Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hi. I'm Alex.
I don't want to waste your time or mine. If you want to go back and
forth online messaging and never meet in person, we probably aren't
a fit. Chemistry is important. It's not going to happen from behind
a computer screen. There's a LOT of questions I didn't answer that
I will happily answer in person.
I'm not perfect. I don't expect you to agree with everything I
believe, say, or do, but it goes both ways.
I know who I am and what I want. I hope you're up for the
adventure. Or challenge.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm an entrepreneur. Working on a new business. It makes me a
workaholic. And I'm trying to seek some balance.
I try to visit the Bay Area a few times a year to see some of my
extended family (cousins and their kids). We were very close
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I look younger than my age.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Kiyosaki, Trump, business biographies, Tim Keller, Rick
Warren, Cloud and Townsend, English lit. Classic lit, the kind you
were supposed to read in school but bought the Cliff's Notes
Movies: I don't watch movies often. Docs, indies, film festivals
are where I've spent my time when in a dark theatre. Some of my
favorite studio films are The Usual Suspects, Gosford Park, any
Disney / Pixar Animation, anything directed / produced by Hayao
Miyazaki / Studio Ghibli, Kurosawa, and there's more I can't think
Music: I listen to just about everything. Never got into country or
Shows: I like procedure shows. Leverage, Hustle, Suits, White
Collar. Reality shows like Amazing Race. Anthony Bourdain, strictly
for his commentary. Iron and Top Chef. Daily Show and Colbert.
Food: I'm Taiwanese. I will eat or try anything at least once. I
don't waste anything. It's how I grew up (while living in the US).
I abhor the term foodie. I grew up eating all kinds of stuff that
have now become some celebrity chef's overpriced ingredient on a
menu. If you don't like eating certain things, I will probably cook
it up differently and make you try it.
I try to avoid eating out when possible, and I've cut back on
eating meat and large portions. I have vegetarian meals regularly
to stay healthy.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I have my health. The questions here are ridiculous.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Half my weeknights consist of networking and business meetings.
Fridays I tend to stay in to recover.
