Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hi! I just moved to Ibaraki, Osaka. It's beautiful here! I'm so
happy to arrive in Japan in the spring. But since I am new here I
don't know wherr anything is or have any friends. Will you be my
friend? Both male and female friends are fine. :)
I'm a writer, costumer, reader, gamer, amateur astronomer and
artist. Among other things.
Every couple years, I tend to sell off a bunch of my possessions so
I can travel. I went to England in 2007 and Paris/London in 2012.
Both were crazy and awesome and I’ll never regret it. And now I'm
in Japan! Feel free to ask me about them. I love to travel.
I'm an often silly guy, and love to make people laugh, even at the
expense of being "cool." I love going out and doing stuff, though I
usually like a 24-hour-notice. I'm totally happy staying in and
sharing my favorite TV show or movie with someone, too.
I see art and stories in everything, everywhere I go. I like to
focus on that beauty and positivity; I deeply believe if you think
positively, you’ll feel positive. I don’t allow the more negative
aspects of the world consume me. I try to have a light heart and
enjoy making people laugh.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Teaching English in Ibaraki, Osaka. My Japanese is probably
somewhere between poor and okay. Hopefully that will improve after
living in Japan for awhile. I studied it for four years in college,
but that was over 10 years ago and I haven't needed to use it much
since. I hope I'll pick it back up quickly, though.
When I'm not working, I choose to pass the time with stories;
writing novels filled with science fiction and fantasy. Carving out
little niches where people treat each other with love and respect
and take care of their planet. In other words: I am a writer! My
focus is science fiction/fantasy, often with some sort of queer
content. I dabble in everything though! I have a short story
published, a full length novel at the querying process and several
more in the wings.
I also take private story commissions, sell my artwork on Etsy/at
art shows/conventions, and run a growing YouTube channel.
I run for exercise several times a week, and I'm working my way up
toward doing my first 5k. I'm also fond of scenic bike riding and
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Writing, listening (or so I'm told), artsy stuff, collecting
things, costuming, making my friends laugh . . . Oh, sleeping! I'm
very, very good at that. Making a fool of myself and not getting
embarrassed over it. (Usually.)
I like to bake and I usually find it a stress release. I'm not the
best or the worst at it, but my friends always enjoy the occasional
surprise baked goods.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Almost all of my clothing are vintage 1960s-70s shirts which are
usually extremely bright and colorful. People almost always notice
them. I also look younger than I am, which I don't really mind, but
can be amusing at times. I've been told I have a nice smile.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
My favorite books are usually science fiction/fantasy types:
, for instance. I enjoy all sorts of books; I was an
English major! I'd be here all day if I started trying to list them
My favorite movies are similar to books, science fiction/fantasy.
Some favorites:Lord of the Rings, the
Wars triology, the Back to the Future triology,
Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Peter Pan (2003),
Brian and Velvet Goldmine.
It doesn't list TV, but here are a few: Doctor Who (mostly old school),
Star Trek (all,
but I haven't seen Voyager), Firefly, Whose Line Is It
Anyway?, Robot Chicken, Blake's 7, Pushing Daisies, Monty
Python's Flying Circus
Usually I prefer a specific song to an entire album/group or even
genre. I just like music. Who sings/performs it is less important
to me. Here's a handful of artists I love: The Beatles, Bob Dylan and Al Stewart, George Harrison's solo work,
I like musicals, too. I've recently fallen out of seeing musicals
and plays; I'd love to start going again.
I am making a big effort to eat healthier, and it's important for
me to find someone who is into that. I love gourmet foods, and will
try almost anything once. I like pie a lot. I am not vegetarian,
but my best friend is vegan (so I've been trained well and enjoy
most veg*n cuisine). I love most fruit, especially mangoes and
pineapple. I love bacon and sushi!
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1) a way to write down my stories/thoughts/dreams,
2) my friends/family,
3) some sort of loving, fluffy pet,
5) a supply of books to read, and
6) a clear night sky to appreciate the stars.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Story ideas, Great Danes (I think I'd like to own one someday), how
I can continue improving my diet so I eat healthier.
There are more galaxies in the universe than there are people on
our planet; more stars than all the grains of sand on all our
beaches. I think about that sort of thing a lot.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I love to go out to shows, concerts, dinner-and-a-movie, museums,
Disneyland, the beach or somewhere else fun. I'm the type to pack a
picnic basket and have lunch on top of a hill. On a typical Friday
night? I'm working and then maybe playing Minecraft for my YouTube

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
