Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hi! I'm a Catalan, polyamorous, not entirely straight dude. Here's
an assortment of facts about me:
-I grew up in a village where I was 12.5% of the population.
-Good at staving off existential crises.
-Learning probability theory in university was the most
life-changing event of my 20's. It made me furious that it hadn't
been taught to me in high school. Hell, in primary school. It's
essential knowledge for making decisions in life. Because of
probabilistic illiteracy people are wasting their money and health
on beautifully packaged fake medicine, are wasting their valuable
daydreams on fantasies of winning the lottery, are hiding from
painful thoughts behind the comfort of a spirituality that
misdirects the already confusing quest for a satisfying life. It's
pissing me off just to write about it.
-While I'm pissed off: Gender roles. Fuck them.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Writing and programming and hoping to produce something I'll be
proud of. I'll settle for something I can buy whiskey with though.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Cooking. I have total mastery over rice and over chicken soup and
my allioli success rate is well above 50%.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My unfriendly, humorless facial expression. I tell myself people
find it sexy and mysterious. My fake smile is a horror I only
unleash when I feel uncomfortable.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Food: I like everything, and I like it a lot.
Music: I don't have any favorites. I'll listen to anything I
particularly like until I hate it. Usually classical music and
And now, onto works of fiction that I like. I might go overboard
Movies: Amadeus (My favorite of all time. To me, they don't get any
better than that), Ghost World (my definitive teen angst movie),
Cabaret, The Girl Who Leapt Through Time, The Night of Varennes,
Robocop (I was shocked to see that it is, really, seriously, a
brilliant movie), Persepolis, Shortbus.
Comics: Gunnm (Pretty much the piece of fiction I've enjoyed the
most in my life. My goal is to be able to create a story and
characters as engaging as these. I've obsessed over every panel
trying to figure out what makes it so good. It's also interesting
to look at the sequel to figure out what makes it so disappointing)
, Persepolis (can't decide on whether the movie is better), Box
Office Poison, anything by Jiro Taniguchi.
-War and Peace (After you get through the first 200 pages it's
pretty much the best book ever)
-This Boy's Life (My childhood wasn't even a bit as bad as Tobias
Wolff's, so it makes me feel guilty that I identified so much with
-Harry Potter and the Methods of Rationality (Read it. READ
-Midnight's Children (A weird case. A guy in a hostel gave it to me
and I had nothing else to read. I couldn't stand the writing style.
Some sentences pissed me off so much I would give up reading it in
disgust. Then I would wonder how it continued and I would pick it
up again, sometimes from the trash can. When I was done i realized
"Fuck, this is now one of my favorite books." and I read it
-Notes from Underground (If you are bitter and misanthropic as hell
this is a great book. Now that I'm not much of either anymore it's
lost some charm but is still a lot of fun, in its own horrifying
-Lilith's Brood (This book made me feel very, very, uncomfortable.
It was awesome. I might have showered afterwards.)
No. Don't even get me started.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Writing material, reading material and solitude. Good food, music
and people. I think that's all I need to live. I'd miss booze and
videogames a whole lot, though.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Rationality, laziness, politics, social justice, storytelling and
game design. But mostly food and sex.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I close the curtains, make sure no one is home, put on my
headphones and start dancing like an idiot. Occasionally the dog
You'll never see it though.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You think that we might get along and that what we are looking for
I'm a bit of a loner; the idea of sharing my life with someone is
not appealing to me. What I do find appealing is sharing moments
and good times with people that I like and falling for them now and
I have a tendency to fall for awesome cold, geeky, promiscuous,
intellectually passionate people.
