My self-summary
Steven looking for his Connie.

Nerd/gymrat/artist. I dress nice and make good food and excellent drinks. Looking for someone to paint, lift, or play games with. If you're a cynic with a deep, abiding disdain for Republicans and bigots of all kinds, chances are high we'll get along.

Intersectional Feminism and a love of fiction are huge pluses.

5'9", 5'11" with the pomp-in-training.
Half-Japanese, if you care about that sort of thing.
Looking for someone to catch up on Sailor Moon reruns with.

I have strong principles that I won't hold anyone to, being that we're all different. Yeah, I'm a loudmouth about third wave feminism and civil rights and class warfare and religious tolerance (insofar as it doesn't give license to step on the rights of others) but I get it if those things don't matter to you. That would be a reason it would never, ever work between us. The one thing I absolutely need in a partner is someone who believes in humanity.

In three words I am nerdy, goofy, and artistic. I draw, paint, craft, knit, sew, embroider, cook, and usually while watching something funny, weird, depraved, or something I can make snarky comments about. If I'm *really* close to someone, I'd be doing all those things for them. With them. To them.

If I want to impress you, then in person I'm going to be witty. I'm going to try to make you laugh. It's your right not to, but if you don't I'm going to be hurt and discouraged. And that's ok too.

That's about it I guess.
Bother me on IG and dumblr:
I also started streaming drawing sessions:
What I’m doing with my life
Working out and cooking every day. Managing my health is my full-time hobby now.

I work in IT. It's as dry and uninteresting as everyone says. I just got picked up by a nerd goods company to be their illustrator, so I have that going for me now.

In my spare time I draw, paint, knit, craft, knit, sew, embroider cook, and watch funny, weird, or depraved things, usually with other people.
I’m really good at
Anything to do with my hands, really. Don't think too much on that one, I've already listed why above. Don't let me near your gadgets. I will hack them. Or break them. Either might happen.

I make pretty okay coffee. I like it stronk.

I love finding terribly subtle and esoteric jokes. Like, making a Spotify playlist devoted entirely to lady singers, naming it GRRL POWER and making the first track "Settle Down". Recently I left the toilet seat up in a unisex bathroom at a feminism rally. I'm looking for someone to laugh and share in those types of things.

I'm stupid good at whistling. Might be useless, might be that I 'm destined to be a famous whistler. Who even fucking knows. (MEANINGLESS UPDATE - I got asked to whistle for a record!!). Let me whistle a thing, it's soulful and expressive and not at all shrill and wispy >_>

If I'm in a tiled hallway or bathroom I'll be whistling jaunty video game themes
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm either whistling, humming, singing, dancing or drumming constantly. It's an affliction, please help (just dance and sing with me)

My shoulders, they're the big and comforting kind.

Other than that, my personality fills a room. I get silly and vulgar once I'm comfortable with the people in it.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Been reading a lot lately. Halfway through Dune Chronicles (Lost steam at God-Emperor :T ), Coraline, A Song of Ice and Fire, Dracula, and H.P. Lovecraft's stuff.

Hipster trifecta: Wes Anderson, Chris Nolan, and Quentin Tarantino. All of their movies have some measure of excellence to them and I could rewatch them over and over again. Apart from them, I love Ghibli movies (Cultural imperative, I am half-Japanese after all), old 80's teen/kidventure movies, sci-fi no matter how bad, etc. I'll watch anything, really. You learn more from watching badstuff than you do good stuff.

I'm done with comic book movies. There are a few I still love but goddammit Marvel is ruining how and what movies are getting made.

I'm pretty picky about TV (And nerdy stuff in general) but my favorite things are Star Trek, 30Rock, Arrested Development, Friends, Parks and Recreation, Scrubs, The Office, Archer, Steven Universe, Adventure Time, Sailor Moon, Jojo's Bizarre Adventure, Gravity Falls, Bob's Burgers, and Venture Brothers. I'll always have a soft spot for pre-Smith Doctor Who and and episode 1 of Sherlock (the smartest man in the room trope is stale, so very stale) I'm getting into Battlestar Galactica and Farscape (required viewing before Dragon Con this year). I am wayyyy into the Netflix Originals: Orange is the New Black, House of Cards, Bojack Horseman, and most lately The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.

Music music music all the music forever. I'm in and around the southern hardcore/metal scene. I'll give anything a shot, but if I don't like it, it usually comes down to whether or not it sounds like shit, not anything to do with genre loyalty. If it's representative of a genre, then hecka yes I love it.

Generic favorite foods: Sushi, pizza. I have an excuse for the first one, though. I'm adventurous though, I'll try anything once. Anchovies = #1
The six things I could never do without
Hurr hurr lol I am smartass pedant I cannot live without oxygen food or water durr hurr hurr
I spend a lot of time thinking about
how cute skewed teeth can be sometimes.

I kind of wish I could be Goth. I mean, I've got the clothes, I have the outlook, and I love the music. I just don't have "it", you know? (UPDATE: Someone called me Goth the other day! My parents have never been less proud.)
On a typical Friday night I am
Whistling some Undertale shit or Perturbator or something
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Instead of paying for OKC to boost my profile, if I edit it subtly in the evening, it gets placed in the "Local Activity" feed that people in my area are met with when they log in.

I feel like that trick has not worked since admitting I've been doing it.
You should message me if
If "Wubba Lubba dub-dub" means anything to you.

you like the unseasonable profile photo .

you've got that Netflix, grilled-cheese look in your eyes.

you know that my barbs are just butter knives.

It's not a race thing, but if you can cosplay Connie Maheswaran alongside my Steven we would be the c u t e s t p e o p l e

The thing to take away from my page is that I'm cynical and sarcastic on paper. In person, I'm extremely friendly and absolutely harmless. If you can match my sarcasm, chances are high we'd get along really well. (also if you like anchovies on pizza, we're destined to eat together)

Message me if you're interested. I'm through reaching out to people. I'm mainly looking for people older than me, I'm out of patience for people who do not have their shit together.
