I am the king of awkward! All hail the king! (unless you don't want to... that's cool too.)
Now for some Qs and As:
• Really, that awkward, huh?
Well... let's just say that the first word people use to describe me isn't "cool", anyway.
• So what are you, some kind of nerd, then?
Come on, you can't just go categorizing everyone and reducing them to a simple stereotype! People are more complex than- okay, yes... yes I am.
I try to spread my interests across the nerd spectrum: I hit the major ones, and wander outside the mainstream, but nothing too weird. I mean, sure, I custom-built a PC, downloaded Swedish cop dramas and British panel shows, then set it up to stream it all over the network to a game console... but that's all pretty normal, right?
• Uh... so anyway, what are you looking for in a woman-friend?
There are two qualities that really stand out to me as the most attractive: passion, and... well, compassion, actually (or empathy I guess, but that just messes up my wordplay.)
On one hand, speaking with someone when it's about what truly excites them is really engaging - whether it's art, a hobby, some niche interest, whatever; and if it's something that might appeal to me too, so much the better.
On the other, we all face our own difficulties in life, and I feel like a little more understanding could go a long way.
• So how is it someone like you, who's just so clever and talente- wait... are these actual questions you were asked, or did you just type all this yourself?
OH HEY LOOK ANOTHER PROFILE SECTION
I'm really good at
detecting cilantro in any food.
(You say "can't enjoy a flavour", I say... just let me pretend it's a superpower!)
Favourite books, movies, shows, music and food
This doesn't matter all that much, does it? I'd never refuse to associate with someone just because they didn't have the exact same taste as me. I mean, so what if you don't like Joss Whedon (even though you really should...) That's, y'know, fine... I guess.
All I ask is the ability to tolerate subtitles occasionally: there's really good stuff in other languages, I swear!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
If I'm fine using Windows or Mac, does that mean I'm... bitechual?
On a typical Friday night I am
Who needs Friday, when it's all about Wednesday... pub trivia night!
The most private thing I'm willing to admit
I can't grow a cool beard.
You should message me if
You'd tell me if I have something on my glasses.
