Ahoy! A profile on dating sites obviously do not represent everything about a person so what you read is just an attempt to summarise. If you are not repulsed by or perhaps are even interested in anything here, do send a message. There's very little to lose, potentially a lot to gain and I am always happy to respond to anyone.
I come from an East Asian cultural background but have lived in England since I was 3. From that, I am interested in anyone from Asian and/or Western cultural backgrounds but am happy to talk to anyone regardless of age, background, appearance, religion or sexuality. I've lived in various parts of Yorkshire for most of my life, regularly visit China and spent a year working there teaching English to Chinese students. I also speak Mandarin Chinese... BADLY! In fact, I speak in a northern accent in both English and Chinese.
As a person, I'm introverted, generally easy-going, honest and very open-minded. I over-think yet I am usually quiet. Myers-Briggs tests usually label me as an Introvert and Thinker although the other two parts are not consistent. This is probably said often by people but I am shy at first and will eventually get closer to someone. Of course, communication through text opens me up much quicker although I desire a range of communication methods. I appreciate a good pun, puns are super effective! I may be shy but I'll definitely try to improve myself and my ability to speak if another person seeks conversation.
My hobbies/interests include typical generic stuff such as music, movies and TV shows. I'm quite into skateboarding as a form of social activity, art, transportation and it's also my main method of physical exercise. A silly hobby I have is fingerboarding and I've become stupidly skilled in the useless talent that I'm sponsored for it and compete.
For music, I am quite open minded. I mostly listen to electronica, alternative rock and pop but give me everything else too. Some artists I like: Daft Punk, Justice, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Arctic Monkeys, The Cure, Radiohead, La Roux, Ellie Goulding, Franz Ferdinand, Twisted Machine, Amy Winehouse, Iron Maiden, Cake, Madonna, Britney, Joy Division, The XX, Lords of Acid, White Stripes, Queen, The Libertines, Franz Ferdinand, Pendulum, Yelle, The Futureheads, Soulwax, Does It Offend You, Yeah?, Metallica, Chemical Brothers, Battle, System of a Down, Muse, Death From Above 1979, Digitalism, Cansei de Ser Sexy, Crystal Castles, Frank Klepacki, Futureheads, Mstrkrft, Rage Against The Machine, Ting Tings, The Killers, Bloody Beetroots, The Beatles, Klaxons, Kaiser Chiefs, Magnetic Man, Goldfrapp, Reverend & The Makers, Girls Aloud, Gorillaz, Late of the Pier, No Doubt, Oasis, Cage The Elephant, Noisia, A7X, Run DMC, The Pipettes, Green Day, Saliva, AC/DC, Garbage, Anamanaguchi, Eric B & Rakim, Lovage, The Subways.
I am into most genres of movies but generally favour sci-fi, horror, action, thriller. I'll watch Romantic films if there's something different about them. Some movies I like: Kill Bill, Inception, Alien, Star Wars, Anchorman, Hostel, Frankenstein Girl vs Vampire Girl, Scott Pilgrim, Snatch, Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit, Resident Evil, 28 Days Later, V for Vendetta, The Matrix, Sucker Punch, Star Trek, Iron Man, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Monty Python, The Dark Knight, Se7en, American Beauty, Toy Story, To Kill a Mockingbird, The Prestige, Sin City, Bourne, Death Proof, Catch Me If You Can, Inglourious Basterds, Bond, X-Men, Watchmen, Tropic Thunder, Hot Fuzz, Shawn of the Dead, I am Legend, Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Final Destination, Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon.
I don't watch a lot of shows now. I'll rarely watch something live and everything else is downloaded or streamed on demand. I was never into anime when I was younger but decided to give it a chance when I started university to broaden what I watch. Shows I like: Doctor Who, QI, Mock the Week, Match of the Day, Fate/Zero, Steins;Gate, Death Note, Lucky Star, WWE, TNA, Walking Dead, Big Bang Theory, South Park, Futurama, Angel Beats, Blackadder, X-Files, Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu, MM!, Rozen Maiden, Friends, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, The Office UK/US, Family Guy, Torchwood, Scrubs, American Horror Story, Sherlock, Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann.
Kill me for not being much of a reader. I hope I'll fix this in the future. Books I like: The Hobbit, Fate/Stay Night, Romance of the Three Kingdoms, Tsukihime, Harry Potter, Doctor Who novels.
My first memories of video games were handheld Tetris consoles, then classic Nintendo stuff like Final Fantasy (IV is my favourite), Pokémon, Chrono Trigger, Bomberman, Mario Kart. My favourite fighter series are Tekken, Soul Caliber and King of Fighters. I remember earlier PC games like Lemmings, Unreal and Doom but what really got me into PC games were real time strategy (RTS) games. Starcraft, Warcraft III and their expansions resonated with me but what really got me hooked was the Command & Conquer series. I'm also really good at the Time Crisis series of light-gun operated rail-shooter games; I can complete Time Crisis II without using any continues. Nowadays, I just play League of Legends on a semi-casual basis.
I'll end with a random fact about myself: My name in Japanese is Kin Ki (really!) Whilst that is hilarious, the irony is that whilst I may be considered kinky in a Western country, upon seeing the amazing imaginative offerings of Japanese pornography, I realised I would probably be classed as vanilla in Japan. Tell me a fact about yourself?
