Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm 26 years old, working in Korea.
I also label myself as a demi-romantic asexual.
"Hey? What does that mean?" - you might be saying
First I must say that I have no issues at all with the gender
identity, sexuality, etc of an individual in terms of dating.
However demi-romantic means I need a deep connection and long
standing platonic relationship before I feel any romantic
attraction. Asexual means that I don't feel sexual attraction
though. I feel romantic attraction, the desire to be with someone
and have human contact but I don't actually have any desire to have
sex with anyone.
"That's impossible!" - you retort in ignorance
Sorry, it's not impossible. It's how I am. And it's left me very
confused in the dating world until I discovered what I am. I hope
anyone who reads this profile will be understanding and kind, and
if you have questions I can try and answer them if they're posed in
a nice way.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Currently I'm working in South Korea
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Making friends (though this isn't a skill I would personally label
myself with). People tell me I'm good at this but I'm afraid
they're overestimating my abilities for socializing. I'm definitely
Watching youtube videos. If that counts as a skill.
Knitting...well, I'm not amazing. But I can do socks and gloves and
Emotional investment. I should consider that a skill. Any
television show can make me cry. I am really good at attaching
myself to a character. I feel like that's the goal of anyone who
creates something, whether it is books or visual media. They want
to invoke emotions in their audience and so....I let it happen.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Dimples. I've got 'em. Maybe my chipmunk cheeks.
And how awkward I am around strangers. I'm assuming this unsaid
individual is a stranger. I'm really tense around new people. Lots
of people say I give off the impression of not wanting to be
touched. Unfortunately a lot of that stems from distrust of people
at first glance. But once I get to know you I am incredibly
affectionate and I love hugs.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
wifi connection for said laptop
diet coke (though I've been doing without this since August since
they don't sell it in South Korea anywhere near me)
probably food...can't live without food
some video/tv show to watch
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Lots of things. Issues of gender and racial equality and combating
my own personal privileges and biases to the best of my ability.
It's still a learning process and I have a long way to go.
Sexuality in all of its wibbly wobbly goobly gobbly-ness.
Whatever show or series is currently circulating in my mind.
Usually something creative or new, a story of my own making to
which I'm often thinking up new plot points even though I haven't
written in years. Though I'm trying now okay!!
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Out with workmates.
But sometimes just in my apartment watching TV.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I've never been in a relationship.
It doesn't bother me. I've also come to the conclusion that I might
very well end up alone. I'm traversing a world of relationships
that unfortunately does not make sense to me. The paths normal
couples take does not make me feel comfortable because I don't feel
instant attraction. This used to bother me. Nowadays I'm at peace
with it. I'm focused on living in the present and being me.
Whatever the world brings me, today or tomorrow, I'll be happy with
who I am.
