Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm creative, analytical, and flexible, and I appreciate
intelligence and curiosity in other people. I missed the dating
scene the first time around, and I'm looking to fix that. I'm
totally a hipster, but I can laugh about it.
I have pursued interests like studying Japanese
and adjusting to a polyphasic sleep
pattern. I've dabbled a little in locksport, creating games and
writing speculative fiction.
That's a few sentences that are true. But if that's not enough,
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm working as an engineer-in-training
consulting engineering business. I live in a house with a couple of
my friends. Right now I'm planning a trip with my sister to Japan

I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I like to think that I'm good at a lot of things, but here is a
smattering of things that other people actually do come to me for
Board game rules
Spelling and grammar conundra (or is it conundrums...?)
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm a little bit shy, and I can get pretty intense once I get into
my element. (Let's talk about something interesting, like recent

episode of some TV show.) I've been told that I have an interesting
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I read sci-fi
ebooks and audio books. I've started reading more non-fiction on
topics like quantum physics
I used to play a lot of video games, but I do a lot less of that
these days. If you are/were a gamer, drop me a line, and let's chat
about some old favourites. :)
My most-listened-to music includes Sonata Arctica, MC Frontalot,
and Simon and Garfunkel. My music compilation also has a bunch of
Japanese bands in it, including Bump of Chicken, Anthem, and
I mostly cook vegetarian
food (with a sprinkling of
seafood thrown in now and then). When eating out, I especially like
Thai food, Indian food and sushi. (If you are a meat eater, that

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.

What makes a game fun and/or successful?
How can [insert generic thing] be made better?

On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
At home reading something on the interwebs, out shopping for
groceries, chilling with some friends at my place, reading a book,

You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
I think I'd like to chat with you if:
- you enjoy smart conversations about a wide range of topics.
- you like to go out, but also enjoy nights in, playing board
You might like to chat with me if:
- you're interested in design.
- you like social role playing games.
- you'd like to paint things (I organize a miniature painting party

Send me a wink or a message, and let's talk. I'm a little shy (and
sometimes a little dense), so your best bet to hear from me is if
you take things into your own hands. :)
