Born in the year: 1983
Hobbies and interests: I think we tend to fall into this trap - music, movies, books, gaming, travelling - and while I like all those things, I also love a good conversation. We can talk about the aforementioned things, or we can talk about politics, childhood experiences, past relationships, nerd out about science - anything and everything under the sun, really. Oh, and I can show you what spring is like on Jupiter and Mars.
Other description (u may write a short essay about yourself, to show your personality): I've actually posted here before, a couple of years ago, using a dupe account
. This time around I'm posting with my main - my lowyat history is now an open book! You're barely going to find anything tho. I don't post much here.
I grew up in the 80s and 90s, so a lot of Wong Fei Hung and Stephen Chow movies, plus alternative rock music, Seatle grunge, and electropop (take me oooooon). I went through a phase where I painted my nails black and was all emo (The Black Parade!). Thank god I grew out of it. My parents were bananas - my "mother tongue" is basically English due to their influence, although I did attend Chinese primary and secondary school, so I'm fluent in Mandarin. I also speak a bunch of dialects - Cantonese, Hokkien, Teochew.
I spent my 20s with the wrong girl, and my early 30s with the right one, until things went south. I won't bore you with my dating history here - but you can ask me over coffee if you're curious.
I've been single for 3, maybe 4 years now? Meeting people gets harder the older you get, especially when there's a pandemic limiting your options. Dating apps - I'm hesitant to try them, but I may finally be desperate enough to take the plunge. Who knows?
How would I describe myself? I'm... quirky? Awkward even? I'm outgoing enough to strike up conversations with strangers, tease girls, and joke around, but I can also be a bit of an emotional mess sometimes and just go into "leave me alone" mode, especially when my social battery runs dry. Jokes can be hit or miss, and I get the occasional stare cos I can be kinda weird. Basically, I'm a complex, unique individual, but who isn't? Looks wise... well, I've come to accept that I'm not a handsome fella. But! I'm not overweight, and I maintain a certain standard of hygiene. (It's a high standard! It's just that I tend to be covered in fur - see next paragraph.)
Also, no profile of mine will be complete without mention of my dog. She's my love and my life. She's extremely smart, well trained, and always gets complimented when we're out on walks (ooo she's so well behaved!) She's also supposed to be a chick magnet, but the chicks are... just... way too young. What's the point of having a cute dog if all she does is attract kids and their moms? Haih.
Requirements / preferences: I've dated enough to know what I want - a woman who's confident, smart, and can hold a conversation (in English - sorry, but at the end of the day its just easier to communicate like that). Bonus points if she's witty and quirky and a weirdo like me. Age-wise, late 20s to 30s?
I like them tall and lanky - my current celebrity crush is Shin Hye-sun - but really, looks are secondary. It's not like I'm Gong Yoo.
I'm open to dating outside my race, but eh, I like babi too much and will never ever convert, so yeah...
Anyway, if you actually read through my entire profile, then I think we might hit it off, so drop me a PM?
P.S. I know I've ghosted a few people on here (this account, and also my dupe account). I just find this whole online dating thing really difficult - PMs, texting - I can only sustain them for so long before I lose interest. I'm sorry, and this time around I'm going to try and do better - I'll probably pass you my number pretty early on and then ask you out, provided you're comfortable with it. Deal?This post has been edited by dishwasher: Apr 3 2021, 10:30 PM
