My self-summary
Well, I am Doug.

Hi!! Nice to meet you :)

I live in Ontario, but I am working at an awesome job in Duarte! So if you live near Duarte I may be able to visit you after work, if our schedules line up that way.

I'm generally a happy guy, I prefer calm and quiet to chaotic, also I am one of the very few genuine nice guys out there. I am very dependable. I am quiet, serious, thoughtful, and kind. I am loyal and faithful. I am initially rather shy... until you get to know me.

I graduated from college in 2006 with a degree in Philosophy. I like to call it a degree in knowing how to think! Not many people are "trained to think" so to speak... and it shows, especially on the internet, lol. I greatly enjoyed my time in college and I found it to be a very fruitful and rewarding part of my life. I played in the "Wind Ensemble" which everyone just called Band xD I had a great deal of fun playing a diverse array of noisy percussion instruments.

I've got a wide variety of interests... I like going to the movies, swimming, wakeboarding, reading, watching anime, I used to make models (airplanes, rockets, etc) but I don't do that much anymore. the time I enjoy the most though, is hanging out with friends. I enjoy watching football or a movie and socializing, or going somewhere to eat. Once in a blue moon I like to go bowling - I love bowling, I even have my own shoes and a bowling ball.

Datelike activities I enjoy are: dinner and a movie (out or in), drinking, mini-golf, bowling, going to a bar, or something along those lines. Any combination thereof also sounds like fun.

if i have nothing better to do, I'll wind up killing time on the internet (usually facebook (please message me before you add me)), and chatting with people.

Here's a description of my Meyer's Briggs personality:

Also, I give good backrubs. If you need a backrub, just let me know and I'll give you one.

If there's anything else you want to know, feel free to ask :)
What I’m doing with my life
I am working at an awesome job in Duarte!

(so if you live near Duarte I may be able to visit you after work)

It's a bit difficult to describe, but most of what I do is create programs for machines that place electronic components on circuit boards. I find it to be a very interesting and rewarding job :) I do something different every day.
I’m really good at
Listening. Watching movies. Swimming. Answering questions. Taking computers apart and putting them back together. Reading (I am extraordinarily literate and have read many, many books). I can write very well, but I don't enjoy writing.

I am considered a walking encyclopedia by many of my friends. They will often ask me random questions they want to know the answers to lol.

I do know a lot of trivia. I like to keep up with what's going on at NASA. Space and technology and how technology works are subjects I can wax eloquent on with little provocation (In other words, I am a very shy and quiet guy, but get me talking about space or technology, or something along those lines, and show any interest at all, and I will keep talking about it). I know a lot about science and technology.
The first things people usually notice about me
Usually that I am quiet. After that, probably my intelligence. Occasionally I'm told my eyes. Other than that, probably personality things - I'm a pretty quiet person (especially in groups or around people I don't know), though I do very well in 1 on 1 situations. I'm willing to be talkative with the right person :)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Anime! I like anime. That said...

I enjoy reading just about anything! I own many, many, many books. I used to have a wall that was converted entirely into bookshelves, those are where I keep my old college textbooks and a lot of philosophy books.

Lately I have just been reading whatever books are popular / being made into movies I want to see.

Some books that I have read repeatedly are:
Various Star Wars novels. The Hobbit / Lord of the Rings. Thus Spoke Zarathustra. The Harry Potter series. Johnathan Strange & Mr Norrell. The Twilight series (I refuse to refer to it as a "saga." The writing is terrible and the movies are awful, but hey, everyone likes to watch a train wreck every now and then). The Eragon books. The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. The Hunger Games books.

On a side note, I need to find space in my room for more bookshelves.

Moving on...

I like movies, so long as they have good acting and a decent plot. I enjoy a wide variety of movies. Some of my favorites are
Star Wars. Pulp Fiction. Amelie. The Talented Mr. Ripley. The Dark Knight. Inception. Kill Bill. Zoolander. Gladiator. Dogma. Reservoir Dogs. Hot Fuzz. Back to the Future. The Lord of the Rings. Donnie Darko. 28 Days Later. Amelie. SLC Punk! Iron Man. V for Vendetta. American History X

Music: the same as movies, as long as it is good, I will listen to it. Generally I don't care for Country, but I have varied tastes, anything from Beethoven to Daft Punk to Lady Gaga to Pennywise to Sublime to Britney Spears to Metallica to Skrillex. I generally listen to spanglish radio on my way to work, or 102.7, 97.1, or NPR, whichever I find to be more entertaining on a given day.

Food is important, if you don't eat, you will be hungry.

I tend to order the same things whenever I go to fast food restaurants, I know my favorites and I tend to stick to them. Every now and then I'll try something new, just to see if I'll like it I will occasionally find a new favorite that way lol.

TV Shows I enjoy:
The Big Bang Theory (I own Seasons 1 - 6 on DVD) and
How I Met Your Mother, both are very entertaining shows.
They should never have stopped making episodes of Firefly.
animated: Invader Zim. Daria. Family Guy. occasionally The Simpsons. Avatar: The Last Airbender.

I recently got interested in watching Doctor Who. I just finished watching the entire 2005 reboot and now I'm interested in watching some of the Classic episodes. *sigh* another fandom for me to be involved in...

I like to watch both College and Pro football.
Additionally, I like PBS shows like NOVA and other educational television.
Anything esoteric or funny will catch my attention, like
Father Ted or The IT Crowd (which are both British comedy series).
Otherwise... I really don't watch too much TV.

I currently keep up with a few webcomics: Questionable Content, XKCD, Cyanide & Happiness, and (occasionally) Sinfest

And to conclude again, I watch anime! My favorites include Hellsing, Lucky Star, Neon Genesis Evangelion, The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, Bleach, Trigun.... and lots (and lots) more I can tell you all about if you want to ask :)

While not a requirement, it would be nice if you enjoy anime as well. If you're interested, here's a list of all the anime I've ever seen: http://myanimelist.net/animelist/WhiteLancer64
Six things I could never do without
the internet. food. sleep. companionship. anime. friends.

the order is up to debate
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Very long conversations and debates that I will never have with anyone.

What I would do if I gained some superpower <-- probably this more than any other topic is what i'm thinking about at any given time.

Whether or not someone will call or show up when they said they were going to.

Whether or not I will see a manned mission to the moon or Mars in my lifetime.

Detailed explanations of scientific topics.

How I would survive a zombie apocalypse.

How to accomplish a particular task that I have to do.

How much better (or worse) the world would be if I were in charge of the world.
On a typical Friday night I am
Watching a DVD, sitting on the computer, doing laundry (yay for clean socks), reading, watching anime, and / or hanging out with my cousin Brenda or my buddy Lawrence, unless alternative plans have been made!

It has been too long since I have been on a good date, which is one reason I have a profile here on OKC
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
If you're interested in how my mind works, read this:


I think it is an accurate description of how I process the world around me.

How I tend to fare in dealing with other people:


I have a deep and fairly profound appreciation for Lady Gaga's singing voice. She can sing, really sing, she has a great voice, and my favorite song of hers I have never heard played on the radio :)

If you're read this far, then I can assume you're interested, so I will take this opportunity to ask you this question: What do you think of Lady Gaga?
You should message me if
If you want to tell me what you think about Lady Gaga.

If you understand what I mean when I say "On OKCupid, caveat lector."

If you want to convince me that OK Cupid is NOT full of fail (a conclusion I am coming to due to the lack of responses to my messages to people)

If you feel like I am interesting

If you want to go on a date

If you want to ask ME any questions

Or just want to say hi! :)

Or any combination / all of the above!
The two of us
