People close to me know that I'm always up for company, whether it's for board games, bowling, a Seahawks game, or even flying down to a nerd convention in Anaheim. When it's not possible to get together with friends in person. playing video games online is a convenient substitute.
I love sharing stories, and have plenty of conversation fodder having traveled to Germany and Taiwan in the recent past. (My parents are from Taiwan, and I try to visit relatives there every 2-3 years)
