My self-summary
(If you star my profile please also message me, because otherwise I cannot see you)

You should know these things: I'm currently in a relationship, and my partner knows I'm here. We're not monogamous, but I'm happy with where we are. I'm here primarily to make friends right now, and also for casual sex and/or friends-with-benefits type deals.

I'm a pretty shy and quiet guy, really. I'm much better at talking over the internet than I am face-to-face, at least until I'm comfortable around you. In social situations that involve large groups, I function much better with people I know and am comfortable with.

I much prefer socialising with one person at a time, or in small groups.

I'm quite interested in physics and linguistics, and, in fact, anything that involves taking something apart to see how it works. That includes the people around me (minus the "taking apart" bit!) I like paying attention to small details and learning each person's idiosyncrasies. If that seems creepy and off-putting to you, then I'm afraid we probably won't get along. I also have a life goal of learning every language that there is. It's not realistic, but it's very motivating.
What I’m doing with my life
After finishing high school, I took a year out and went backpacking for three months in Europe with my partner of the time. It was an absolute blast, and I would recommend it (but take more money with you than we did).

I came back, quit my job, and moved to Sydney with the intention of studying, majoring with honours in physics, and moving to Switzerland to work on the LHC project. I've wanted to do that for as long as I can remember.

But I changed my mind, and I am now doing a Bachelor of Arts at the University of Sydney, with a focus on Linguistics and French. I'm also trying to learn Polish, which is challenging but a lot of fun.

For this year, though, I've put that on hold to try and get myself a little more financially stable - so I'm working in a post office. I'm contemplating transferring to do my degree online instead.

Long-term, I want to end up in a job that involves travelling, learning new things about the world and experiencing different cultures. I hope to work as a translator/interpreter, or anything that involves speaking different languages and meeting people from all around the world.

I'm also very much trying to improve my awareness of how to be a good person. I'm working hard, day by day, to educate myself on all the different sorts of people that make up this world, myself included.
I’m really good at
Learning different languages, and linguistics (no, not the same thing, I'll fight you), playing the guitar, and playing table tennis. People who have known me a while tell me I'm funny, but my delivery is very very dry, and I sometimes forget that when making jokes, which can mean that people don't realise I'm joking - this is something I'm trying to be conscious of and improve.
The first things people usually notice about me
I don't really know. I used to have green hair and that would have been the answer. Now I guess I'm just completely unremarkable, that sounds reasonable.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Possibly my two favourite book series are Douglas Adams' Hitchhikers' Guide to the Galaxy series and Stephen King's Dark Tower series. I also recently finished reading the first Dune novel, and really enjoyed it.

I don't know if I have a favourite movie, I like most of them. Notable high points are The Princess Bride, the Star Wars films, the entirety of the Marvel Cinematic 'Verse, Blade Runner.

As far as television goes, I don't watch very much of it. Recent highlights have been Bob's Burgers and Bojack Horseman, as well as Rick and Morty. I'm also a big fan of Last Week Tonight. I'm thinking about starting Steven Universe soon, looks like a lot of fun. I've also recently jumped on the MBMBaM train - podcast and TV show alike.

My favourite bands and musical artists include the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Gorillaz, Deltron 3030, MF DOOM, and Uyama Hiroto, as well as Electric Six, Boards of Canada, and Daft Punk, the Arctic Monkeys, Stromae, Ryuichi Sakamoto, The Whitlams, Panic! At The Disco, Fall Out Boy, MCR, The Used, Hozier, Boy and Bear, Ball Park Music, Yves Klein Blue, The White Stripes, Kanye West...basically, assume I like it - I'll tell you otherwise.
Six things I could never do without
I don't know about six. I need a purpose, whether I make it for myself or it's given to me.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
- Sock symbolism

- The prime factors of the current time

- The abundance of usernames on this site that end in "-tron" and "-inator". Did I miss this trend? (Actually, thanks to a lovely person from Croatia, I now know that this is what OKCupid does when you choose a name that's already taken. Much nicer than sticking a bunch of numbers on the end! Thank you, Eulbthecat)

- All of the rest
On a typical Friday night I am
Sometimes working, sometimes out for a quiet drink, usually at home wishing I had something better to do.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
My password is hunter2 and I use it for everything.
You should message me if
You should message me if:

-You are looking for friends and think I would make a good one.

-You clicked 'Like' on my profile. Seriously, I don't pay for this so there's over 100 people I have accumulated over the years as mystery likes and the curiosity is too much. I'll pretty much always respond, unless I really don't think we'll match.

You can also message me if:

-You want to go on cute dates at dumb cafes and in small bars, or to the movies, and maybe see where it goes from there. <-- we can also do this thing without any seeing where it goes, you can totally have a date as friends and more people should!

If you've made it this far, send a message. You can seriously talk to me about anything that interests you, learning new things is my passion. Tell me what you love! Ask me about what I love!

I probably won't message first unless we match or I'm feeling particularly brave, so if you're curious then it can't hurt to send a message.
The two of us
