Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a consummate learner, an intellectual, a good
conversationalist, a musician, and an all-around nice guy -- or at
least I try to be. I'm driven by a passion to learn things. I lived
in Japan for three years before coming back to get my masters in
computer science, and now I work as a software engineer. I love
math and science, art, politics, and anything that can give me new
things to think about. I can talk about pretty much everything with
a willing partner.
I'm not looking for a short-lived and meaningless relationship. I'm
looking for something real, with someone whom I can call equally my
friend and my partner. I make a great boyfriend: I'm sweet,
considerate, passionate, fun, and absolutely loyal. Not to toot my
own horn, or anything.
Myers-Briggs says I'm an INTP. I'm skeptical of the concept in
general, but it seems as accurate assessment of my basic
personality traits as any. I throw it out there for those who take
stock in such things.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working as a software developer for a small-ish (slightly larger
than startup?) company in downtown Chicago. I write a lot of code,
mostly Python (at work) and Haskell (at home). I love learning math
as a hobby; currently I'm studying logic, type theory and category
theory to varying degrees of rigor. Currently learning about
dependent type theory via the Coq interactive theorem prover. Ask
me about that. It's the shit.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Talking to my dog in an embarrassingly cutesy voice. But he's the
only one who gets to hear me do that.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Music: mostly metal. Pretty extreme stuff, because that's where one
tends to find the most innovation and variety. A few I've been
spinning recently: Lykathea Aflame, Ulcerate, Nails, Artificial
Brain, Sikth, Wormed, Wolves in the Throne Room... many others. I
have many other genres I enjoy as well, however; I like classical
(esp. 19th century romanticism), rock, EDM, top 40 pop, musical
Movies: Lots of movies although not nearly as many as I probably
should have seen. I generally try to see the Oscar-nominated movies
at least. I'm not above catching a stupid comedy or a popcorn flick
TV: Football season is over (boohoo!) but it was great while it
lasted. My TV watching has dwindled in response, but perhaps I'll
return to my reality-TV-watching ways. I'm no aficionado on TV, to
Books: I mostly read a lot of math and computer science books,
which I love. I'm also a big fan of A Song of Ice and Fire (the
series upon which Game of Thrones is based).
Food: I love Italian, Mexican, Ethiopian, Moroccan, and pretty much
any Asian food. I love hot dogs and I make (prepare, really)
somewhat fancy hot dogs on a regular basis. I make killer tuna
salad sandwiches too. I'm a huge fan of beer, especially IPAs.
Hoppy makes me happy.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Usually just vegging out with some good beer and food, possibly
hitting a bar with some friends. Also recently, Friday nights have
often been spent playing Magic: The Gathering. I know, nerdy, but
don't knock it till you've tried it.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
* You're intellectual, in whichever way you interpret that
* You don't do drugs.
* You genuinely care about being a nice and kind person.
* You see the good in things sooner than you see the bad.
* You like dogs. Or at least, you like my dog :D
