Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
What am I even supposed to say here?
My name is Ian.
I currently live in Champaign, IL. However, my permanent residence
is Cottage Grove, MN, and I go there over my breaks.
I am looking for a strong long term relationship. I love
companionship. I am loyal and caring and I hope to find someone who
is the same.
I guess the number one thing about me is I am rather "nerdy". I
love video games and science fiction shows and movies. I am an avid
Whovian, but I do enjoy many different types and forms of scifi. I
also love my technology. Everything from my computers to my
I like video games a lot. I play a lot of Minecraft with my
friends. I also enjoy all types of games. My favorite being
Bioshock. Oh...and I absolutely love Minecraft.
I also tend to feed my inner child on a regular basis. I like toys
a lot, mainly Legos. But, I also collect die cast cars/planes,
among other fun hobbies. I am currently a member of the U of I
airsoft team, which is the only sport I play on regularly. I also
like to bike.
I also love traveling. I have been to all fifty states and 18
countries around the world. There are so many places I want to
visit and so many things I want to see. Life is too short and I
want to see the world.
I'm kind of the hipster type. I enjoy many forms of art, from
paintings and sculpture to music and film. I enjoy making music and
movies, but that tends to be overshadowed by just sitting down and
enjoying the two. I collect vinyl, my preferred music format, and I
also collect a lot of movies. I love photography, although I have
trouble finding time for it. I also find myself drawing a lot. Not
terribly good at it, but I like it.
I currently have two tattoos, one on each arm, but I definitely
plan on getting more in the future. I believe it's a meaningful way
to express yourself.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am currently attending school at the University of Illinois
Champaign-Urbana. As of right now, I'm studying Mechanical
Engineering, but that may change.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I honestly have no idea. People say I'm good at things like drawing
and writing, but I disagree.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Technology, my car, friends, music, my dog, and some other cliche
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The future. I don't know what to make of it.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Playing some video games all night or maybe getting together with
my friends or family and enjoying a good movie (or two, or eight).
Otherwise I enjoy going out and spending time with my friends.
