Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
This is always a tough one to summarize. I guess we can start with
I'm from India but came to America 23 years ago. I was brought up
with more traditional Indian values (for example, I'm very
family-oriented) and am very close to my parents and sister. I love
animals and have a Shih Tzu of my own.
I went to the University of Maryland and graduated in December 2011
with degrees in Computer Engineering and Biology (what a
combination, right?). I've always been a huge technology/gadget nut
so I definitely wanted to major in something related to computers -
the latter degree was mostly just for fun. I'm currently working as
a software engineer with a business analytics firm in Arlington,
I love to make people laugh. I will admit that sometimes my jokes
require a bit of thinking, though. The better you get to know me
the more you'll understand my sense of humor - it's more often than
not situational though.
Though I'm looking to meet friends on here, I'm mostly interested
in finding a person to share my life with.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I've always managed to focus on a single goal at a time in my life
but now I'm trying to become more well-rounded (e.g. in school it
was grades) - I'm getting out more often and spreading my time over
different priorities like hitting the gym!
I'm also hopefully finding someone to share my life with soon...?
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Anything technology related - I'm around computers all the
I'd also go as far as to say that I'm "okay" at cooking. I've been
pretty self-sufficient when it comes to cooking (as needed) for the
better part of the last year and a half.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I can adapt and get along well with almost any group.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books - I suppose the last few things I've read have to mainly do
with diet and working out?
Movies - The Hangover for sure. I'm good with all sorts of
comedies, romance, and action movies - as long as it's not horror,
really. I watch Bollywood with the family or friends as well.
TV - I love investigation shows - CSI and Lie to Me. I'm also a big
fan of comedies like How I Met Your Mother and The Office (when
Steve Carell was still in it). Breaking Bad had me hooked for the
past few weeks when I burned through all 5 seasons...
Music - Almost anything. Pop, hip-hop, soft rock, 90s music,
Food - Meat tops the list. Chicken, fish, turkey...I've been fairly
consistent about it almost twice a day every day...in terms of
cuisine I'd put Thai up there.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Family, friends, my dog, chicken, exercise, and technology.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
how to challenge and better myself, the future, what I want from
life, the list goes on...
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Either out to a movie, spending time with family (and/or friends),
or sitting just online. Most probably asleep, though. I probably
have to rest up for whatever's planned for Saturday be it hiking or
rock climbing or a long gym session...
