Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
The daunting task of writing a description of myself without making
it read like a used car ad. Kind and patient come to mind.
Easygoing, trusting, optimistic to the bitter end. Great mileage
I love hanging with friends but don't mind being on my own from
time to time. When heading out we're usually headed for a
restaurant, a movie theater or pub. Every now and then I gather
some friends and we'll head out for a club or festival.
Whenever I'm stuck at home, I usually pick up a book, play a game,
listen to some music, practice playing piano (emphasis on practice,
a musical genius I am not), work on some project I'll inevitably
lose interest in and leave half finished or simply watch a movie.
When the sun's out, I grab my boots and go for a walk. On clear
nights I like to grab my telescope and go stargazing.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Prior to this I studied history with the intention of becoming a
teacher, but job prospects were looking pretty grim. Since I
couldn't grow a proper hobo beard I had to land a myself a job. So
I decided to pick up Software Engineering instead and landed a job
as web developer shortly after. Nowadays I work full-time and study
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Wasting time. I'll always find something to do. I don't think I've
ever been bored for longer than 10 minutes.
Listening. It's a bit of a cliché, but I'm a good listener.
Something that has proven immensely useful during long colleges.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
For some reason I am pretty much always in a good mood. I suspect I
had a pair of invisible rose-tinted glasses surgically attached to
my face at birth.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books - Both fiction and non-fiction. Ones that
come to mind are "The Road" by McCarthy, "Ender's Game" by Orson
Scott Card, "Rendezvouz with Rama" by Arthur C. Clarke and "Cosmos"
by Carl Sagan. Plus a metric fuckton of field related works.
Shows - Doctor Who occasionally. Battlestar
Galactica's pretty neat. Not a huge series buff, though I did
manage to sit through the first three seasons of Game of Thrones in
just over a week.
Music - I'll listen to pretty much anything,
ranging from electro to classic, Postal Service to Pendulum,
Gregorian chant to Tibetan throat singing. Then there's this whole
cheesy 80's synthpop revival going on which I can't seem to get
Food - Basically, if it's stir fried I'll eat it.
Other than that lasagna and sushi are easily among my
Games - I'm not picky. But my favorite genre would
probably be RPG's, followed by 4X and survival/horror. Every month
I gather with some friends and we'll play boardgames or D&D.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.

Books - I love a good book from time to time.
Mostly comedy, SciFi, dystopian or post-apocalyptic stuff. Never
cared that much for Elves and Dwarves though.
Clear nights - Backyard astronomy is a bit of a
hobby of mine. I've spend quite a few nights behind a telescope
tracing constellations, following planets and looking for odd
cluster or galaxy. Usually complete missing them. I never claimed I
was any good at it.
The fireplace - The best place to be in any house.
Especially when it's lit.
The internet - Revolutionized the world in ways we
would've never foreseen. Very, very convenient as
Baths - By now I qualify as semi-aquatic. May or
may not sprout a pair of gills.
My dog - A chocolate brown Labrador, and quite
possibly the laziest dog to ever walk the earth.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The usual, universe, future, technology, why slipping into new
socks for the first time feels so good.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Probably traveling home after a week of studying and working.
Sounds boring, but after a 5 days of deadlines and studying
sometimes you just want to crash on a couch and do fuck all. If I
do manage to haul my ass into gear I'm usually off to bother a
