I'm not even native to the US, so I'm far from your typical
Minnesotan guy. I don't give a shit about sports. I'll never hunt.
I can count on one hand the number of times I've been fishing. I'll
never have a truck. Beards are a little annoying to maintain. What
I do have are a very particular set of skills. Skills I have
acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare

What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a quality systems specialist for a biopharmaceutical/ medical
device testing company. I can build computers and generally like to
fix things, if I can. I'm completely self-sufficient (I live alone
with my cat) and I'm debt-free with a decent credit score, saving
up for a house. Basically - I've got my sh*t together.
The only reason I'm on here is that as an immigrant, I didn't grow
up here and develop those life-long school friends, and the few
others I had made were usually friends of previous partners that
disappeared once the relationships were over. It's kind of tough
with no family and few friends in this big ol' country of yours!
Show me some kindness and I'll teach you how to speak properly. ;)
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Tech support and listening.
Cooking almost anything.
Playing guitar (I wouldn't say REALLY good, but I have been playing
since I was about 15).
Making eye-rolling puns and quoting nerdy things.
Solving problems, puzzles, and anything else that involves
Analysing at things from all perspectives.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
accent. The blue eyes. And hair I guess. I've gone with a shorter,
messier look lately. Also that I look really young for my age. When
I was in my LATE 20's I got carded for a PG-13 movie. -_- But I
also managed to pass for a high-school student on the San Francisco
public transport and get a discounted fare. Yeah, I'm a
I'm probably also wearing a pop-culture T-shirt, or stripes. I
clean up pretty well with pants and a dress shirt too.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Red wine over white.
Tea over coffee (but I do drink both).
Hot over cold.
Summer over winter (why do I still live here?).
Cooking over restaurants.
True love over casual dating.
Hanging out over formal "dates" (though frequent date nights with a
s/o are a must once we become exclusive).
Dogs over cats (though I do have an adorable kitty).
Comfort over fashion.
Weird over normal.

Sorry. That should've come first).
Music - Britpop
blues/rock, classic British rock
. Don't wanna sound
like a hipster, but most of the stuff I listen to... most people
don't know. Over here in the States, at least.
. . . ask me about them if you're interested. I'm not the
type to play games over spending time with someone, but I'm
definitely OK playing with someone, if they're into it. Also if you
just wanna play some mobile games with me like Words With Friends .
. . let me know, we can certainly do that.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Love, and also a furry animal. And my sonic screwdriver. Great for
scaring my cat away if he's being a little annoying without being
cruel. He doesn't like the sound it makes.
Internet and laptop. I can get pretty much anything else with those
things . . . ok, smartphone too. Makes the going to the bathroom
more fun (I'm just saying what most people are thinking). I
remember the days before these things. Those were dark, dark times.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Puzzles. Daydreaming about vacations, financial things, what to
make for dinner/buy for food, how to meet new people.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Darmok, on the ocean.
I'm not the sort of person to hit up a bar alone. I don't think
I'll meet anyone special that way. Weekends I'll usually see
friends and go on adventures. Or watch the worst movie we can find
on Netflix to make fun of. Hmm . . . I ended that sentence with a
preposition. Oh well.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
All I'm saying is . . . you've never seen me and Batman in the same
room at the same time.
I find it a little tricky to meet new people, with me being a bit
introverted and all. I've had some mild depression issues since my
breakup last year. I have nothing to hide from anyone. And in that
spirit - no, I don't have a huge penis. It's average. Maybe even a
bit on the smaller side. I don't know. It doesn't matter if you
know what you're doing!
Also I don't like peanuts, peanut butter, etc. To some this is a
bigger deal. (No pun intended). (OK slightly intended).
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
Someone with a wicked sense of humour (you just try to find
something that offends me - impossible!), can make and take silly
puns, appreciates popular internet humour, and is kind of a geek at
heart. Or at least appreciative of it. I mean, I cosplay at
conventions so it's something I'm quite invested in. It would be
fun to attend with a significant other in matching fandom costumes!
Please absolutely message me if you're just looking for someone
like me to hang out with. I would love to make some new platonic
friends! Sometimes I just want some company, y'know? I do tend to
get along more easily with females. I don't know why. Maybe I have
some feminine qualities. That, and I'm not into some stereotypical
guy things like sports and trucks and hunting.
I'm looking for the whole package - a best friend who's happy to
hang out and watch TV (the occasional player two for video games is
a plus) some days, and go out adventuring other days. Also must
love animals. In terms of looks . . . body size isn't important to
me, but a cute face with beautiful eyes and a nice smile is. Kind
of have a thing for red hair, so that's a plus but not a
