Profile Makeover: “Vader” (BEFORE)

The winner of the Geek’s Dream Girl Personal Ad Makeover Contest for July is…


Vader!  (Not his actual name, duh.) At least he was geeky enough to pick an alias that hides behind a helmet!

Vader is a 28-year old man who is finishing up his PhD (which is totally hot, in this geek girl’s opinion.  I love the word “doctorate”.)

Sadly, while being pretty darn cute, his profile has some major red flags that I know my veteran readers will be able to pick out easily.

Let’s see what Vader is presenting to the ladies right now.

Some details have been (adjusted) to protect Vader’s identity:

about me and who I’m looking for:

I’m originally from (west coast) but came to (east coast) for school.

Quite strangely my hobbies send me to more places than my work does. Last month I just got back from Spain. I’ll be going back to asia for a bit later this summer, looking forward to visiting Taiwan for the first time. I used to be a shy kid but after college and going to these conventions in other countries made me realize how fun it is to learn about new cultures and meet new people.

I like to be random, I like to see the humor in everything while maintaining a sufficiently intellectual perspective.

Looking for someone who’s attractive and takes care of herself but otherwise cares more about her passions than about her own looks.

btw don’t write me if you’re just desperate to get married very soon, I’m not into that. Also don’t bother if your main interests are going to bars/clubs or just eating food, that’s kind of boring. Also I have no time for anyone who’s inconsiderate or has an attitude problem.

for fun:

travelling, drawing, photography, woodworking, blacksmithing (for serious), origami, making videos

my job:

working on a PhD, almost done.

favorite hot spots:

Nature, Parks, Chinatown and movies on a weekend, (local attractions), a good museum, or just walking along the (local attraction). Have visited and enjoyed China, Japan, France, UK; especially enjoyed Hong Kong, Tokyo, Paris.

favorite things:

music – mozart, u2, HK and other azn pop, Justin Timberlake, plus I have this thing for movie soundtracks.

animals. when I was a kid, we used to have a lot of really interesting pets. Now we have a dog (@home)

last read:

Wikipedia. it’s just so addictive, even though it doesnt cite its sources. This section needs cleanup.
