on
I am also pretty good at approximating accents.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
That I look geeky. I can't really help it, unfortunately. Not that
there is anything wrong with being a geek, but the term usually
brings out some not so pleasant connotations. I AM more than
capable of having a regular conversation. No, really.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
These are things that are very important in my life. I don't read
as much as I used to, but recent good books were "Dirk Gentlys
Holistic Detective Agency" by Douglas Adams and "Pattern
Recognition" by William Gibson. And I really should begin reading
more of those Haruki Murakami books. "Cryptonomicon" by Neal
Stephenson, while being a quite interesting historical novel,
proved to be almost too big of a mouthful, and I considered putting
it permanently back on the shelf several times over the course of
the almost full year it took me to get through it. I finished it
though, as I have told myself to stop doing things only halfway.
Heinlein is amazing, and Pullman's "His Dark Materials" turned out
to be a rather pleasant surprise.
Favorite movies are too many to mention but they include "Ghost in
the Shell" by Mamuro Oshii, "Oldboy" by Chan-wook Park and "Hotaru
no haka" by Isao Takahata. And Kevin Smith and Lars von Trier are
Music-wise I would say that I am rather diverse, although I have a
strong preference for ambient or loud music (yes, that can
sometimes be a quality in itself). Yoko Kanno, Fear Factory, Yo-Yo
Ma, Lamb and Peter Gabriel are all represented in my music
collection. I would also really like to see Beardyman live, which
incidentally is going to happen next month.
In regards to food, I am very fond of all things spicy. And for
some reason cravings for candy and other sugary stuff are not
Also, I am a bit of a beer snob.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
In no particular order:
The occational wank.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
If this is really it? The patterns and conformity of western
society. Birth->school->work->retirement->death. With
girlfriend, spouse and kids along the way. It is apparently what is
expected of you, and I am not sure I like it.
Why so many people bother coming up with a long list of positive
adjectives describing themselves on their profile, without
realising that it just makes them seem more bland and cliché.
Also, for some reason, the thought of blue skies and rolling hills
crosses my mind more often than what I think might be healthy.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Hanging out with friends and generally have a good time. At the
cinema, or perhaps at a concert.
Recently I have been working on weekends though. You'd think that
computers would run unsupervised...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am a very private person. I rarely open up to anyone and share my
feelings with them. I have secrets I will most likely never reveal
to anybody. Not exactly the best attribute for a relationship, is

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You happen to enjoy lengthy (and even passionate) conversations
about anything that isn't mainstream. You can abstract from general
consensus and straight thinking. And you have an open mind, and are
even slightly forgiving.
