My self-summary
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
Currently I'm working in South Korea
I’m really good at
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 nice though.

Watching youtube videos. If that counts as a skill.

Knitting...well, I'm not amazing. But I can do socks and gloves and stuff.

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
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.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Rurouni Kenshin trilogy / Pacific Rim / Skyfall / Casino Royale / The Lord of the Rings Trilogy / The Avengers / Captain America

Kamen Rider / Super Sentai / In The Flesh / Doctor Who (pre Moffatt) / Scrubs / Tonbi / City Hunter / Bitter Blood / Bloody Monday / Ouroboros

The Nightrunner Series / The Fault in Our Stars / Lamb / Artemis Fowl / Ender's Game

One OK Rock / Girls Generation / Shinee / Brown Eyed Girls /
The six things I could never do without
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
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.
International news.
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
Out with workmates.

But sometimes just in my apartment watching TV.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
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.
You should message me if
If you're 100% okay with the whole asexuality deal and you're not going to mock me or ask rude questions when you could EASILY just google the word asexual.
If you're looking for a friend.
If you just want someone to talk to.
If you're nice.
If you like Kamen Rider or Super Sentai (seriously I don't know anyone else who likes these things)
