Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I like to spend my spare time electronically. My hobbies of choice
are video games and movies, and I often indulge both
simultaneously. I’ve recently been playing FFXIV, and it’s super
fun. I haven’t enjoyed an MMO like that since…ever. Really, any
kind of game is awesome, as long as there’s a good story, good
gameplay or good company!
I got to visit Japan for a month a couple years back, and it was
amazing (despite not knowing the language). The juxtaposition of
nature and urban sprawl was beautiful. I definitely want to go
back, and take some time to hop over to South Korea for a while, as
I am divorced. It doesn’t define who I am, but it matters to some,
so I like to give people that information.
Also, INFJ, for what it's worth.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I’m a software developer at an international printing company. It’s
freakin’ cool, man. I enjoy coding, and I get to work from home
whenever I want. It’s pretty awesome.
I'm also working on getting into better shape (like everyone else).
I want to be able to set that body type slot on the right to "fit."
I let myself slide a bit after college, and I need to get it back.
Shape up for the XBOne is super fun and a better workout than it
has any right to be.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Cats. And dogs. Really, animals in general tend to like me. Your
pets are guaranteed to like me.
I’ve been told that I’m good with kids. I don’t know why – it just
comes naturally. I do want kids someday, so it’s probably a good
thing that I’m good with them!
I can also make a mean water-drip sound with my mouth.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My dashing smile. Actually no – my glasses. My smile is a bit
crooked, really – a trait I inherited from my dad. Don’t worry –
it’s a charming crooked.
Also, I tend to be really sanguine in demeanor. The glass is half
full and stuff. It’ll always be better in the end – if it’s not
better, then it’s not the end. That sort of thing. It means that I
tend to be optimistic about most things.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Oh god, this is where it goes awry...
Wheel of Time series, Sandman by Neil Gaiman
Moulin Rouge, The Fifth Element, The Princess Bride, The Perks of
Being a Wallflower, Mononoke Hime
Game of Thrones, Doctor Who, Upright Citizen's Brigade
FLCL, Evangelion, Outlaw Star
Watsky, Eminem, Modest Mouse, Utada Hikaru
Lasagna, pizza, hotdogs (Gene & Judes is amazing)
Five Guys sucks. Just putting that out there.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Water, air, blah blah blah sarcasm...
The internet (and a computer to use it)
Art - specifically movies and video games, but also TV, music and
A creative outlet
A place to learn
Delicious, delicious Smashburger
That's enough, I think.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Science. Physics. Faster than light travel and quantum
teleportation. Gravity lensing and quantum entanglement. The
relative nature of the universe. The fact that something does not
exist until it is forced to do so by a measurement. That shit
amazes me. I almost double majored into physics in
college. I still enjoy reading about it. It’s so
Neil DeGrasse Tyson, Michio Kaku, Brian Greene – I will watch
anything these people do.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I like to watch movies and play games. Sometimes that’s cuddling up
on the couch, and sometimes that going to see Guardians of the
Galaxy then going bowling or to the driving range. I’m not into the
dive bar scene, but I enjoy a good chill bar. The Hala Kahiki
Lounge in River Grove is pretty awesome, especially after some
Gene’s & Jude’s just down the street.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I drink “girly” drinks exclusively. Well, also liquor. The point is
that I like sweet things, and I don’t care what others think about
Also, I have the eyelashes that you spent all that money and time
trying to replicate. It’s okay – you can be jealous.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You disagree that Asuka is the best Eva pilot. Or if you agree,
really, because no one ever does, and it’d be nice to find some
common ground on that particular subject.
You have a favorite RPG. Mine is Final Fantasy VI. It…kind of
defined my childhood and helped shape my beliefs.
You can tell me who Kintaro Oe is without looking it up. Or
Hironobu Sakaguchi. The two are unrelated.
Who are you looking for?
This helps us know who to show you on OkCupid.
